Summary:

USN-4937-1 introduced a regression in GNOME Autoar.

Software Description:
- gnome-autoar: Archive integration support for GNOME

Details:

USN-4937-1 fixed a vulnerability in GNOME Autoar. The update caused a
regression when extracting certain archives. This update fixes the problem.

 locations, possibly leading to code execution.
