CVE-2005-2541 1 Gnu 1 Tar 2021-06-18 10.0 HIGH N/A
Tar 1.15.1 does not properly warn the user when extracting setuid or setgid files, which may allow local users or remote attackers to gain privileges.
CVE-2021-20193 1 Gnu 1 Tar 2021-06-03 4.3 MEDIUM 5.5 MEDIUM
A flaw was found in the src/list.c of tar 1.33 and earlier. This flaw allows an attacker who can submit a crafted input file to tar to cause uncontrolled consumption of memory. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability.
CVE-2007-4476 3 Canonical, Debian, Gnu 3 Ubuntu Linux, Debian Linux, Tar 2021-05-17 7.5 HIGH N/A
Buffer overflow in the safer_name_suffix function in GNU tar has unspecified attack vectors and impact, resulting in a "crashing stack."
CVE-2018-20482 3 Debian, Gnu, Opensuse 3 Debian Linux, Tar, Leap 2019-10-03 1.9 LOW 4.7 MEDIUM
GNU Tar through 1.30, when --sparse is used, mishandles file shrinkage during read access, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (infinite read loop in sparse_dump_region in sparse.c) by modifying a file that is supposed to be archived by a different user's process (e.g., a system backup running as root).
CVE-2019-9923 2 Gnu, Opensuse 2 Tar, Leap 2019-04-24 5.0 MEDIUM 7.5 HIGH
pax_decode_header in sparse.c in GNU Tar before 1.32 had a NULL pointer dereference when parsing certain archives that have malformed extended headers.
CVE-2006-0300 1 Gnu 1 Tar 2018-10-19 5.1 MEDIUM N/A
Buffer overflow in tar 1.14 through 1.15.90 allows user-assisted attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute code via unspecified vectors involving PAX extended headers.
CVE-2005-1918 2 Gnu, Redhat 4 Tar, Enterprise Linux, Enterprise Linux Desktop and 1 more 2018-10-19 2.6 LOW N/A
The original patch for a GNU tar directory traversal vulnerability (CVE-2002-0399) in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 2.1 uses an "incorrect optimization" that allows user-assisted attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via a crafted tar file, probably involving "/../" sequences with a leading "/".
CVE-2002-0399 1 Gnu 1 Tar 2018-10-19 5.0 MEDIUM N/A
Directory traversal vulnerability in GNU tar 1.13.19 through 1.13.25, and possibly later versions, allows attackers to overwrite arbitrary files during archive extraction via a (1) "/.." or (2) "./.." string, which removes the leading slash but leaves the "..", a variant of CVE-2001-1267.
CVE-2006-6097 1 Gnu 1 Tar 2018-10-17 4.0 MEDIUM N/A
GNU tar 1.16 and 1.15.1, and possibly other versions, allows user-assisted attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via a tar file that contains a GNUTYPE_NAMES record with a symbolic link, which is not properly handled by the extract_archive function in extract.c and extract_mangle function in mangle.c, a variant of CVE-2002-1216.
CVE-2007-4131 3 Gnu, Redhat, Rpath 4 Tar, Enterprise Linux, Enterprise Linux Desktop and 1 more 2018-10-15 6.8 MEDIUM N/A
Directory traversal vulnerability in the contains_dot_dot function in src/names.c in GNU tar allows user-assisted remote attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via certain //.. (slash slash dot dot) sequences in directory symlinks in a TAR archive.
CVE-2010-0624 1 Gnu 2 Cpio, Tar 2018-10-10 6.8 MEDIUM N/A
Heap-based buffer overflow in the rmt_read__ function in lib/rtapelib.c in the rmt client functionality in GNU tar before 1.23 and GNU cpio before 2.11 allows remote rmt servers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly execute arbitrary code by sending more data than was requested, related to archive filenames that contain a : (colon) character.
CVE-2016-6321 1 Gnu 1 Tar 2017-07-01 5.0 MEDIUM 7.5 HIGH
Directory traversal vulnerability in the safer_name_suffix function in GNU tar 1.14 through 1.29 might allow remote attackers to bypass an intended protection mechanism and write to arbitrary files via vectors related to improper sanitization of the file_name parameter, aka POINTYFEATHER.
CVE-2002-1216 1 Gnu 1 Tar 2016-10-18 5.0 MEDIUM N/A
GNU tar 1.13.19 and other versions before 1.13.25 allows remote attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack, as the result of a modification that effectively disabled the security check.
CVE-2001-1267 1 Gnu 1 Tar 2008-09-05 2.1 LOW N/A
Directory traversal vulnerability in GNU tar 1.13.19 and earlier allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files during archive extraction via a tar file whose filenames contain a .. (dot dot).
