Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:219: tar

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the tar package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:219 (tar).

GNU tar 1.16 and 1.15.1, and possibly other versions, permits
user-assisted attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via a tar file
that contains a GNUTYPE_NAMES record with a symbolic link, which is not
properly handled by the extract_archive function in extract.c and
extract_mangle function in mangle.c, a variant of CVE-2002-1216.
The updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
