Adding Rabbit maintainer just FYI.

Comment 3 David A. Cafaro 2015-04-24 15:54:16 UTC
Just checking in on the status of this patch?

Comment 4 David A. Cafaro 2015-04-29 13:16:36 UTC
Looking upstream it appears a patch for this was added in Release 17.5 and later.


"OTP-12420    Application(s): ssl

               *** POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY ***

               Add padding check for TLS-1.0 to remove Poodle
               vulnerability from TLS 1.0, also add the option
               padding_check. This option only affects TLS-1.0
               connections and if set to false it disables the block
               cipher padding check to be able to interoperate with
               legacy software.

  OTP-12458    Application(s): ssl

               Add support for TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV used to prevent
               undesired TLS version downgrades. If used by a client
               that is vulnerable to the POODLE attack, and the server
               also supports TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV, the attack can be

I have not found a back port to the current Release 14 Beta 4 in the repos.

Do we have any status on a fix for this?

Comment 5 David A. Cafaro 2015-05-06 17:05:59 UTC
Need a status update on this, are there plans to patch?

Comment 6 Richard W.M. Jones 2015-05-06 17:15:27 UTC
You probably want to ask the Rabbit maintainer.

Comment 7 David A. Cafaro 2015-05-28 01:24:00 UTC
Ping?  Need to get this patched.

Comment 8 Peter Lemenkov 2015-05-28 18:59:39 UTC
I'll fix it soon (before or during this weekend).

Comment 9 David A. Cafaro 2015-06-04 14:10:11 UTC
How goes the patching work?

Comment 10 David A. Cafaro 2015-06-11 01:43:25 UTC
Been another week, are you working on it?

Comment 11 David A. Cafaro 2015-08-05 13:57:53 UTC
Any word on the update for this?

Sorry still don't have much time for that. If someone can help with backporting that woiuld be very appreciated.

I'll take a stab at it.  I just requested commit access in pkgdb for erlang, so I'll need you or someone else to approve it.

Comment 14 John Eckersberg 2015-08-06 19:29:44 UTC
Rich, can you approve my commit ACLs for EPEL6/7, looks like Peter can only approve for the Fedora branches:


Comment 15 Richard W.M. Jones 2015-08-06 20:13:29 UTC
That should be done now.

Comment 16 John Eckersberg 2015-08-07 15:53:06 UTC
I backported the patch from OTP 17 -> R16B03-1, which is what is in EPEL7, and it's currently building.  I'll submit the update when it's done.

EPEL6 is on R14B, which I suspect is probably going to be a much more involved, if not nearly impossible backport.  I'm going to go look at it now, but there is a high probability that I am going to leave EPEL6 as-is unless somebody really really really wants it.
