Slackware New tar packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, and 11.0 to fix a security issue.
[slackware-security]  tar (SSA:2006-335-01)

New tar packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1,
10.2, and 11.0 to fix a security issue.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-6097


Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/tar-1.16-i486-1_slack11.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to tar-1.16.
  This fixes an issue where files may be extracted outside of the current
  directory, possibly allowing a malicious tar archive, when extracted, to
  overwrite any of the user's files (in the case of root, any file on the
  system).
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-6097
  (* Security fix *)

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
