Summary of Changes to the Packages Collection in March 2005 =========================================================== By my calculations, at the end of March 2005, there were 5377 packages in the Packages Collection, up from 5331 the previous month, a rise of 46. However, after a recount spurred upon me by Andrew Brown, who pointed out that I'd been counting the number of distinct packages, but missing out packages where was more than one version in pkgsrc, like apache. So I now declare the number of packages in pkgsrc to be 5439 at the end of March 2005. Until the next recount, that is. Notable additions include: arka, byacc, DatLib, DatUtil, dsniff-nox11, e16menuedit2, gaim-otr, ggiterm, gnome-backgrounds, gnome-doc-utils, gnome-menus, gopchop, gtk2-engines-clearlooks, gtkhtml36, gxemul, ja-sazanami-ttf, kde3-i18n-br, kde3-i18n-fy, kde3-i18n-ga, kde3-i18n-lt, kde3-i18n-mk, kde3-i18n-se, kochi-ttf, koffice-i18n-ja, koffice-i18n-lo, koffice-i18n-mt, koffice-i18n-nb, koffice-i18n-nn, koffice-i18n-pt, koffice-i18n-pt_BR, koffice-i18n-sl, koffice-i18n-sr, koffice-i18n-tg, koffice-i18n-th, koffice-i18n-tr, koffice-i18n-ven, koffice-i18n-xh, koffice-i18n-zh_CN, koffice-i18n-zh_TW, koffice-i18n-zu, lbdb, libggimisc, libgiigic, libotr, lucy, MAMEDiff, mdf2iso, openttd, p5-Carp-Clan, p5-Class-Autouse, p5-Class-MakeMethods, p5-ExtUtils-AutoInstall, p5-Net-Dev-MIBLoadOrder, ROMBuild, ROMInfo, ruby-doc-stdlib, ruby-imlib2, ruby-redcloth, ruby-xmlscan, ruby16-base, ruby16-digest, ruby18-base, shapelib, socket++, sparsehash, sqlite3-tcl, sylpheed-devel, systrace-policies, totem, totem-xine, turba, wdic, wiliki, xentools20, ximian-connector, xmms-wma, and ZIPIdent.

[For the full details on the changes mentioned below, please refer to the tech-pkg mailing list - agc] Summary of Changes to the Packages Collection in December 2004 ============================================================== By my calculations, at the end of December 2004, there were 5266 packages in the NetBSD Packages Collection, up from 5190 the previous month, a rise of 76. In December, there was a freeze on new functionality, and following that, the pkgsrc-2004Q4 branch was made. The freeze started on 6th December, and lasted 2 weeks. The old pkgsrc-2004Q3 branch has now been deprecated, and continuing engineering now takes place on pkgsrc-2004Q4. My thanks to all pkgsrc developers and users for their help in making the new branch. We also had new versions of kde, gnome, and an addition of a wiki. The first annual Alistair Crooks "My Login on All Files" award goes to Grant Beattie for his updates of perl5 packages. As part of the infrastructure, we've modified the pkg_install utilities, so that they use a large buffer for full path names, even on operating systems which don't use the Berkeley FFS. Notable additions include: anthy, anthy-elisp, ap-rivet, ap2-chroot, bglibs, bmp-musepack, easymenu, ec-fonts-mftraced, edcommon, elscreen, epeg, exult, figlet-fonts, firefox-gtk2-bin-acroread, flac2mp3, freepats, getopt, gimp-docs, glade2-gnome, gnumeric, gob2, gtk2-chtheme, guile-lib, kde3-i18n-af, kde3-i18n-gl, lablgtk2, labltk, libmusepack, mailgraph, mdd, mixminion, mldonkey-gui, msnre, netgroup, ocaml-graphics, p5-Business-ISBN-Data, p5-Class-DBI-AbstractSearch, p5-File-Tail, p5-IO-All, p5-IO-Multiplex, p5-Kwiki, p5-Kwiki-Archive-Rcs, p5-Kwiki-BreadCrumbs, p5-Kwiki-Favorites, p5-Kwiki-HtmlBlocks, p5-Kwiki-Icons-Gnome, p5-Kwiki-NewPage, p5-Kwiki-ParagraphBlocks, p5-Kwiki-PreformattedBlocks, p5-Kwiki-RecentChanges, p5-Kwiki-Revisions, p5-Kwiki-Scode, p5-Kwiki-Search, p5-Kwiki-UserName, p5-Kwiki-UserPreferences, p5-Math-Random, p5-Spiffy, p5-Spoon, ...

The pkgsrc-2008Q3 Branch ======================== The pkgsrc developers are very proud to announce the new pkgsrc-2008Q3 release, which has support for more packages than previous releases. As well as updated versions of many packages, the infrastructure of pkgsrc itself has been improved for better platform and compiler support. At the same time, the pkgsrc-2008Q2 release has been deprecated, and continuing engineering starts on the pkgsrc-2008Q3 release. With more than ten years of pkgsrc development behind us, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the people who have made pkgsrc the most portable packaging system in the world - to all of the users, developers and supporters a very large "Thank you" from all of us. Some highlights of the new pkgsrc-2008Q3 release are: + many more packages have been moved to install into a staging directory - the DESTDIR work that Joerg Sonnenberger has done almost singlehandedly + many, many packages have been updated to newer versions, to take advantage of fixes and improved functionality. The following versions of packages are included in the pkgsrc-2008Q3 release: + apache-2.2.9 + firefox-188.8.131.52 and firefox-3.0.3 + gnome-2.22.3 + kde-3.5.10 + mysql-5.0.67 + openoffice-2.4.1nb3 + opera-9.52 + postgresql-8.3.3 + python-2.5.2nb4 + ruby-184.108.40.206 + samba-3.0.32 + seamonkey-1.1.12 + wireshark-1.0.3 + zope-3.3.1 + other notable changes include + Steve Bellovin has updated the claws email suite + Stoned Elipot and Havard Eidnes have made it their personal goal to incorporate all the CPAN packages into pkgsrc + thanks to Matthias Drochner for keeping on top of all the gnome packages, and to Mark Davies for our kde packages + video support has been vastly enhanced-- NetBSD-current now has support for some video devices, and Jared Mcneill has added and extended quite a few packages for that (libv4l, unicap, cheese, ucview, opal, ekiga, tvtime; extended mplayer, ...

THE 1.6 RELEASE PROCESS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We are pleased to announce that NetBSD 1.6 has branched and the release engineering process has begun. With 1.6, we have introduced a new method of producing release snapshots that will substantially improve testing of the release binaries on multiple platforms. For the initial phase of the release process, we are producing binaries for most platforms on a daily basis from a common codebase, using the integrated cross-compilation system. In order to help test the release on as diverse a collection of hardware as possible, we encourage everyone capable of testing the release to download snapshots frequently and report problems via "send-pr" or e-mail to "email@example.com". Also, problems building the release branch sources should be reported with relevant build environment information. ===== WHERE TO GET 1.6 RELEASE SNAPSHOTS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Daily snapshots of the release in progress, during the first "BETA" phase, will be made available from: ftp://releng.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-daily/TIMESTAMP/MACHINE/ This is not "ftp.netbsd.org"; it is a separate machine so as not to overload our FTP mirrors. Because of the frequency of builds, we ask that no one mirror specific portions of this FTP server, as the "NetBSD-daily" directory will grow in size rather quickly. The timestamp is a YYYYMMDDhhmm (year, month, day, hour, minute) timestamp, which reflects the UTC time supplied to "cvs checkout" in order to build the snapshot. This way, it is possible to reproduce part or all of the source tree directly from anoncvs. A set of source tarballs will also be supplied with each day's set of snapshots, in the subdirectory "source". Note: X11 binaries must still be built on native hardware. Because of this, X11 sets may not be available with a snapshot, or they may be the same binaries carried forward from an earlier snapshot. Snapshots of the single "RC" phase builds will be available ...
Metadata journaling support added to FFS ======================================== Simon Burge has just added metadata journaling to the FFS (fast file system) code to NetBSD-current. The journaling code, known as WAPBL - Write Ahead Physical Block Logging - was originally written by Darrin B. Jewell for Wasabi Systems, Inc. , and was contributed by Wasabi to the NetBSD community earlier this year. Wasabi has been shipping WAPBL-enabled products since 2003. Simon Burge, Greg Oster, Antti Kantee, and Andrew Doran spent quite some time on integrating this code into NetBSD-current and enhancing it to allow automatic creation of the journal log area inside existing filesystems to ease conversion. They also did some performance benchmarks and WAPBL performs very close to soft-dependencies mounts, and only slightly slower than (unsafe) async mounts. In case of a crash or unexpected power loss however, the journaled file system will not need a lengthy file system check at boot time, but instead the kernel will replay the log within seconds. This allows faster crash recovery, less overall downtime and higher availability. Converting an existing system to use the log feature is as easy as updating (both kernel and userland), making sure the kernel option WAPBL is selected (this is the default for GENERIC kernels now), adding a "log" option to /etc/fstab and rebooting. Note that WAPBL is not compatible with soft-dependencies, so please ensure that you first remove the "softdep" option if present. See the wapbl(4) manual page for more information. The WAPBL feature will be available in the upcoming NetBSD 5.0 release. Many thanks to Wasabi Systems, Inc. for contributing this code, everyone that helped to integrate it and especially Simon Burge for his work on the in-filesystem journal. Jared D. McNeill The NetBSD Foundation  http://www.wasabisystems.com/

The vulnerabilities relate to the processing of SIG queries and recursive queries. The SIG query processing issue has been assigned CVE reference CVE-2006-4095. The recursive query issue has been assigned CVE reference CVE-2006-4096. Technical Details ================= Issue #1: SIG query processing It is possible for an attacker to crash a name server by sending certain SIG queries. SIG queries are a part of the RFC 2535 DNSSEC extensions. The exploitation of this issue is dependent on the configuration of the name server that receives the query: * Recursive servers Queries for SIG records will trigger an assertion failure if more than one RRset is returned. * Authoritative servers Queries for SIG records will trigger and assertion failure where there are multiple RRsets when the name server tries to construct the response. Issue #2: Recursive query handling It is possible for an attacker to crash a name server by sending enough recursive queries that the response to the query arrives after all the clients ...

This may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the sendmail user. This vulnerability has been assigned CVE reference CVE-2006-0058. Technical Details ================= Sendmail contains a race condition caused by the improper handling of asynchronous signals. In particular, by forcing the SMTP server to have an I/O timeout at exactly the correct instant, an attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the Sendmail process. Solutions and Workarounds ========================= Sendmail by default on NetBSD is bound to localhost (127.0.0.0, ::1) and as such is not externally reachable. However, it is recommended that all users of affected versions update their sendmail to include the fix. The following instructions describe how to upgrade your sendmail binaries by updating your source tree and rebuilding and installing a new version of ...
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 NetBSD Security Advisory 2006-014 ================================= Topic: An audio subsystem race condition may crash the system Version: NetBSD-current: source prior to April 19, 2006 NetBSD 3.0: source prior to April 19, 2006 NetBSD 2.1: not affected NetBSD 2.0.*: not affected NetBSD 2.0: not affected NetBSD 1.6.*: not affected NetBSD 1.6: not affected Severity: Any local user can crash the system Fixed: NetBSD-current: April 19, 2006 NetBSD-3-0 branch: April 19, 2006 (3.0.1 will include the fix) NetBSD-3 branch: April 19, 2006 Abstract ======== A system crash can occur if a user changes the sample rate of an audio device during playback. Technical Details ================= If the filter list is modified while audio_write() is running, a kernel crash may occur. While the function is reading data from userland, it does not check to see if the filter has been changed (via audiosetinfo ioctl). The audio_write() function reads data from userland in a loop, runs any required filters (eg. rate conversion, changing encoding, etc) and passes the data along to a circular audio buffer. The function neglected to properly lock against the audiosetinfo() function. Since this bug was introduced with the new audio filter framework in NetBSD 3.0, prior releases are unaffected. Solutions and Workarounds ========================= For all NetBSD versions, you need to obtain fixed kernel sources, rebuild and install the new kernel, and reboot the system. The fixed source may be obtained from the NetBSD CVS repository. The following instructions briefly summarise how to upgrade your kernel. In these instructions, replace: ARCH with your architecture (from uname -m), and KERNCONF with the name of your kernel configuration file. To update from CVS, re-build, and re-install the kernel: # cd src # cvs update -d -P sys/dev/audio.c ...
