    well as various other kinds of manipulation.

  <description>
    <p>
    Dmitry V. Levin discovered a directory traversal vulnerability in the
    contains_dot_dot() function in file src/names.c.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>
    By enticing a user to extract a specially crafted tar archive, a remote
    attacker could extract files to arbitrary locations outside of the
    specified directory with the permissions of the user running GNU Tar.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All GNU Tar users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-arch/tar-1.18-r2&quot;</code>
  </resolution>
