Description Jeff Patterson 2004-03-16 09:16:00 UTC
Versions of uudeview below 0.5.20 are vulnerable to buffer overflows.

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:

No ebuild currently exists for uudeview-0.5.20.   Upgrading to 0.5.20 solves
this problem.

Version bump for uudeview.  I removed the patch that was in uudeview 0.5.18
because it doesn't seem to be applicable anymore.
Comment 2 Joshua J. Berry (CondorDes) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-24 20:44:11 UTC
Can someone please test the new ebuild and let me know if anything needs fixing?  (And if it's OK, could a dev please commit it?)

Thanks in advance.

so, WHO wants this from the CC list?
Comment 4 Seemant Kulleen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-26 11:59:20 UTC
committed to portage directly as "x86 ~sparc" and removed the older versions
Comment 5 Jason Wever (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-26 14:42:57 UTC
Stable on sparc.
