Conectiva Linux Advisory: lhaMay 10, 2004, 19:14 (0 Talkback[s])
CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT
PACKAGE : lha
Ulf Harnhammar discovered a buffer overflow and a directory traversal vulnerability in the lha utility. Both vulnerabilities can be exploited by an attacker with the use of specially crafted LHarc archives. When processed by lha, these files may cause it to execute arbitrary code (exploiting the buffer overflow vulnerability) or overwrite arbitrary files if the user unpacking the malicious archive has sufficient filesystem permissions to do so (exploiting the directory traversal vulnerability).
This update fixes both issues.
