Fixed in cauldron.
Still working on mga6. The patch doesn't fully apply.


Comment 4 Johnny A. Solbu 2019-01-12 02:45:04 CET
I have uploaded a new mga6 package to 6/core/updates_testing

Source RPM: aria2-1.25.0-1.1.mga6.src.rpm

(I have no idea how you're supposed test this update)

It Fixes CVE-2019-3500

Possible advisory:
It was observed that URL's which gets downloaded via "--log=" attribute
stores sensitive information.
This update fixes that.
