Hello gophers,

We have just released Go versions 1.18.5 and 1.17.13, minor point releases.

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

  • encoding/gob & math/big: decoding big.Float and big.Rat can panic

    Decoding big.Float and big.Rat types can panic if the encoded message is too short.

    This is CVE-2022-32189 and Go issue https://go.dev/issue/53871.

View the release notes for more information:

To compile from source using a Git clone, update to the release with
git checkout go1.18.5 and build as usual.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the releases.

Cheers,
Dmitri, Cherry, and Heschi for the Go team
