Description

Multiple security vulnerabilities were found in libarchive, a multi-format archive and compression library. Heap-based buffer over-reads, NULL pointer dereferences and out-of-bounds reads allow remote attackers to cause a denial-of-service (application crash) via specially crafted archive files.
