Description Lubomir Kundrak 2007-07-27 12:52:38 UTC
Description of problem:

o Major bugfixes (security):
    - Fix a possible buffer overrun when using BSD natd support. Bug
      found by croup.
    - When sending destroy cells from a circuit's origin, don't include
      the reason for tearing down the circuit. The spec says we didn't,
      and now we actually don't. Reported by lodger.
    - Keep streamids from different exits on a circuit separate. This
      bug may have allowed other routers on a given circuit to inject
      cells into streams. Reported by lodger; fixes bug 446.
    - If there's a never-before-connected-to guard node in our list,
      never choose any guards past it. This way we don't expand our
      guard list unless we need to.
