New multilib glibc packages. - security fix from Alien.


I've just saw on Alien's Pasture:

http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/new-...cal-root-hole/

Packages are ready for Slackware-current. For slackware 13.0 and 13.1 packages will be available soon.

Thx Eric

I saw that too. The updated glibc packages for the "normal" installations are available from your standard mirrors. I don't know why a message hasn't hit the security list just yet. I updated my 32bit box, but am waiting for the new multilib packages before upgrading my 64bit box.

Anyone know if you should reboot after upgrading glibc? I did on my 32bit box because I was too impatient to wait for an answer

Thanks for the info.
Is there any specific steps or order to follow to update the packages?

Last time I messed around with these packages, I managed to corrupt the system (my fault surely but still the result is the same)

I'm going to drop out of X, and go to runlevel 1 ("init 1") before upgrading.
May or may not be necessary in this case, but should be safest.

...and then I rebooted for good measure. All seems well.

went to init 1, used upgradepkg -- reinstall and rebooted and everything seems to still be working

Thanks Alien/Eric for the packages

Updated glibc packages for multilib Slackware64 releases 13.0 and 13.1 are now also available (http://slackware.com/~alien/multilib/ or http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/pe...lien/multilib/).
You can again relaxen und watchen das blinkenlighten.

If I understood well the new Tavis Ormandy bulletin, looks like there's no peace

http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2010/Oct/344

let's hope next week won't be another one. (btw, tnx Tavis!)

just noticed now that Tavis point to this upstream patch that addresses the bug above in Twitter
