Date:  Tue, 21 Feb 2006 09:41:34 -0500

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - --------------------------------------------------------------------- Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Low: tar security update Advisory ID: RHSA-2006:0195-01 Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2006-0195.html Issue date: 2006-02-21 Updated on: 2006-02-21 Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux CVE Names: CVE-2005-1918 - --------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Summary: An updated tar package that fixes a path traversal flaw is now available. This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64 Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386 Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64 3. Problem description: The GNU tar program saves many files together in one archive and can restore individual files (or all of the files) from that archive. In 2002, a path traversal flaw was found in the way GNU tar extracted archives. A malicious user could create a tar archive that could write to arbitrary files to which the user running GNU tar has write access (CVE-2002-0399). Red Hat included a backported security patch to correct this issue in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, and an erratum for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 users was issued. During internal testing, we discovered that our backported security patch contained an incorrect optimization and therefore was not sufficient to completely correct this vulnerability. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) assigned the name CVE-2005-1918 to this issue. Users of tar should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a replacement backported patch to correct this issue. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command: up2date For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the following Web page for the System Administration or Customization guide specific to your system: http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/ 5.
