Changes in version 0.2.2.21-alpha - 2011-01-15
Tor 0.2.2.21-alpha includes all the patches from Tor 0.2.1.29, which
continues our recent code security audit work. The main fix resolves
a remote heap overflow vulnerability that can allow remote code
execution (CVE-2011-0427). Other fixes address a variety of assert
and crash bugs, most of which we think are hard to exploit remotely.
o Major bugfixes (security), also included in 0.2.1.29:
- Fix a heap overflow bug where an adversary could cause heap
corruption. This bug probably allows remote code execution
attacks. Reported by "debuger". Fixes CVE-2011-0427. Bugfix on
0.1.2.10-rc.
- Prevent a denial-of-service attack by disallowing any
zlib-compressed data whose compression factor is implausibly
high. Fixes part of bug 2324; reported by "doorss".
- Zero out a few more keys in memory before freeing them. Fixes
bug 2384 and part of bug 2385. These key instances found by
"cypherpunks", based on Andrew Case's report about being able
to find sensitive data in Tor's memory space if you have enough
permissions. Bugfix on 0.0.2pre9.
o Major bugfixes (crashes), also included in 0.2.1.29:
- Prevent calls to Libevent from inside Libevent log handlers.
This had potential to cause a nasty set of crashes, especially
if running Libevent with debug logging enabled, and running
Tor with a controller watching for low-severity log messages.
Bugfix on 0.1.0.2-rc. Fixes bug 2190.
- Add a check for SIZE_T_MAX to tor_realloc() to try to avoid
underflow errors there too. Fixes the other part of bug 2324.
- Fix a bug where we would assert if we ever had a
cached-descriptors.new file (or another file read directly into
memory) of exactly SIZE_T_CEILING bytes. Fixes bug 2326; bugfix
on 0.2.1.25. Found by doorss.
- Fix some potential asserts and parsing issues with grossly
malformed router caches. Fixes bug 2352; bugfix on Tor 0.2.1.27.
Found by doorss.
o Minor bugfixes (other), also included in 0.2.1.29:
- Fix a bug with handling misformed replies to reverse DNS lookup
requests in DNSPort. Bugfix on Tor 0.2.0.1-alpha. Related to a
bug reported by doorss.
- Fix compilation on mingw when a pthreads compatibility library
has been installed. (We don't want to use it, so we shouldn't
be including pthread.h.) Fixes bug 2313; bugfix on 0.1.0.1-rc.
- Fix a bug where we would declare that we had run out of virtual
addresses when the address space was only half-exhausted. Bugfix
on 0.1.2.1-alpha.
- Correctly handle the case where AutomapHostsOnResolve is set but
no virtual addresses are available. Fixes bug 2328; bugfix on
0.1.2.1-alpha. Bug found by doorss.
- Correctly handle wrapping around to when we run out of virtual
address space. Found by cypherpunks, bugfix on 0.2.0.5-alpha.
- The 0.2.1.28 tarball was missing src/common/OpenBSD_malloc_Linux.c
because we built it with a too-old version of automake. Thus that
release broke ./configure --enable-openbsd-malloc, which is popular
among really fast exit relays on Linux.
o Minor features, also included in 0.2.1.29:
- Update to the January 1 2011 Maxmind GeoLite Country database.
- Introduce output size checks on all of our decryption functions.
o Build changes, also included in 0.2.1.29:
- Tor does not build packages correctly with Automake 1.6 and earlier;
added a check to Makefile.am to make sure that we're building with
Automake 1.7 or later.
o Minor features, new in 0.2.2.21-alpha:
- Make sure to disable DirPort if running as a bridge. DirPorts aren't
used on bridges, and it makes bridge scanning somewhat easier.
- If writing the state file to disk fails, wait up to an hour before
retrying again, rather than trying again each second. Fixes bug
2346; bugfix on Tor 0.1.1.3-alpha.
- Make Libevent log messages get delivered to controllers later,
and not from inside the Libevent log handler. This prevents unsafe
reentrant Libevent calls while still letting the log messages
get through.
- Detect platforms that brokenly use a signed size_t, and refuse to
build there. Found and analyzed by doorss and rransom.
- Fix a bunch of compile warnings revealed by mingw with gcc 4.5.
Resolves bug 2314.
o Minor bugfixes, new in 0.2.2.21-alpha:
- Handle SOCKS messages longer than 128 bytes long correctly, rather
than waiting forever for them to finish. Fixes bug 2330; bugfix
on 0.2.0.16-alpha. Found by doorss.
- Add assertions to check for overflow in arguments to
base32_encode() and base32_decode(); fix a signed-unsigned
comparison there too. These bugs are not actually reachable in Tor,
but it's good to prevent future errors too. Found by doorss.
- Correctly detect failures to create DNS requests when using Libevent
versions before v2. (Before Libevent 2, we used our own evdns
implementation. Its return values for Libevent's evdns_resolve_*()
functions are not consistent with those from Libevent.) Fixes bug
2363; bugfix on 0.2.2.6-alpha. Found by "lodger".
o Documentation, new in 0.2.2.21-alpha:
- Document the default socks host and port (127.0.0.1:9050) for
tor-resolve.

Changes in version 0.2.2.20-alpha - 2010-12-17
Tor 0.2.2.20-alpha does some code cleanup to reduce the risk of remotely
exploitable bugs. We also fix a variety of other significant bugs,

Changes in version 0.2.1.27 - 2010-11-23
Yet another OpenSSL security patch broke its compatibility with Tor:
Tor 0.2.1.27 makes relays work with openssl 0.9.8p and 1.0.0.b. We
also took this opportunity to fix several crash bugs, integrate a new
directory authority, and update the bundled GeoIP database.
o Major bugfixes:
- Resolve an incompatibility with OpenSSL 0.9.8p and OpenSSL 1.0.0b:
No longer set the tlsext_host_name extension on server SSL objects;
but continue to set it on client SSL objects. Our goal in setting
it was to imitate a browser, not a vhosting server. Fixes bug 2204;
bugfix on 0.2.1.1-alpha.
- Do not log messages to the controller while shrinking buffer
freelists. Doing so would sometimes make the controller connection
try to allocate a buffer chunk, which would mess up the internals
of the freelist and cause an assertion failure. Fixes bug 1125;
fixed by Robert Ransom. Bugfix on 0.2.0.16-alpha.
- Learn our external IP address when we're a relay or bridge, even if
we set PublishServerDescriptor to 0. Bugfix on 0.2.0.3-alpha,
where we introduced bridge relays that don't need to publish to
be useful. Fixes bug 2050.
- Do even more to reject (and not just ignore) annotations on
router descriptors received anywhere but from the cache. Previously
we would ignore such annotations at first, but cache them to disk
anyway. Bugfix on 0.2.0.8-alpha. Found by piebeer.
- When you're using bridges and your network goes away and your
bridges get marked as down, recover when you attempt a new socks
connection (if the network is back), rather than waiting up to an
hour to try fetching new descriptors for your bridges. Bugfix on
0.2.0.3-alpha; fixes bug 1981.
o Major features:
- Move to the November 2010 Maxmind GeoLite country db (rather
than the June 2009 ip-to-country GeoIP db) for our statistics that
count how many users relays are seeing from each country. Now we'll
have more accurate data, especially for many African countries.
o New directory authorities:
- Set up maatuska (run by Linus Nordberg) as the eighth v3 directory
authority.
o Minor bugfixes:
- Fix an assertion failure that could occur in directory caches or
bridge users when using a very short voting interval on a testing
network. Diagnosed by Robert Hogan. Fixes bug 1141; bugfix on
0.2.0.8-alpha.
- Enforce multiplicity rules when parsing annotations. Bugfix on
0.2.0.8-alpha. Found by piebeer.
- Allow handshaking OR connections to take a full KeepalivePeriod
seconds to handshake. Previously, we would close them after
IDLE_OR_CONN_TIMEOUT (180) seconds, the same timeout as if they
were open. Bugfix on 0.2.1.26; fixes bug 1840. Thanks to mingw-san
for analysis help.
- When building with --enable-gcc-warnings on OpenBSD, disable
warnings in system headers. This makes --enable-gcc-warnings
pass on OpenBSD 4.8.
o Minor features:
- Exit nodes didn't recognize EHOSTUNREACH as a plausible error code,
and so sent back END_STREAM_REASON_MISC. Clients now recognize a new
stream ending reason for this case: END_STREAM_REASON_NOROUTE.
Servers can start sending this code when enough clients recognize
it. Bugfix on 0.1.0.1-rc; fixes part of bug 1793.
- Build correctly on mingw with more recent versions of OpenSSL 0.9.8.
Patch from mingw-san.
o Removed files:
- Remove the old debian/ directory from the main Tor distribution.
The official Tor-for-debian git repository lives at the URL
https://git.torproject.org/debian/tor.git
- Stop shipping the old doc/website/ directory in the tarball. We
changed the website format in late 2010, and what we shipped in
0.2.1.26 really wasn't that useful anyway.
Changes in version 0.2.2.19-alpha - 2010-11-22
Yet another OpenSSL security patch broke its compatibility with Tor:
Tor 0.2.2.19-alpha makes relays work with OpenSSL 0.9.8p and 1.0.0.b.
