  • a/aaa_elflibs-14.2-i586-14.txz
  • xap/gnuplot-5.0.3-i586-2.txz
    Added libcaca support. Thanks to Andrew Clemons.
  • d/mercurial-3.8.2-i586-1.txz
  • l/gdbm-1.12-i586-1.txz
  • l/libmtp-1.1.11-i586-1.txz
  • n/libndp-1.6-i586-1.txz
    This update fixes a security issue. It was found that libndp did
    not properly validate and check the origin of Neighbor Discovery
    Protocol (NDP) messages. An attacker on a non-local network could
    use this flaw to advertise a node as a router, allowing them to
    perform man-in-the-middle attacks on a connecting client, or
    disrupt the network connectivity of that client.
    Thanks to Julien Bernard (Viagénie) for reporting this issue.
