Integer signedness error in the archive_write_zip_data function in archive_write_set_format_zip.c in libarchive 3.1.2 and earlier, when running on 64-bit machines, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via unspecified vectors, which triggers an improper conversion between unsigned and signed types, leading to a buffer overflow.
This issue affects the version of libarchive as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this issue as having low
security impact, a future update may address this flaw.
