Could you please comment directly about the likelihood of
exploitability for code execution? See the
http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2015/10/11/5 post. We
currently feel that a CVE assignment for a non-exploitable unzip crash
on BusyBox may be unlikely, because BusyBox wouldn't realistically be
used for deployment of a program that remains running to offer an
unzipping service to multiple clients.
