Hello gophers,

We have just released Go versions 1.18.3 and 1.17.11, minor point releases.

These minor releases include 4 security fixes following the security policy:
  • crypto/rand: rand.Read hangs with extremely large buffers

    On Windows, rand.Read will hang indefinitely if passed a buffer larger than 1 << 32 - 1 bytes.

    Thanks to Davis Goodin and Quim Muntal, working at Microsoft on the Go toolset, for reporting this issue.

    This is CVE-2022-30634 and Go issue https://go.dev/issue/52561.
  • crypto/tls: session tickets lack random ticket_age_add

    Session tickets generated by crypto/tls did not contain a randomly generated ticket_age_add. This allows an attacker that can observe TLS handshakes to correlate successive connections by comparing ticket ages during session resumption.

    Thanks to GitHub user @nervuri for reporting this.

    This is CVE-2022-30629 and Go issue https://go.dev/issue/52814.
  • os/exec: empty Cmd.Path can result in running unintended binary on Windows

    If, on Windows, Cmd.Run, cmd.Start, cmd.Output, or cmd.CombinedOutput are executed when Cmd.Path is unset and, in the working directory, there are binaries named either "..com" or "..exe", they will be executed.

    Thanks to Chris Darroch (chris...@github.com), brian m. carlson (bk2...@github.com), and Mikhail Shcherbakov (https://twitter.com/yu5k3) for reporting this.

    This is CVE-2022-30580 and Go issue https://go.dev/issue/52574.
  • path/filepath: Clean(`.\c:`) returns `c:` on Windows

    On Windows, the filepath.Clean function could convert an invalid path to a valid, absolute path. For example, Clean(`.\c:`) returned `c:`.

    Thanks to Unrud for reporting this issue.

    This is CVE-2022-29804 and Go issue https://go.dev/issue/52476.
