Linux Weekly News

Two rounds of stable kernels released
Greg Kroah-Hartman has released two batches of stable kernels. The first set has fixes in various parts of the tree, while the second batch has a single fix for a problem with the page-table-entry inversion that is done as a mitigation for the L1TF speculative-execution vulnerability. The first batch includes: 4.18.2, 4.17.16, 4.14.64, 4.9.121, 4.4.149, and 3.18.119. The second batch is: 4.18.3, 4.17.17, 4.14.65, 4.9.122, and 4.4.150. Users should upgrade, presumably to something in the second batch unless they are running the 3.18 series.
Security updates for Friday
Security updates have been issued by Debian (intel- microcode, keystone, php-horde-image, and xen), Fedora (rsyslog), openSUSE (apache2, clamav, kernel, php7, qemu, samba, and Security), Oracle (mariadb and qemu-kvm), Red Hat (docker, mariadb, and qemu-kvm), Scientific Linux (mariadb and qemu-kvm), SUSE (GraphicsMagick, kernel, kgraft, mutt, perl-Archive-Zip, python, and xen), and Ubuntu (postgresql-10, postgresql-9.3, postgresql-9.5, procps, and webkit2gtk).
[$] The first half of the 4.19 merge window
As of this writing, Linus Torvalds has pulled just over 7,600 non-merge changesets into the mainline repository for the 4.19 development cycle.
4.19 thus seems to be off to a faster-than-usual start, perhaps because the one-week delay in the opening of the merge window gave subsystem maintainers a bit more time to get ready. There is, as usual, a lot of interesting new code finding its way into the kernel, along with the usual stream of fixes and cleanups.
The Problems and Promise of WebAssembly (Project Zero)
Over at Google's Project Zero blog, Natalie Silvanovich looks at some of the bugs the project has found in WebAssembly, which is a binary format to run code in the browser for web applications. She also looks to the future: "There are two emerging features of WebAssembly that are likely to have a security impact. One is threading. Currently, WebAssembly only supports concurrency via JavaScript workers, but this is likely to change. Since JavaScript is designed assuming that this is the only concurrency model, WebAssembly threading has the potential to require a lot of code to be thread safe that did not previously need to be, and this could lead to security problems.
WebAssembly GC [garbage collection] is another potential feature of WebAssembly that could lead to security problems. Currently, some uses of WebAssembly have performance problems due to the lack of higher-level memory management in WebAssembly. For example, it is difficult to implement a performant Java Virtual Machine in WebAssembly. If WebAssembly GC is implemented, it will increase the number of applications that WebAssembly can be used for, but it will also make it more likely that vulnerabilities related to memory management will occur in both WebAssembly engines and applications written in WebAssembly."
Debian: 25 years and counting
The Debian project is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its founding by Ian Murdock on August 16, 1993. The "Bits from Debian" blog had this to say: "Today, the Debian project is a large and thriving organization with countless self-organized teams comprised of volunteers. While it often looks chaotic from the outside, the project is sustained by its two main organizational documents: the Debian Social Contract, which provides a vision of improving society, and the Debian Free Software Guidelines, which provide an indication of what software is considered usable. They are supplemented by the project's Constitution which lays down the project structure, and the Code of Conduct, which sets the tone for interactions within the project.
Every day over the last 25 years, people have sent bug reports and patches, uploaded packages, updated translations, created artwork, organized events about Debian, updated the website, taught others how to use Debian, and created hundreds of derivatives." Happy birthday to the project from all of us here at LWN.
