Description Murray McAllister 2014-06-13 05:11:01 UTC
It was reported that no authentication checks were performed when obtaining source packages via "apt-get source". This could possibly lead to silent interactions with compromised source packages.

Patches:

There is a lot of discussion about this issue in the original report: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=749795
