Description

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.
