PackagesStableBug ReportVery LowMedium[arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi-gcc] not working; needs prop...Unconfirmed
Task Description

I believe the arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi-gcc package to be broken as described here.

Additional info:
* package version(s) - arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi-gcc - all versions

Steps to reproduce:
I don't think "steps to reproduce" to be relevant in this case. My forum topic linked above already contains all the necessary info on the subject :) However, one could try compiling glibc and busybox as described here. Yes, these are instructions for debian-like systems. They have to be adapted accordingly

PackagesStableBug ReportVery LowHigh[vlc] DVB : cache_block stream error: cannot pre fill b...Unconfirmed
Task Description

Current VLC version (3.0.4-3.hyperbola1.backports1) fails to play DVB stream using a RTL2832 usb dongle.

I start the playlist like this :

vlc channels.conf

but it returns the following error :

cache_block stream error: cannot pre fill buffer

Also, it asks the user to be in “video” group to access DVB device, this was not needed before with Hyperbola 0.2.9. User being in “wheel” was enough.
Anyway, even after adding my user to video group, it still fails with “cache_block stream error: cannot pre fill buffer”

This is not an issue with my DVB adapter or driver. rtl2832 is correctly loaded. And I can play the channels.conf playlist just fine with “mpv” or “mplayer”.
Also, the channels.conf used works just fine with a more recent version of VLC on an other system (Manjaro) so something is broken with the current VLC used.

Maybe a package bump would fix the issue.

Task Description

The sshguard package should have its /usr/bin/sshguard executable in /usr/sbin, has systemd service files and no OpenRC init script

Additional info:

# sshguard

This package has a strong systemd integration. It has a systemd backend to get files modifications:

#              Specifying "logpath" is not valid for this backend.

PackagesStableBug ReportVery LowVery Low[fail2ban] update dovecot failregex to support verbose ...Unconfirmed
Task Description

The /etc/fail2ban/filter.d/dovecot.conf file has a failregex with the following:

^%(__prefix_line)s(?:auth|auth-worker\(\d+\)): (?:pam|passwd-file)\(\S+,<HOST>\): unknown user\s*$

and works with things like:

Month day time hostname dovecot: auth: passwd-file(,IP): unknown user

but with verbosity enabled in Dovecot, this output looks like this:

Month day time hostname dovecot: auth: passwd-file(,IP): unknown user (given password: password)

and in this case it doesn’t work, but it does if we fix the failregex if we replace it with:

^%(__prefix_line)s(?:auth|auth-worker\(\d+\)): (?:pam|passwd-file)\(\S+,<HOST>\): unknown user( \(given password: \S*\))?\s*$

with this new expression, it works with and without verbosity

And regarding postfix, to make it work correctly I “backported” some pieces from newest failregex:


^%(__prefix_line)sNOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from \S+\[<HOST>\]: [45]54 [45]\.7\.1 Service unavailable; Client host \[\S+\] blocked using .* from=<\S*> to=<\S+> proto=ESMTP helo=<\S*>$

/etc/fail2ban/postfix.conf: (second failregex)

^%(__prefix_line)sNOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from \S+\[<HOST>\]: 45[04] 4\.7\.1 Client host rejected: cannot find your (reverse )?hostname, (\[\S*\]); from=<\S*> to=<\S+> proto=ESMTP helo=<\S*>$

I can create a patch if you want. Note that I haven’t tested all filters, some others may also need some rework

PackagesStableSecurity IssueVery LowMedium[git] Multiple CVEsUnconfirmed
Task Description

CVE-2020-5260 has been fixed very recently in Debian, so I thought I would apply this patch. However, I found out that security patches have not been applied for quite a while (I could account for at least 6 CVEs).

Considering that the version in Debian stretch (2.11.0) is the nearest version with security patches released by Debian and that git project oldest supported version is 2.17, I have used patches from Debian stretch to apply on 2.12.2 currently in Milky Way.

But I have the following error on check():

Additionally, we could include USB Guard and any other features that meet our social contract and security outlook.

PackagesTestingReplace RequestVery LowMedium replace request: NetworkManager with wpa_cuteUnconfirmed
Task Description

I know there are plans to remove NetworkManager. I wondered if we could replace it in 0.4 with Wpa_Cute. seen in the above link.

I haven’t been able to compile it, but it has been updated as recent as 2018 december (stable)

or 2019 january. :)

WPA_GUI doesn’t seem to work well for me, it runs into weird errors when I start it. Long story short, I run into this issue with wpa_supplicant when i do it manually:

Password-related problems

wpa_supplicant may not work properly if directly passed via stdin particularly long or complex passphrases which include special characters. This may lead to errors such as failed 4-way WPA handshake, PSK may be wrong when launching wpa_supplicant.

In order to solve this try using here strings wpa_passphrase <MYSSID> «< “<passphrase>” or passing a file to the -c flag instead:

# wpa_supplicant -i <interface> -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/example.conf

In some instances it was found that storing the passphrase cleartext in the psk key of the wpa_supplicant.conf network block gave positive results (see [2]). However, this approach is rather insecure. Using wpa_cli to create this file instead of manually writing it gives the best results most of the time and therefore is the recommended way to proceed.
Problems with eduroam and other MSCHAPv2 connections

This is my issue with wpa_supplicant sadly... and I do not know how to workaround that without a GUI.

but Wpa_Supplicant_gui does not fix it either, it doesn’t even load properly on my other laptop.

It says it cannot get the status of wpa_supplicant when I load it.

This could be an issue if you get rid of NetworkManager for some users.

So yeah, please take a look at my request okay? Wait for 0.3 to be released to add this if possible. I know you guys are overworked, etc... and it doesn’t need to be done now anyhow. ;)
