./archivers/cabextract, Microsoft cabinet (.CAB) file extractor

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.9.1, Package name: cabextract-1.9.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

cabextract is a program that un-archives files in the Microsoft
cabinet file format (.cab) or any binary file which contains an
embedded cabinet file (frequently found in .exe files).

cabextract will extract all files from all cabinet files specified on
the command line

To extract a multi-part cabinet consisting of several files, only give
the first file as an argument to cabextract as it will automatically
look for the remaining files.

cabextract: update to 1.9.

Set TEST_TARGET.

New in 1.9
* Fixed invisible bad extraction when using cabextract -F (broken in 1.8)
* Fixed configure --with-external-libmspack which was broken in 1.8
* configure --with-external-libmspack will now use pkg-config. To configure
  it manually, set environment variables libmspack_CFLAGS and libmspack_LIBS
  before running configure.

New in 1.8
* cabextract -f now extracts even more badly damaged files than before

Log message:
SECURITY: Update cabextract to 1.6.

It fixes CVE-2015-2060, a directory traversal vulnerability.
A CAB file with overlong UTF-8 encodings for "/" can get its files \ 
extracted to
an absolute path instead of the current directory. [Debian bug #778753]
Under Cygwin, a CAB file using both "/" and "\" can evade \ 
checks for absolute
files and "../" directory traversals and can get its files extracted to any
path.

  cabinet files. These crashes and hangs have been fixed.
