Changelog

tar (1.15.1-2ubuntu2.3) dapper-security; urgency=low

  * SECURITY UPDATE: stack-based buffer overflow with malicious tar files
    - src/names.c: updated src/names.c to rewrite hash_string_prefix as
      hash_string_insert_prefix and adjust safer_name_suffix to use
      hash_string_insert_prefix to avoid stack allocation
    - patch from upstream paxlib commits:
      http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=paxutils.git;a=commitdiff;h=b9199bbdefd32382953dd8c01ec881e5463c5a88

    - CVE-2007-4476
    - LP: #180299
  * adjust tests/pipe.at pipe the output from `tar xfv' through sort and
    regenerate tests/testsuite with autom4ke to get tests working again (how
    did it ever successfully build before?)
