I'm experiencing a big weird issue. I have updated 3 days ago from Magento 2.2.3 to 2.2.6. Everything went just fine. But on the day after the update, I received a warning from server health monitor regarding a disk space issue. A file had been created on sever root, in /tmp/analytics folder:

~tmp-1537660818.7487tar.tar : 11G

3 days after that, I have 3 files in that folder:

~tmp-1537660818.7487tar.tar : 11G

~tmp-1537747210.659tar.tar : 6,5M

~tmp-1537833608.7409tar.tar : 2G

File owner is the website owner. When I open file with terminal, I get endless lines repetitions :

x order_addresses.csv
x ../: Path contains '..'
x .././: Path contains '..'
x ../././: Path contains '..'
x .././././: Path contains '..'
x ../././././: Path contains '..'
x .././././././: Path contains '..'
x ../././././././: Path contains '..'
x .././././././././: Path contains '..'
x ../././././././././: Path contains '..'
x .././././././././././: Path contains '..'
x ../././././././././././: Path contains '..'

Files seem to be created along with the database backup each night. But I can't find logic between database backup and csv files. I disabled database backup for the coming night to see if the problem remains.

I found 2 files mentionning order_addresses:

vendor/magento/module-sales-analytics/etc/analytics.xml

vendor/magento/module-sales-analytics/etc/reports.xml

Any idea on what could cause this issue ?

**** EDIT 1 ****

Disabling the database auto backup did not change my issue. Tonight a 6.5M file has been created. I will not delete this one as it's not a big problem of disk space and keep on checking this issue.

**** EDIT 2 ****

Uncompressing the tar files with tar ztvf yourfile.tar.gz gives me other results:

-rw-rw-r--  0 domainuser psacln 100669 26 sep 02:00 order_addresses.csv
drwxrwxr-x  0 domainuser psacln      0 26 sep 02:00 ../
drwxrwxr-x  0 domainuser psacln      0 26 sep 02:00 .././
drwxrwxr-x  0 domainuser psacln      0 26 sep 02:00 ../././
drwxrwxr-x  0 domainuser psacln      0 26 sep 02:00 .././././
drwxrwxr-x  0 domainuser psacln      0 26 sep 02:00 ../././././
drwxrwxr-x  0 domainuser psacln      0 26 sep 02:00 .././././././
drwxrwxr-x  0 domainuser psacln      0 26 sep 02:00 ../././././././
drwxrwxr-x  0 domainuser psacln      0 26 sep 02:00 .././././././././

Last night the server got stuck again with a 13G file.

**** EDIT 3 ****

I tried to open the file with 7zX, it loops endlessly. I also tried with an application called Décompresser (2.0.2), and it creates a folder with an error alert. The folder contains a order_addresses.csv file with 5 columns : entity_id, customer_id, city, region, country_id. But I can't find what creates or tries to create, or at least tries to handle that file every night...

Again, only place I can find order_addresses mentionned is in vendor/magento/module-sales-analytics... Any idea ?

**** EDIT 4 ****

module-sales-analytics seems to be used by Advanced Reporting module which on my side is very buggy from the start! It always leads me to a 404. I will try to reconfigure the module, or disable it.

**** EDIT 5 ****

Setup / Configuration:

Linux dedicated server 
CentOS 6.9 
Plesk Onyx Version 17.5.3 
PHP 7.0.32 
Document root : httpdocs/pub 
Include_path : .:/var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/httpdocs/vendor/magento/zendframework1/library

**** EDIT 6 ****

Reauthorizing Magento Analytics user did not change the thing, still got a 13G file this night. I just disabled Advanced Reporting module to see the change.

**** EDIT 7 ****

Disabling Advanced Reporting module solved the issue, but it's not the best solution I think, more of a workaround. I tried to reach Advanced Reporting module devs but no answers.

    You must check the extension which have crons and also check the cron execution time interval and number of crons added to server. – Saphal Jha Sep 28 '18 at 9:19
  • Hi, thanks for your answer. Yes, indeed I think I found which module is causing my troubles, I just added an edit in my question. – David Sep 28 '18 at 9:33
  • ahh, great.. :) – Saphal Jha Sep 28 '18 at 9:43
  • You are certainly not the only one ;) Thanks for sharing. Did the code fix also resolve the 404 error or just the disk space topic (never made advanced reporting running - unfortunately)? Thanks! – IRM Nov 19 '18 at 8:21

I checked this issue again, seems like I was not the only one facing this.

Problem seems to be fixed with this commit: https://github.com/magento/magento2/commit/8e1a5d342cbc63f58529b6c25be41c7d9a979a66

Some code has to be changed:

$dirFiles = array_diff($dirFiles, ['..', '.']);

instead of

array_shift($dirFiles);
/* remove  './'*/
array_shift($dirFiles);
/* remove  '../'*/

around line 262 in lib/internal/Magento/Framework/Archive/Tar.php or vendor/magento/framework/Archive/Tar.php depending on the install.

The fix worked for me.
