Description Arttu Valo 2008-05-19 15:22:17 UTC
GNUTLS-SA-2008-1 reported vulnerabilities have been patched in GnuTLS version 2.2.4 released today.
Comment 1 Tobias Heinlein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-19 15:31:31 UTC
Thanks for reporting.

Maintainer, please bump.
Comment 2 John Brooks 2008-05-20 00:01:39 UTC
Should be dealt with quickly; there are three seperate remotely triggerable (prior to authentication) crash bugs fixed in this release, and at least two of them will affect almost any server application using GnuTLS. Should update to 2.2.5 rather than 2.2.4 - it fixes an issue introduced when fixing these vulnerabilities.
Comment 3 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-20 02:18:23 UTC
It is currently unclear whether these bugs could be exploited to execute arbitrary code, so until that is clear, we should handle it as A1.

dragonheart, since alonbl unfortunately is retiring, can you bump this package?

Which should go stable, then?
Comment 8 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-20 14:37:04 UTC
Arches, please test and mark stable:
Target keywords : "alpha amd64 arm hppa ia64 m68k ppc ppc64 release s390 sh sparc x86"
Comment 9 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-20 15:20:13 UTC
Might help to put a copy in distfiles-local quickly.

Done. The is incredibly slow.
Comment 11 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-20 16:02:47 UTC
Stable for HPPA.
Comment 12 franky 2008-05-20 17:50:42 UTC
guys, there's somthing wrong with the configure options in gnutls-2.2.x!

local myconf
        use bindist && myconf="--disable-lzo" || myconf="$(use_enable lzo)"

--disable-lzo should be --without-lzo, otherwise it's a UNRECOGNIZED option,
and (use_enable lzo) should be (use_with lzo).

Shall i open a new bug report? Just discovered the issue.

Comment 13 Raúl Porcel (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-20 19:08:43 UTC
alpha/ia64/sparc/x86 stable.

Franz, please open a new bug.
Comment 14 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-20 19:16:07 UTC
Thanks for spotting this Franz:

./configure --prefix=/usr --host=powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --datadir=/usr/share --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var/lib --without-included-opencdk --with-zlib --with-lzo --enable-nls --disable-guile --disable-gtk-doc --enable-lzo --libdir=/usr/lib64 --build=powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu
configure: WARNING: Unrecognized options: --enable-lzo

the error is from the redundant entrys --enable-lzo and --with-lzo.

src_compile() logic is broken. it does first "use bindist && myconf="--disable-lzo" || myconf="$(use_enable lzo)"" and then "econf [...] $(use_with lzo)"

I removed the redundant one after econf and changed use_enable to use_with in the bindist line. I also changed --disable-lzo to --without-lzo.

ppc64 stable by the way.
