    Package        : tar
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : local(remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0300
    Debian Bug     : 314805
    
    Jim Meyering discovered several buffer overflows in GNU tar, which may
    lead to the execution of arbitrary code through specially crafted tar
    archives.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.14-2.1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.15.1-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tar package.
