Upstream changelog for dosbox-0.74-3 is at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/dosbox/files/dosbox/0.74-3/
Changelog extract of 0.74-3:
A security release for DOSBox 0.74:
- Fixed that a very long line inside a bat file would overflow the parsing
buffer (CVE-2019-7165 by Alexandre Bartel)
- Added a basic permission system so that a program running inside DOSBox
can't access the contents of /proc (e.g. /proc/self/mem) when / or /proc
were (to be) mounted (CVE-2019-12594 by Alexandre Bartel)
- Several other fixes for out of bounds access and buffer overflows.
I've just double-checked the tarball for DOSBox 0.74-3 and it contains both:
which are mentioned as the diffs to backport for both recent CVEs in https://sourceforge.net/p/dosbox/bugs/508/
Fedora 30 got the complete DOSBox 0.74-3 update on 2019-7-4:
and it hit stable on 2019-7-8.
Yes this checks out, thank you for noticing and I'm sorry for the confusion.
I created fedora-29 only tracker for this issue, which has the older version dosbox-0.74.2-2.
So it's good to track CVEs across multiple branches, but Fedora 29 already has the fix in updates-testing:
just like EPEL7 has:
Both would update these distributions to 0.74-3.
Both were opened on 2019-7-4 (same day as the update for f30.
They are both missing karma proving there has been no community testing.
Could you make sure to check available updates in Bodhi before opening new bugs please?
Thank you for explaining that and for the link. I surely will try to check that before opening new trackers!
Thanks Marian, much appreciated.
I'm closing this bug too.
