What is Directory traversal in archivers?

that allowed one to create malicous archive files,
which would overwrite system files or place dangerous
files in defined directory(example :shell.php in
wwwroot directory)
This could be abused by sending an archive to a local
user who would unzip / untar an archive, the archive
would then be able to overwrite any file to which the
user has write permissions, thus it could also be
abused if a system ran som antivirus software which
automatically opened archive files.

harmless exploit:
use HEAP [Hamid Evil Archive Pack]
