I guess it's fixed in 2.3.2-4.
- debian/patches/arm-output-format.dpatch: Very bad hack to avoid problem with libc.so on ARM until a proper fix is forthcoming.
19:20:15 # Life After hacking I have a patch against jack, a patch to enable checks other than "CPU MHz" in /proc/cpuinfo. All arches have different text
07:59:06 # Life G5 benchmark on slashdot tells me that new G5 isn't that fast ? SMP ability is a bit of a tricky question, which doesn't really matter for those people who make PC clusters with slower interconnect... But it would really be an enjoyable beast to play with. It was on sale 10 days ago, apparently.
06:12:58 # dinstall/dupload Maintenance of pbuilder. I've updated documentations. I value documentation updates more than code updates. Having up-to-date documentation of free software is valuable.

08:56:03 # Life Noted down the current issues with dsh-vulnerability. In summary, there is no vulnerability. I only have this stupid "lol..." comment on the code to search what kind of vulnerability they are talking about; but I deeply suspect that this is bogus. I have "make check" routine which checks for the vulnerability now. I'll go and try other architectures later.
there are followups to the list. And I guess it was a false alarm.

An advisory that cannot precisely address the upstream source. asprintf replacement that is used when asprintf is not provided by the Operating System has a security hole. So, the operating systems that do not have an asprintf are vulnerable with dsh.
