Description Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2010-03-06 16:00:49 UTC
CVE-2010-0792 (
  fcrontab in fcron before 3.0.5 allows local users to read arbitrary
  files via a symlink attack on an unspecified file.
Comment 1 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-03-10 01:43:10 UTC
Security, 3.0.5 is in tree now.

Only bad note on that is that it depends on a newly-added pambase, but since I only changed the system-services stack it should be fine to go stable as it is even right now.

Comment 2 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-03-11 13:31:36 UTC
3.0.5-r1 is the stable candidate if security wants a new stable.
Comment 3 Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2010-03-18 00:07:33 UTC
Arches, please test and mark stable:
Target keywords : "amd64 hppa ppc sparc x86"

YES too, request filed.
Comment 13 Gokdeniz Karadag 2011-02-18 13:20:35 UTC
3.0.5-r2 is the oldest available version in the tree. Is there still a need for a GLSA ?
