Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59195
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-506-1 (tar)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-506-1 (tar)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to tar
announced via advisory USN-506-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 7.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Details follow:

Dmitry V. Levin discovered that tar did not correctly detect the ..
file path element when unpacking archives. If a user or an automated
system were tricked into unpacking a specially crafted tar file, arbitrary
files could be overwritten with user privileges.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
tar 1.15.1-2ubuntu2.2

Ubuntu 6.10:
tar 1.15.91-2ubuntu0.4

Ubuntu 7.04:
tar 1.16-2ubuntu0.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
