Multiple directory traversal flaws were discovered in the Archive::Tar
module. A specially-crafted tar file could cause a Perl script, using
the Archive::Tar module to extract the archive, to overwrite an
arbitrary file writable by the user running the script.
This package upgrades the Archive::Tar module to version 1.39_01.
All applications using the Archive::Tar module must be restarted for
this update to take effect.
