  • a/kernel_armv7-4.19.7-arm-1.txz
    For QEMU:-
    We're trying to get QEMU's VNC support working. I thought that
    this may work, but it seems that more work is to be done.
    CONFIG_VIRTIO_CONSOLE=m > y
    CONFIG_VIRTIO=m → y
    CONFIG_VIRTIO_BALLOON=m → y
    CONFIG_VIRTIO_INPUT=m → y

    CONFIG_VIRTIO_PCI_LEGACY=y
    CONFIG_VIRTIO_MMIO=y
    CONFIG_VIRTIO_MMIO_CMDLINE_DEVICES=y

    For AllWinner H3 (thanks to sndwvs on LQ for the info):
    The 'U-Boot' version we're shipping hasn't been updated yet, as
    it won't save its environment to the SD card's FAT file system,
    so presently there's no HDMI console support for the H3.

  • n/gnutls-3.6.5-arm-1.txz
    This update fixes a security issue:
    Bleichenbacher-like side channel leakage in PKCS#1 1.5 verification and
    padding oracle verification.
    For more information, see:
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-16868
    (* Security fix *)
  • n/nettle-3.4.1-arm-1.txz
    This update fixes a security issue:
    A Bleichenbacher type side-channel based padding oracle attack was found
    in the way nettle handles endian conversion of RSA decrypted PKCS#1 v1.5
    data. An attacker who is able to run a process on the same physical core
    as the victim process, could use this flaw to extract plaintext or in some
    cases downgrade any TLS connections to a vulnerable server.
    For more information, see:
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-16869
    (* Security fix *)
