  This update fixes a local privilege escalation vulnerability via
  symlink attack.
  For more information, see:
    http://subversion.apache.org/security/CVE-2013-4277-advisory.txt
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-4277
  (* Security fix *)
k/kernel-source-3.10.11_smp-noarch-1.txz:  Upgraded.
l/glibc-2.17-i486-6.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched to remove pt_chown.  Thanks to mancha.
  Note that while this patches CVE-2013-2207 (a local privilege escalation
  vulnerability), the vulnerability depends upon insecure and non-default
  settings ("user_allow_other" in /etc/fuse.conf) and the patch is not
  trivial to port to older versions of glibc.  For older versions, the
  best approach is to not set that option in fuse.conf, as it likely opens
  up other holes as well.  Another approach to mitigate this is to make
  pt_chown a symlink to /bin/true, as the kernel has handled chowning
  pseudo terminals for a long time and pt_chown isn't needed at all.
l/glibc-i18n-2.17-i486-6.txz:  Rebuilt.
l/glibc-profile-2.17-i486-6.txz:  Rebuilt.

n/bluez-4.99-i486-3.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Check executable status of rc.bluetooth before allowing a hotplugged
  device to load modules and start bluetoothd.
