Task Description

The developer team is discussing the removal of Midori from Debian repositories.

Jeremy Bicha says:


> The final stable release of Midori still uses the unmaintained WebKit1
> instead of webkit2gtk and therefore the browser suffers from numerous
> known security vulnerabilities. Midori now fails to build with vala
> 0.36 which is in Ubuntu 17.10 Alpha and will be in Debian unstable

100%
Task Description

LibreSSL is a version of the TLS/crypto stack forked from OpenSSL in 2014, with goals of modernizing the codebase, improving security, and applying best practice development processes.

It was forked from the OpenSSL in April 2014 as a response by OpenBSD developers to the Heartbleed security vulnerability in OpenSSL, [4] [5] [6] [7] with the aim of refactoring the OpenSSL code so as to provide a more secure implementation. [8]

As LibreSSL follow the same goals than Hyperbola Packaging Guidelines in stability and security concerns, it should be the default provider of SSL and TLS protocols for Hyperbola Project.

100%
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.

AnyFeature RequestHighCritical [pacman-key][cronie][fcron] eating up hardware resource ...Closed
100%
Task Description

This morning while I was working on my X200, I noticed that my CPU was kept 100% busy for a long time by some process which was obvioulsy eating up the battery life. The culprit was pacman-key, triggered by logrotate.

To stop this, I did ‘chmod -x /etc/cron.daily/pacman-key’ and I rebooted.

Later on, it was impossible to install a new package as it was impossible to get over the step marked as “checking keys in keyring...”

So I tried to do again ‘pacman-key –refresh-keys’: the overall process took more than an hour—behind a fast and robust internet connection. I finally got three lines, saying that about 1,000 keys were updated but I never got the prompt back. So I hit Ctrl-C.

At the time of writing, I am still trying to refresh the keys—a quite desperate attempt, if I may say so.

Although I tagged this report as a “Feature request”, it is in my opinion of quite some importance. I understand very well the absolute necessity to always have the keys updated, but in this particular case, with so many keys and so frequent updates, I begin to wonder if losses are not beginning to prevail over benefits.

Unless I am doing something wrong or missing something I should do?

Any help would be strongly appreciated.

AnySecurity IssueHighCritical [python2] heap-overflow vulnerability CVE-2018-1000030 Closed
100%
Task Description

Python 2.7.14 is vulnerable to a Heap-Buffer-Overflow as well as a Heap-Use-After-Free. Python versions prior to 2.7.14 may also be vulnerable and it appears that Python 2.7.17 and prior may also be vulnerable however this has not been confirmed. The vulnerability lies when multiply threads are handling large amounts of data. In both cases there is essentially a race condition that occurs. For the Heap-Buffer-Overflow, Thread 2 is creating the size for a buffer, but Thread1 is already writing to the buffer without knowing how much to write. So when a large amount of data is being processed, it is very easy to cause memory corruption using a Heap-Buffer-Overflow. As for the Use-After-Free, Thread3→Malloc→Thread1→Free’s→Thread2-Re-uses-Free’d Memory. The PSRT has stated that this is not a security vulnerability due to the fact that the attacker must be able to run code, however in some situations, such as function as a service, this vulnerability can potentially be used by an attacker to violate a trust boundary, as such the DWF feels this issue deserves a CVE.
