Linux Weekly News

Kernel prepatch 3.19-rc1
Linus has sent out 3.19-rc1 and closed the merge window for this release one day earlier than some might have expected. "Considering how much came in fairly late, I find it hard to care about anybody who had decided to cut it even closer than some people already did. That said, maybe there aren't any real stragglers - and judging by the size of rc1, there really can't have been much." In the end, 11,408 non-merge changesets were pulled into the mainline during this development cycle.
Tagged memory and minion cores in the lowRISC SoC
The lowRISC project, which aims to create and manufacture a fully open-source system-on-chip (SoC) and development board, has released a document on its plans to incorporate tagged memory and minion cores into the SoC. Minion cores are separate I/O processors that can be used to implement various I/O protocols without requiring additional hardware in the design.
"Tagged memory associates metadata with each memory location and can be used to implement fine-grained memory access restrictions. Attacks which hijack control flow can be prevented by using this protection to restrict writes to memory locations containing return addresses, function pointers, and vtable pointers. Importantly, we anticipate this can be implemented with a worst- case performance overhead of a few percent and a similarly low area cost. This fine- grained memory protection can be used automatically by the compiler, meaning improved security is available to existing programs without source code modifications. We intend to provide tagged memory alongside security features which are already commonly deployed such as secure boot, encrypted off-chip memory, and cryptographic accelerators."
EU to fund Free Software code review (FSFE)
The Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) has commented on the most recent European Union (EU) budget—approved on December 17—that includes €1 million for auditing free-software programs that are used by the EU governmental bodies. The auditing is meant to find and fix security holes in those programs. "Even though these institutions are tightly locked into non-free file formats, much of their infrastructure is based on Free Software.
'This is a very welcome decision,' says FSFE's president Karsten Gerloff. 'Like most public bodies, the European institutions rely heavily on Free Software for their daily operations. It is good to see that the Parliament and the Commission will invest at least a little in improving the quality and the programs they use.'"
Friday's security advisories
CentOS has updated glibc (C7: code execution), jasper (C7; C6: three code execution flaws), and kernel (C7: privilege escalation).
Gentoo has updated znc (two denial of service flaws, one from 2013).
Oracle has updated glibc (OL7: three vulnerabilities), jasper (OL7; OL6: three code execution flaws), and kernel (OL7; OL5; OL5: privilege escalation).
Red Hat has updated glibc (RHEL7: code execution) and jasper (RHEL6&7: three code execution flaws).
Scientific Linux has updated jasper (SL6&7: three code execution flaws).
Ubuntu has updated kernel (14.04: regression in previous security fix) and kernel (14.10: regression in previous security fix).
Git v2.2.1 (security release) available
There is a new version of the Git client out with an important security fix: with vulnerable versions of the Git client on a case insensitive filesystem, it is possible for a pull from a repository to overwrite the .git directory and cause the execution of arbitrary commands. Linux systems running normal filesystems are not affected by this problem, but Windows and Mac OS systems are.
