View File libarchive-3.1.3-CVE-2013-0211_read_buffer_overflow.patch of Package libarchive (Project home:wrzof:gate:gate_git)

From 22531545514043e04633e1c015c7540b9de9dbe4 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001
From: Tim Kientzle <kientzle@acm.org>
Date: Fri, 22 Mar 2013 23:48:41 -0700
Subject: [PATCH] Limit write requests to at most INT_MAX. This prevents a
 certain common programming error (passing -1 to write) from leading to other
 problems deeper in the library.
