A directory traversal attack was reported against libtar, a C library
for manipulating tar archives. The application does not validate the
filenames inside the tar archive, allowing to extract files in
arbitrary path. An attacker can craft a tar file to override files
beyond the tar_extract_glob and tar_extract_all prefix parameter
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Update the affected libtar and / or libtar-devel packages.
