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.
KDE Applications 14.12 released
The KDE project has announced the release of KDE Applications 14.12, which has the first set of applications that have been ported to KDE Frameworks 5. Most of the applications are still based on KDE Development Platform 4, but some have been moved to the new Qt5-based Frameworks. "The release includes the first KDE Frameworks 5-based versions of Kate and KWrite, Konsole, Gwenview, KAlgebra, Kanagram, KHangman, Kig, Parley, KApptemplate and Okteta. Some libraries are also ready for KDE Frameworks 5 use: analitza and libkeduvocdocument.
Libkface is new in this release; it is a library to enable face detection and face recognition in photographs." More information on the new features and fixes that came in the release can be found in the change log and a KDE.News article.
