This issue is similar to: issue2728. org.apache.commons:commons-compress:1.14 is subject to two medium severity denial of service CVEs: 

CVE-2018-11771 ( When reading a specially crafted ZIP archive, the read method of Apache Commons Compress 1.7 to 1.17's ZipArchiveInputStream can fail to return the correct EOF indication after the end of the stream has been reached. When combined with a this can lead to an infinite stream, which can be used to mount a denial of service attack against services that use Compress' zip package.

CVE-2018-1324 ( - A specially crafted ZIP archive can be used to cause an infinite loop inside of Apache Commons Compress' extra field parser used by the ZipFile and ZipArchiveInputStream classes in versions 1.11 to 1.15. This can be used to mount a denial of service attack against services that use Compress' zip package.

Please upgrade to 1.18 (or later) before 2.7.2 is released (hopefully soon?).
