Exploitable: local, remote
Bug(s): #699222, #710358
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in libarchive, the worst
of which may lead to arbitrary code execution.
libarchive is a library for manipulating different streaming archive
formats, including certain tar variants, several cpio formats, and both
BSD and GNU ar variants.
Vulnerable: < 3.4.2
Unaffected: >= 3.4.2
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in libarchive. Please
review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
archive file possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libarchive users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-arch/libarchive-3.4.2"
