Poco Security Update for Debian 7 LTS

Package : poco
Version : 1.3.6p1-4+deb7u1
CVE ID : CVE-2017-1000472
Debian Bug :

The ZipCommon::isValidPath() function in Zip/src/ZipCommon.cpp in POCO
C++ Libraries before 1.8 does not properly restrict the filename value
in the ZIP header, which allows attackers to conduct absolute path
traversal attacks during the ZIP decompression, and possibly create or
overwrite arbitrary files, via a crafted ZIP file, related to a "file
path injection vulnerability".

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your poco packages.
