Description Josh Bressers 2006-02-16 14:17:29 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #181772 +++

Jim Meyering discovered and silently fixed a buffer overflow bug in GNU
tar.  It looks exploitable.  There is a public mail message about it here:

My limited testing has shown this issue to only affect tar versions 1.14
and above.

Upstream has asked we not announce this issue until they release an update.

devel too

Comment 4 hkoba 2006-04-20 12:26:56 UTC
BTW, when tar-1.15.1-12.FC4 will be released ;-)
I can't find it in master server:

% curl -s http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/4/i386/|
perl -nle '/href="(tar-[^"]+)/ and print $1'
