Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-1844-01
Posted Sep 12, 2016
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-1844-01 - The libarchive programming library can create and read several different streaming archive formats, including GNU tar, cpio, and ISO 9660 CD-ROM images. Libarchive is used notably in the bsdtar utility, scripting language bindings such as python-libarchive, and several popular desktop file managers. Security Fix: A flaw was found in the way libarchive handled hardlink archive entries of non-zero size. Combined with flaws in libarchive's file system sandboxing, this issue could cause an application using libarchive to overwrite arbitrary files with arbitrary data from the archive.
