The udisks daemon serves as an interface to system block devices,
implemented via D-Bus. It handles operations such as querying, mounting,
unmounting, formatting, or detaching storage devices such as hard disks
or USB thumb drives.
This package also provides the udisks utility, which can be used to
trigger these operations from the command line (if permitted by
PolicyKit). External tools such as hdparm are used if available to
implement extra operations, such as configuring disk spindown times.
Creating or modifying file systems such as XFS, RAID, or LUKS encryption
requires that the corresponding mkfs.* and admin tools are installed, such as
dosfstools and mtools for VFAT, xfsprogs for XFS, or cryptsetup for LUKS.

udisks (1.0.4-7wheezy1) stable-security; urgency=medium
* SECURITY UPDATE: Add 00git_mount_path_overflow.patch to fix buffer
overflow in mount path parsing. A malicious, local user could use this
flaw to create a specially-crafted mount point directory structure that
could lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the udisks
daemon (root). [CVE-2014-0004]
2012-07-20 - Michael Biebl <biebl@debian.org>
udisks (1.0.4-7) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/patches/13-dosfslabel.patch: The original reasons why mlabel was
preferred over dosfslabel are no longer true. So switch back to dosfslabel
which is part of dosfstools which we already require for mkfs.vfat and
drop the Recommends on mtools. Fix the maximum length for FAT labels while
at it. (Closes: #680683)
2012-06-14 - Martin Pitt <mpitt@debian.org>
udisks (1.0.4-6) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/tests/control: Add mtools dependency for VFAT test. (LP: #976269)
* debian/tests/control: Add policykit-1 dependency. (LP: #976266)
* Add 00git_rts_bpp_sdcard.patch: Mark rts_bpp devices as SD card readers.
Patch also committed upstream. (LP: #971876)
* debian/local/apport-hook.py: Fix syntax to also work with Python 3.
* debian/control: Change the "cryptsetup" suggests to a "cryptsetup-bin"
recommends, so that LUKS functionality works by default.
2012-04-02 - Martin Pitt <mpitt@debian.org>
udisks (1.0.4-5) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/control: Drop ntfsprogs recommendation, it's now a transitional
package. ntfs-3g provides the programs now.
* Add debian/patches/00git_media_card_device_tags.patch: Mark MemStick and
MMC devices as such, so that they get automounted. Backported from
udisks2. (LP: #942777)
* Add 12-bogus-uevent-paths.patch: Ignore add/change events for a
nonexisting native path. (LP: #899757)
* debian/copyright: Update to copyright 1.0 format.
* debian/control: Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.3.
2012-02-11 - Michael Biebl <biebl@debian.org>
udisks (1.0.4-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Install systemd service file for udisks-daemon.
2012-01-04 - Martin Pitt <mpitt@debian.org>
udisks (1.0.4-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Add debian/patches/00git_fix_smart_test.patch: Fix test suite crash if
first hard disk is not SMART capable. Also pushed to upstream git head.
* Add debian/tests/control and debian/tests/upstream-system:
DEP-8/autopkgtest control file for running the upstream tests.

udisks (1.0.4-2) unstable; urgency=low
[ Martin Pitt ]
* debian/control: Mark udisks Multi-Arch: foreign. Thanks Steve Langasek.
(Closes: #646078)
[ Michael Biebl ]
* debian/patches/06-test-for-mdadm.patch: Update 80-udisks.rules to test for
mdadm before using it. (Closes: #640322)
* debian/patches/07-fix-typos-udisks-man-page.patch: Fix a few typos in the
udisks man page spotted by A. Costa. (Closes: #631420)

Sérgio Cipolla. (Closes: #628502)
2011-08-30 - Michael Biebl <biebl@debian.org>
udisks (1.0.4-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* Drop debian/patches/01-mkfs-tempdir.patch: udisks-daemon now creates
/var/run/udisks on demand, so this patch is obsolete.
