Fedora Update Notification

Name : lha
Version : 1.14i
Release : 12.1
Summary : An archiving and compression utility for LHarc format
Description :
LHA is an archiving and compression utility for LHarc format archives. LHA is mostly used in the DOS world, but can be used under Linux to extract DOS files from LHA archives.

Install the lha package if you need to extract DOS files from LHA archives.

Update Information:

Ulf Härnhammar discovered two stack buffer overflows and two directory traversal flaws in LHA. An attacker could exploit the buffer overflows by creating a carefully crafted LHA archive in such a way that arbitrary code would be executed when the archive is tested or extracted by a victim. CAN-2004-0234. An attacker could exploit the directory traversal issues to create files as the victim outside of the expected directory. CAN-2004-0235.
