games-strategy/freeciv-2.2.1 is in portage and stable for x85 and amd64. Just test & stable it for other arches.
Comment 2 Steffen Schaumburg 2010-10-31 05:40:22 UTC
The oldest 2.2 in the tree is now 2.2.1, and there's no 2.3 in the tree, so I think this can be closed.
Comment 3 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2011-10-11 09:04:36 UTC
@security, fixed versions are in tree.

From secunia I see:

The security issue exists due to the Lua run time environment allowing access to the operating system specific modules and functions. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary shell commands via a specially crafted saved game or scenario file.

We should move it to B2? If not please proceed with glsa vote.

Comment 4 Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-10-11 22:27:14 UTC
Yes, I believe this should be B2. GLSA request filed.
Comment 5 DrSlony 2013-08-15 12:56:17 UTC
Is this still valid?
