Debian DLA-3015-1 : ark - LTS security update

low Nessus Plugin ID 161432

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing one or more security-related updates.

Description

The remote Debian 9 host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the dla-3015 advisory.

- In kerfuffle/jobs.cpp in KDE Ark before 20.08.0, a crafted archive can install files outside the extraction directory via ../ directory traversal. (CVE-2020-16116)

- In KDE Ark before 20.08.1, a crafted TAR archive with symlinks can install files outside the extraction directory, as demonstrated by a write operation to a user's home directory. (CVE-2020-24654)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade the ark packages.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 4
