Hello gophers,

We have just released Go versions 1.22.3 and 1.21.10, minor point releases.

These minor releases include 2 security fixes following the security policy:

  • cmd/go: arbitrary code execution during build on darwin

    On Darwin, building a Go module which contains CGO can trigger arbitrary code execution when using the Apple version of ld, due to usage of the -lto_library flag in a "#cgo LDFLAGS" directive.

    Thanks to Juho Forsén of Mattermost for reporting this issue.

    This is CVE-2024-24787 and Go issue https://go.dev/issue/67119.

  • net: malformed DNS message can cause infinite loop

    A malformed DNS message in response to a query can cause the Lookup functions to get stuck in an infinite loop.

    Thanks to @long-name-let-people-remember-you on GitHub for reporting this issue, and to Mateusz Poliwczak for bringing the issue to our attention.

    This is CVE-2024-24788 and Go issue https://go.dev/issue/66754.

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

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the releases.

David, Cherry, and Roland for the Go team
