 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:253
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : libtar
 Date    : October 18, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated libtar packages fixes security vulnerability:
 
 Two heap-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the way libtar
 handled certain archives. If a user were tricked into expanding a
 specially-crafted archive, it could cause the libtar executable or an
 application using libtar to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary
 code (CVE-2013-4397).
