I know what a directory traversal is. I did a little test run of this
"bug." For sanitary reasons, I did not install arj when I compiled it.
It was merely moved to ~/test. Here is what I've done to test what you
are saying:

---------------<snip>----------------
<window #1>
  root () chris:/usr/local/bin# touch test.txt
  root () chris:/usr/local/bin# chown root.root test.txt
<window #2>
  chris () chris:~/test$ arj a test.arj ../../../usr/local/bin/test.txt

  root () chris:/usr/local/bin# ls -l test.txt
  -rw-r--r--  1 root root 13 2012-11-11 02:42 test.txt
--------------------------------------------

Apart from it removing one "../" from the filename I gave it, it
worked exactly as I expected.
