general- purpose PBM format and back, so you can print or manipulate
them. G3 is used by fax modems and machines.
The g3utils are included in the mgetty source package.

2018-09-21 - Marketa Calabkova <mcalabkova@suse.com>
- Added patches:
* mgetty-fix-buffer-overflow.patch - upstream patch, sets maximum
length of a string to prevent buffer overflow and thus possible
command injection
* mgetty-delete-obsolete.patch - upstream-based patch, deletes
obsolete file contrib/scrts.c, which could cause buffer overflow
- Fixed bugs:
* bsc#1108756 (CVE-2018-16745): Stack-based buffer overflow in
fax_notify_mail() in faxrec.c
* bsc#1108757 (CVE-2018-16744): Command injection in faxrec.c
* bsc#1108762 (CVE-2018-16742): Stack-based buffer overflow in
contrib/scrts.c triggered via command line parameter
* bsc#1108761 (CVE-2018-16743): Stack-based buffer overflow with
long username in contrib/next-login/login.c
