Comment 2 Carl George 🤠 2023-01-24 03:33:35 UTC
The parent bug and upstream report indicate that the vulnerability exists prior to version 2.2.4.

epel9 has caddy 2.4.6, which vendors yaml 2.4.0, so it's not affected.


epel8 doesn't have caddy, so it's not affected.

epel7 has caddy 1.0.3, which vendors yaml 2.2.2, so it is affected.

Comment 6 Carl George 🤠 2023-08-18 04:13:52 UTC
For posterity, this update ended up being broken and nobody (myself included) caught it while it was in the testing repo.  It's no longer possible to build caddy v1 with the golang that is in EPEL 7.  The choice was between an incompatible update to caddy v2 (major breaking changes with a new config file format) or retiring the package.  With only 10 months left until EPEL 7 is retired, I decided to go with the latter.  See this email for more details.
