Done for mga6!
Comment 2 David Walser 2018-02-17 17:06:12 CET
Thanks David!


Updated tomcat-native package fixes security vulnerability:

When parsing the AIA-Extension field of a client certificate, Apache Tomcat
Native did not correctly handle fields longer than 127 bytes. The result of the
parsing error was to skip the OCSP check. It was therefore possible for client
certificates that should have been rejected (if the OCSP check had been made) to
be accepted. Users not using OCSP checks are not affected by this vulnerability


Updated packages in core/updates_testing:

from tomcat-native-1.2.16-1.mga6.src.rpm

Comment 3 Herman Viaene 2018-02-22 14:33:19 CET
MGA6-32 on Dell Latitude D600 Mate
No installation issues
# urmpq --whatrequires tomcat-native
Had a look what guacamole is, looks interesting, but too heavy on this laptop. If I get rid of the possible updates on this 32 machine, I'd like to give it a go on MGA6-64.

MGA6-64 on Lenovo B50 Plasma
Installed guacamole. Expected this to draw in tomcat-native as the reverse is indicated (see Comment 3 above), but that didn't happen. Installed tomcat-native afterwarts. All well til then.
Tried to run tomcat (is required by guacamole), is OK. Starting guacd brings me into configuration problems and guacamole documentation did not offer much help, neither googling on the errors. Spent some hours on this and gave up.
If the higher powers decide a clean install and no obvious adverse effects, is good enough, I agree to OK this update.
Comment 5 Lewis Smith 2018-02-27 21:51:28 CET
Poking M6 x64
No previous package-equivalent updates.

BEFORE the update: tomcat-native-1.2.12-1.mga6
against which I had used Tomcat - if that is relevant.

AFTER the update: tomcat-native-1.2.16-1.mga6
Tomcat itself still works normally. For the rest, I agree with Herman that 'guacamole' is too heavy to play with to test-drive 'tomcat-native'.

On the basis of a clean update, & Herman's clean install, update OK.
