Release Notes: In this version, the XDR vulnerability recently discovered in SunRPC that was also present in Rx has been fixed. The volserver and the AFS database servers are known to have this vulnerability. A bug which could cause a problem getting AFS PAGs introduced in 1.2.5 was fixed. The Linux client contains SMP fixes. Solaris 9 support has been fixed, and Solaris x86 support has been added. The PAM module with Kerberos support is now compiled correctly. There is also one new feature, fakestat, which eases problems inadvertently caused by traversing a directory of mount points to foreign cells.
Release Notes: Client versions include fixes to guard against possibility of denial of service attacks including changes to IRIX and AIX clients to preclude recently discovered problems which can panic these clients, existing in all previous OpenAFS versions.
