CVE-2009-3564 (

  to access restricted files.
Comment 1 Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2010-02-06 14:54:39 UTC
Seems already fixed (haven't checked), needs a GLSA vote.
Vote: yes.
Comment 2 Luca Lesinigo 2010-06-22 21:49:18 UTC
According to upstream[*] this has been fixed in 0.24.8, and we do not have any version older than that in portage.

Comment 3 Tobias Heinlein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-08-14 14:39:55 UTC
YES too, request filed.
