            Bug ID: 12306
           Summary: xz applet not reporting errors
           Product: Busybox
           Version: 1.31.x
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Other
          Assignee: unassigned at busybox.net
          Reporter: yetanothergeek at gmail.com
                CC: busybox-cvs at busybox.net
  Target Milestone: ---

With previous versions of busybox the xz applet would report an error and exit
with error status if the input was invalid:

echo ThisIsNotXZ | busybox xz -dc ; echo $?

xz: corrupted data

But the latest version does not show any error message and exits with zero:

echo ThisIsNotXZ | busybox xz -dc ; echo $?

I have not checked for sure, but this might be caused by commit

"dpkg-deb: work around bogus error message when working with XZ compressed
