Subject: Possible "new" CVE for Zoo directory traversal

Package: zoo
Version: 2.10-27+b1
Tags: security

Either the fix for CVE-2005-2349 (bug #309594) wasn't complete, or it
bit-rotted, because Zoo is still susceptible to directory traversal:

$ pwd

$ zoo x traversal.zoo
Zoo:  /tmp/moo       -- extracted

$ ls -l /tmp/moo
-rw-r--r-- 1 jwilk users 4 Jan  5  2015 /tmp/moo

The script I used to create the test case is available at:
