Luke, thanks for report this, but please don't cc arches when there is not the time.
Comment 2 Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-05-15 06:34:13 UTC
I see 0.6.2 is in the tree now, thanks. Are we ok to stabilize that?

It's secure against this vulnerability, but 0.6.x has only been out for a couple of weeks and not very well-tested yet. I would recommend stabilizing 0.5.5 for now.

Thanks, Luke, sorry I missed that in c0.

Arches, please test and mark stable:
=net-p2p/bitcoind-0.5.5
=net-p2p/bitcoin-qt-0.5.5
Target keywords : "amd64 x86"

Original arm stabilization request was bug 405211, and had continued into the last CVE (bug 407793).

I added the ebuilds yesterday after I saw this bug report.

As the arch teams do their work, I will drop keywords and finally remove the last remaining vulnerable version: {bitcoind,bitcoin-qt}-0.5.3
