News The p2k16 hackathon has begun OpenBSD developers from around the world have just gathered in Nantes, France for the p2k16 hackathon. This event is technically a ports hackathon, but many non-porters have showed up too, which means you can expect a variety of different improvements. As an early example, ajacoutot@ has just set sysmerge to run automatically during the upgrade process.
Head over to the hackathons page to see the artwork, and stay tuned to Undeadly for some post-hackathon reports.

Rushing into BSD | BSD Now 138 This week on the show, we will be talking to Benedict Reushling about his role with the FreeBSD foundation and the journey that took him there. That plus a few weeks worth of news to get caught up on, coming up next on BSDNow! View attached file (622 MB, video/mp4)

anti-ROP mechanism in libc
Undeadly.org - April 25, 2016, 2:59 pm UTC

Theo (deraadt@) writes in to the tech@ mailing list, with a clever idea that we would like to try.



This change randomizes the order of symbols in libc.so at boot time.



This is done by saving all the independent .so sub-files into an ar
archive, and then relinking them into a new libc.so in random order,
at each boot. The cost is less than a second on the systems I am
using.



For now, this is only done for libc, because it is generally the most
gadget heavy library; spilled registers are more likely to point
within the libc segment; and also the gadgets are close to system call
stubs. As a result of the change, gadgets are no longer found at
fixed offsets from spilled registers.


More details are available on tech@. Please check the thread for any replies or updates.
