Description Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2014-01-06 12:28:37 UTC
From announcement:
"Please note::: This release fixes a severe vulnerability in X2Go Server
that allowed an attacker with user permissions to gain root access to
the X2Go Server machine. Everyone, please upgrade your X2Go Server

I just added x2goserver- to tree, it works fine with stable x2goclient and libssh (and openssh[-hpn] on the server), so it can be stabled to fix this vulnerability
Comment 1 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-01-06 12:46:54 UTC
Thanks for the report
Comment 2 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2014-01-06 18:04:15 UTC fixed the vulnerability but introduced a small bug when session ID strings contained dot characters.

So arches please test and mark stable =net-misc/x2goserver- instead, thanks!
Comment 3 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2014-01-09 16:24:45 UTC
Another hotfix release (this time for remote printing) came, so I removed the previous stable candidates. Sorry for the noise

Arches, new stable target is =net-misc/x2goserver-
