Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:045
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : libtar
Date : February 20, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A directory traversal attack was reported against libtar, a C library
for manipulating tar archives. The application does not validate
the filenames inside the tar archive, allowing to extract files in
arbitrary path. An attacker can craft a tar file to override files
beyond the tar_extract_glob and tar_extract_all prefix parameter
(CVE-2013-4420).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
