FreeBSD Security Advisory



II. Problem Description

If the end of an archive is reached while attempting to “skip" past a region of an archive, libarchive will enter an infinite loop wherein it repeatedly attempts (and fails) to read further data.

III. Impact

An attacker able to cause a system to extract (via “tar -x" or another application which uses libarchive) or list the contents (via “tar -t" or another libarchive-using application) of an archive provided by the attacker can cause libarchive to enter an infinite loop and use all available CPU time.
