Summary: An updated perl-Archive-Tar package that fixes multiple security issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - noarch 3. Description: 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. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259 5.
