Package : ant Version : 1.9.4-3+deb8u1 CVE ID : CVE-2018-10886

unzip and untar target tasks in ant allows the extraction of files outside the target directory. A crafted zip or tar file submitted to an Ant build could create or overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running Ant.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version 1.9.4-3+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ant packages.
