Package : libarchive CVE ID : CVE-2016-5418 CVE-2016-6250 CVE-2016-7166 Debian Bug : 837714

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in libarchive, a multi-format archive and compression library, which may lead to denial of service (memory consumption and application crash), bypass of sandboxing restrictions and overwrite arbitrary files with arbitrary data from an archive, or the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 3.1.2-11+deb8u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your libarchive packages.
