12 July, 2023 by email@example.com | openbsd
We have released OpenBGPD 8.1, which will be arriving in the OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon. This release includes the following changes to the previous release: * Include OpenBSD 7.3 errata 002: Avoid fatal errors in bgpd(8) due to incorrect refcounting and mishandling of ASPA objects. Fix bgpctl(8) 'show rib in' by renaming 'invalid' into 'disqualified'. * Include OpenBSD 7.3 errata 006: Incorrect length handling of path attributes in bgpd(8) can lead to a session reset. * Include OpenBSD 7.3 errata 009: When tracking nexthops over IPv6 multipath routes, or when receiving a NOTIFICATION while reaching an internal limit, bgpd(8) could crash. When checking the next hop for IPv6 multipath routes, or when receiving a NOTIFICATION while reaching an internal limit, bgpd(8) could crash. * Add configure options to adjust WWW_USER and wwwrunstatedir. * Fix 'ext-community * *' matching which also affects filters removing all ext-commuinites. * Limit the socket buffer size to 64k for all sessions. Limiting the buffer size to a reasonable size ensures that not too many updates end up queued in the TCP stack. OpenBGPD-portable is known to compile and run on FreeBSD and the Linux distributions Alpine, Debian, Fedora, RHEL/CentOS and Ubuntu. It is our hope that packagers take interest and help adapt OpenBGPD-portable to more distributions. We welcome feedback and improvements from the broader community. Thanks to all of the contributors who helped make this release possible.
