Updated libtar packages that fix one bug are now available for Red HatEnterprise Linux 7.

The libtar packages contain a C library for manipulating tar archives. Thelibrary supports both the strict POSIX tar format and many of the commonlyused GNU extensions.This update fixes the following bug:* Previously, the error handling code in libtar did not properly release filedescriptors before losing track of them. This led to unnecessary file descriptorleakage. An upstream patch has been applied on libtar source code to properlyrelease file descriptors on error paths. Now, libtar no longer leaks filedescriptors. (BZ#785760)Users of libtar are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix thisbug.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevantto your system have been applied.For details on how to apply this update, refer to:https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop FasTrack (v. 7)
