Description Jos Backus 2002-04-20 01:40:01 UTC
    Update devel/global to version 4.4. This fixes a security vulnerability,
    and users are urged to upgrade asap:

       A security hole was found in the CGI program generated by htags(1).
       This security hole exists in the following version: 3.5, 3.51, 3.52,
       3.53, 3.54, 3.55, 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.1, 4.1.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.3.1.  If you use
       above version and use the -f option of htags(1), please stop publishing
       hypertext generated by htags(1) and replace your GLOBAL with the fixed
       version 4.4. 

    Also update maintainer's e-mail address.
