Comment 1 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-23 16:09:43 UTC
* Security fix: a check in the user form processing was not working as
  expected, leading to a major ACL and superuser priviledge escalation
  problem. If you use ACL entries other than "Known:" or "All:" and/or
  a non-empty superuser list, you need to urgently install this upgrade.
