|Description||** DISPUTED ** chmextract.c in the chmextract sample program, as distributed with libmspack before 0.8alpha, does not protect against absolute/relative pathnames in CHM files, leading to Directory Traversal. NOTE: the vendor disputes that this is a libmspack vulnerability, because chmextract.c was only intended as a source-code example, not a supported application.|

src/chmextract.c was renamed from originally test/chmx.c
This sample code is not installed into the binary packages and was as well
never the idea to use it in "productised" binaries, but rather just simple
examples of the library use.
