Description

LSAC(v2)
The libtalloc packages provide a library that implements a hierarchical memory allocator with destructors. The libtalloc packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2.0.7, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version. (BZ#855862) This update also fixes the following bug: * The talloc() hierarchical allocator did not ensure that the child pointers of a pointer did not become invalid during memory freeing operation. Consequently, processes that use the talloc library, such as the spoolss process of samba, could have terminated with a segmentation fault. The underlying source code has been modified and talloc() no longer causes Samba to fail in this situation. (BZ#837853, BZ#855387) All libtalloc users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
