Description Ben Woods freebsd_committer 2018-01-14 01:54:59 UTC
A vulnerability has been discovered in net-p2p/transmission-daemon.
https://github.com/transmission/transmission/pull/468

There are a few activities required for this:
1. Get initial VuXML vulnerability added to alert users
2. Get patch into ports tree that fixes this issue
3. Update VuXML vulnerability with further details once discovered (e.g. once CVE is assigned and new version of transmission is released encompassing the fix).

Patch to fix transmission-daemon DNS rebinding vulnerability

This patch is taken from here and adapted to work with FreeBSD ports system:
https://github.com/transmission/transmission/pull/468#issuecomment-357098126

One thing that is not included with this patch, is bumping the PORTREVISION of all affected transmission components. At a minimum, this would be net-p2p/transmission-daemon, but could include others given a number of the transmission ports are SLAVE PORTS of net-p2p/transmission-cli and use the same DISTFILE.
Comment 3 Chris Rees freebsd_committer 2018-01-14 16:32:24 UTC
(In reply to Ben Woods from comment #2)

Thanks a lot! If you've got it open, yes please commit.  You'll only need to bump -daemon as that's the only one with the issue.

  net-p2p/transmission-daemon: Mitigate DNS rebinding attack

  Incorporate upstream pull request 468, proposed by Tavis Ormandy from
  Google Project Zero, which mitigates this attack by requiring a host
  whitelist for requests that cannot be proven to be secure, but it can
  be disabled if a user does not want security.

This has now been merged to 2018Q1 now also. Thanks crees for your fast approval, and to swills for a heads up about using pkg-message to notify pkg users.
