Archive::Tar is a Perl module for creation and manipulation of tar
Jonathan Smith of rPath reported that Archive::Tar does not check for
".." in file names.
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to extract a
specially crafted tar archive, overwriting files at arbitrary locations
outside of the specified directory.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Archive::Tar users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=perl-core/Archive-Tar-1.40&quot;</code>
