Description Andriy Utkin gentoo-dev 2019-06-25 22:18:34 UTC

hostapd 2.8 release has been issued soon after CVE-2019-11555 fix has been implemented.

Upstream security advisory:

Unfortunately I haven't followed hostapd release announcements so it's been sitting unpackaged for two months. Just recently a verbump request was raised. One day ago I have added the new version to the tree.

This timeline actually gives me some hope that the 2.8 release is pretty good for stabilization, as there were no corrective minor releases since then.
