procps 1:3.2.8-11ubuntu6.3 source package in Ubuntu


procps (1:3.2.8-11ubuntu6.3) precise; urgency=low

  * Avoid SEGV if file2str should read zero bytes. This is a backport of
    526bc5df from upstream.  When utility buffers were introduced for file2str
    read requests, a subtle change was inadvertently introduced such that a
    read of zero no longer returns a -1 value. This returns to the behavior to
    returning -1 on zero byte reads. (LP: #1242746)
