Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-3070
2009-03-26 14:35:08
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : pptp
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 1.7.2
Release     : 5.fc10
URL         : http://pptpclient.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) Client
Description :
Client for the proprietary Microsoft Point-to-Point Tunneling
Protocol, PPTP. Allows connection to a PPTP based VPN as used
by employers and some cable and ADSL service providers.

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

This update corrects the behaviour of pptpsetup when its --delete option is
used, retaining the permissions of /etc/ppp/chap-secrets rather than creating a
new file that is likely to be world-readable.    If you have previously used the
--delete option of pptpsetup, you should reset the permissions of /etc/ppp/chap-
secrets to their default value of 0600 unless you have good reasons to use
another value:    # chmod 600 /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Wed Mar 25 2009 Paul Howarth <paul@city-fan.org> 1.7.2-5
- Retain permissions on /etc/ppp/chap-secrets when using pptpsetup (#492090)
- Use upstream versions of patches
- Re-enable parallel build; Makefile dependencies now fixed
- Use perl rather than sed to edit Makefile, for spec compatibility with
  ancient distro releases
* Thu Feb 26 2009 Fedora Release Engineering <rel-eng@lists.fedoraproject.org> - 1.7.2-4
- Rebuilt for https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_11_Mass_Rebuild
