The OpenVAS developers are happy to announce the fifth maintenance
release of the openvas-scanner 3.2 module for the Open Vulnerability
Assessment System release 4 (OpenVAS-4).

This release addresses a security issue related to the optional use of
the external tool "ovaldi" by making file ownership and location more
secure. This fixes the issue described in OSVDB-75177.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release:
Michael Wiegand.

Main changes compared to 3.2.4:
* The optional use of the external tool "ovaldi" has been made more

The source tarball for this release along with checksums and signatures
is available for download from the OpenVAS website at
http://www.openvas.org/. Binary packages for major GNU/Linux
distributions by third parties are expected in the following weeks.
