Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2013:253
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : libtar
Date : October 18, 2013
Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated libtar packages fixes security vulnerability:

Two heap-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the way libtar
handled certain archives. If a user were tricked into expanding a
specially-crafted archive, it could cause the libtar executable or an
application using libtar to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary
code (CVE-2013-4397).
