Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-05-14 07:55:18 UTC
From ${URL} :

A number of issues were found in the cryptography practices of EncFS. These are detailed in the following audit:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
Comment 1 Anthony Basile gentoo-dev 2014-05-14 12:32:50 UTC
Upstream encfs has not released since November 18, 2010.  Version 1.7.4 has been in the tree a while but is susceptible to the problems in the audit.
Comment 2 Felix Janda 2014-11-01 07:32:14 UTC
There seems to be new development and a version 1.7.5 at .
Comment 3 Anthony Basile gentoo-dev 2014-11-01 18:28:42 UTC
The new version is in the tree.  Thanks Feix.  We should probably stabilize this as it is a security fix:

@amd64 and x86, please stabilize =sys-fs/encfs-1.7.5
Comment 4 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-11-08 18:08:44 UTC
amd64 stable
Comment 5 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-11-08 18:10:09 UTC
x86 stable.

Maintainer(s), please cleanup.
Security, please add it to the existing request, or file a new one.
