An updated star package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The star utility is a tape- and disk-archiving tool similar to tar that supports saving Access Control List (ACLs) permission information.
- Under certain circumstances, the star utility could have terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault when used with a file which name was exactly 100 characters long. This segmentation fault has been fixed in this update and no longer occurs.
All users of star are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
