The AIX operating system is not vulnerable to the ZIP archive exploits mentioned above through the compression/decompression utilities that ship with the base operating system.
As always, it's a good idea to list the contents of any archive file before unpacking and understand what changes may result from that action.
The vendor has not provided us with any further information regarding this vulnerability.
The CERT/CC has no additional comments at this time.
