Hello gophers,

We have just released Go versions 1.20.2 and 1.19.7, minor point releases.

These minor releases include 1 security fixes following the security policy:

  • crypto/elliptic: incorrect P-256 ScalarMult and ScalarBaseMult results

    The ScalarMult and ScalarBaseMult methods of the P256 Curve may return an
    incorrect result if called with some specific unreduced scalars (a scalar larger
    than the order of the curve).

    This does not impact usages of crypto/ecdsa or crypto/ecdh.

    Thanks to Guido Vranken for repoting this issue via the Ethereum Foundation bug
    bounty program.

    This is CVE-2023-24532 and Go issue https://go.dev/issue/58647.

You can download binary and source distributions from the Go website:

To compile from source using a Git clone, update to the release with
git checkout go1.20.2 and build as usual.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the releases.

Cheers,
Carlos and Dmitri for the Go team
