Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56303
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2006:0195
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2006:0195.

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.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
