Description Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2015-10-24 08:28:19 UTC
The release of exfat-utils 1.2.1 fixes two potential security bugs I discovered. One of them is a bit more severe (a write heap overflow), therefore I think this deserves security handling.

The update is already in the tree, so stabilization would be next.
