    2013-04-25 - Thomas Goirand <> automysqlbackup (2.6+debian.3-1) unstable; urgency=high * Fixes: Code injection via unsafe database names inside eval calls, thanks to Axel Beckert for reporting (Closes: #706099).

    2012-01-23 - Thomas Goirand <> automysqlbackup (2.6+debian-1) unstable; urgency=low * New upstream version. With this new Debian release, I'm deciding to completely fork upstream work, as it's being impossible to work with upstream (no responsiveness), that upstream branch diverged, and is still containing the very bad security issue to save DBs dumps as world readable after my repeated warnings. * debian/copyright now using DEP5 format. * Added Vcs fields and a debian/gbp.conf. * Switching to source format 1.0 (quilt). * Removed now useless Dm-Upload-Allowed:, and now using my email as maintainer. * Now depends on mysql-client-5.1 | mysql-client (and not 5.0 anymore). * Standards-Version: is now 3.9.2. * Remove "a" article in short description. * Added build-arch: and build-indep: targets in debian/rules. * Fixes Script fails with error when DBNAMES="all", thanks to Chris Moules <> (Closes: #654388).

    2009-08-06 - Thomas Goirand <> automysqlbackup (2.5-5) unstable; urgency=low * Added Recommends: mutt (Closes: #532402). * Now uses a SHOW DATABASES statement to list all DBs to backup in the /etc/defaults/automysqlbackup, which is a lot more reliable than the previous folder listing (Closes: #539370). * Added some quotes in the script to avoid some parsing errors, which was reported by a user of the package (Closes: #534852). * Added more comments in the /etc/defaults/automysqlbackup. * Added a watch file. * Bumped Standards-Version to 3.8.2.
