Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-08-13 07:58:17 UTC

directory index files:


Upstream patches are available at [2] as well.



It was reported [1] that CUPS does not check that files have world-readable permissions, which 
allow to local users to obtain sensitive information.

Comment 2 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2014-09-06 19:01:20 UTC
This is fixed in CUPS 1.7.5, which I just added to the tree. 
Let's wait a week and then stabilize it.
Comment 3 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2014-09-10 18:18:38 UTC
I don't see any additional bug reports coming in from the 1.7.4 -> 1.7.5 update, so let's continue. 

Arches please fast-stabilize net-print/cups-1.7.5
Target: all stable arches
