PackagesAnyUpdate RequestMediumHighMake Knock patch for Linux-libre 4.14 LTSUnconfirmed
0%
Task Description

The Knock patches for linux-libre maintained by you at https://git.hyperbola.info:50100/kernels/knock.git/ have support up to linux-libre 4.13 only (and I think it didn’t work for it when I tried it, compilation failed) but from all of those supported versions, the newest maintained generation by the upstream is 4.9.x

However, since newer kernel generations might require reprogramming the patch, I want to request it only for the latest LTS generation which is 4.14. As you know, LTS software are supported for a long time, so it’s worth to make it for linux-libre 4.14.x

This might not be really important for Hyperbola in the short term, but you are the maintainers of the TCP Stealth implementation for Linux-libre and I and maybe other people would like to use it in their projects for newer versions.

Plus, it would be great since while 4.9 kernels can use the GRSec+Knock combination like linux-libre-lts-unofficial-grsec-knock, with support for 4.14 anyone would be able to use a combination of newer patches such as Linux-hardened+Knock (Linux-hardened supports 4.14 and 4.15 as of now) which is what I’d like to do.

PackagesAnyBug ReportVery LowCritical[system-config-printer] Impossible to print some pdfs (...Assigned

Task Description

Hello,

I’m unable to print some pdfs on my Hyperbola 3.0 system.
Some background :

cups is installed, service enabled and working
system-config-printer is installed and my printer has been correctly added.

I can print most pdfs and text files but recently with a pdf, it fails to print it.* And system-config-printer returned the following error (see capture) :

Printer "EPSON XP-620-Series" requires the '/usr/lib/cups/filters/epson-escpr-wrapper' but it is not currently installed.

Currently, “epson-escpr-wrapper” is installed but it is in :

/usr/libexec/cups/filters/epson-escpr-wrapper

Looking at source code of system-config-printer, it expects that wrapper to be installed in “/usr/lib/” so I tried to symlink that “epson-escpr-wrapper” to “/usr/lib/cups/filters” but it doesn’t work..

*With a Debian system and the exact same configuration, the “problematic” pdf prints just fine so it is not an issue with the pdf.

Summary

We discovered a vulnerability in OpenSMTPD, OpenBSD’s mail server. This
vulnerability, an out-of-bounds read introduced in December 2015 (commit
80c6a60c, “when peer outputs a multi-line response ...”), is exploitable
remotely and leads to the execution of arbitrary shell commands: either
as root, after May 2018 (commit a8e22235, “switch smtpd to new
grammar”); or as any non-root user, before May 2018.

Because this vulnerability resides in OpenSMTPD’s client-side code
(which delivers mail to remote SMTP servers), we must consider two
different scenarios:

- Client-side exploitation: This vulnerability is remotely exploitable

in OpenSMTPD's (and hence OpenBSD's) default configuration. Although
OpenSMTPD listens on localhost only, by default, it does accept mail
from local users and delivers it to remote servers. If such a remote
server is controlled by an attacker (either because it is malicious or
compromised, or because of a man-in-the-middle, DNS, or BGP attack --
SMTP is not TLS-encrypted by default), then the attacker can execute
arbitrary shell commands on the vulnerable OpenSMTPD installation.

- Server-side exploitation: First, the attacker must connect to the

OpenSMTPD server (which accepts external mail) and send a mail that
creates a bounce. Next, when OpenSMTPD connects back to their mail
server to deliver this bounce, the attacker can exploit OpenSMTPD's
client-side vulnerability. Last, for their shell commands to be
executed, the attacker must (to the best of our knowledge) crash
OpenSMTPD and wait until it is restarted (either manually by an
administrator, or automatically by a system update or reboot).

We developed a simple exploit for this vulnerability and successfully
tested it against OpenBSD 6.6 (the current release), OpenBSD 5.9 (the
first vulnerable release), Debian 10 (stable), Debian 11 (testing), and
Fedora 31.

The fix is delivered in OpenSMTPD 6.6.4p1, available here, which the developer recommends installing “AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.”

Task Description

I’m writing here about the package Conky. It is the useful widget of system monitor into your desktop, but there are some serious issues:

Config variables

  • distribution outputs the string “Arch Linux” instead of “Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre”.
  • eve requires users to use API for non-libre/free video game EVE Online, and should be removed.
  • All Beep Media Player (BMPx) related variables (including bmpx_album, bmpx_artist, bmpx_bitrate, bmpx_title, bmpx_track and bmpx_uri) are obselete and useless, and should be removed because the package BMPx isn’t present on Arch and Hyperbola official repositories but Arch User Repository (AUR).
  • [For Milky Way version 0.4.x only] All PulseAudio related variables (including if_pa_sink_muted, pa_sink_volume, pa_sink_volumebar, pa_sink_description, pa_card_name and pa_card_active_profile) are no longer used, and should be removed due replaced the default audio server with sndio.

Task Description

Avahi is a zero-configuration networking implementation that contains critical security issues because mDNS operates under a different trust model than unicast DNS trusting the entire network rather than a designated DNS server, it is vulnerable to spoofing attacks by any system within the multicast IP range. Like SNMP and many other network management protocols, it can also be used by attackers to quickly gain detailed knowledge of the network and its machines. [0]

Since it violates the Hyperbola Social Contract , Avahi should be blacklisted.

Software DevelopmentGeneralImplementation RequestDeferCriticalRISC-V (riscv64) porting + multilib supportDeferred
0%
Task Description

The unfortunate reality is that x86 computers come encumbered with built-in low-level backdoors like the Intel Management Engine , as well as nonfree boot firmware. This means that users can’t gain full control over their computers, even if they install a free operating system such as Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre .

Hyperbola is working hard to fix these issues and getting closer every day, but for the time being, this is why many current Respects Your Freedom (RYF) offerings are refurbished older devices.

For the future of free computing, we need support architectures that do not come with such malware pre-installed, and RISC-V promises to be a great architecture example for low-power computers, laptops and embedded systems, also as ARM architecture replacement.

Devices like this are the future of computing that Respects Your Freedom and for that reason it’s a high priority for Hyperbola port all packages for the RISC-V architecture (riscv64) with multilib support.

NOTE: RISC-V porting is focused only for Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre .

This means that users can’t gain full control over their computers, even if they install a free operating system such as Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre .

Hyperbola is working hard to fix these issues and getting closer every day, but for the time being, this is why many current Respects Your Freedom (RYF) offerings are refurbished older devices.

For the future of free computing, we need support architectures that do not come with such malware pre-installed, and the Power9-based Talos II promises to be a great architecture example for workstations and servers environments where Hyperbola is focused since is a fully free long-term support distribution.

Devices like this are the future of computing that Respects Your Freedom and for that reason it’s a high priority for Hyperbola port all packages for the POWER architecture (power64le).

NOTE: POWER porting is focused only for Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre .

Task Description

Develop HyperBK (Hyper Berkeley Kernel), a BSD descendant kernel with GPL-compatible licenses preserved, non-compatible ones removed, and new code written under GPL-3 for HyperbolaBSD.

TODO:

  • Download OpenBSD kernel source code from OpenBSD siteDONE
  • Download LibertyBSD scripts to deblob and rebrand kernel from their scripts. → DONE
  • Push source to HyperBK’s project. → DONE
  • Rebrand OpenBSD kernel to HyperbolaBSD with LibertyBSD scripts. → DONE
  • Rebrand entire code (functions, variable, pointers, etc) under HyperbolaBSD → DONE
  • Remove files under non GPL-compatible licenses → DONE
  • Import code from another BSD systems under GPL-compatible licenses → IN PROGRESS
  • Write new code under GPL-3 → IN PROGRESS
  • Package HyperBK for HyperbolaBSD.

PATCHING NOTE

When the check concerns kernel, we obviously want to match with HyperbolaBSD.

Example of triplet check:	hyperbolabsd)
Example of uname -s check:	HyperbolaBSD)
Example of uname -r check:	0.1)
Example of C macro check:	defined(__HyperbolaBSD__)

For the future of free computing, we need support architectures that do not come with such malware pre-installed, and ARM A7/A53 promises to be a great architecture example for low-power computers, laptops and embedded systems.

NOTE: ARM porting is focused only for HyperbolaBSD .
