Description

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version: golang (1.8.3).

Security Fix(es) :

  • A carry propagation flaw was found in the implementation of the P-256 elliptic curve in golang. An attacker could possibly use this flaw to extract private keys when static ECDH was used. (CVE-2017-8932)
