Severity: important

The following vulnerability was published for ruby-zip.

| In Rubyzip before 1.3.0, a crafted ZIP file can bypass application
| checks on ZIP entry sizes because data about the uncompressed size can
| be spoofed. This allows attackers to cause a denial of service (disk
| consumption).

If you fix the vulnerability please also make sure to include the
CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id in your changelog entry.
