Description Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2015-12-21 15:15:17 UTC
This upstream bug was fixed in 3.13.1:

The title is "Remotely exploitable bug", but the information is a bit unclear. It looks like this is a stack overflow. Anyway, probably means 3.13.1 should receive fast stabilization and a GLSA.

This version also fixes two oob errors I reported, I don't think they're security risks, but for completeness here they are (some consider every oob issue to be worthy of treating as a potential security issue):

Stable for HPPA.
Comment 4 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2015-12-29 06:49:29 UTC
I'm having a bit of trouble testing on PPC64 since dev-libs/libgdata -> net-libs/gnome-online-accounts -> [PDEPEND]: gnome-base/gnome-control-center pulls in half the GNOME distribution. I could mask USE=gnome easily, though.

we will continue in bug 570692
