2016-08-05sunrpc: Do not use alloca in clntudp_callWaldemar Brodkorb
CVE-2016-4429: The call is technically in a loop, and under certain circumstances (which are quite difficult to reproduce in a test case), alloca can be invoked repeatedly during a single call to clntudp_call. As a result, the available stack space can be exhausted (even though individual alloca sizes are bounded implicitly by what can fit into a UDP packet, as a side effect of the earlier successful send operation).

2016-06-24inet/resolv: Try search domains first for unqualified namesIngo van Lil
When resolving an unqualified host name, the resolver tries the original name first before appending the domains from the search list. If a TLD with the same name exists, the query will succeed (but yield no A record) and the resolver will return HOST_NOT_FOUND without trying the search domains. This patch changes the lookup order for unqualified host names (without dots) to try the search domains first and the original name last. Signed-off-by: Ingo van Lil <>
2016-06-21inet/getaddrinfo: fix AF_V4MAPPED behavior for non IPv6 host resolutionWenzel, Alexander
When trying to resolve a hostname by getaddrinfo() using some specific settings, it will always return -EAI_NONAME (Name or service not known). To reproduce this behavior, you need to request an IPv6 address with the additional AF_V4MAPPED flag set from an non IPv6 capable hostname. If you choose a IPv4/IPv6 capable hostname like, everything works fine. This patch is more or less a port [1][2] from the glibc and their behavior for the AF_V4MAPPED flag. To test the bug you can use the following snippet. ---- 8< ---- int ret; struct addrinfo* result; struct addrinfo hints; memset(&hints, 0, sizeof(struct addrinfo)); hints.ai_family = AF_INET6; hints.ai_flags = AI_V4MAPPED; ret = getaddrinfo("", NULL, &hints, &result); printf("getaddrinfo(): %i", ret); ---- 8< ---- [1];a=commit;f=sysdeps/posix/getaddrinfo.c;h=925c3c5c71596c02f7e58a0ffcdcaae44eb065c1 [2];a=commit;f=sysdeps/posix/getaddrinfo.c;h=28977c2c1acb789660ad47e0d88e42486059c916 Signed-off-by: Alexander Wenzel <>

2016-03-10getaddrinfo: correct AI_V4MAPPED handlingPeter Korsgaard
As recently reported on the Buildroot list: DNS lookups with Node.js currently fails on uClibc-ng. The reason for this is the way AI_V4MAPPED is handled. According to POSIX, AI_V4MAPPED should be ignored unless ai_family is AF_INET6: If the AI_V4MAPPED flag is specified along with an ai_family of AF_INET6, then getaddrinfo() shall return IPv4-mapped IPv6 addresses on finding no matching IPv6 addresses (ai_addrlen shall be 16). The AI_V4MAPPED flag shall be ignored unless ai_family equals AF_INET6. uClibc-ng was also handling AI_V4MAPPED for AF_UNSPEC, fix that. Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <>

2016-03-10DNS: don't count search-path miss as a retryTim Hockin
Currently a miss on a search-path entry is counted as a retry. This means that users with more than (num_nameservers * retries) entries in their search path list fail before trying all search paths. Concretely, a single nameserver with 4 search paths will never try the 4th search because the default retry is 3. The code doesn't currently retry a given nameserver in case of an error, so retries is sort of meaningless (though there are some comments indicating it might come). This change only treats total failure of a nameserver (try next server) as a retry. Signed-off-by: Tim Hockin <>

2015-12-22resolv: fix gethostbyname2_r to match gethostbyname_r, fixing bugs with AAAA ↵Waldemar Brodkorb
lookups The latter half of gethostbyname2_r (doing AAAA queries) is rather dramatically different from the corresponding portion of gethostbyname_r (doing A queries). This leads to problems like calls to getaddrinfo only returning one IPv6 address, even when multiple exist. Seems to be entirely a case of divergent evolution -- a half-decade of fixes for the IPv4 code but no love for IPv6. Until now. ;) DNS behaviour for IPv6 is really no different than for IPv4 -- beyond the difference in address sizes, there's no need for the functions to be so different. Consequently, this patch really is almost just a cut-and-paste of gethostbyname_r, with the appropriate substitutions of in6_addr, AF_INET6, etc; while holding on to the few extra bits that actually belong in there (eg #ifdef __UCLIBC_HAS_IPV6__).

2015-03-16resolv: fix unaligned tmp buffer corner-caseAlexey Brodkin
On execution of "inet/gethost_r-align" test I noticed failure due to unaligned access (instaed of 4-byte aligned 1-byte aligned address was attempted to be accessed). Further investigation confirmed this nice and helpful test failure. Following commit removed usage of ALIGN_BUFFER_OFFSET on entry to __read_etc_hosts_r(): So indeed if target architecture doesn't allow unaligned access and provided tmp buffer is not word aligned (and we will deal with pointers which means word-sized data units), then CPU will fail during execution. In case of ARC we'll see "Unaligned access" exception like this: --->8--- # potentially unexpected fatal signal 7.

2013-12-20inet: Fix threaded res_initKenneth Soerensen
In a multi-threaded application where res_init() was called either directly or implicitly, getaddrinfo() and others failed to add the DNS search domain to hostnames. This problem made it not possible to look up a hostname without its domain appended. The problem is caused by res_sync_func() overwriting the configuration read by __open_nameservers() immediately after it is read.
