Re: Bug#22321: Minicom buffer overflow patch --oops

According to Stephen Carpenter:
Sorry about this....I screwed up....
I made a slight typo....well not so slight...
yes its my own fault for not being more careful...
this is the revised pacth that should actually work at the end of this
message

Actually, this patch is incomplete. There are at least 10 other places in
minicom that have the exact same problem (buffer overflow). A patch has
already been sent to the upstream maintainer. There should be a minicom-1.82
soon.

BTW 80% of all software has the same problem - it really isn't a problem...
unless it's a setuid program.

Mike.
