Tor Browser Bundle 3.5.4 Updates OpenSSL To 1.0.1g

Tor Browser Bundle 3.5.4 is available in the Tor Browser Bundle PPA.

This release updates the OpenSSL version to 1.0.1g, to address potential client-side vectors for CVE-2014-0160. The browser itself does not use OpenSSL, and is not vulnerable to this CVE. However, this release is still considered an important security update, because it is theoretically possible to extract sensitive information from the Tor client sub-process.

Package info:

  • Description: Tor Browser Bundle is a web browser based on Firefox ESR (Firefox with extended support), configured to protect users’ privacy and anonymity by using Tor and Vidalia, tools that come bundled with it. The bundle also includes 4 Firefox extensions: TorButton, TorLauncher, NoScript and HTTPS-Everywhere.

YAD (and Y PPA Manager) should now work in Ubuntu 14.04 for all

There is a bug in YAD, the GUI used by Y PPA Manager which makes the list dialogs freeze under Ubuntu 14.04 for some users.

I’ve reported the bug to the YAD developer but until it’s fixed, I’ve added a work-around: the YAD package for Ubuntu 14.04 is now built with GTK2, which makes both YAD and Y PPA Manager work in Ubuntu 14.04.

Grive Updated With Fixes

Grive is a command line Google Drive sync tool for Linux. Today I’ve updated Grive with the code from THIS branch which adds various fixes:

  • YAJL fux
  • JSON-C not found fix
  • Define PACKAGE & PACKAGE_VERSION for bfd
  • Add delay before auth token refresh
  • Fix hang when upload receives HTTP 500. This is sometimes necessary to prevent too frequent requests.
  • Retry upload on XML error instead of crashing (Sometimes the Google Drive API sends malformed XML which crashes grive. This patch adds a simple try-catch to Resource::Upload that retries the upload if an XML exception is thrown from AuthAgent::Put.)
