PostPosted: Thu 06 Dec 2018, 08:46    Post subject: gnutls and nettle update  

Both of these were updated by slackware yesterday Dec. 5, 2018.

For AtomicPup-XIX use the 'Slackware14.2 i586' version.

Highlight and paste the link in a new tab.
Click YES in Yellow box, and OK when loading and completed.
When finished with both, close browser and disconnect from internet.
Navigate ROX-filer to /usr/lib and open
The following symlinks must be made
Remove nettle4.7 and symlink from nettle6.5 (right-click --> Link) back to 4.7, typing 4.7 into the address box.
Remove libgnutls28.43.0 and symlink libgnutls30.23.0 as above.
Check libgnutls-openssl for version 27.0.2

At this point navigate to /usr/doc to remove the doc files.
Then /root/.packages (hidden file) to move the new file-lists into the builtin folder. You may remove the older versions if needed.

Close ROX-filer and all other items and perform a shutdown.
After 5 minutes restart, and reconnect to internet as needed.

Regards
8Geee

PostPosted: Sat 05 Jan 2019, 23:26    Post subject: mp3 and mp4 downloads  

If you are having trouble downloading at YouTube or other sites, nic007 has passed along this site as a fine alternative. One can select mp3 or mp4. The mp3 can have the compression altered (128K, 192K, 320K at least). I am not sure about video size yet but usually 360p or 720p is offered at YouTube.

This link will be included with the default bookmarks next update. You can simply add it now by saving your current bookmarks, then go to ~/my-applications/MyFiles to reload the default bookmark2 file, add the new link, and Save As HTML to the default location above. Then Import your original bookmarks.

Regards and thanks again to nic007

Hey @8Geee the torrent file on archive.org fails when I load it into my rtorrent instance, the tracker returns that the torrent is not valid or authorized on that tracker. Can you double-check? Was successfully able to download it by hand but wanted to get the torrented archive.

PostPosted: Thu 28 Mar 2019, 01:06    Post subject: gnutls update  

Slackware has released a security update for gnutls. This is to be done at slackware dot com -->security advisories --> 2019

Though not directly applicable to the default AtomicPup-XIX,
if you have updated your choice of browser, and it accepts TLS 1.3 (FireFox 50 or newer, for example), then this update directly affects AtomicPup-XIX.

I will opine that this should be done anyway, as the update protects any future decisions made concerning browser, and puppy's own internal security in selecting TLS1.3 certs. /MHO

There is one symlink needed in usr/lib
remove libgnutls.so.30.23.0 then
symlink the 30.23.2 version back to the 30.23.0

The root/.packages file should have this update list moved to the builtin folder.

A brief look at the problem.

Regards
8Geee

PostPosted: Fri 24 May 2019, 20:36    Post subject: rdesktop WARNING  

I need to pass this WARNING on...

Do not upgrade rdesktop, the listed Slackware14.0 version WILL borque puppy- it WILL NOT BOOT.

In fact its not really needed UNLESS using VLC as a youtube server to stream vids.

The current rdesktop can be removed using the file list in /root/.packages

Regards
8Geee

PostPosted: Wed 05 Jun 2019, 16:31    Post subject: TLS1.2 security  

Recently it has been discovered and announced that certain TLS1.2 encryption schemes are vunerable to cracking attempts. In an indirect way, this is related to derivatives of Meltdown/Spectre.

AtomicPup-XIX uses two of these schemes, and the Qualys Client-Side Test has affirmed this with a "WEAK" rating (unsuitable for use). Since this is encryption scheme AND there IS hyperthreading of ANY TYPE involved, Firefox27, or whatever you have installed, needs to FALSE these schemes, so they are not selected.

DISCONNECT FROM THE INTERNET
Oen Firefox and in Firefox address bar type about:config
Click I'll be careful
In the search bar type ssl
scroll down the listing to these two consecutive entries

security.ssl3.ecdhe_ecdsa_aes_128_sha
security.ssl3.ecdhe_ecdsa_aes_256_sha

Double click each one to make FALSE
Close the Browser
Click Menu --> Shutdown --> Restart Graphical Server
Upon the Refresh you may reconnect to internet

Regards
8Geee

PostPosted: Thu 18 Jul 2019, 18:47    Post subject: CURL 7.65.2  

Slackware has released an update for CURL to version 7.65.2
There are no symlinks needed, and usr/docs may be removed.

In Other News: AtomicPup-XIX is rather stable as you may have noticed. Just a tweak here and there, primarily relating to CURL. I don't see the need for an update, unless a major revision comes along.

Regards
8Geee

PostPosted: Wed 18 Sep 2019, 22:35    Post subject:  

There are two recent security patches to pass along.

The first is curl from 7.65.2 --> 7.66.
After the downloading as pet package, the old libcurl7.5.0 needs to be deleted with a symlink from libcurl7.6.0 back to 7.5.0 The usr/doc file can be removed if not needed, and the root/.packages file needs the new txt file moved to builtin with removal of old file.

Second is expat2.2.2 --> 2.2.8
In the same manner as above, delete libexpat1.6.4 with symlink from libexpat 1.6.10 back to 1.6.4. The doc file can be deleted and the root.package file moved with deleetion of old version.

Regards
8Geee

a note here that if not using rdesktop, to remove it using the root/.packages file as guide.

PostPosted: Thu 07 Nov 2019, 14:41    Post subject: pcap and tcpdump updates  

Ooops, I've been remiss about posting this update. I have installed them, and been running without problems for a month now. Embarassed
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

At slackware security updates is a laundry-list of corrections for tcpdump. However, one must first update pcap to handle the new corrections.

The pcap update is here. Install this as a Puppy Package by clicking YES in the yellow box. Answer both questions OK when they appear.

In usr/lib delete libpcap.so.1.8.1 and make a symlink from the new 1.9.1 version back to 1.8.1 by altering the "9" to "8".

Next is tcpdump...
The update for tcpdump 4.9.3 is here. Click Yes in the yellow box, and OK when asked.

In usr/sbin delete the tcpdump.4.9.2 version and make a symlink back to 4.9.2 by altering the "3" to "2". Make a second symlink to the 4.9.3 version by removing the /usr from the path. (If an app or program erroneously calls /sbin instead of /usr/sbin)

When this completed, the /usr/docs files can be removed and the /root/.packages file can be updated by moving the two new text files to the builtin folder with removal of the old version.

A bit lengthy to write, not hard to do

Regards
8Geee
