Debian DSA-4360-1 : libarchive - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 119893

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Multiple security issues were found in libarchive, a multi-format archive and compression library: Processing malformed RAR archives could result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code and malformed WARC, LHarc, ISO, Xar or CAB archives could result in denial of service.

Solution

Upgrade the libarchive packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 3.2.2-2+deb9u1.
