Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56339
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-257-1 (tar)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-257-1 (tar)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to tar
announced via advisory USN-257-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected: tar

Jim Meyering discovered that tar did not properly verify the validity
of certain header fields in a GNU tar archive. By tricking an user
into processing a specially crafted tar archive, this could be
exploited to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user.

The tar version in Ubuntu 4.10 is not affected by this vulnerability.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1.14-2ubuntu0.1 (for Ubuntu 5.04), or 1.15.1-2ubuntu0.1 (for
Ubuntu 5.10). In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to
effect the necessary changes.
