Internet Downtime

There was a loud bang from my right as I sat in the work room this afternoon and all the power went off. After resetting the circuit breaker in the garage, everything came back up except the HP Microserver I use as a router, firewall and for various Internet-facing services. Figuring it was the power supply, I found that an official HP replacement part (620827-001) would set me back about as much as I'd paid for the whole server (thanks to a £100 cashback offer at the time), that is if I could find a supplier that had any in stock. It seemed that the PSU was a standard 1U unit so I followed a path trodden by Chris Stark in the past and ordered a 250W FSP FSP250-50GUB power supply from Scan (who I've ordered with before) for about £37 including VAT and delivery. It's due to arrive on Tuesday. Update: The PSU arrived on schedule but the wires for the 24-pin (actually 20+4 pins on two connectors) ATX connector weren't long enough to reach the system board connector if either the PSU or system board were in their final fitted positions. I'm going to get a 15cm ATX power extension lead (£2.99 from Maplins) to resolve this issue.

In the meantime, I've had to cannibalize a regular ATX PSU (520W) from my son's computer and connected that up to the Microserver with no case to get us all back online. Can't be doing with no Internet, can we? It was bad enough for 3 hours today!

Local Packages

  • Updated perl-BerkeleyDB to 0.54 as per the Fedora version

Monday 11th November 2013

Fedora Project

  • Updated perl-IO-Socket-SSL to 1.958 in Rawhide:

  • Lots of behaviour changes for more secure defaults:
    • Behaviour change: make default cipher list more secure, especially:

      • No longer support MD5 by default (broken)
      • No longer support anonymous authentication by default (vulnerable to man in the middle attacks)
      • Prefer ECDHE/DHE ciphers and add necessary ECDH curve and DH keys, so that it uses by default forward secrecy, if underlying Net::SSLeay/openssl supports it

      • Move RC4 to the end, i.e. 3DES is preferred (BEAST attack should hopefully have been fixed and now RC4 is considered less safe than 3DES)
      • Default SSL_honor_cipher_order to 1, e.g. when used as server it tries to get the best cipher even if the client prefers other ciphers; please note that this might break connections with older, less secure implementations, in which case revert to 'ALL:!LOW:!EXP:!aNULL' or so

    • Behaviour change: SSL_cipher_list now gets set on context, not SSL object, and thus gets reused if context gets reused; please note that using SSL_cipher_list together with SSL_reuse_ctx no longer has any effect on the ciphers of the context

    • Rework hostname verification schemes:
      • Add RFC names as scheme (e.g. 'rfc2818', ...)

      • Add SIP, SNMP, syslog, netconf, GIST
      • Behaviour change: fix SMTP - now accept wildcards in CN and subjectAltName

      • Behaviour change: fix IMAP, POP3, ACAP, NNTP - now accept wildcards in CN

    • Behaviour change: anywhere wildcards like www* now match only 'www1', 'www2' etc. but not 'www'

    • Anywhere wildcards like x* are no longer applied to IDNA names (which start with 'xn--')

    • Fix crash of Utils::CERT_free

    • Support TLSv11, TLSv12 as handshake protocols
    • Fixed t/core.t: test used cipher_list of HIGH, which includes anonymous authorization; with the DH param given by default since 1.956, old versions of openssl (like 0.9.8k) used cipher ADH-AES256-SHA (e.g. anonymous authorization) instead of AES256-SHA and thus the check for the peer certificate failed (because ADH does not exchange certificates) - fixed by explicitly specifying HIGH:!aNULL as cipher (CPAN RT#90221)

    • Cleaned up tests:
      • Remove ssl_settings.req and 02settings.t, because all tests now create a simple socket at and thus global settings are no longer needed

      • Some tests did not have use strict(!); fixed it

      • Removed special handling for older Net::SSLeay versions that are less than our minimum requirement

      • Some syntax enhancements: removed some SSL_version and SSL_cipher_list options where they were not really needed

    • Clean-up: remove workaround for old IO::Socket::INET6 but instead require at least version 2.55, which is now 5 years old

    • Fix t/session.t to work with older openssl versions (CPAN RT#90240)

Local Packages

  • Updated perl-Archive-Zip to 1.33:

    • Experimental Unicode in file/dir names
    • Add decryption support
    • Updated Perl dependency to 5.006 to reflect implicit dependencies in the code exposed by Perl::MinimumVersion xt test

    • Set compressed size and uncompressed size of an entry to 0 if either of them is 0 (CPAN RT#68446)

    • Added $VERSION to crc32

    • Unlink temporary files generated by tempFile (CPAN RT#89777)

    • Various minor bug fixes
    • Typo fixes (CPAN RT#59102, CPAN RT#86600)

  • Updated perl-IO-Socket-SSL to 1.958 as per the Fedora version

  • Updated perl-Path-FindDev to 0.4.2:

    • Minimum perl declared is now 5.8, and tested to work on 5.8; however, the version scheme is x.y.z still, which means if you want to depend on a specific version in Perl code, you'll need a recent enough to make it work

  • Updated perl-Text-CSV_XS to 1.02:

    • Add example for reading only a single column
    • Don't store NULL in _ERROR_INPUT (CPAN RT#86217)

    • Prevent double-decode in csv-check
    • Add decode_utf8 attribute (default is true)

Tuesday 12th November 2013

Fedora Project

  • Updated gtkwave to 3.3.52 in F-20 and Rawhide:

    • Added LZ4 as compression type for FST; when enabled with --fourpack in vcd2fst, this compresses both signal data and the hierarchy using LZ4

    • Added WLF support via wlf2vcd; to use, specify -o at the command line (e.g., gtkwave -o test.wlf)

    • Changed left/right arrow function in signal/wave windows to find next transition of selected signal(s)
    • Re-enabled DnD scroll beyond top/bottom of Signals pane

    • Added debounce for baseline (middle) mouse button
    • Another partial VCD loader fix
    • Now use libcomdlg32 file requesters on MinGW

    • Fix in FsdbReader interface for version 1.x files

    • Many warnings fixes found from gcc -Wextra flag

    • Fixed thread-unsafe static allocations in fstapi.c

Wednesday 13th November 2013

Fedora Project

  • Updated perl-IO-Socket-SSL to 1.960 in Rawhide:

    • Only documentation enhancements:
      • Clarify with text and example code, that within event loops not only select/poll should be used, but also pending has to be called

      • Better introduction into SSL; at least mention anonymous authentication as something you don't want and should take care with the right cipher
      • Make it more clear that it's better not to change the cipher list unless you really know what you're doing

Local Packages

  • Updated perl-IO-Socket-SSL to 1.960 as per the Fedora version

  • Updated perl-TAP-Harness and perl-Test-Harness to 3.30:

    • Respect PERL5LIB in tainting source handler test

    • Use base instead of parent: this dist is used for testing all other modules, so it should avoid having any non-core prerequisites; having parent as a prereq leads to a circular dependency of parent -> Test::More -> Test::Harness

    • Various POD fixes
    • Don't localize all of %ENV in harness.t

    • Give TAP::Harness::Beyond a unique NAME

Thursday 14th November 2013

Saturday 16th November 2013

Local Packages

  • Updated perl-PPIx-Regexp to 0.035:

    • Properly handle multi-character modifiers like /ee; we now handle /eie as being the same as /eei

    • Properly handle \g and \k back references that do not correspond to an actual capture group; they are now re-blessed into the unknown token, and counted as errors

    • Add method error() to PPIx::Regexp::Element; this should return an error message when the element is in error - normally when it has been blessed into the unknown token or structure

    • Add method modifier_asserted() to PPIx::Regexp::Element; this walks the parse tree backwards to determine if the given modifier is in effect for the element

Sunday 17th November 2013

Fedora Project

  • Updated perl-Software-License to 0.103008 in F-20 and Rawhide:

    • Prefer META.json over META.yml

    • Don't merge prereqs from meta to mymeta

Wednesday 20th November 2013

Local Packages

  • Updated dovecot to 2.2.8:

    • Mail cache lookups work for the mail being saved, which improves performance by avoiding the need to parse the mail multiple times when using some plugins (e.g. mail_log)

    • Mail cache works for recently cached data also with in-memory indexes
    • imapc: many performance improvements, especially when working with dsync; also added imapc_feature=fetch-headers, which allows using FETCH BODY.PEEK[HEADER.FIELDS (..)] to avoid reading the entire header

    • mail_location = ..:FULLDIRNAME=dbox-Mails is the same as :DIRNAME=dbox-Mails, but it will also be used for :INDEX and :CONTROL directories (it should have worked this way from the beginning, but can't be changed any more without breaking existing installations)

    • Fixed infinite loop in message parsing if message ends with "--boundary" and CR (without LF); messages saved via SMTP/LMTP can't trigger this, because messages must end with an "LF.", but a user could trigger this for him/herself though

    • lmtp: client was sometimes disconnected before all the output was sent to it

    • imap_zlib plugin caused crashes during client disconnection in v2.2.7

    • replicator: database wasn't being exported to disk every 15 minutes as it should have; instead it was being imported, causing "doveadm replicator remove" commands to not work very well

  • I also added a patch from upstream to fix whitespace removal failures that caused pigeonhole test failures
