File Release Notes and Changelog

Release Name: 6.0.9

Release Notes
This is the ninth maintenance release of the Greenbone Security Assistant (GSA)
6.0 module for the Open Vulnerability Assessment System release 8 (OpenVAS-8).

This release addresses an important security issue:
- Due to incomplete URL checking it was possible to trigger a segmentation
  fault terminating the main daemon process by including invalid UTF-8
  characters in a request URL.

The release also incorporates several improvements from the development branch
of OpenVAS. Please see below for a comprehensive list of changes.

Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this release:
Matthew Mundell, Timo Pollmeier and Jan-Oliver Wagner.
Change Log
Main changes compared to 6.0.8:
* Requests and their parameters are now checked for invalid UTF-8.
* An issue which caused a GLib critical error when parsing parameters under
  certain circumstances has been addressed.
* The values for a number of parameters are now checked more strictly.
