Description François Bissey 2022-05-05 23:14:27 UTC
A new version of gmp-ecm has been released yesterday (7.0.5).

I am currently testing a branch and will push once everything looks in order.

The new release includes fixes for all the issues requiring patch previously.

The new release has support for cuda but I cannot test it (I currently have an intel card). But the build system for the cuda driver looks far more robust than cholmod for example.

Reproducible: Always

"Modules for TCP syslog reception have a heap buffer overflow when octet-counted framing is used. The attacker can corrupt heap values, leading to data integrity issues and availability impact. Remote code execution is unlikely to happen but not impossible."
