+ Tor 0.3.0.4-rc fixes some remaining bugs, large and small, in the
+ 0.3.0 release series, and introduces a few reliability features to
+ keep them from coming back.
+ This is the first release candidate in the Tor 0.3.0 series. If we
+ find no new bugs or regressions here, the first stable 0.3.0 release
+ will be nearly identical to it.
+ o Major bugfixes (bridges):
+ - When the same bridge is configured multiple times with the same
+ identity, but at different address:port combinations, treat those
+ bridge instances as separate guards. This fix restores the ability
+ of clients to configure the same bridge with multiple pluggable
+ transports. Fixes bug 21027; bugfix on 0.3.0.1-alpha.
+ o Major bugfixes (hidden service directory v3):
+ - Stop crashing on a failed v3 hidden service descriptor lookup
+ failure. Fixes bug 21471; bugfixes on tor-0.3.0.1-alpha.
+ o Major bugfixes (parsing):
+ - When parsing a malformed content-length field from an HTTP
+ message, do not read off the end of the buffer. This bug was a
+ potential remote denial-of-service attack against Tor clients and
+ relays. A workaround was released in October 2016, to prevent this
+ bug from crashing Tor. This is a fix for the underlying issue,
+ which should no longer matter (if you applied the earlier patch).
+ Fixes bug 20894; bugfix on 0.2.0.16-alpha. Bug found by fuzzing
+ using AFL (http://lcamtuf.coredump.cx/afl/).
+ - Fix an integer underflow bug when comparing malformed Tor
+ versions. This bug could crash Tor when built with
+ --enable-expensive-hardening, or on Tor 0.2.9.1-alpha through Tor
+ 0.2.9.8, which were built with -ftrapv by default. In other cases
+ it was harmless. Part of TROVE-2017-001. Fixes bug 21278; bugfix
+ on 0.0.8pre1. Found by OSS-Fuzz.
+ o Minor feature (protocol versioning):
+ - Add new protocol version for proposal 224. HSIntro now advertises
+ version "3-4" and HSDir version "1-2". Fixes ticket 20656.
+ o Minor features (directory authorities):
+ - Directory authorities now reject descriptors that claim to be
+ malformed versions of Tor. Helps prevent exploitation of
+ bug 21278.
+ - Reject version numbers with components that exceed INT32_MAX.
+ Otherwise 32-bit and 64-bit platforms would behave inconsistently.
+ Fixes bug 21450; bugfix on 0.0.8pre1.
+ o Minor features (geoip):
+ - Update geoip and geoip6 to the February 8 2017 Maxmind GeoLite2
+ Country database.
+ o Minor features (reliability, crash):
+ - Try better to detect problems in buffers where they might grow (or
+ think they have grown) over 2 GB in size. Diagnostic for
+ bug 21369.
+ o Minor features (testing):
+ - During 'make test-network-all', if tor logs any warnings, ask
+ chutney to output them. Requires a recent version of chutney with
+ the 21572 patch. Implements 21570.
+ o Minor bugfixes (certificate expiration time):
+ - Avoid using link certificates that don't become valid till some
+ time in the future. Fixes bug 21420; bugfix on 0.2.4.11-alpha
+ o Minor bugfixes (code correctness):
+ - Repair a couple of (unreachable or harmless) cases of the risky
+ comparison-by-subtraction pattern that caused bug 21278.
+ - Remove a redundant check for the UseEntryGuards option from the
+ options_transition_affects_guards() function. Fixes bug 21492;
+ bugfix on 0.3.0.1-alpha.
+ o Minor bugfixes (directory mirrors):
+ - Allow relays to use directory mirrors without a DirPort: these
+ relays need to be contacted over their ORPorts using a begindir
+ connection. Fixes one case of bug 20711; bugfix on 0.2.8.2-alpha.
+ - Clarify the message logged when a remote relay is unexpectedly
+ missing an ORPort or DirPort: users were confusing this with a
+ local port. Fixes another case of bug 20711; bugfix
+ on 0.2.8.2-alpha.
+ o Minor bugfixes (guards):
+ - Don't warn about a missing guard state on timeout-measurement
+ circuits: they aren't supposed to be using guards. Fixes an
+ instance of bug 21007; bugfix on 0.3.0.1-alpha.
+ - Silence a BUG() warning when attempting to use a guard whose
+ descriptor we don't know, and make this scenario less likely to
+ happen. Fixes bug 21415; bugfix on 0.3.0.1-alpha.
+ o Minor bugfixes (hidden service):
+ - Pass correct buffer length when encoding legacy ESTABLISH_INTRO
+ cells. Previously, we were using sizeof() on a pointer, instead of
+ the real destination buffer. Fortunately, that value was only used
+ to double-check that there was enough room--which was already
+ enforced elsewhere. Fixes bug 21553; bugfix on 0.3.0.1-alpha.
+ o Minor bugfixes (testing):
+ - Fix Raspbian build issues related to missing socket errno in
+ test_util.c. Fixes bug 21116; bugfix on tor-0.2.8.2. Patch
+ by "hein".
+ - Rename "make fuzz" to "make test-fuzz-corpora", since it doesn't
+ actually fuzz anything. Fixes bug 21447; bugfix on 0.3.0.3-alpha.
+ - Use bash in src/test/test-network.sh. This ensures we reliably
+ call chutney's newer tools/test-network.sh when available. Fixes
+ bug 21562; bugfix on 0.2.9.1-alpha.
+ o Documentation:
+ - Small fixes to the fuzzing documentation. Closes ticket 21472.
