Linus Torvalds Injects Tabs To Thwart Kconfig Parsers Not Correctly Handling Them

Slashdot Linux - Pon, 04/15/2024 - 23:10
Michael Larabel reports via Phoronix: Within yesterday's Linux 6.9-rc4 release is an interesting little nugget by Linus Torvalds to battle Kconfig parsers that can't correctly handle tabs but rather just assume spaces for whitespace for this kernel configuration format. Due to a patch having been queued last week to replace a tab with a space character in the kernel tracing Kconfig file, Linus Torvalds decided to take matters into his own hand for Kconfig parsers that can't deal with tabs... Torvalds authored a patch to intentionally add some tabs of his own into Kconfig for throwing off any out-of-tree/third-party parsers that can't correctly handle them. Torvalds added these intentional hidden tabs to the common Kconfig file for handling page sizes for the kernel. Thus sure to cause dramatic and noticeable breakage for any parsers not having tabs correctly.

OpenSSF and OpenJS warn about social-engineering attacks

LWN.net - Pon, 04/15/2024 - 17:48
The Open Source Security Foundation and the OpenJS Foundation have jointly posted a warning about XZ-like social-engineering attacks after OpenJS was seemingly targeted.

The OpenJS Foundation Cross Project Council received a suspicious series of emails with similar messages, bearing different names and overlapping GitHub-associated emails. These emails implored OpenJS to take action to update one of its popular JavaScript projects to "address any critical vulnerabilities," yet cited no specifics. The email author(s) wanted OpenJS to designate them as a new maintainer of the project despite having little prior involvement.

[$] Cleaning up after BPF exceptions

LWN.net - Pon, 04/15/2024 - 15:56

Kumar Kartikeya Dwivedi has been working to add support for exceptions to BPF since mid-2023. In July, Dwivedi posted the first patch set in this effort, which adds support for basic stack unwinding. In February 2024, he posted the second patch set aimed at letting the kernel release resources held by the BPF program when an exception occurs. This makes exceptions usable in many more contexts.
