Zip with symlink in it


I read that zip files can contain symlinks. I want to test what our software library does with such symlinks and whether this is a security concern for our server.

Therefore I'm in need of such a zip file. However, I'm not able to create one. Does anyone have a sample file or at least can tell me how to create one myself?

I've got Winzip, WinRAR and 7zip and I didn't manage to create such a zip with either one 🙁

For 7z, WIM and TAR can contain symbolic links. I don't think ZIP can contain symbolic links in windows.
