Description Paweł Hajdan, Jr. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-07-31 16:28:19 UTC
Is it OK to stabilize =app-office/calligra-l10n-2.4.3 ?

If so, please CC all arches which have stable keywords

for older versions of this package and add STABLEREQ keyword

to the bug.

> amd64 stable
ehm... it doesn't seem so!? Readded amd64 to this bug
$ cat  calligra-2.4.3-r1.ebuild | grep KEYWO
[[ ${PV} == *9999 ]] || KEYWORDS="~amd64 x86"

I've hit bug #430570, but these are no regressions...
so x86 is done now. :-)

CVE-2012-3456 (
  Heap-based buffer overflow in the read function in
  filters/words/msword-odf/wv2/src/styles.cpp in the Microsoft import filter
  in Calligra 2.4.3 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
  service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a
  crafted ODF style in an ODF document.  NOTE: this is the same vulnerability
  as CVE-2012-3455, but it was SPLIT by the CNA even though Calligra and
  KOffice share the same codebase.
