Description Frank Krömmelbein 2014-03-22 19:47:37 UTC
Fixed potential security issue reported by Heiner Markert. Do not allow the cruid option to be entered via the "Additional options" line edit. Also, implement a check in Smb4KMountJob::createMountAction() that removes the cruid option from the custom options returned by Smb4KSettings::customCIFSOptions().

Full Release Notes:

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Frank Krömmelbein 2014-03-22 19:51:12 UTC
The new version works for me.

Upstream changed source archiv to tar.xz
So the following small patch is neccesary:
