yubiserver (0.6-3.1) unstable; urgency=low * Non-maintainer upload. * B-d on libgcrypt20-dev instead of (dummy transition package) libgcrypt11-dev. Closes: #864141 -- Andreas Metzler
Sat, 27 Oct 2018 11:43:28 +0200 yubiserver (0.6-3) unstable; urgency=high * Upgrade automake. * Fix FTBFS (Closes: Bug#794706). -- Chrysostomos Nanakos Sat, 15 Aug 2015 12:36:01 +0300 yubiserver (0.6-2) unstable; urgency=high * Fix upgrade failure from 'stretch'. Thanks to Andreas Beckmann for the bug report (Closes: Bug#790646). -- Chrysostomos Nanakos Wed, 01 Jul 2015 11:06:14 +0300 yubiserver (0.6-1) unstable; urgency=high * Fix CVE vulnerabilities: CVE-2015-0842 yubiserver: SQL injection issues (potential auth bypass) CVE-2015-0843 yubiserver: Buffer overflows due to misuse of sprintf * Code cleanup and refactoring. -- Chrysostomos Nanakos Mon, 29 Jun 2015 11:42:55 +0300 yubiserver (0.5-3) unstable; urgency=medium * Handle -l switch correctly. Thanks to Clemens Lang for the bug report (Closes: Bug#781552). * Remove unowned directory after purge.

After renaming yubiserver.sqlite db file to yubiserver.sqlite.init and removing the installation of the db file to /var/lib/yubiserver directory until the first initialization, chmod and chown failed due to the missing db file. -- Nanakos Chrysostomos Fri, 24 Oct 2014 09:58:31 +0300 yubiserver (0.5-1) unstable; urgency=medium * Refactor code and various cleanups. * Rename yubiserver.sqlite db file to yubiserver.sqlite.init and make a copy under /etc/yubiserver directory. For the first time yubiserver starts, check if yubiserver.sqlite db file exists under the predefined directory, if not then copy it. That way we exclude the database file when generating md5sums file for the package. (Closes: Bug#760715) * Update debian/watch file to use signed upstream tarballs. -- Nanakos Chrysostomos Fri, 03 Oct 2014 14:11:37 +0300 yubiserver (0.4-4) unstable; urgency=low * Fix buffer overruns.

Thanks to Lucas Nussbaum for pointing this out. (Closes: Bug#713230) * Updated debian/yubiserver.postinst - Moved mkdir's to yubiserver.dirs. - Replaced whole directory chown's to unique entries concerning each directory and file used by yubiserver. * Updated debian/yubiserver.postrm - Split purge operation to handle the removal of yubiserver user and clean /var/log/yubiserver and /var/run/yubiserver dir's. - Removal of package only affects the deletion of /var/rub/yubiserver directory. * Updated debian/init - Init script creates /var/run/yubiserver directory if it doesn't exist according to Debian Policy 9.1.4 and 9.3.2. * Fixed Makefile.am to compile cleanly after gcc's more restrictive rules about explicity library ordering.

With changes above a new system user/group 'yubiserver' is created and the appropriate permissions to the database and the yubiserver-admin binary are set. The database file is group-writable by this group, allowing the local administrator to grant yubiserver-admin access to regular users. Thanks to Apollon Oikonomopoulos for pointing this out.
