From NVD

CVE-2020-36241 Detail
Current Description

autoar-extractor.c in GNOME gnome-autoar through 0.2.4, as used by GNOME Shell, Nautilus, and other software, allows Directory Traversal during extraction because it lacks a check of whether a file's parent is a symlink to a directory outside of the intended extraction location.

NVD marks it as Medium, so let's go with that. However it could be exploitable through automatic indexing in Tracker, so I'm kind of on the fence about that.
