  • glibc-2.31.9000   Open master branch for 2.32 development
  • glibc-2.31   The GNU C Library ================= The GNU C Library version 2.31 is now available. The GNU C Library is used as *the* C library in the GNU system and in GNU/Linux systems, as well as many other systems that use Linux as the kernel. The GNU C Library is primarily designed to be a portable and high performance C library. It follows all relevant standards including ISO C11 and POSIX.1-2017. It is also internationalized and has one of the most complete internationalization interfaces known. The GNU C Library webpage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/ Packages for the 2.31 release may be downloaded from: http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/libc/ http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libc/ The mirror list is at http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html NEWS for version 2.31 ===================== Major new features: * The GNU C Library now supports a feature test macro _ISOC2X_SOURCE to enable features from the draft ISO C2X standard. Only some features from this draft standard are supported by the GNU C Library, and as the draft is under active development, the set of features enabled by this macro is liable to change. Features from C2X are also enabled by _GNU_SOURCE, or by compiling with "gcc -std=gnu2x". * The <math.h> functions that round their results to a narrower type now have corresponding type-generic macros in <tgmath.h>, as defined in TS 18661-1:2014 and TS 18661-3:2015 as amended by the resolution of Clarification Request 13 to TS 18661-3. * The function pthread_clockjoin_np has been added, enabling join with a terminated thread with a specific clock. It allows waiting against CLOCK_MONOTONIC and CLOCK_REALTIME. This function is a GNU extension. * New locale added: mnw_MM (Mon language spoken in Myanmar). * The DNS stub resolver will optionally send the AD (authenticated data) bit in queries if the trust-ad option is set via the options directive in /etc/resolv.conf (or if RES_TRUSTAD is set in _res.options). In this mode, the AD bit, as provided by the name server, is available to applications which call res_search and related functions. In the default mode, the AD bit is not set in queries, and it is automatically cleared in responses, indicating a lack of DNSSEC validation. (Therefore, the name servers and the network path to them are treated as untrusted.) Deprecated and removed features, and other changes affecting compatibility: * The totalorder and totalordermag functions, and the corresponding functions for other floating-point types, now take pointer arguments to avoid signaling NaNs possibly being converted to quiet NaNs in argument passing. This is in accordance with the resolution of Clarification Request 25 to TS 18661-1, as applied for C2X. Existing binaries that pass floating-point arguments directly will continue to work. * The obsolete function stime is no longer available to newly linked binaries, and its declaration has been removed from <time.h>. Programs that set the system time should use clock_settime instead. * We plan to remove the obsolete function ftime, and the header <sys/timeb.h>, in a future version of glibc. In this release, the header still exists but calling ftime will cause a compiler warning. All programs should use gettimeofday or clock_gettime instead. * The gettimeofday function no longer reports information about a system-wide time zone. This 4.2-BSD-era feature has been deprecated for many years, as it cannot handle the full complexity of the world's timezones, but hitherto we have supported it on a best-effort basis. Changes required to support 64-bit time_t on 32-bit architectures have made this no longer practical. As of this release, callers of gettimeofday with a non-null 'tzp' argument should expect to receive a 'struct timezone' whose tz_minuteswest and tz_dsttime fields are zero. (For efficiency reasons, this does not always happen on a few Linux-based ports. This will be corrected in a future release.) All callers should supply a null pointer for the 'tzp' argument to gettimeofday. For accurate information about the time zone associated with the current time, use the localtime function. gettimeofday itself is obsolescent according to POSIX. We have no plans to remove access to this function, but portable programs should consider using clock_gettime instead. * The settimeofday function can still be used to set a system-wide time zone when the operating system supports it. This is because the Linux kernel reused the API, on some architectures, to describe a system-wide time-zone-like offset between the software clock maintained by the kernel, and the "RTC" clock that keeps time when the system is shut down. However, to reduce the odds of this offset being set by accident, settimeofday can no longer be used to set the time and the offset simultaneously. If both of its two arguments are non-null, the call will fail (setting errno to EINVAL). Callers attempting to set this offset should also be prepared for the call to fail and set errno to ENOSYS; this already happens on the Hurd and on some Linux architectures. The Linux kernel maintainers are discussing a more principled replacement for the reused API. After a replacement becomes available, we will change settimeofday to fail with ENOSYS on all platforms when its 'tzp' argument is not a null pointer. settimeofday itself is obsolescent according to POSIX. Programs that set the system time should use clock_settime and/or the adjtime family of functions instead. We may cease to make settimeofday available to newly linked binaries after there is a replacement for Linux's time-zone-like offset API. * SPARC ISA v7 is no longer supported. v8 is still supported, but only if the optional CAS instruction is implemented (for instance, LEON processors are still supported, but SuperSPARC processors are not). As the oldest 64-bit SPARC ISA is v9, this only affects 32-bit configurations. * If a lazy binding failure happens during dlopen, during the execution of an ELF constructor, the process is now terminated. Previously, the dynamic loader would return NULL from dlopen, with the lazy binding error captured in a dlerror message. In general, this is unsafe because resetting the stack in an arbitrary function call is not possible. * For MIPS hard-float ABIs, the GNU C Library will be configured to need an executable stack unless explicitly configured at build time to require minimum kernel version 4.8 or newer. This is because executing floating-point branches on a non-executable stack on Linux kernels prior to 4.8 can lead to application crashes for some MIPS configurations. While currently PT_GNU_STACK is not widely used on MIPS, future releases of GCC are expected to enable non-executable stack by default with PT_GNU_STACK by default and is thus likely to trigger a crash on older kernels. The GNU C Library can be built with --enable-kernel=4.8.0 in order to keep a non-executable stack while dropping support for older kernels. * System call wrappers for time system calls now use the new time64 system calls when available. On 32-bit targets, these wrappers attempt to call the new system calls first and fall back to the older 32-bit time system calls if they are not present. This may cause issues in environments that cannot handle unsupported system calls gracefully by returning -ENOSYS. Seccomp sandboxes are affected by this issue. Changes to build and runtime requirements: * It is no longer necessary to have recent Linux kernel headers to build working (non-stub) system call wrappers on all architectures except 64-bit RISC-V. 64-bit RISC-V requires a minimum kernel headers version of 5.0. * The ChangeLog file is no longer present in the toplevel directory of the source tree. ChangeLog files are located in the ChangeLog.old directory as ChangeLog.N where the highest N has the latest entries. Security related changes: CVE-2019-19126: ld.so failed to ignore the LD_PREFER_MAP_32BIT_EXEC environment variable during program execution after a security transition, allowing local attackers to restrict the possible mapping addresses for loaded libraries and thus bypass ASLR for a setuid program.

  • glibc-2.30   The GNU C Library ================= The GNU C Library version 2.30 is now available. The GNU C Library is used as *the* C library in the GNU system and in GNU/Linux systems, as well as many other systems that use Linux as the kernel. The GNU C Library is primarily designed to be a portable and high performance C library. It follows all relevant standards including ISO C11 and POSIX.1-2017. It is also internationalized and has one of the most complete internationalization interfaces known. The GNU C Library webpage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/ Packages for the 2.30 release may be downloaded from: http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/libc/ http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libc/ The mirror list is at http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html NEWS for version 2.30 ===================== Major new features: * Unicode 12.1.0 Support: Character encoding, character type info, and transliteration tables are all updated to Unicode 12.1.0, using generator scripts contributed by Mike FABIAN (Red Hat). * The dynamic linker accepts the --preload argument to preload shared objects, in addition to the LD_PRELOAD environment variable. * The twalk_r function has been added. It is similar to the existing twalk function, but it passes an additional caller-supplied argument to the callback function. * On Linux, the getdents64, gettid, and tgkill functions have been added. * Minguo (Republic of China) calendar support has been added as an alternative calendar for the following locales: zh_TW, cmn_TW, hak_TW, nan_TW, lzh_TW. * The entry for the new Japanese era has been added for ja_JP locale. * Memory allocation functions malloc, calloc, realloc, reallocarray, valloc, pvalloc, memalign, and posix_memalign fail now with total object size larger than PTRDIFF_MAX. This is to avoid potential undefined behavior with pointer subtraction within the allocated object, where results might overflow the ptrdiff_t type. * The dynamic linker no longer refuses to load objects which reference versioned symbols whose implementation has moved to a different soname since the object has been linked. The old error message, symbol FUNCTION-NAME, version SYMBOL-VERSION not defined in file DSO-NAME with link time reference, is gone. * Add new POSIX-proposed pthread_cond_clockwait, pthread_mutex_clocklock, pthread_rwlock_clockrdlock, pthread_rwlock_clockwrlock and sem_clockwait functions. These behave similarly to their "timed" equivalents, but also accept a clockid_t parameter to determine which clock their timeout should be measured against. All functions allow waiting against CLOCK_MONOTONIC and CLOCK_REALTIME. The decision of which clock to be used is made at the time of the wait (unlike with pthread_condattr_setclock, which requires the clock choice at initialization time). * On AArch64 the GNU IFUNC resolver call ABI changed: old resolvers still work, new resolvers can use a second argument which can be extended in the future, currently it contains the AT_HWCAP2 value. Deprecated and removed features, and other changes affecting compatibility: * The copy_file_range function fails with ENOSYS if the kernel does not support the system call of the same name. Previously, user space emulation was performed, but its behavior did not match the kernel behavior, which was deemed too confusing. Applications which use the copy_file_range function can no longer rely on glibc to provide a fallback on kernels that do not support the copy_file_range system call, and if this function returns ENOSYS, they will need to use their own fallback. Support for copy_file_range for most architectures was added in version 4.5 of the mainline Linux kernel. * The functions clock_gettime, clock_getres, clock_settime, clock_getcpuclockid, clock_nanosleep were removed from the librt library for new applications (on architectures which had them). Instead, the definitions in libc will be used automatically, which have been available since glibc 2.17. * The obsolete and never-implemented XSI STREAMS header files <stropts.h> and <sys/stropts.h> have been removed. * Support for the "inet6" option in /etc/resolv.conf and the RES_USE_INET6 resolver flag (deprecated in glibc 2.25) have been removed. * The obsolete RES_INSECURE1 and RES_INSECURE2 option flags for the DNS stub resolver have been removed from <resolv.h>. * With --enable-bind-now, installed programs are now linked with the BIND_NOW flag. * Support for the PowerPC SPE ISA extension (powerpc-*-*gnuspe* configurations) has been removed, following the deprecation of this subarchitecture in version 8 of GCC, and its removal in version 9. * On 32-bit Arm, support for the port-based I/O emulation and the <sys/io.h> header have been removed. * The Linux-specific <sys/sysctl.h> header and the sysctl function have been deprecated and will be removed from a future version of glibc. Application should directly access /proc instead. For obtaining random bits, the getentropy function can be used. Changes to build and runtime requirements: * GCC 6.2 or later is required to build the GNU C Library. Older GCC versions and non-GNU compilers are still supported when compiling programs that use the GNU C Library. Security related changes: CVE-2019-7309: x86-64 memcmp used signed Jcc instructions to check size. For x86-64, memcmp on an object size larger than SSIZE_MAX has undefined behavior. On x32, the size_t argument may be passed in the lower 32 bits of the 64-bit RDX register with non-zero upper 32 bits. When it happened with the sign bit of RDX register set, memcmp gave the wrong result since it treated the size argument as zero. Reported by H.J. Lu. CVE-2019-9169: Attempted case-insensitive regular-expression match via proceed_next_node in posix/regexec.c leads to heap-based buffer over-read. Reported by Hongxu Chen.

  • glibc-2.29.9000   Open master branch for glibc 2.30 development
  • glibc-2.29   The GNU C Library ================= The GNU C Library version 2.29 is now available. The GNU C Library is used as *the* C library in the GNU system and in GNU/Linux systems, as well as many other systems that use Linux as the kernel. The GNU C Library is primarily designed to be a portable and high performance C library. It follows all relevant standards including ISO C11 and POSIX.1-2008. It is also internationalized and has one of the most complete internationalization interfaces known. The GNU C Library webpage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/ Packages for the 2.29 release may be downloaded from: http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/libc/ http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libc/ The mirror list is at http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html NEWS for version 2.29 ==================== * The getcpu wrapper function has been added, which returns the currently used CPU and NUMA node. This function is Linux-specific. * A new convenience target has been added for distribution maintainers to build and install all locales as directories with files. The new target is run by issuing the following command in your build tree: 'make localedata/install-locale-files', with an optional DESTDIR to set the install root if you wish to install into a non-default configured location. * Optimized generic exp, exp2, log, log2, pow, sinf, cosf, sincosf and tanf. * The reallocarray function is now declared under _DEFAULT_SOURCE, not just for _GNU_SOURCE, to match BSD environments. * For powercp64le ABI, Transactional Lock Elision is now enabled iff kernel indicates that it will abort the transaction prior to entering the kernel (PPC_FEATURE2_HTM_NOSC on hwcap2). On older kernels the transaction is suspended, and this caused some undefined side-effects issues by aborting transactions manually. Glibc avoided it by abort transactions manually on each syscall, but it lead to performance issues on newer kernels where the HTM state is saved and restore lazily (the state being saved even when the process actually does not use HTM). * The functions posix_spawn_file_actions_addchdir_np and posix_spawn_file_actions_addfchdir_np have been added, enabling posix_spawn and posix_spawnp to run the new process in a different directory. These functions are GNU extensions. The function posix_spawn_file_actions_addchdir_np is similar to the Solaris function of the same name. * The popen and system do not run atfork handlers anymore (BZ#17490). Although it is a possible POSIX violation, the POSIX rationale in pthread_atfork documentation regarding atfork handlers is to handle inconsistent mutex state after a fork call in a multi-threaded process. In both popen and system there is no direct access to user-defined mutexes. * Support for the C-SKY ABIV2 running on Linux has been added. This port requires at least binutils-2.32, gcc-9.0, and linux-4.20. Two ABIs are supported: - C-SKY ABIV2 soft-float little-endian - C-SKY ABIV2 hard-float little-endian * strftime's default formatting of a locale's alternative year (%Ey) has been changed to zero-pad the year to a minimum of two digits, like "%y". This improves the display of Japanese era years during the first nine years of a new era, and is expected to be harmless for all other locales (only Japanese locales regularly have alternative year numbers less than 10). Zero-padding can be overridden with the '_' or '-' flags (which are GNU extensions). * As a GNU extension, the '_' and '-' flags can now be applied to "%EY" to control how the year number is formatted; they have the same effect that they would on "%Ey". Deprecated and removed features, and other changes affecting compatibility: * The glibc.tune tunable namespace has been renamed to glibc.cpu and the tunable glibc.tune.cpu has been renamed to glibc.cpu.name. * The type of the pr_uid and pr_gid members of struct elf_prpsinfo, defined in <sys/procfs.h>, has been corrected to match the type actually used by the Linux kernel. This affects the size and layout of that structure on MicroBlaze, MIPS (n64 ABI only), Nios II and RISC-V. * For the MIPS n32 ABI, the type of the pr_sigpend and pr_sighold members of struct elf_prstatus, and the pr_flag member of struct elf_prpsinfo, defined in <sys/procfs.h>, has been corrected to match the type actually used by the Linux kernel. This affects the size and layout of those structures. * An archaic GNU extension to scanf, under which '%as', '%aS', and '%a[...]' meant to scan a string and allocate space for it with malloc, is now restricted to programs compiled in C89 or C++98 mode with _GNU_SOURCE defined. This extension conflicts with C99's use of '%a' to scan a hexadecimal floating-point number, which is now available to programs compiled as C99 or C++11 or higher, regardless of _GNU_SOURCE. POSIX.1-2008 includes the feature of allocating a buffer for string input with malloc, using the modifier letter 'm' instead. Programs using '%as', '%aS', or '%a[...]' with the old GNU meaning should change to '%ms', '%mS', or '%m[...]' respectively. Programs that wish to use the C99 '%a' no longer need to avoid _GNU_SOURCE. GCC's -Wformat warnings can detect most uses of this extension, as long as all functions that call vscanf, vfscanf, or vsscanf are annotated with __attribute__ ((format (scanf, ...))). Changes to build and runtime requirements: * Python 3.4 or later is required to build the GNU C Library. * On most architectures, GCC 5 or later is required to build the GNU C Library. (On powerpc64le, GCC 6.2 or later is still required, as before.) Older GCC versions and non-GNU compilers are still supported when compiling programs that use the GNU C Library. Security related changes: CVE-2018-19591: A file descriptor leak in if_nametoindex can lead to a denial of service due to resource exhaustion when processing getaddrinfo calls with crafted host names. Reported by Guido Vranken. CVE-2019-6488: On x32, the size_t parameter may be passed in the lower 32 bits of a 64-bit register with with non-zero upper 32 bit. When it happened, accessing the 32-bit size_t value as the full 64-bit register in the assembly string/memory functions would cause a buffer overflow. Reported by H.J. Lu. CVE-2016-10739: The getaddrinfo function could successfully parse IPv4 addresses with arbitrary trailing characters, potentially leading to data or command injection issues in applications.

  • glibc-2.28.9000   Open master branch for glibc 2.29 development
  • glibc-2.28   The GNU C Library ================= The GNU C Library version 2.28 is now available. The GNU C Library is used as *the* C library in the GNU system and in GNU/Linux systems, as well as many other systems that use Linux as the kernel. The GNU C Library is primarily designed to be a portable and high performance C library. It follows all relevant standards including ISO C11 and POSIX.1-2008. It is also internationalized and has one of the most complete internationalization interfaces known. The GNU C Library webpage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/ Packages for the 2.28 release may be downloaded from: http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/libc/ http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libc/ The mirror list is at http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html NEWS for version 2.28 ===================== Major new features: * The localization data for ISO 14651 is updated to match the 2016 Edition 4 release of the standard, this matches data provided by Unicode 9.0.0. This update introduces significant improvements to the collation of Unicode characters. This release deviates slightly from the standard in that the collation element ordering for lowercase and uppercase LATIN script characters is adjusted to ensure that regular expressions with ranges like [a-z] and [A-Z] don't interleave e.g. A is not matched by [a-z]. With the update many locales have been updated to take advantage of the new collation information. The new collation information has increased the size of the compiled locale archive or binary locales. * The GNU C Library can now be compiled with support for Intel CET, AKA Intel Control-flow Enforcement Technology. When the library is built with --enable-cet, the resulting glibc is protected with indirect branch tracking (IBT) and shadow stack (SHSTK). CET-enabled glibc is compatible with all existing executables and shared libraries. This feature is currently supported on i386, x86_64 and x32 with GCC 8 and binutils 2.29 or later. Note that CET-enabled glibc requires CPUs capable of multi-byte NOPs, like x86-64 processors as well as Intel Pentium Pro or newer. NOTE: --enable-cet has been tested for i686, x86_64 and x32 on non-CET processors. --enable-cet has been tested for x86_64 and x32 on CET SDVs, but Intel CET support hasn't been validated for i686. * The GNU C Library now has correct support for ABSOLUTE symbols (SHN_ABS-relative symbols). Previously such ABSOLUTE symbols were relocated incorrectly or in some cases discarded. The GNU linker can make use of the newer semantics, but it must communicate it to the dynamic loader by setting the ELF file's identification (EI_ABIVERSION field) to indicate such support is required. * Unicode 11.0.0 Support: Character encoding, character type info, and transliteration tables are all updated to Unicode 11.0.0, using generator scripts contributed by Mike FABIAN (Red Hat). * <math.h> functions that round their results to a narrower type are added from TS 18661-1:2014 and TS 18661-3:2015: - fadd, faddl, daddl and corresponding fMaddfN, fMaddfNx, fMxaddfN and fMxaddfNx functions. - fsub, fsubl, dsubl and corresponding fMsubfN, fMsubfNx, fMxsubfN and fMxsubfNx functions. - fmul, fmull, dmull and corresponding fMmulfN, fMmulfNx, fMxmulfN and fMxmulfNx functions. - fdiv, fdivl, ddivl and corresponding fMdivfN, fMdivfNx, fMxdivfN and fMxdivfNx functions. * Two grammatical forms of month names are now supported for the following languages: Armenian, Asturian, Catalan, Czech, Kashubian, Occitan, Ossetian, Scottish Gaelic, Upper Sorbian, and Walloon. The following languages now support two grammatical forms in abbreviated month names: Catalan, Greek, and Kashubian. * Newly added locales: Lower Sorbian (dsb_DE) and Yakut (sah_RU) also include the support for two grammatical forms of month names. * Building and running on GNU/Hurd systems now works without out-of-tree patches. * The renameat2 function has been added, a variant of the renameat function which has a flags argument. If the flags are zero, the renameat2 function acts like renameat. If the flag is not zero and there is no kernel support for renameat2, the function will fail with an errno value of EINVAL. This is different from the existing gnulib function renameatu, which performs a plain rename operation in case of a RENAME_NOREPLACE flags and a non-existing destination (and therefore has a race condition that can clobber the destination inadvertently). * The statx function has been added, a variant of the fstatat64 function with an additional flags argument. If there is no direct kernel support for statx, glibc provides basic stat support based on the fstatat64 function. * IDN domain names in getaddrinfo and getnameinfo now use the system libidn2 library if installed. libidn2 version 2.0.5 or later is recommended. If libidn2 is not available, internationalized domain names are not encoded or decoded even if the AI_IDN or NI_IDN flags are passed to getaddrinfo or getnameinfo. (getaddrinfo calls with non-ASCII names and AI_IDN will fail with an encoding error.) Flags which used to change the IDN encoding and decoding behavior (AI_IDN_ALLOW_UNASSIGNED, AI_IDN_USE_STD3_ASCII_RULES, NI_IDN_ALLOW_UNASSIGNED, NI_IDN_USE_STD3_ASCII_RULES) have been deprecated. They no longer have any effect. * Parsing of dynamic string tokens in DT_RPATH, DT_RUNPATH, DT_NEEDED, DT_AUXILIARY, and DT_FILTER has been expanded to support the full range of ELF gABI expressions including such constructs as '$ORIGIN$ORIGIN' (if valid). For SUID/GUID applications the rules have been further restricted, and where in the past a dynamic string token sequence may have been interpreted as a literal string it will now cause a load failure. These load failures were always considered unspecified behaviour from the perspective of the dynamic loader, and for safety are now load errors e.g. /foo/${ORIGIN}.so in DT_NEEDED results in a load failure now. * Support for ISO C threads (ISO/IEC 9899:2011) has been added. The implementation includes all the standard functions provided by <threads.h>: - thrd_current, thrd_equal, thrd_sleep, thrd_yield, thrd_create, thrd_detach, thrd_exit, and thrd_join for thread management. - mtx_init, mtx_lock, mtx_timedlock, mtx_trylock, mtx_unlock, and mtx_destroy for mutual exclusion. - call_once for function call synchronization. - cnd_broadcast, cnd_destroy, cnd_init, cnd_signal, cnd_timedwait, and cnd_wait for conditional variables. - tss_create, tss_delete, tss_get, and tss_set for thread-local storage. Application developers must link against libpthread to use ISO C threads. Deprecated and removed features, and other changes affecting compatibility: * The nonstandard header files <libio.h> and <_G_config.h> are no longer installed. Software that was using either header should be updated to use standard <stdio.h> interfaces instead. * The stdio functions 'getc' and 'putc' are no longer defined as macros. This was never required by the C standard, and the macros just expanded to call alternative names for the same functions. If you hoped getc and putc would provide performance improvements over fgetc and fputc, instead investigate using (f)getc_unlocked and (f)putc_unlocked, and, if necessary, flockfile and funlockfile. * All stdio functions now treat end-of-file as a sticky condition. If you read from a file until EOF, and then the file is enlarged by another process, you must call clearerr or another function with the same effect (e.g. fseek, rewind) before you can read the additional data. This corrects a longstanding C99 conformance bug. It is most likely to affect programs that use stdio to read interactive input from a terminal. (Bug #1190.) * The macros 'major', 'minor', and 'makedev' are now only available from the header <sys/sysmacros.h>; not from <sys/types.h> or various other headers that happen to include <sys/types.h>. These macros are rarely used, not part of POSIX nor XSI, and their names frequently collide with user code; see https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=19239 for further explanation. <sys/sysmacros.h> is a GNU extension. Portable programs that require these macros should first include <sys/types.h>, and then include <sys/sysmacros.h> if __GNU_LIBRARY__ is defined. * The tilegx*-*-linux-gnu configurations are no longer supported. * The obsolete function ustat is no longer available to newly linked binaries; the headers <ustat.h> and <sys/ustat.h> have been removed. This function has been deprecated in favor of fstatfs and statfs. * The obsolete function nfsservctl is no longer available to newly linked binaries. This function was specific to systems using the Linux kernel and could not usefully be used with the GNU C Library on systems with version 3.1 or later of the Linux kernel. * The obsolete function name llseek is no longer available to newly linked binaries. This function was specific to systems using the Linux kernel and was not declared in a header. Programs should use the lseek64 name for this function instead. * The AI_IDN_ALLOW_UNASSIGNED and NI_IDN_ALLOW_UNASSIGNED flags for the getaddrinfo and getnameinfo functions have been deprecated. The behavior previously selected by them is now always enabled. * The AI_IDN_USE_STD3_ASCII_RULES and NI_IDN_USE_STD3_ASCII_RULES flags for the getaddrinfo and getnameinfo functions have been deprecated. The STD3 restriction (rejecting '_' in host names, among other things) has been removed, for increased compatibility with non-IDN name resolution. * The fcntl function now have a Long File Support variant named fcntl64. It is added to fix some Linux Open File Description (OFD) locks usage on non LFS mode. As for others *64 functions, fcntl64 semantics are analogous with fcntl and LFS support is handled transparently. Also for Linux, the OFD locks act as a cancellation entrypoint. * The obsolete functions encrypt, encrypt_r, setkey, setkey_r, cbc_crypt, ecb_crypt, and des_setparity are no longer available to newly linked binaries, and the headers <rpc/des_crypt.h> and <rpc/rpc_des.h> are no longer installed. These functions encrypted and decrypted data with the DES block cipher, which is no longer considered secure. Software that still uses these functions should switch to a modern cryptography library, such as libgcrypt. * Reflecting the removal of the encrypt and setkey functions above, the macro _XOPEN_CRYPT is no longer defined. As a consequence, the crypt function is no longer declared unless _DEFAULT_SOURCE or _GNU_SOURCE is enabled. * The obsolete function fcrypt is no longer available to newly linked binaries. It was just another name for the standard function crypt, and it has not appeared in any header file in many years. * We have tentative plans to hand off maintenance of the passphrase-hashing library, libcrypt, to a separate development project that will, we hope, keep up better with new passphrase-hashing algorithms. We will continue to declare 'crypt' in <unistd.h>, and programs that use 'crypt' or 'crypt_r' should not need to change at all; however, distributions will need to install <crypt.h> and libcrypt from a separate project. In this release, if the configure option --disable-crypt is used, glibc will not install <crypt.h> or libcrypt, making room for the separate project's versions of these files. The plan is to make this the default behavior in a future release. Changes to build and runtime requirements: GNU make 4.0 or later is now required to build glibc. Security related changes: CVE-2016-6261, CVE-2016-6263, CVE-2017-14062: Various vulnerabilities have been fixed by removing the glibc-internal IDNA implementation and using the system-provided libidn2 library instead. Originally reported by Hanno Böck and Christian Weisgerber. CVE-2017-18269: An SSE2-based memmove implementation for the i386 architecture could corrupt memory. Reported by Max Horn. CVE-2018-11236: Very long pathname arguments to realpath function could result in an integer overflow and buffer overflow. Reported by Alexey Izbyshev. CVE-2018-11237: The mempcpy implementation for the Intel Xeon Phi architecture could write beyond the target buffer, resulting in a buffer overflow. Reported by Andreas Schwab.

The GNU C Library is used as *the* C library in the GNU system and in GNU/Linux systems, as well as many other systems that use Linux as the kernel. The GNU C Library is primarily designed to be a portable and high performance C library. It follows all relevant standards including ISO C11 and POSIX.1-2008.

These static PIE executables are like static executables but can be loaded at any address and provide additional security hardening benefits at the cost of some memory and performance. When the library is built with --enable-static-pie the resulting libc.a is usable with GCC 8 and above to create static PIE executables using the GCC option '-static-pie'. This feature is currently supported on i386, x86_64 and x32 with binutils 2.29 or later, and on aarch64 with binutils 2.30 or later. * Optimized x86-64 asin, atan2, exp, expf, log, pow, atan, sin, cosf, sinf, sincosf and tan with FMA, contributed by Arjan van de Ven and H.J. Lu from Intel. * Optimized x86-64 trunc and truncf for processors with SSE4.1. * Optimized generic expf, exp2f, logf, log2f, powf, sinf, cosf and sincosf. * In order to support faster and safer process termination the malloc API family of functions will no longer print a failure address and stack backtrace after detecting heap corruption. The goal is to minimize the amount of work done after corruption is detected and to avoid potential security issues in continued process execution. Reducing shutdown time leads to lower overall process restart latency, so there is benefit both from a security and performance perspective. * The abort function terminates the process immediately, without flushing stdio streams. Previous glibc versions used to flush streams, resulting in deadlocks and further data corruption. This change also affects process aborts as the result of assertion failures. * On platforms where long double has the IEEE binary128 format (aarch64, alpha, mips64, riscv, s390 and sparc), the math library now implements _Float128 interfaces for that type, as defined by ISO/IEC TS 18661-3:2015. These are the same interfaces added in version 2.26 for some platforms where this format is supported but is not the format of long double. * On platforms with support for _Float64x (aarch64, alpha, i386, ia64, mips64, powerpc64le, riscv, s390, sparc and x86_64), the math library now implements interfaces for that type, as defined by ISO/IEC TS 18661-3:2015. These are corresponding interfaces to those supported for _Float128. * The math library now implements interfaces for the _Float32, _Float64 and _Float32x types, as defined by ISO/IEC TS 18661-3:2015. These are corresponding interfaces to those supported for _Float128. * glibc now implements the memfd_create and mlock2 functions on Linux. * Support for memory protection keys was added. The <sys/mman.h> header now declares the functions pkey_alloc, pkey_free, pkey_mprotect, pkey_set, pkey_get. * The copy_file_range function was added. * Optimized memcpy, mempcpy, memmove, and memset for sparc M7. * The ldconfig utility now processes `include' directives using the C/POSIX collation ordering. Previous glibc versions used locale-specific ordering, the change might break systems that relied on that. * Support for two grammatical forms of month names has been added. In a call to strftime, the "%B" and "%b" format specifiers will now produce the grammatical form required when the month is used as part of a complete date. New "%OB" and "%Ob" specifiers produce the form required when the month is named by itself. For instance, in Greek and in many Slavic and Baltic languages, "%B" will produce the month in genitive case, and "%OB" will produce the month in nominative case. In a call to strptime, "%B", "%b", "%h", "%OB", "%Ob", and "%Oh" are all valid and will all accept any known form of month name---standalone or complete, abbreviated or full. In a call to nl_langinfo, the query constants MON_1..12 and ABMON_1..12 return the strings used by "%B" and "%b", respectively. New query constants ALTMON_1..12 and _NL_ABALTMON_1..12 return the strings used by "%OB" and "%Ob", respectively. In a locale definition file, use "alt_mon" and "ab_alt_mon" to define the strings for %OB and %Ob, respectively; these have the same syntax as "mon" and "abmon". These arrays are optional; if they are not provided then they have the same content as "mon" and "abmon", respectively. These features are provided for locales which define "alt_mon" and/or "ab_alt_mon" in their locale source data. This release includes such alternative month name data for the following languages: Belarusian, Croatian, Greek, Lithuanian, Polish, Russian, and Ukrainian. This feature is currently a GNU extension, but it is expected to be added to the next revision of POSIX, and it is also already available on some BSD-derived operating systems. This feature will cause existing statically compiled applications to fail to load locales and fall back to the builtin C/POSIX locales. See notes below for other changes affecting compatibility. * Support for the RISC-V ISA running on Linux has been added. This port requires at least binutils-2.30, gcc-7.3.0, and linux-4.15; and is supported for the following ISA and ABI pairs: - rv64imac lp64 - rv64imafdc lp64 - rv64imafdc lp64d Deprecated and removed features, and other changes affecting compatibility: * Statically compiled applications attempting to load locales compiled for the GNU C Library version 2.27 will fail and fall back to the builtin C/POSIX locale. The reason for this is that the addition of the new "%OB" and "%Ob", support for two grammatical forms of the month names, also extends the locale data binary format. Static applications needing locale support must be recompiled to match the runtime and data they are deployed with. In some distributions there is an upgrade window where dynamically linked applications may use a new library but the old locale data and also fall back to the builtin C/POSIX locales; restarting the application process is sufficient to fix this. * Support for statically linked applications which call dlopen is deprecated and will be removed in a future version of glibc. Applications which call dlopen need to be linked dynamically instead. * Support for old programs which use internal stdio data structures and functions is deprecated. This includes programs which use the C++ streams provided by libstdc++ in GCC 2.95. Programs which use the internal symbols _IO_adjust_wcolumn, _IO_default_doallocate, _IO_default_finish, _IO_default_pbackfail, _IO_default_uflow, _IO_default_xsgetn, _IO_default_xsputn, _IO_doallocbuf, _IO_do_write, _IO_file_attach, _IO_file_close, _IO_file_close_it, _IO_file_doallocate, _IO_file_fopen, _IO_file_init, _IO_file_jumps, _IO_fileno, _IO_file_open, _IO_file_overflow, _IO_file_read, _IO_file_seek, _IO_file_seekoff, _IO_file_setbuf, _IO_file_stat, _IO_file_sync, _IO_file_underflow, _IO_file_write, _IO_file_xsputn, _IO_flockfile, _IO_flush_all, _IO_flush_all_linebuffered, _IO_free_backup_area, _IO_free_wbackup_area, _IO_init, _IO_init_marker, _IO_init_wmarker, _IO_iter_begin, _IO_iter_end, _IO_iter_file, _IO_iter_next, _IO_least_wmarker, _IO_link_in, _IO_list_all, _IO_list_lock, _IO_list_resetlock, _IO_list_unlock, _IO_marker_delta, _IO_marker_difference, _IO_remove_marker, _IO_seekmark, _IO_seekwmark, _IO_str_init_readonly, _IO_str_init_static, _IO_str_overflow, _IO_str_pbackfail, _IO_str_seekoff, _IO_str_underflow, _IO_switch_to_main_wget_area, _IO_switch_to_wget_mode, _IO_unsave_wmarkers, _IO_wdefault_doallocate, _IO_wdefault_finish, _IO_wdefault_pbackfail, _IO_wdefault_setbuf, _IO_wdefault_uflow, _IO_wdefault_xsgetn, _IO_wdefault_xsputn, _IO_wdoallocbuf, _IO_wdo_write, _IO_wfile_jumps, _IO_wfile_overflow, _IO_wfile_sync, _IO_wfile_underflow, _IO_wfile_xsputn, _IO_wmarker_delta, or _IO_wsetb may stop working with a future version of glibc. Unlike other symbol removals, these old applications will not be supported using compatibility symbols. * On GNU/Linux, the obsolete Linux constant PTRACE_SEIZE_DEVEL is no longer defined by <sys/ptrace.h>. * libm no longer supports SVID error handling (calling a user-provided matherr function on error) or the _LIB_VERSION variable to control error handling. (SVID error handling and the _LIB_VERSION variable still work for binaries linked against older versions of the GNU C Library.) The libieee.a library is no longer provided. math.h no longer defines struct exception, or the macros X_TLOSS, DOMAIN, SING, OVERFLOW, UNDERFLOW, TLOSS, PLOSS and HUGE. * The libm functions pow10, pow10f and pow10l are no longer supported for new programs. Programs should use the standard names exp10, exp10f and exp10l for these functions instead. * The mcontext_t type is no longer the same as struct sigcontext. On platforms where it was previously the same, this changes the C++ name mangling for interfaces involving this type. * The add-ons mechanism for building additional packages at the same time as glibc has been removed. The --enable-add-ons configure option is now ignored. * The --without-fp configure option is now ignored. Whether hardware floating-point instructions are used is now configured based on whether the compiler used at configure time (without any options implied by a --with-cpu= configure option) uses such instructions. * The res_hnok, res_dnok, res_mailok and res_ownok functions now check that the specified string can be parsed as a domain name. * In the malloc_info output, the <heap> element may contain another <aspace> element, "subheaps", which contains the number of sub-heaps. * The libresolv function p_secstodate is no longer supported for new programs. * The tilepro-*-linux-gnu configuration is no longer supported. * The nonstandard header files <libio.h> and <_G_config.h> are deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Software that is still using either header should be updated to use standard <stdio.h> interfaces instead. libio.h was originally the header for a set of supported GNU extensions, but they have not been maintained as such in many years, they are now standing in the way of improvements to stdio, and we don't think there are any remaining external users. _G_config.h was never intended for public use, but predates the bits convention. Changes to build and runtime requirements: * bison version 2.7 or later is required to generate code in the 'intl' subdirectory. Security related changes: CVE-2009-5064: The ldd script would sometimes run the program under examination directly, without preventing code execution through the dynamic linker. (The glibc project disputes that this is a security vulnerability; only trusted binaries must be examined using the ldd script.) CVE-2017-15670: The glob function, when invoked with GLOB_TILDE, suffered from a one-byte overflow during ~ operator processing (either on the stack or the heap, depending on the length of the user name). Reported by Tim Rühsen. CVE-2017-15671: The glob function, when invoked with GLOB_TILDE, would sometimes fail to free memory allocated during ~ operator processing, leading to a memory leak and, potentially, to a denial of service. CVE-2017-15804: The glob function, when invoked with GLOB_TILDE and without GLOB_NOESCAPE, could write past the end of a buffer while unescaping user names. Reported by Tim Rühsen. CVE-2017-17426: The malloc function, when called with an object size near the value SIZE_MAX, would return a pointer to a buffer which is too small, instead of NULL. This was a regression introduced with the new malloc thread cache in glibc 2.26. Reported by Iain Buclaw. CVE-2017-1000408: Incorrect array size computation in _dl_init_paths leads to the allocation of too much memory. (This is not a security bug per se, it is mentioned here only because of the CVE assignment.) Reported by Qualys. CVE-2017-1000409: Buffer overflow in _dl_init_paths due to miscomputation of the number of search path components. (This is not a security vulnerability per se because no trust boundary is crossed if the fix for CVE-2017-1000366 has been applied, but it is mentioned here only because of the CVE assignment.) Reported by Qualys. CVE-2017-16997: Incorrect handling of RPATH or RUNPATH containing $ORIGIN for AT_SECURE or SUID binaries could be used to load libraries from the current directory. CVE-2018-1000001: Buffer underflow in realpath function when getcwd function succeeds without returning an absolute path due to unexpected behaviour of the Linux kernel getcwd syscall. Reported by halfdog. CVE-2018-6485: The posix_memalign and memalign functions, when called with an object size near the value of SIZE_MAX, would return a pointer to a buffer which is too small, instead of NULL.

  • glibc-2.26.9000   Open master branch for glibc 2.27 development
  • glibc-2.26   FROM: Siddhesh Poyarekar <siddhesh@sourceware.org> SUBJECT: The GNU C Library version 2.26 is now available The GNU C Library ================= The GNU C Library version 2.26 is now available. The GNU C Library is used as *the* C library in the GNU system and in GNU/Linux systems, as well as many other systems that use Linux as the kernel. The GNU C Library is primarily designed to be a portable and high performance C library. It follows all relevant standards including ISO C11 and POSIX.1-2008. It is also internationalized and has one of the most complete internationalization interfaces known. The GNU C Library webpage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/ Packages for the 2.26 release may be downloaded from: http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/libc/ http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libc/ The mirror list is at http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html NEWS for version 2.26 ===================== Major new features: * A per-thread cache has been added to malloc. Access to the cache requires no locks and therefore significantly accelerates the fast path to allocate and free small amounts of memory. Refilling an empty cache requires locking the underlying arena. Performance measurements show significant gains in a wide variety of user workloads. Workloads were captured using a special instrumented malloc and analyzed with a malloc simulator. Contributed by DJ Delorie with the help of Florian Weimer, and Carlos O'Donell. * Unicode 10.0.0 Support: Character encoding, character type info, and transliteration tables are all updated to Unicode 10.0.0, using generator scripts contributed by Mike FABIAN (Red Hat). These updates cause user visible changes, especially the changes in wcwidth for many emoji characters cause problems when emoji sequences are rendered with pango, see for example: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=780669#c5 * Collation of Hungarian has been overhauled and is now consistent with "The Rules of Hungarian Orthography, 12th edition" (Bug 18934). Contributed by Egmont Koblinger. * Improvements to the DNS stub resolver, contributed by Florian Weimer: - The GNU C Library will now detect when /etc/resolv.conf has been modified and reload the changed configuration. The new resolver option “no-reload” (RES_NORELOAD) disables this behavior. - The GNU C Library now supports an arbitrary number of search domains (configured using the “search” directive in /etc/resolv.conf); previously, there was a hard limit of six domains. For backward compatibility, applications that directly modify the ‘_res’ global object are still limited to six search domains. - When the “rotate” (RES_ROTATE) resolver option is active, the GNU C Library will now randomly pick a name server from the configuration as a starting point. (Previously, the second name server was always used.) * The tunables feature is now enabled by default. This allows users to tweak behavior of the GNU C Library using the GLIBC_TUNABLES environment variable. * New function reallocarray, which resizes an allocated block (like realloc) to the product of two sizes, with a guaranteed clean failure upon integer overflow in the multiplication. Originally from OpenBSD, contributed by Dennis Wölfing and Rüdiger Sonderfeld. * New wrappers for the Linux-specific system calls preadv2 and pwritev2. These are extended versions of preadv and pwritev, respectively, taking an additional flags argument. The set of supported flags depends on the running kernel; full support currently requires kernel 4.7 or later. * posix_spawnattr_setflags now supports the flag POSIX_SPAWN_SETSID, to create a new session ID for the spawned process. This feature is scheduled to be added to the next major revision of POSIX; for the time being, it is available under _GNU_SOURCE. * errno.h is now safe to use from C-preprocessed assembly language on all supported operating systems. In this context, it will only define the Exxxx constants, as preprocessor macros expanding to integer literals. * On ia64, powerpc64le, x86-32, and x86-64, the math library now implements 128-bit floating point as defined by ISO/IEC/IEEE 60559:2011 (IEEE 754-2008) and ISO/IEC TS 18661-3:2015. Contributed by Paul E. Murphy, Gabriel F. T. Gomes, Tulio Magno Quites Machado Filho, and Joseph Myers. To compile programs that use this feature, the compiler must support 128-bit floating point with the type name _Float128 (as defined by TS 18661-3) or __float128 (the nonstandard name used by GCC for C++, and for C prior to version 7). _GNU_SOURCE or __STDC_WANT_IEC_60559_TYPES_EXT__ must be defined to make the new interfaces visible. The new functions and macros correspond to those present for other floating-point types (except for a few obsolescent interfaces not supported for the new type), with F128 or f128 suffixes; for example, strtof128, HUGE_VAL_F128 and cosf128. Following TS 18661-3, there are no printf or scanf formats for the new type; the strfromf128 and strtof128 interfaces should be used instead. Deprecated and removed features, and other changes affecting compatibility: * The synchronization that pthread_spin_unlock performs has been changed to now be equivalent to a C11 atomic store with release memory order to the spin lock's memory location. Previously, several (but not all) architectures used stronger synchronization (e.g., containing what is often called a full barrier). This change can improve performance, but may affect odd fringe uses of spin locks that depend on the previous behavior (e.g., using spin locks as atomic variables to try to implement Dekker's mutual exclusion algorithm). * The port to Native Client running on ARMv7-A (--host=arm-nacl) has been removed. * Sun RPC is deprecated. The rpcgen program, librpcsvc, and Sun RPC headers will only be built and installed when the GNU C Library is configured with --enable-obsolete-rpc. This allows alternative RPC implementations, such as TIRPC or rpcsvc-proto, to be used. * The NIS(+) name service modules, libnss_nis, libnss_nisplus, and libnss_compat, are deprecated, and will not be built or installed by default. The NIS(+) support library, libnsl, is also deprecated. By default, a compatibility shared library will be built and installed, but not headers or development libraries. Only a few NIS-related programs require this library. (In particular, the GNU C Library has never required programs that use 'gethostbyname' to be linked with libnsl.) Replacement implementations based on TIRPC, which additionally support IPv6, are available from <https://github.com/thkukuk/>. The configure option --enable-obsolete-nsl will cause libnsl's headers, and the NIS(+) name service modules, to be built and installed. * The DNS stub resolver no longer performs EDNS fallback. If EDNS or DNSSEC support is enabled, the configured recursive resolver must support EDNS. (Responding to EDNS-enabled queries with responses which are not EDNS-enabled is fine, but FORMERR responses are not.) * res_mkquery and res_nmkquery no longer support the IQUERY opcode. DNS servers have not supported this opcode for a long time. * The _res_opcodes variable has been removed from libresolv. It had been exported by accident. * <string.h> no longer includes inline versions of any string functions, as this kind of optimization is better done by the compiler. The macros __USE_STRING_INLINES and __NO_STRING_INLINES no longer have any effect. * The nonstandard header <xlocale.h> has been removed. Most programs should use <locale.h> instead. If you have a specific need for the definition of locale_t with no other declarations, please contact libc-alpha@sourceware.org and explain. * The obsolete header <sys/ultrasound.h> has been removed. * The obsolete signal constant SIGUNUSED is no longer defined by <signal.h>. * The obsolete function cfree has been removed. Applications should use free instead. * The stack_t type no longer has the name struct sigaltstack. This changes the C++ name mangling for interfaces involving this type. * The ucontext_t type no longer has the name struct ucontext. This changes the C++ name mangling for interfaces involving this type. * On M68k GNU/Linux and MIPS GNU/Linux, the fpregset_t type no longer has the name struct fpregset. On Nios II GNU/Linux, the mcontext_t type no longer has the name struct mcontext. On SPARC GNU/Linux, the struct mc_fq, struct rwindow, struct fpq and struct fq types are no longer defined in sys/ucontext.h, the mc_fpu_t type no longer has the name struct mc_fpu, the gwindows_t type no longer has the name struct gwindows and the fpregset_t type no longer has the name struct fpu. This changes the C++ name mangling for interfaces involving those types. * On S/390 GNU/Linux, the constants defined by <sys/ptrace.h> have been synced with the kernel: - PTRACE_GETREGS, PTRACE_SETREGS, PTRACE_GETFPREGS and PTRACE_SETFPREGS are not supported on this architecture and have been removed. - PTRACE_SINGLEBLOCK, PTRACE_SECCOMP_GET_FILTER, PTRACE_PEEKUSR_AREA, PTRACE_POKEUSR_AREA, PTRACE_GET_LAST_BREAK, PTRACE_ENABLE_TE, PTRACE_DISABLE_TE and PTRACE_TE_ABORT_RAND have been added. Programs that assume the GET/SETREGS ptrace requests are universally available will now fail to build, instead of malfunctioning at runtime. Changes to build and runtime requirements: * Linux kernel 3.2 or later is required at runtime, on all architectures supported by that kernel. (This is a change from version 2.25 only for x86-32 and x86-64.) * GNU Binutils 2.25 or later is now required to build the GNU C Library. * On most architectures, GCC 4.9 or later is required to build the GNU C Library. On powerpc64le, GCC 6.2 or later is required. Older GCC versions and non-GNU compilers are still supported when compiling programs that use the GNU C Library. (We do not know exactly how old, and some GNU extensions to C may be _de facto_ required. If you are interested in helping us make this statement less vague, please contact libc-alpha@sourceware.org.) Security related changes: * The DNS stub resolver limits the advertised UDP buffer size to 1200 bytes, to avoid fragmentation-based spoofing attacks (CVE-2017-12132). * LD_LIBRARY_PATH is now ignored in binaries running in privileged AT_SECURE mode to guard against local privilege escalation attacks (CVE-2017-1000366). * Avoid printing a backtrace from the __stack_chk_fail function since it is called on a corrupt stack and a backtrace is unreliable on a corrupt stack (CVE-2010-3192). * A use-after-free vulnerability in clntudp_call in the Sun RPC system has been fixed (CVE-2017-12133).

  • glibc-2.25.90   Open master branch for glibc 2.26 development
  • glibc-2.25   The GNU C Library ================= The GNU C Library version 2.25 is now available. The GNU C Library is used as *the* C library in the GNU system and in GNU/Linux systems, as well as many other systems that use Linux as the kernel. The GNU C Library is primarily designed to be a portable and high performance C library. It follows all relevant standards including ISO C11 and POSIX.1-2008. It is also internationalized and has one of the most complete internationalization interfaces known. The GNU C Library webpage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/ Packages for the 2.25 release may be downloaded from: http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/libc/ http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libc/ The mirror list is at http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html NEWS for version 2.25 ===================== * The feature test macro __STDC_WANT_LIB_EXT2__, from ISO/IEC TR 24731-2:2010, is supported to enable declarations of functions from that TR. Note that not all functions from that TR are supported by the GNU C Library. * The feature test macro __STDC_WANT_IEC_60559_BFP_EXT__, from ISO/IEC TS 18661-1:2014, is supported to enable declarations of functions and macros from that TS. Note that not all features from that TS are supported by the GNU C Library. * The feature test macro __STDC_WANT_IEC_60559_FUNCS_EXT__, from ISO/IEC TS 18661-4:2015, is supported to enable declarations of functions and macros from that TS. Note that most features from that TS are not supported by the GNU C Library. * The nonstandard feature selection macros _REENTRANT and _THREAD_SAFE are now treated as compatibility synonyms for _POSIX_C_SOURCE=199506L. Since the GNU C Library defaults to a much newer revision of POSIX, this will only affect programs that specifically request an old conformance mode. For instance, a program compiled with -std=c89 -D_REENTRANT will see a change in the visible declarations, but a program compiled with just -D_REENTRANT, or -std=c99 -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=200809L -D_REENTRANT, will not. Some C libraries once required _REENTRANT and/or _THREAD_SAFE to be defined by all multithreaded code, but glibc has not required this for many years. * The inclusion of <sys/sysmacros.h> by <sys/types.h> is deprecated. This means that in a future release, the macros “major”, “minor”, and “makedev” will only be available from <sys/sysmacros.h>. These macros are not part of POSIX nor XSI, and their names frequently collide with user code; see for instance glibc bug 19239 and Red Hat bug 130601. <stdlib.h> includes <sys/types.h> under _GNU_SOURCE, and C++ code presently cannot avoid being compiled under _GNU_SOURCE, exacerbating the problem. * New <fenv.h> features from TS 18661-1:2014 are added to libm: the fesetexcept, fetestexceptflag, fegetmode and fesetmode functions, the femode_t type and the FE_DFL_MODE and FE_SNANS_ALWAYS_SIGNAL macros. * Integer width macros from TS 18661-1:2014 are added to <limits.h>: CHAR_WIDTH, SCHAR_WIDTH, UCHAR_WIDTH, SHRT_WIDTH, USHRT_WIDTH, INT_WIDTH, UINT_WIDTH, LONG_WIDTH, ULONG_WIDTH, LLONG_WIDTH, ULLONG_WIDTH; and to <stdint.h>: INT8_WIDTH, UINT8_WIDTH, INT16_WIDTH, UINT16_WIDTH, INT32_WIDTH, UINT32_WIDTH, INT64_WIDTH, UINT64_WIDTH, INT_LEAST8_WIDTH, UINT_LEAST8_WIDTH, INT_LEAST16_WIDTH, UINT_LEAST16_WIDTH, INT_LEAST32_WIDTH, UINT_LEAST32_WIDTH, INT_LEAST64_WIDTH, UINT_LEAST64_WIDTH, INT_FAST8_WIDTH, UINT_FAST8_WIDTH, INT_FAST16_WIDTH, UINT_FAST16_WIDTH, INT_FAST32_WIDTH, UINT_FAST32_WIDTH, INT_FAST64_WIDTH, UINT_FAST64_WIDTH, INTPTR_WIDTH, UINTPTR_WIDTH, INTMAX_WIDTH, UINTMAX_WIDTH, PTRDIFF_WIDTH, SIG_ATOMIC_WIDTH, SIZE_WIDTH, WCHAR_WIDTH, WINT_WIDTH. * New <math.h> features are added from TS 18661-1:2014: - Signaling NaN macros: SNANF, SNAN, SNANL. - Nearest integer functions: roundeven, roundevenf, roundevenl, fromfp, fromfpf, fromfpl, ufromfp, ufromfpf, ufromfpl, fromfpx, fromfpxf, fromfpxl, ufromfpx, ufromfpxf, ufromfpxl. - llogb functions: the llogb, llogbf and llogbl functions, and the FP_LLOGB0 and FP_LLOGBNAN macros. - Max-min magnitude functions: fmaxmag, fmaxmagf, fmaxmagl, fminmag, fminmagf, fminmagl. - Comparison macros: iseqsig. - Classification macros: iscanonical, issubnormal, iszero. - Total order functions: totalorder, totalorderf, totalorderl, totalordermag, totalordermagf, totalordermagl. - Canonicalize functions: canonicalize, canonicalizef, canonicalizel. - NaN functions: getpayload, getpayloadf, getpayloadl, setpayload, setpayloadf, setpayloadl, setpayloadsig, setpayloadsigf, setpayloadsigl. * The functions strfromd, strfromf, and strfroml, from ISO/IEC TS 18661-1:2014, are added to libc. They convert a floating-point number into string. * Most of glibc can now be built with the stack smashing protector enabled. It is recommended to build glibc with --enable-stack-protector=strong. Implemented by Nick Alcock (Oracle). * The function explicit_bzero, from OpenBSD, has been added to libc. It is intended to be used instead of memset() to erase sensitive data after use; the compiler will not optimize out calls to explicit_bzero even if they are "unnecessary" (in the sense that no _correct_ program can observe the effects of the memory clear). * On ColdFire, MicroBlaze, Nios II and SH3, the float_t type is now defined to float instead of double. This does not affect the ABI of any libraries that are part of the GNU C Library, but may affect the ABI of other libraries that use this type in their interfaces. * On x86_64, when compiling with -mfpmath=387 or -mfpmath=sse+387, the float_t and double_t types are now defined to long double instead of float and double. These options are not the default, and this does not affect the ABI of any libraries that are part of the GNU C Library, but it may affect the ABI of other libraries that use this type in their interfaces, if they are compiled or used with those options. * The getentropy and getrandom functions, and the <sys/random.h> header file have been added. * The buffer size for byte-oriented stdio streams is now limited to 8192 bytes by default. Previously, on Linux, the default buffer size on most file systems was 4096 bytes (and thus remains unchanged), except on network file systems, where the buffer size was unpredictable and could be as large as several megabytes. * The <sys/quota.h> header now includes the <linux/quota.h> header. Support for the Linux quota interface which predates kernel version 2.4.22 has been removed. * The malloc_get_state and malloc_set_state functions have been removed. Already-existing binaries that dynamically link to these functions will get a hidden implementation in which malloc_get_state is a stub. As far as we know, these functions are used only by GNU Emacs and this change will not adversely affect already-built Emacs executables. Any undumped Emacs executables, which normally exist only during an Emacs build, should be rebuilt by re-running “./configure; make” in the Emacs build tree. * The “ip6-dotint” and “no-ip6-dotint” resolver options, and the corresponding RES_NOIP6DOTINT flag from <resolv.h> have been removed. “no-ip6-dotint” had already been the default, and support for the “ip6-dotint” option was removed from the Internet in 2006. * The "ip6-bytestring" resolver option and the corresponding RES_USEBSTRING flag from <resolv.h> have been removed. The option relied on a backwards-incompatible DNS extension which was never deployed on the Internet. * The flags RES_AAONLY, RES_PRIMARY, RES_NOCHECKNAME, RES_KEEPTSIG, RES_BLAST defined in the <resolv.h> header file have been deprecated. They were already unimplemented. * The "inet6" option in /etc/resolv.conf and the RES_USE_INET6 flag for _res.flags are deprecated. The flag was standardized in RFC 2133, but removed again from the IETF name lookup interface specification in RFC 2553. Applications should use getaddrinfo instead. * DNSSEC-related declarations and definitions have been removed from the <arpa/nameser.h> header file, and libresolv will no longer attempt to decode the data part of DNSSEC record types. Previous versions of glibc only implemented minimal support for the previous version of DNSSEC, which is incompatible with the currently deployed version. * The resource record type classification macros ns_t_qt_p, ns_t_mrr_p, ns_t_rr_p, ns_t_udp_p, ns_t_xfr_p have been removed from the <arpa/nameser.h> header file because the distinction between RR types and meta-RR types is not officially standardized, subject to revision, and thus not suitable for encoding in a macro. * The types res_sendhookact, res_send_qhook, re_send_rhook, and the qhook and rhook members of the res_state type in <resolv.h> have been removed. The glibc stub resolver did not support these hooks, but the header file did not reflect that. * For multi-arch support it is recommended to use a GCC which has been built with support for GNU indirect functions. This ensures that correct debugging information is generated for functions selected by IFUNC resolvers. This support can either be enabled by configuring GCC with '--enable-gnu-indirect-function', or by enabling it by default by setting 'default_gnu_indirect_function' variable for a particular architecture in the GCC source file 'gcc/config.gcc'. * GDB pretty printers have been added for mutex and condition variable structures in POSIX Threads. When installed and loaded in gdb these pretty printers show various pthread variables in human-readable form when read using the 'print' or 'display' commands in gdb. * Tunables feature added to allow tweaking of the runtime for an application program. This feature can be enabled with the '--enable-tunables' configure flag. The GNU C Library manual has details on usage and README.tunables has instructions on adding new tunables to the library. * A new version of condition variables functions have been implemented in the NPTL implementation of POSIX Threads to provide stronger ordering guarantees. * A new version of pthread_rwlock functions have been implemented to use a more scalable algorithm primarily through not using a critical section anymore to make state changes. Security related changes: * On ARM EABI (32-bit), generating a backtrace for execution contexts which have been created with makecontext could fail to terminate due to a missing .cantunwind annotation. This has been observed to lead to a hang (denial of service) in some Go applications compiled with gccgo. Reported by Andreas Schwab. (CVE-2016-6323) * The DNS stub resolver functions would crash due to a NULL pointer dereference when processing a query with a valid DNS question type which was used internally in the implementation. The stub resolver now uses a question type which is outside the range of valid question type values.

    db0242e3 · Update for 2.25 release ·
  • glibc-2.24.90   Open master branch for glibc 2.25 development
  • glibc-2.24   The GNU C Library ================= The GNU C Library version 2.24 is now available. The GNU C Library is used as *the* C library in the GNU system and in GNU/Linux systems, as well as many other systems that use Linux as the kernel. The GNU C Library is primarily designed to be a portable and high performance C library. It follows all relevant standards including ISO C11 and POSIX.1-2008. It is also internationalized and has one of the most complete internationalization interfaces known. The GNU C Library webpage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/ Packages for the 2.24 release may be downloaded from: http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/libc/ http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libc/ The mirror list is at http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html NEWS for version 2.24 ===================== * The minimum Linux kernel version that this version of the GNU C Library can be used with is 3.2, except on i[4567]86 and x86_64, where Linux kernel version 2.6.32 or later suffices (on architectures that already required kernel versions more recent than 3.2, those requirements remain unchanged). Linux 3.2 or later kernel headers are required on all architectures. * The pap_AN locale has been deleted. This has been deprecated for a long time. It has been replaced by pap_AW & pap_CW, both of which have long been included in previous releases. * The readdir_r and readdir64_r functions have been deprecated. It is recommended to use readdir and readdir64 instead. * The type “union wait” has been removed. It was deprecated in the early 1990s and never part of POSIX. Application code should use the int type instead of “union wait”. * A new NSS action is added to facilitate large distributed system administration. The action, MERGE, allows remote user stores like LDAP to be merged into local user stores like /etc/groups in order to provide easy to use, updated, and managed sets of merged credentials. The new action can be used by configuring it in /etc/nsswitch.conf: group: files [SUCCESS=merge] nis Implemented by Stephen Gallagher (Red Hat). * The deprecated __malloc_initialize_hook variable has been removed from the API. * The long unused localedef --old-style option has been removed. It hasn't done anything in over 16 years. Scripts using this option can safely drop it. * nextupl, nextup, nextupf, nextdownl, nextdown and nextdownf are added to libm. They are defined by TS 18661 and IEEE754-2008. The nextup functions return the next representable value in the direction of positive infinity and the nextdown functions return the next representable value in the direction of negative infinity. These are currently enabled as GNU extensions. Security related changes: * An unnecessary stack copy in _nss_dns_getnetbyname_r was removed. It could result in a stack overflow when getnetbyname was called with an overly long name. (CVE-2016-3075) * Previously, getaddrinfo copied large amounts of address data to the stack, even after the fix for CVE-2013-4458 has been applied, potentially resulting in a stack overflow. getaddrinfo now uses a heap allocation instead. Reported by Michael Petlan. (CVE-2016-3706) * The glob function suffered from a stack-based buffer overflow when it was called with the GLOB_ALTDIRFUNC flag and encountered a long file name. Reported by Alexander Cherepanov. (CVE-2016-1234) * The Sun RPC UDP client could exhaust all available stack space when flooded with crafted ICMP and UDP messages. Reported by Aldy Hernandez' alloca plugin for GCC. (CVE-2016-4429) * The IPv6 name server management code in libresolv could result in a memory leak for each thread which is created, performs a failing naming lookup, and exits. Over time, this could result in a denial of service due to memory exhaustion. Reported by Matthias Schiffer.

  • glibc-2.23.90   Open master branch for glibc 2.24 development
  • glibc-2.23   The GNU C Library ================= The GNU C Library version 2.23 is now available. The GNU C Library is used as *the* C library in the GNU system and in GNU/Linux systems, as well as many other systems that use Linux as the kernel. The GNU C Library is primarily designed to be a portable and high performance C library. It follows all relevant standards including ISO C11 and POSIX.1-2008. It is also internationalized and has one of the most complete internationalization interfaces known. The GNU C Library webpage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/ Packages for the 2.23 release may be downloaded from: http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/libc/ http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libc/ The mirror list is at http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html NEWS for version 2.23 ===================== * Unicode 8.0.0 Support: Character encoding, character type info, and transliteration tables are all updated to Unicode 8.0.0, using new and/or improved generator scripts contributed by Mike FABIAN (Red Hat). These updates cause user visible changes, such as the fixes for bugs 89, 16061, and 18568. * sched_setaffinity, pthread_setaffinity_np no longer attempt to guess the kernel-internal CPU set size. This means that requests that change the CPU affinity which failed before (for example, an all-ones CPU mask) will now succeed. Applications that need to determine the effective CPU affinities need to call sched_getaffinity or pthread_getaffinity_np after setting it because the kernel can adjust it (and the previous size check would not detect this in the majority of cases). * The fts.h header can now be used with -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64. With LFS the following new symbols are used: fts64_children, fts64_close, fts64_open, fts64_read and fts64_set. * getaddrinfo now detects certain invalid responses on an internal netlink socket. If such responses are received, an affected process will terminate with an error message of "Unexpected error <number> on netlink descriptor <number>" or "Unexpected netlink response of size <number> on descriptor <number>". The most likely cause for these errors is a multi-threaded application which erroneously closes and reuses the netlink file descriptor while it is used by getaddrinfo. * A defect in the malloc implementation, present since glibc 2.15 (2012) or glibc 2.10 via --enable-experimental-malloc (2009), could result in the unnecessary serialization of memory allocation requests across threads. The defect is now corrected. Users should see a substantial increase in the concurent throughput of allocation requests for applications which trigger this bug. Affected applications typically create create and destroy threads frequently. (Bug 19048 was reported and analyzed by Ericsson.) * There is now a --disable-timezone-tools configure option for disabling the building and installing of the timezone related utilities (zic, zdump, and tzselect). This is useful for people who build the timezone data and code independent of the GNU C Library. * The obsolete header <regexp.h> has been removed. Programs that require this header must be updated to use <regex.h> instead. * The obsolete functions bdflush, create_module, get_kernel_syms, query_module and uselib are no longer available to newly linked binaries; the header <sys/kdaemon.h> has been removed. These functions and header were specific to systems using the Linux kernel and could not usefully be used with the GNU C Library on systems with version 2.6 or later of the Linux kernel. * Optimized string, wcsmbs and memory functions for IBM z13. Implemented by Stefan Liebler. * Newly linked programs that define a variable called signgam will no longer have it set by the lgamma, lgammaf and lgammal functions. Programs that require signgam to be set by those functions must ensure that they use the variable provided by the GNU C Library and declared in <math.h>, without defining their own copy. * The minimum GCC version that can be used to build this version of the GNU C Library is GCC 4.7. Older GCC versions, and non-GNU compilers, can still be used to compile programs using the GNU C Library. Security related changes: * An out-of-bounds value in a broken-out struct tm argument to strftime no longer causes a crash. Reported by Adam Nielsen. (CVE-2015-8776) * The LD_POINTER_GUARD environment variable can no longer be used to disable the pointer guard feature. It is always enabled. Previously, LD_POINTER_GUARD could be used to disable security hardening in binaries running in privileged AT_SECURE mode. Reported by Hector Marco-Gisbert. (CVE-2015-8777) * An integer overflow in hcreate and hcreate_r could lead to an out-of-bounds memory access. Reported by Szabolcs Nagy. (CVE-2015-8778) * The catopen function no longer has unbounded stack usage. Reported by Max. (CVE-2015-8779) * The nan, nanf and nanl functions no longer have unbounded stack usage depending on the length of the string passed as an argument to the functions. Reported by Joseph Myers. (CVE-2014-9761) * A stack-based buffer overflow was found in libresolv when invoked from libnss_dns, allowing specially crafted DNS responses to seize control of execution flow in the DNS client. The buffer overflow occurs in the functions send_dg (send datagram) and send_vc (send TCP) for the NSS module libnss_dns.so.2 when calling getaddrinfo with AF_UNSPEC family. The use of AF_UNSPEC triggers the low-level resolver code to send out two parallel queries for A and AAAA. A mismanagement of the buffers used for those queries could result in the response of a query writing beyond the alloca allocated buffer created by _nss_dns_gethostbyname4_r. Buffer management is simplified to remove the overflow. Thanks to the Google Security Team and Red Hat for reporting the security impact of this issue, and Robert Holiday of Ciena for reporting the related bug 18665.
