Insight

Insight

The Archive::Tar module provides a mechanism for Perl scripts to manipulate tar archive files. Multiple directory traversal flaws were discovered in the Archive::Tar module. A specially-crafted tar file could cause a Perl script, using the Archive::Tar module to extract the archive, to overwrite an arbitrary file writable by the user running the script. (CVE-2007-4829) This package upgrades the Archive::Tar module to version 1.39_01. Refer to the Archive::Tar module's changes file, linked to in the References, for a full list of changes. Users of perl-Archive-Tar are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which corrects these issues. All applications using the Archive::Tar module must be restarted for this update to take effect.
