Slackwarearm-current ChangeLog (2018-06-01)

Fri Jun 01 08:08:08 UTC 2018

The mini root filesystem for -current has been updated:
  • a/kernel-modules-armv7-4.16.13_armv7-arm-1.txz
  • a/kernel_armv7-4.16.13-arm-1.txz
  • ap/slackpkg-2.83.0-noarch-1.txz
    Release 2.83.0; thanks to orbea, Didier Spaier, burdi01, David Allen,
    Eduard Rozenberg, and Stuart Winter for various fixes and enhancements.
    Allow using vimdiff to compare .new and original files
    Numerous fixups for alternate $ROOT
    .new config files are sorted so that display order should be consistent
    among multiple machines
    mandoc lint fixes to slackpkg.8
    Warn user if a -current mirror is selected (but only warn once)
  • d/git-2.17.1-arm-1.txz
    This update fixes security issues:
    Submodule “names” come from the untrusted .gitmodules file, but we
    blindly append them to $GIT_DIR/modules to create our on-disk repo
    paths. This means you can do bad things by putting “../” into the
    name. We now enforce some rules for submodule names which will cause
    Git to ignore these malicious names (CVE-2018-11235).
    Credit for finding this vulnerability and the proof of concept from
    which the test script was adapted goes to Etienne Stalmans.
    It was possible to trick the code that sanity-checks paths on NTFS
    into reading random piece of memory (CVE-2018-11233).
    Credit for fixing for these bugs goes to Jeff King, Johannes
    Schindelin and others.

  • n/network-scripts-15.0-noarch-6.txz
    Allow setting an interface in promiscuous mode; this is needed for networking
    to function properly in containers
    Fixup setting of IPALIASES (allow non /32 masks; not only is the /32 mask not
    required and even undesirable in some cases, this makes ipv6 support easier
    to integrate (and Darren is working on that as well)
