This package has no maintainer, so assigning this globally.

Comment 3 David Walser 2019-10-31 13:04:36 CET

Updated libapreq2 packages fix security vulnerability:

Max Kellermann reported a NULL pointer dereference flaw in libapreq2, allowing
a remote attacker to cause a denial of service against an application using the
library (application crash) if an invalid nested "multipart" body is processed


Updated packages in core/updates_testing:

from libapreq-2.130.0-28.1.mga7.src.rpm

MGA7-64 Plasma on Lenovo B50
No installation issues.
Tried to find anything that uses these packages, the only thing I found was mason. Found a  tutorial for that, but this seems real developer stuff. Not in my league.
I will agree on OK'ing on a clean install.

@Hermam, comment 4
Had a look at this and have to agree, it would take a month of Sundays to get to grips with mason or autodia.  A clean install was all that could be achieved here.  Adding the OK for you.
