    Dosbox 0.74-3 is a security release:
    * Fixed that a very long line inside a bat file would overflow the
      parsing buffer. (CVE-2019-7165 by Alexandre Bartel)
    * Added a basic permission system so that a program running inside
      DOSBox can't access the contents of /proc (e.g. /proc/self/mem) when
      / or /proc were (to be) mounted. (CVE-2019-12594 by Alexandre Bartel)
    
    It also brings several other fixes for out of bounds access and buffer
    overflows, and some fixes to the OpenGL rendering.
    
    The game compatibility should be identical to 0.74 and 0.74-2.
    It is recommended to use config -securemode when dealing with untrusted
    files.
