The bugs fixed by the following commit basically allow remote code execution when uscan is used to download upstream's tarball. With and without repacking (contrary to the commit message). http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=collab-maint/devscripts.git;a=commitdiff;h=02c6850d973e3e1246fde72edab27f03d63acc52 This was assigned CVE-2013-6888. Two other changes were made that IMO should be considered as hardening: http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=collab-maint/devscripts.git;a=commitdiff;h=4b7e58ee6000cdefac0682601cec6ecce0137467 http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=collab-maint/devscripts.git;a=commitdiff;h=b815aa438f018b5afc566eb403b0319a99a32995 At least I'm not aware of a way to exploit them.
