Comment 2 David Walser 2018-04-14 16:08:53 CEST
Patched version also submitted by Shlomi to fix this for Mageia 6.


Updated corosync packages fix security vulnerability:

An integer overflow leading to an out-of-bound read was found in
authenticate_nss_2_3() in Corosync. An attacker could craft a malicious
packet that would lead to a denial of service (CVE-2018-1084).


Updated packages in core/updates_testing:

from corosync-2.3.5-2.1.mga6.src.rpm

MGA6-32 on Dell Latitude D600 MATE
No installation issues. left devel out.
This is about "high availability clusters", difficult to apply to this little lappy. Anyway, tried the simpliest commands I found:
$ corosync-blackbox 
/usr/bin/corosync-blackbox: regel 32: corosync-cmapctl: opdracht niet gevonden
/usr/bin/corosync-blackbox: regel 33: corosync-cmapctl: opdracht niet gevonden
/usr/bin/corosync-blackbox: regel 34: qb-blackbox: opdracht niet gevonden
meaning : command not found
Something missing ???
# corosync
error   [MAIN  ] Can't read file /etc/corosync/corosync.conf reason = (No such file or directory)
error   [MAIN  ] Corosync Cluster Engine exiting with status 8 at main.c:1208.
File is not there, but a /etc/corosync/corosync.conf.example is, and that needs manual editing to get a valid conf file, according a tutorial I found googling.
Giving up here.
