archive_read_support_format_tar.c in libarchive before 2.2.4 does not
properly compute the length of a certain buffer when processing a
malformed pax extension header, which allows user-assisted remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute
arbitrary code via a crafted (1) PAX or (2) TAR archive that triggers
a buffer overflow.
