frinnstheh, i was running a xorg-server 1.17-rc before i rebuild with
frinnstyou sure get some wierd errors unless you rebuild the drivers when downgrading08:20
RomsterABI yeah08:21
frinnstI thought i had some hardware issue when i turned on my box this morning08:22
frinnstjust a blank screen08:22
Romsteranyone going to do alancos kde4 branch update to 3.108:22
Romsterhah man that reminds me of the error screensaver.... the moment i glanced at my monitor it had the kenrel panic of linux....08:23
Romsteri was WTF08:24
Romsteroh gawd it was just the screensaver08:24
prologicanyone else have trouble using bintary in sources for ports?08:28
prologiceven wget'ing the url sucks08:29
teK_Workster / Romster I updated kde4 to point to 3.1. Should hit the website tomorrow, when pdb was updated08:29
RomsterteK_, thanks man. alan seems to have a hard time with updates or isn't around for a dev to see.08:39
RomsterteK_, does all the site work anymore.08:39
Romsterwhen i read the xorg security venerability's i was shocked.08:40
diverseit was the heartbleed of GUIs huh?08:41
RomsterThese issues date back to the 80's and 90's -- thus affecting most X.Org running systems out there. The oldest of these vulnerabilities go back to 1987 with X11 core protocol requests.08:42
Romsterdoes no one valgrind or other tools for these?08:43
diversealright, more like the Bash shellshock of GUIs08:43
teK_Ilja van Sprundel probably did ;)08:43
teK_but I think that he was a fuzzer-guy so he probably used that, too08:44
RomsterAmong the vulnerabilities are an unchecked malloc in client authentication leading to a potential denial of service, integer overflows, and out of bounds access due to not checking lengths/offsets in requests.08:44
Romsteri mean the first rule is never trust user input. check everything.08:44
Romsterpoor programming practices.08:45
teK_the fixes mention "added paranoia" which reflects a strange attitude towards this topic. IMHO08:47
diversewhat does "added paranoia" mean specifically?08:49
diversestill 3 bigs ones this years, heartblead, shellshock, and now this08:51
Romsteryeah i hope this is the last one for this year....09:06
teK_diverse: it means they do proper length checking instead of relying on the users to behave...09:14
diverseah gotcha09:14
teK_it's like using a parameter superuser=(0|1) in the URL of your webapp without checking09:15
diverseoh I guess I was thinking of array bounds checking09:16
*** Feksclaus has joined #crux-devel09:29
teK_yeah that was faulty too, iirc09:41
diversebuffer overflows huh?09:42
teK_for maximum pleasure, read the linked ML posts09:42
diversesomehow I think it's more important that programmers get re-educated in the art of code-correctness09:44
diversebecause that seems to be in much higher demand now with all these expliot findings10:05
prologicWhere's sepan these days?11:02
