Debian: New libarchive1 packages fix several problems

Several local/remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in libarchive1, a single library to read/write tar, cpio, pax, zip, iso9660, archives. It was discovered that libarchive1 would miscompute the length of a buffer resulting in a buffer overflow if yet another type of corruption occurred in a pax extension header. It was discovered that if an archive prematurely ended within a pax extension header the libarchive1 library could enter an infinite loop. If an archive prematurely ended within a tar header, immediately following a pax extension header, libarchive1 could dereference a NULL pointer. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.

Several local/remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in libarchive1,
a single library to read/write tar, cpio, pax, zip, iso9660, archives.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
problems:

CVE-2007-3641

 It was discovered that libarchive1 would miscompute the length of a buffer
 resulting in a buffer overflow if yet another type of corruption occurred
 in a pax extension header.

CVE-2007-3644

 It was discovered that if an archive prematurely ended within a pax
 extension header the libarchive1 library could enter an infinite loop.

CVE-2007-3645

 If an archive prematurely ended within a tar header, immediately following
 a pax extension header, libarchive1 could dereference a NULL pointer.


The old stable distribution (sarge), does not contain this package.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.2.53-2etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.2.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libarchive package.
