Description Pedro Sampaio 2021-07-30 19:53:47 UTC
In Archive_Tar before 1.4.14, symlinks can refer to targets outside of the extracted archive, a different vulnerability than CVE-2020-36193.



Comment 2 Garrett Tucker 2021-08-02 16:23:39 UTC
After analysis, the issue stems from a lack of checking if a symlink was outside of the archive. Since this check was not made, symlinks could be followed outside of the archive and lead to modification of the filesystem outside of the archive which could result in affecting existing files or creation of new files.
