Package : libarchive
CVE ID : CVE-2024-26256
Debian Bug : 1072107

An integer overflow vulnerability in the rar e8 filter was discovered in
libarchive, a multi-format archive and compression library, which may
result in the execution of arbitrary code if a specially crafted RAR
archive is processed.

For the stable distribution (bookworm), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.6.2-1+deb12u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libarchive packages.
