Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2015-12-28 14:38:52 UTC
From ${URL} :

Steve Kemp discovered that Stalin, an optimizing compiler for Scheme,
insecurely uses temporary files which have a fixed name. This was
reported in Debian as #808730[1].

Could you please assign a CVE for this issue?


@maintainer(s): since the package or the affected version has never been marked as stable, we don't need to stabilize it. After the bump, please remove the affected versions from the tree.

Update Check - 2016-06-05 - No updates from upstream
Comment 2 Christopher Díaz Riveros (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2017-07-20 12:18:04 UTC

Still any news from upstream.

+ the maintainer of the package is no longer active.

I don't think this is really maintainer upstream -- looks more like a proof-of-concept. I can't find an exact release date for the current version but the homepage hasn't been touched since 2013, so it's no newer than that.

Pacho please remove the Masked package, when possible.
