This could be used to mount a denial of service attack against services that use Compress' tar package. Mitigation: Commons Compress users should upgrade to 1.21 or later. Credit: This issue was discovered by OSS Fuzz. References: https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-compress/security-reports.html
