Proposed patch:
Comment 1 Chris Reffett (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2013-07-08 23:20:21 UTC
Fixed since 9.0.3/9.1. Do we want to stable 9.0.3, or just cleanup?
Comment 2 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2013-07-08 23:42:07 UTC
mesa-9.0.3 is affected by CVE-2013-1993, so there is little point in stabilizing that.
If/when upstream releases 9.0.4 with that fixed we will consider for stabilization.
Comment 3 Chris Reffett (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2013-09-11 15:07:13 UTC
Well, we still have vulnerable stuff in tree. I don't suppose we can remove 9.0.*?
Comment 4 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2013-09-15 15:59:20 UTC
CVE-2013-1993 is fixed in upstream's 9.0 branch, but no release was made from that branch since then. As some users still depend on old mesa, p.masking affected versions is probably better.
Comment 5 Yury German Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2013-12-30 07:12:47 UTC
Vulnerable versions no longer in tree

No stabilization as per comments, 9.1.6 is stable.

Added to existing GLSA draft.

Maintainer(s), Thank you for your work!
Comment 6 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2014-03-26 12:14:05 UTC
Vulnerable versions have been p.masked.
