Description Stef Walter 2013-03-18 18:28:58 UTC
p11-kit is a PKCS#11 module that runs in various contexts. It uses the strndup() function as provided by libc. firefox in f19, exports a broken strndup() function, which does not null terminate its result.

Symptom: When you use p11-kit (with its internal persintence format), you see lines containing corrupted strings, like this:

p11-kit: distrust-diginotar-root-ca.p11-kit: [p11-kit-object-v1]]: unrecognized or invalid section header
p11-kit: distrust-geotrust-ssl-ca.p11-kit: [p11-kit-object-v1]oved:]: unrecognized or invalid section header

This has been fixed upstream at: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=826171

Martin, could you please pick up the patch from the upstream bug and do Firefox builds for both Fedora 18 and Rawhide? It blocks our testing for a new Fedora feature. Thanks in advance.

Comment 2 Martin Stransky 2013-03-19 07:38:13 UTC
Added to xulrunner-19.0.2-3. Do you need to submit it as an update for Fedoras?

We need an update for Fedora 19 for sure (since rawhide has branched). I think that an update for Fedora 18 would also be nice.
