Fedora 19 : file-roller-3.8.3-1.fc19 (2013-12667)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes CVE-2013-4668 :

The File Roller archive manager for the GNOME desktop suffers from a
path traversal vulnerability caused by insufficient path sanitization.

A specially crafted archive file can be used to trigger creation of
arbitrary files in any location, writable by the user executing the
extraction, outside the current working directory. This behaviour is
triggered when the option 'Keep directory structure' is selected from
the application 'Extract' dialog.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
