Foresight Linux Essential Advisory: 2007-0051-1
Published: 2007-09-06

Rating: Severe

Updated Versions:
star=/conary.rpath.com@rpl:devel//1/1.5a60-4.3-1
group-dist=/foresight.rpath.org@fl:1-devel//1/1.3.2-0.17-1

https://issues.rpath.com/browse/RPL-1631
https://issues.rpath.com/browse/RPL-1669

Description:
Previous versions of star, an archival program, are vulnerable to an
attack in which unpacking an intentionally-malformed tar archive can
overwrite arbitrary files to which the user running tar has write access.
If unpacked by a superuser, this can lead to arbitrary code execution at
root permission levels.
