autofs (5.0.8-2) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Salvatore Bonaccorso <> ]
* Add patches for CVE-2014-8169 (Closes: #779591).
When a program map uses an interpreted languages like python it is
possible to load and execute arbitray code from a user home directory.
This is because the standard environment variables are used to locate
and load modules when using these languages. To avoid that, a prefix to
these environment names is added so that they aren't used for this
purpose. The prefix used is "AUTOFS_" and is not configurable.
Additionally a configuration option to force the use of program map
standard environment variables is added (FORCE_STANDARD_PROGRAM_MAP_ENV).
[ Dmitry Smirnov <> ]
* Refreshed other patches as needed.
