I put a bit of effort into chasing down the astonishingly high number of CVEs attributed to X in a single day (10th Dec 2014), as quoted by Michael Larabel, so I thought I’d share the links for those of us who enjoy torturing small defenceless Linux dweebs:

1) CVE-2014-8091 : malloc attack. Affects: *nix.
2) CVE-2014-8092 : Multiple integer overflows. Affects: *nix.
3) CVE-2014-8093 : Integer overflows in GLX extension. Affects: *nix.
4) CVE-2014-8094 : Integer overflow in DRI2 extension. Affects: *nix.
5) CVE-2014-8095 : XInput extension, buffer overrun. Affects: *nix.
6) CVE-2014-8096 : XCMisc extension, buffer overrun. Affects: *nix.
7) CVE-2014-8097 : DBE extension ...

Yes, it’s our old friend pulseaudio. And our even older friend Jack Wallen.

Jack Wallen, Loon Extraordinaire, apparently makes a significant amount of his income out of audio books. (Now is not the time to ask WHAT SORT OF BLITHERING IDIOT WOULD PAY GOOD MONEY FOR THOSE?)

Apparently, the Linux Audio Stack, which these days is practically burned in as pulseaudio ... so much for “choice” ... is a serious threat to this part of Jack’s livelihood.

And I have gone through a long list of troubleshooting steps:
  • Replaced motherboard
  • Ran memtest86
  • Replaced hard drive
  • Tested CPU
  • Installed three flavors ...

As I mentioned, there are presently two known forks of OpenSSL. And what with a fork being the traditional way for *nix developers to fuck themselves up, I thought it was worth a look at the slightly more rational one.[1]

I’m going to elide the silly hex numbers and also elide the submitter of the update, just for yucks.

Fix garbage free on malloc failure in ec_wNAF_mul.

Remove support for processing fragmented alerts

Don’t resume sessions if the negotiated version doesn’t match

Fix ec_test build on Windows.

runner: Refuse to resume sessions on mismatching versions.

Remove ...

This is an important guidebook to check for parents. If we can catch freetardism early, it is much easier to cure.

It’s true. Loonix is made by hacker scum. No wonder Loonix is so easy to hack. This horrible fact is suppressed by the freetards.

The love of Linux is so strong that even former enemies can not resist. Main competitor Microsoft is using more Linux systems in their infrastructure then ever. Microsoft is also a top sponsor of Linux kernel development.

Linux is the most advanced operating system in the world. Built on freedom, trusted by everyone. Including Microsoft!

Seems like there is a bug in GPSD (Linux’s GPS daemon), and ESR is asking for help. Via his obscure blog.

So, ESR is relying on unpaid developers (if and when they can) to help out with bugs in GPSD. And Google is relying on ESR because Android uses GPSD.

So, users relying on Android are relying on someone who knows C and statistics and happens to be reading ESR’s obscure blog right now, and is willing to help, and has time to help.

Isn’t open source great?

And no, Google doesn’t have to send developers ...
