AOSA-2016-0040: UPDATE FLIGHTGEAR

DECEMBER 31, 2016

Most good programmers do programming not because they expect to get paid or get adulation by the public, but because it is fun to program. – Linus Torvalds

Please update your flightgear package to version 2016.4.3-1.

A fix was recently introduced to the source code for the FlightGear Flight Simulator to address the following security vulnerability:

“The FlightGear project fixed a security issue, allowing arbitrary file overwrites for files the user running FlightGear has write access to and could be taken advantage to for other impact as arbitrary code execution.”
