The LWN.net Weekly Edition for March 19, 2015 is available.
The OpenSSH 6.8 release is available. New features include host-key rotation support (to allow graceful changes to host keys), an option to require two public keys for authentication, and quite a few more.
Greg Kroah-Hartman has released a set of stable kernel updates: 3.19.2, 3.14.36, and 3.10.72. All contain the usual set of important fixes.
Debian has updated php5 (multiple vulnerabilities).
openSUSE has updated vorbis-tools (13.2, 13.1: denial of service).
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the SCO Group's lawsuit against IBM is once again alive and moving in Federal court. "In addition to its claims of IBM misappropriation of code, SCO alleges that IBM executives and lawyers directed the company's Linux programmers to destroy source code on their computers after SCO made its allegations. The company's other remaining claims are that IBM's actions amounted to unfair competition and interference with its contracts and business relations with other companies."
Qt 5.5 alpha has been released. "With Qt 5.5, Canvas 3D is fully supported and a technology preview of long awaited Qt 3D is included. Qt 5.5 also introduces mapping support with a Qt Location technology preview. Qt 5.5 Alpha is the first step towards Qt 5.5 final release planned to be available in May." Check out the New Features in Qt 5.5 page for more details.
When the schedule for the 2015 Linux Storage, Filesystem, and Memory Management Summit was laid out, its authors optimistically set aside 30 minutes on the first day for the thorny issue of memory-allocation problems in low-memory situations. That session (covered here) didn't get past the issue of whether small allocations should be allowed to fail, so the remainder of the discussion, focused on finding better solutions for the problem of allocations that simply cannot fail, was pushed into a plenary session on the second day.
With this article, LWN's coverage of the memory-management track at LSFMM 2015 is complete; sessions from the filesystems track are being added as well. It all can be found at the LWN LSFMM 2015 page.
Ubuntu has updated libav (12.04: multiple vulnerabilities).
The New Yorker notes the 30th anniversary of the GNU Manifesto. "Stallman was one of the first to grasp that, if commercial entities were going to own the methods and technologies that controlled computers, then computer users would inevitably become beholden to those entities. This has come to pass, and in spades. Most computer users have become dependent on proprietary code provided by companies like Apple, Facebook, and Google, the use of which comes with conditions we may not condone or even know about, and can’t control; we have forfeited the freedom to adapt such code according to our needs, preferences, and personal ethics."
Fedora has updated 389-admin (F21: multiple /tmp/ file vulnerabilities), cups-filters (F21; F20: remote command execution), gnupg (F20: multiple vulnerabilities), httpd (F21: multiple vulnerabilities), jBCrypt (F21; F20: integer overflow), kernel (F20: multiple vulnerabilities), libmspack (F21; F20: denial of service), libuv (F20: privilege escalation), nodejs (F20: privilege escalation), phpMyAdmin (F21; F20: information leak), putty (F21; F20: information disclosure), tcllib (F21: HTML injection), and v8 (F20: privilege escalation).
The fourth 4.0 prepatch is out for testing. Linus says: "Nothing particularly stands out here. Shortlog appended, I think we're doing fine for where in the release cycle we are."
Libre Graphics World has a look at the new release of OpenSCAD, the 3D solid-modeling tool often used in conjunction with 3D printers. The new features include support for complex text layout, offset functions for manipulating polygons, and the ability to generate height maps from PNG images. "The user interface got a few improvements as well: new startup dialog to quickly open recent files or examples from a library, new QScintilla-based code editor with folding support, SVG and AMF exporting, and more."
CentOS has updated kernel (C6: multiple vulnerabilities).
Oracle has updated gnome-shell, clutter, cogl, mutter (O7: lock screen bypass), httpd (O7: multiple vulnerabilities), ipa (O7: multiple vulnerabilities), kernel (O7: multiple vulnerabilities), krb5 (O7: multiple vulnerabilities), libreoffice (O7: code execution), libvirt (O7: multiple vulnerabilities), qemu-kvm (O7: multiple vulnerabilities), and thunderbird (O7: multiple vulnerabilities).
InformationWeek has a lengthy look at the maintenance of the network time protocol (NTP) code. "Not all is well within the NTP open source project. The number of volunteer contributors -- those who submit code for periodic updates, examine bug reports, and write fixes -- has shrunk over its long lifespan, even as its importance has increased. Its ongoing development and maintenance now rest mostly on the shoulders of [Harlan] Stenn, and that's why NTP faces a turning point. Stenn, who also works sporadically on his own consulting business, has given himself a deadline: Garner more financial support by April, 'or look for regular work.'"
Google has announced that the Google Code repository is shutting down. "As developers migrated away from Google Code, a growing share of the remaining projects were spam or abuse. Lately, the administrative load has consisted almost exclusively of abuse management. After profiling non-abusive activity on Google Code, it has become clear to us that the service simply isn’t needed anymore." New project creation has been stopped already; the final pulling of the plug will be in January 2016.
openSUSE has updated cacti (13.2, 13.1: multiple vulnerabilities).
Oracle has updated kernel (OL6: multiple vulnerabilities).
Red Hat has updated kernel (RHEL6: multiple vulnerabilities).
The LWN.net Weekly Edition for March 12, 2015 is available.
Since opening its doors in 2008, GitHub has grown to become the largest active project-hosting service for open-source software. But it has also attracted a fair share of criticism for some of its implementation choices—with one of the leading complaints being that it takes a lax approach to software licensing. That, in turn, leads to a glut of repositories bearing little or no licensing details. The company recently announced a new tool to help combat the license-confusion issue: a site-wide API for querying and reporting license information. Whether that API is up to the task, however, remains to be seen.
CentOS has updated bind (C6: denial of service).
Debian-LTS has updated axis (verification bypass).
openSUSE has updated autofs (13.2, 13.1: privilege escalation), glusterfs (13.1: denial of service), percona-toolkit (13.2, 13.1: man-in-the-middle attack), and putty (13.2, 13.1: information disclosure).
Oracle has updated bind (OL6: denial of service).
Red Hat has updated bind (RHEL6,7: denial of service).
As Michal Hocko noted at the beginning of his session at the 2015 Linux Storage, Filesystem, and Memory Management Summit, the news that the memory-management code will normally retry small allocations indefinitely rather than returning a failure status came as a surprise to many developers. In this session, the assembled group attempted to come up with ways to safely change this behavior. Click below (subscribers only) for the full report from LSFMM 2015.
