[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.12.8, Package name: go-1.12.8, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

This is a meta package providing the latest release of the Go
programming language that is available for the host system.

The actual Go programming language is provided by packages such as
lang/go111, lang/go110, etc. This package merely allows users to
install "go" instead of having to figure out the exact package name.

No package should depend on this package directly.


Required to run:
[lang/go112]

Required to build:

Log message:
go112: update to 1.12.8 (security release).

net/http: Denial of Service vulnerabilities in the HTTP/2 implementation

net/http and golang.org/x/net/http2 servers that accept direct connections from
untrusted clients could be remotely made to allocate an unlimited amount of
memory, until the program crashes. Servers will now close connections if the
send queue accumulates too many control messages.

The issues are CVE-2019-9512 and CVE-2019-9514, and Go issue golang.org/issue/33606.
Thanks to Jonathan Looney from Netflix for discovering and reporting these issues.

This is also fixed in version v0.0.0-20190813141303-74dc4d7220e7 of
golang.org/x/net/http2.

net/url: parsing validation issue

url.Parse would accept URLs with malformed hosts, such that the Host field
could have arbitrary suffixes that would appear in neither Hostname() nor
Port(), allowing authorization bypasses in certain applications. Note that URLs
with invalid, not numeric ports will now return an error from url.Parse.

The issue is CVE-2019-14809 and Go issue golang.org/issue/29098.
Thanks to Julian Hector and Nikolai Krein from Cure53, and Adi Cohen (adico.me)
for discovering and reporting this issue.

the go command, and the crypto/x509, net/http, and os packages.
See the Go 1.12.6 milestone on our issue tracker for details.

go1.12.7 (released 2019/07/08) includes fixes to cgo, the compiler,
and the linker. See the Go 1.12.7 milestone on our issue tracker for details.

This release includes fixes to the compiler, the linker, the go command,
the runtime, and the os package.

Same as for go111, remove the pkg/bootstrap tree from the package.

Log message:
Update go111 to 1.11.10.

This release includes fixes to the compiler, the linker, the go command, the
runtime, and the os package.

While here, remove pkg/bootstrap from the package, as it is only used
for bootstrapping.

Log message:
go: Introduce support for GO_DEPS.

This supports packages that require a large number of go-based dependencies,
treating them as additional distfiles and built inline as part of the package
build.  The print-go-deps target is helpful to generate the list of GO_DEPS
required for each package by parsing the Gopkg.lock file in the extracted
sources.

Thanks to rillig@ for various suggestions and comments.

Log message:
Update go112 to 1.12.4.

go1.12.2 (released 2019/04/05) includes fixes to the compiler, the go command,
the runtime, and the doc, net, net/http/httputil, and os packages. See the Go
1.12.2 milestone on our issue tracker for details.

go1.12.3 (released 2019/04/08) was accidentally released without its intended
fix. It is identical to go1.12.2, except for its version number. The intended
fix is in go1.12.4.

go1.12.4 (released 2019/04/11) fixes an issue where using the prebuilt binary
releases on older versions of GNU/Linux led to failures when linking programs
that used cgo. Only Linux users who hit this issue need to update.
