Comment 1 Scott Seago 2008-01-15 08:47:12 EST
As this bug was introduced in 1.0.4 (1.0.3 and earlier are not susceptible), the
current fedora package (which is at 1.0.1) is not vulnerable. I will upgrade the
packages to 1.0.5 or 1.1.3 when I get the chance, though,
Comment 2 Tomas Hoger 2008-01-15 09:46:12 EST
Thanks Scott for clarification.  As versions shipped in Fedora are not affected
by this issue, we will not be tracking this as security issue and I'm closing
this bug.

If you decide to update to newer version in Fedora, please submit such update as
enhancement, unless some other (future) security issue will be addressed there.
