Description Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev Security 2017-10-28 17:50:00 UTC
This package uses eclasses which were vulnerable to root privilege escalation via "chown", see bug 630822 for details. The eclasses were fixed, however a rev bump is required to ensure that the vulnerability is completely removed.
