Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2015-10-16 10:45:11 UTC
From ${URL} :

Upstream commit:


If compiled with effective source fortification, the vulnerability is
just a crash and not exploitable for anything else, as a result of the
compiler-emitted length check for memcpy inside the PEEK_BYTES macro.

@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.

There is also another fix, an improper assert leading to a daemon
