netpbm is graphics conversion toolkit made up of a large number of single-purpose programs. Many of these programs were found to create temporary files in an insecure manner, which could allow a local attacker to overwrite files with the privileges of the user invoking a vulnerable netpbm tool.
This is important. We're talking about tar, that sticky software that bonds files together into one big ball. It's one of the most important programs you'll learn to use from the Linux CLI. Why? Because most free/open source software makes use of tar in distributing itself, that's why. So unless you know - at a minimum - how to untar a tarball, you will remain cut off from a vital flow, nay, from the heartbeat of free/open source software. That's why tar is a necessary skill for you to learn. That, and the fact you need to know how to use it to earn your CLI merit-badge.
