Description Oliver Fromme 2005-03-23 10:10:02 UTC
    This patch updates the graphics/libexif port from 0.6.10
    to 0.6.12.  The version currently in the ports contains
    remotely exploitable buffer overflows, as reported by
    portaudit (see URL below).  The problems are supposed to
    be fixed in version 0.6.12.

    For this PR, I chose to select severity "serious" and
    priority "medium" (instead of "low") because libexif is
    a default dependency of GIMP, gphoto and several other
    ports, so a significant number of users might be affected.

    By the way, I tried to contact the maintainer of the port
    but did not get a reply so far.

Fix: Remove the "files" directory (it contains a patch for
    configure which is obsolete) and apply the following
    patch.  It modifies Makefile, distinfo and pkg-plist.
    The pkg-descr file is not changed.

    The complete new port can also be found here:

Grab. Also, maintainer is on the way.

The maintainer updated my patch and submitted PR ports/79281,
which supersedes this PR.  Therefore, please close this PR.
