Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-7269
2008-09-05 10:29:29
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : xastir
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 1.9.2
Release     : 8.fc8
URL         : http://www.xastir.org
Summary     : Amateur Station Tracking and Reporting system for amateur radio
Description :
Xastir is a graphical application that interfaces HAM radio
and internet access to realtime mapping software.

Install XASTIR if you are interested in APRS(tm) and HAM radio
software.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Multiple insecure temporary file usage flaws were identified in the get-
maptools.sh and get_shapelib.sh scripts shipped in xastir packages.    As those
scripts are not needed with Fedora-distributed xastir packages (they automate
installation of libraries used by xastir, which are provided in the Fedora
archive in the pre-packaged RPM format), they were removed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Thu Aug 28 2008 Lucian Langa <cooly@gnome.eu.org> - 1.9.2-8
- drop uneeded and potential risky files (bug #460429)
* Thu Aug 28 2008 Lucian Langa <cooly@gnome.eu.org> - 1.9.2-7
- fix insecure auxiliary /tmp file usage bug #460429
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
