-===== ChangeLog ===== +
-<code> +
-Mon Dec 16 20:51:01 UTC 2013 +
-d/llvm-3.3-i486-3.txz:  Rebuilt. +
-  The LLVM package included binaries with an rpath pointing to the build +
-  location in /tmp.   This allows an attacker with write access to /tmp to +
-  add modified libraries (and execute arbitrary code) as any user running +
-  the LLVM binaries.  This updated package rebuilds LLVM to exclude the +
-  build directories from the rpath information. +
-  Thanks to Christopher Oliver for the bug report. +
-  (* Security fix *) +
-d/ruby-1.9.3_p484-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded. +
-  This update fixes a heap overflow in floating point parsing.  A specially +
-  crafted string could cause a heap overflow leading to a denial of service +
-  attack via segmentation faults and possibly arbitrary code execution. +
-  For more information, see: +
-    https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/news/2013/11/22/heap-overflow-in-floating-point-parsing-cve-2013-4164/ +
-    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-4164 +
-  (* Security fix *) +
-l/cairo-1.12.16-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded. +
-  Removed --enable-xcb-shm (may cause instability with GTK+3). +
-  Removed --enable-xlib-xcb (causes GIMP slowdown). +
-  Added --enable-ft and --enable-gl. +
-  If there are no problems reported with this update, perhaps it should be +
-  issued as a 14.1 bugfix? +
-l/libiodbc-3.52.8-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded. +
-  This update fixes an rpath pointing to a location in /tmp that was found in +
-  two test programs (iodbctest and iodbctestw).  This could have allowed a +
-  local attacker with write access to /tmp to add modified libraries (and +
-  execute arbitrary code) as any user running the test programs. +
-  Thanks to Christopher Oliver for the bug report. +
-  (* Security fix *) +
-l/libjpeg-v8a-i486-2.txz:  Rebuilt. +
-  Fix use of uninitialized memory when decoding images with missing SOS data +
-  for the luminance component (Y) in presence of valid chroma data (Cr, Cb). +
-  This could allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from +
-  uninitialized memory locations via a crafted JPEG image. +
-  For more information, see: +

-l/seamonkey-solibs-2.23-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded. +
-xap/mozilla-firefox-26.0-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded. +
-  This release contains security fixes and improvements. +

-  This update contains security fixes and improvements. +
