Description John Helmert III gentoo-dev Security 2021-01-19 23:19:32 UTC
libgcrypt 1.9 appears to have a few security fixes:

   - Fix infinite loop due to applications using fork the wrong
     way.  [#3491][also in 1.8.4]
   - Fix possible leak of a few bits of secret primes to pageable
     memory.  [#3848][also in 1.8.4]
   - Fix possible hang in the RNG (1.8.3 only).  [#4034][also in 1.8.4]
   - Use blinding for ECDSA signing to mitigate a novel side-channel
     attack.  [#4011,CVE-2018-0495] [also in 1.8.3, 1.7.10]
   - Fix rare assertion failure in gcry_prime_check.  [also in 1.8.3]
   - Add mitigation against ECC timing attack CVE-2019-13626.  [#4626]

The CVE here was CVE-2019-13627 according to the upstream issue, not CVE-2019-13626.
Comment 1 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) gentoo-dev 2021-01-20 08:19:50 UTC
Just to be clear here, CVE-2019-13627 seems to be the only fix that is not in currently available versions in Gentoo. We have 1.8.6 in stable and 1.8.7 in unstable.

    dev-libs/libgcrypt: (security) bump to 1.9.1
    This includes a critical security fix on 1.9.0 (currently masked).
    Note that the mask on 1.9.0 currently forces a downgrade
    to the safe 1.8.x series.
    Package-Manager: Portage-3.0.14, Repoman-3.0.2
