Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.58942
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0873
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0873.

Star is a tar-like archiver. It saves multiple files into a single tape or
disk archive, and can restore individual files from the archive. Star
includes multi-volume support, automatic archive format detection and ACL
support.

A path traversal flaw was discovered in the way star extracted archives. A
malicious user could create a tar archive that would cause star to write to
arbitrary files to which the user running star had write access.
(CVE-2007-4134)

Red Hat would like to thank Robert Buchholz for reporting this issue.

As well, this update adds the command line argument -.. to the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 3 version of star. This allows star to extract files
containing /../ in their pathname.

Users of star should upgrade to this updated package, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues.

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
