An issue has been found in squashfs-tools, a tool to create and append to squashfs filesystems. As unsquashfs did not validate all filepaths, it would allow writing outside of the original destination.

For Debian 8 jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1:4.2+20130409-2+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your squashfs-tools packages.
