18 Apr 2020
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 956638.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2020-11736.
More information:

fr-archive-libarchive.c in GNOME file-roller through 3.36.1 allows Directory Traversal during extraction because it lacks a check of whether a file's parent is a symlink to a directory outside of the intended extraction location.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 3.14.1-1+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your file-roller packages.
