Description Josh Bressers 2004-11-11 14:47:02 UTC
This message was posted to full-disclosure


after decoding it, it basically says there is a directory traversal
hole in unarj.

It is possible for an attacker to create a specially crafted arj
archive, which when a user extracts with the x flag, it is possible
for a file to be placed anywhere the user running arj has write
