    Dominik Penner discovered that the Ark archive manager did not sanitise
    extraction paths, which could result in maliciously crafted archives
    writing outside the extraction directory.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4:18.08.3-1+deb10u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ark packages.
