    2015-07-13 - Raphaël Hertzog <> tcpick (0.2.1-6.1) unstable; urgency=high * Non-maintainer upload (but really a QA upload as maintainer is likely MIA). * Change source format to 3.0 (quilt) so that we can properly handle upstream patches. * Split diff.gz into all the historic patches that have been applied. * Switch debhelper compat level to 9 and uses short rules file. * Use dh-autoreconf instead of manual copying of config.{sub,guess}. * Update Standards-Version to 3.9.6. * Fix build failure with GCC 5 (as well as multiple other problems reported via GCC warnings). Closes: #778141

    2009-06-08 - William Vera <> tcpick (0.2.1-6) unstable; urgency=low * New maintainer (Closes:#430030).

    2007-07-20 - Michael Ablassmeier <> tcpick (0.2.1-4) unstable; urgency=low * QA upload. * Set maintainer to QA Group; Orphaned: #430030 * Silence lintian about clean target in debian/rules * Update FSF Address in debian/copyright * Conforms with latest Standards Version 3.7.2

    2006-04-14 - Cédric Delfosse <> tcpick (0.2.1-3) unstable; urgency=high * src/write.c: temporary patch to fix CVE-2006-0048 (Closes: Bug#360571) As upstream is not responsive, I have written this one-line patch. With the option -yP, tcpick shows data contained in the captured packets. For some packets, tcpick computes a negative buffer length, which is used in a while (buffer length) {} loop to display the packet content. When the buffer length is negative, the loop never ends, and tcpick segfaults after a while. This patch tests if the computed buffer length is negative before using it, and set it to 0 in this case.
