Hi,

You have probably heard of the now famous "heartblead" bug of the OpenSSL
library.
http://heartbleed.com/

StrawberryPerl is bundled with a binary of the OpenSSL library so I'm
wondering if StrawberryPerl is affected by the bug.

I had a look at the release notes of StrawberryPerl to look for the version
number of the OpenSSL and all versions of StrawberryPerl since at least
5.16.0.1 have an OpenSSL in the range affected by the heartbleed bug.

It would be helpful to have an official statement from the StrawberryPerl
team regarding this issue and to display it prominently on the
StrawberryPerl.com page.

    Hi,

    you can get updated openssl binaries from:
    - http://strawberryperl.com/package/kmx/64_libs/gcc47-2014Q1/
    - http://strawberryperl.com/package/kmx/32_libs/gcc47-2014Q1/

    I am considering releasing strawberry perl 5.18.2.2 (with new openssl)
    before the end of April.

    Does it matter if you are only using client-side SSL, if you are not running a server with Strawberry but just connecting to sites?

    It is not recommended to use such online services. Some really try to
    capture as much as they can from your system.

    Instead, use an open source offline solution that you run yourself for your
    machine : pacemaker.
    https://github.com/Lekensteyn/pacemaker

    I verified that openssl bundled with StrawberryPerl 5.18.2.1 is vulnerable.
    You can reproduce it like this (while pacemaker.py is running):
    C:\strawberry\c\bin\openssl s_client -connect 127.0.0.1:4433
  • Matthew Persico at Apr 16, 2014 at 8:08 pm
    Any reason why 5.18.2.2 excludes Math::Pari?

    Math::Pari is used (a couple of levels down) by Net::SFTP. Net::SFTP is
    the reason I converted TO Strawberry about three weeks ago.

    Please advise...

    The reason is simple - it does not build anymore as it is not able to find
    required pari source tarball at ftp://megrez.math.u-bordeaux.fr/pub/pari/unix/

    Try: cpanm Math::Pari -v

    ...
    Getting GP/PARI from ftp://megrez.math.u-bordeaux.fr/pub/pari/unix/
    Not in this directory, now chdir('OLD')...
    Did not find any file matching
    /((?:.*\/)?pari\W*(?!2\.(?:[3-9]|\d\d+)\.)(\d+\.\d+\.\d+).*\.t(?:ar\.)?gz)$/ via
    FTP
    ...
    Not in this directory, trying
    `ftp://megrez.math.u-bordeaux.fr/pub/pari/unix/OLD/'...

    FTP.
    ...

    In January 2014 the installation worked so that's why it is included in
    5.18.2.1 and not in 5.18.2.2

    Another trouble with Math::Pari (in fact it is a trouble with underlying
    pari library) is that it has never built correctly with 64bit compiler on
    MS Windows.

    Suggestion - maybe you can pull the file that is being fetched (I assume
    its pari217.exe) and install it locally once and for all? If the pari lib
    is found locally, will the build bother to attempt to go out and get it? I
    worry that someday, pari217.exe will disappear.

    I have my own local directories that cpanp knows about. I'm going to try
    and put Math-Pari-2.01080605_patched.tar.gz in one of them and see if I
    cannot coax cpanp to build locally. If not, Illl cpanm from your repo.

    Can I assume that when 5.18.2.3 or whatever the next version is, the patch
    will be in the main distribution?

    Did not find GP/PARI build directory around.

    Non-interactive session, autofetching...



    Getting GP/PARI from ftp://megrez.math.u-bordeaux.fr/pub/pari/unix/

    Not in this directory, now chdir('OLD/2.1')...

    Available golden versions: `2.1.0 2.1.4 2.1.6 2.1.3 2.1.2 2.1.5 2.1.1
    2.1.7'

    Latest supported golden is `pari-2.1.7.tgz'

    Picking golden version 2.1.7, file pari-2.1.7.tgz

    Downloading
    `ftp://megrez.math.u-bordeaux.fr/pub/pari/unix/pari-2.1.7.tgz'...

    Downloaded...

    Extracting...

    gzip -dc pari-2.1.7.tgz | tar -xvf -

    and on and on....

    thanks to kmx and jan for all your help

    I have my own local directories that cpanp knows about. I'm going to try
    and put Math-Pari-2.01080605_patched.tar.gz in one of them and see if I
    cannot coax cpanp to build locally. If not, Illl cpanm from your repo.

    Can I assume that when 5.18.2.3 or whatever the next version is, the patch
    will be in the main distribution?

    Thanks.

    Excellent, I have put patched version at
    http://strawberryperl.com/package/kmx/perl-modules-patched/Math-Pari-2.01080605_patched.tar.gz


    Simply run:

    cpanm

    Folks, I just ftped to the link below and found pari.2.7.0.tar.gz. Isn't that
    what we're looking for or am I missing something?

    From http://cpansearch.perl.org/src/ILYAZ/Math-Pari-2.01080605/README:
    (2.01080* still fully supports only 2.1.7, but mostly works with 2.3.* too.)
    There is a dev release with support for 2.3, but no indication that
    anyone has ever managed to build with 2.7. Good luck! :)
