Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56340
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2006:0232
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2006:0232.

The GNU tar program saves many files together in one archive and can
restore individual files (or all of the files) from that archive.

Jim Meyering discovered a buffer overflow bug in the way GNU tar extracts
malformed archives. By tricking a user into extracting a malicious tar
archive, it is possible to execute arbitrary code as the user running tar.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) assigned
the name CVE-2006-0300 to this issue.

Users of tar should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
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
