PACKAGE   : lha
SUMMARY   : Buffer overflow and directory traversal vulnerabilities
DATE      : 2004-05-06 18:20:00
ID        : CLA-2004:840

DESCRIPTION
 Lha is an archiving and compression utility for LHarc format
 archives.
 
 Ulf Härnhammar discovered a buffer overflow[1] and a directory
 traversal [2]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.


SOLUTION
 All users of the lha utility should upgrade.
