Libarchive CVE-2015-8934 Local Heap Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

libarchive is prone to a local heap-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to adequately bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer.

Local attackers can exploit this issue obtain potentially sensitive information; this may aid in further attacks. Failed exploit attempts will result in denial-of-service conditions.
