Effetti:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in LHA, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

1) A vulnerability caused due to boundary errors in the parsing of archives can be exploited using a specially crafted archive to cause a buffer overflow when a user extracts or tests the archive.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

2) Some boundary errors in the parsing of command-line arguments can be exploited using a specially crafted command-line argument to cause a buffer overflow.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

3) A vulnerability caused due to insufficient validation of shell meta characters in directories can be exploited to inject arbitrary shell commands.

The vulnerabilities have been reported in version 1.14 and prior.
