  • a/e2fsprogs-1.41.7-i486-1.txz
  • ap/mc-20090714_git-i486-1.txz
  • l/gnome-icon-theme-2.26.0-i486-1.txz
  • l/libgsf-1.14.15-i486-1.txz
  • n/dhcp-3.1.2p1-i486-1.txz
    A stack overflow vulnerability was fixed in dhclient that could allow
    remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands as root on the system,
    or simply terminate the client, by providing an over-long subnet-mask
    option.
    For more information, see:

    (* Security fix *)
  • extra/wicd/wicd-1.6.2-i486-1.txz
    pasture/libsafe-2.0-16/libsafe-2.0.16-i386-1.txz: Moved from /extra.
    This causes problems with firefox-3.5, and too many people are going to
    be confused by that if libsafe remains in /extra. Really, there's very
    little reason to be running libsafe on a machine that isn't a server
    anyway. In any case, libsafe has always caused a few programs to fail
    for as long as I can remember. I'm not sure how much good it still does
    either, considering it's been unmaintained upstream since 2001.
    Feel free to continue using it if you like, but realize that it has the
    potential to break things, especially on desktop machines.
