Issue #36462 contains more information. The reporter claims that the zipfile module is inherent insecure because it does not provide any heuristics to make zipbomb attacks harder.

I'm -1 to implement such a heuristic. The zipfile module is a low level module and should not limit extraction by defaykt. Instead we should improve documentation and maybe implement some method that simplifies detection of zipbomb attacks. I'm thinking about a method that returns total count of files, total compressed size and total uncompressed size.
