https://github.com/libarchive/libarchive/issues/1216 - explanation as to why we can't find it
CVE-2018-1000877 A double-free issue has been found in libarchive >= 3.1.0 and <=3.3.3, in the parse_codes() function in archive_read_support_format_rar.c. An attacker can use a specially crafted RAR file to cause a call to realloc with a size of 0, effectively freeing the memory which will be freed again at a later time. CVE-2018-1000878 A use-after-free issue has been found in libarchive >= 3.1.0 and <=3.3.3, in the archive_read_format_rar_read_header() function in archive_read_support_format_rar.c. An attacker can use a specially crafted RAR file to cause the vulnerable function to free the buffer and allocate a new one, causing the ppmd7 decoder to continue reading from and writing to the freed buffer. CVE-2018-1000879 A NULL-pointer dereference issue has been found in libarchive >= 3.3.0 and <=3.3.3, in the archive_acl_from_text_l() function in archive_acl.c. An attacker can use a specially crafted archive file to cause a crash via a malformed ACL. CVE-2018-1000880 A resource consumption issue has been found in libarchive >= 3.2.0 and <=3.3.3, in the _warc_read() function in archive_read_support_format_warm.c. An attacker can use a specially crafted WARC file to cause quasi-infinite run time and disk usage from a tiny file. CVE-2019-1000019 libarchive version >=v3.0.2 contains a CWE-125: Out-of-bounds Read vulnerability in 7zip decompression, archive_read_support_format_7zip.c, header_bytes() that can result in a crash (denial of service). This attack appears to be exploitable via the victim opening a specially crafted 7zip file. CVE-2019-1000020 libarchive version >=v2.8.0 contains a CWE-835: Loop with Unreachable Exit Condition ('Infinite Loop') vulnerability in ISO9660 parser, archive_read_support_format_iso9660.c, read_CE()/parse_rockridge() that can result in DoS by infinite loop. This attack appears to be exploitable via the victim opening a specially crafted ISO9660 file.
