    Debian Bug     : 969437
    
    Fabian Vogt reported that the Ark archive manager did not sanitise
    extraction paths, which could result in maliciously crafted archives
    with symlinks writing outside the extraction directory.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4:18.08.3-1+deb10u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ark packages.
