openslp-dfsg (1.2.1-11) unstable; urgency=high
* QA upload from the Security Team
* Fix double free as per CVE-2015-5177
2014-07-25 - Guillem Jover <>
openslp-dfsg (1.2.1-10) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.5 (no changes needed).
* Bump debhelper compatibility level to 9.
* Switch to machine-parseable copyright format.
* Reorder binary package stanzas in debian/control.
* Split common and specific package descriptions into distinct paragraphs
so that translations are easier.
* Reword package summaries.
* Mark slpd and slptool as Multi-Arch:foreign, libslp1 and libslp-dev as
Multi-Arch:same. Closes: #755935
* Clean up debian/rules:
- Explicitly set DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE.
- Remove unused DEB_BUILD_GNU_SYSTEM and DEB_BUILD_GNU_CPU assignments.
- Remove commented out debhelper commands.
- Do not pass any argument to update-rc.d via dh_installinit.
- Pass --host and --build to configure only when cross-compiling.
- Pass --disable-silent-rules to configure, preemptively.
- Enable hardening build flags.
* Clean up init script:
- Update LSB header descriptions.
- Add LSB status action support.
- Rename debian/init.d to debian/slpd.init.
- Add new PIDFILE variable.
* Remove unnecessary debian/dirs, dh_installinit takes care of creating the
etc/init.d directory.
* Remove debian/preinst, as it was wrongly using start-stop-daemon directly,
and invoke-rc.d is already being injected by debhelper to stop the daemon
on upgrade.
* Remove «set -x» from slpd postinst.
* Namespace stray debhelper files with «slpd.» in debian/ filenames.
* Remove trailing spaces from debian/ files.
* Change the libcrypto configure-time checks conditional on whether it is
going to be used at build time, so that we can remove the libssl-dev
* Add a debian/watch file.
* Add a basic symbols file for libslp1.
* Fix a typo in slptool's program output message.
* Fix a typo in an automake coditional in the code, that was not properly
* Fix handling of string-list in common/slp_common.c by not increasing
the item pointer past the string-list pointer, and letting '\\' only
escape the item separator ','. Although not reproduced it should in
theory fix CVE-2012-4428. Closes: #687597
