Version 7.58.0 (23 Jan 2018)

Daniel Stenberg (23 Jan 2018)

- RELEASE: 7.58.0

- [Gisle Vanem brought this change]

progress-bar: get screen width on windows

- test1454: --connect-to with IPv6 address w/o IPv6 support!

- CONNECT_TO: fail attempt to set an IPv6 numerical without IPv6 support

Reported-by: John Hascall

Closes #2257

- docs: fix man page syntax to make test 1140 OK again

- http: prevent custom Authorization headers in redirects

... unless CURLOPT_UNRESTRICTED_AUTH is set to allow them. This matches how

curl already handles Authorization headers created internally.

Note: this changes behavior slightly, for the sake of reducing mistakes.

Added test 317 and 318 to verify.

- curl: progress bar refresh, get width using ioctl()

Get screen width from the environment variable COLUMNS first, if set. If
not, use ioctl(). If nether works, assume 79.

Closes #2242

The "refresh" is for the -# output when no total transfer size is

known. It will now only use a single updated line even for this case:

The "-=O=-" ship moves when data is transferred. The four flying
"hashes" move (on a sine wave) on each refresh, independent of data.

SSH: Fix state machine for ssh-agent authentication

In case an identity didn't match[0], the state machine would fail in

state SSH_AUTH_AGENT instead of progressing to the next identity in
ssh-agent. As a result, ssh-agent authentication only worked if the
identity required happened to be the first added to ssh-agent.

This was introduced as part of commit c4eb10e2f06fbd6cc904f1d78e4, which

stated that the "else" statement was required to prevent getting stuck
in state SSH_AUTH_AGENT. Given the state machine's logic and libssh2's
interface I couldn't see how this could happen or reproduce it and I
also couldn't find a more detailed description of the problem which
would explain a test case to reproduce the problem this was supposed to

- mime: clone mime tree upon easy handle duplication.

A mime tree attached to an easy handle using CURLOPT_MIMEPOST is

strongly bound to the handle: there is a pointer to the easy handle in
each item of the mime tree and following the parent pointer list
of mime items ends in a dummy part stored within the handle.

Because of this binding, a mime tree cannot be shared between different

easy handles, thus it needs to be cloned upon easy handle duplication.

There is no way for the caller to get the duplicated mime tree
handle: it is then set to be automatically destroyed upon freeing the
new easy handle.

New test 654 checks proper mime structure duplication/release.

Add a warning note in curl_mime_data_cb() documentation about sharing

user data between duplicated handles.

- [Dan Johnson brought this change] append extra linker flags instead of prepending them.

Link order should list libraries after the libraries that use them,

to use -lssl, we should add -ldl after -lssl.

http2: fix incorrect trailer buffer size

Prior to this change the stored byte count of each trailer was
miscalculated and 1 less than required. It appears any trailer
after the first that was passed to Curl_client_write would be truncated
or corrupted as well as the size. Potentially the size of some
subsequent trailer could be erroneously extracted from the contents of
that trailer, and since that size is used by client write an
out-of-bounds read could occur and cause a crash or be otherwise
processed by client write.

The bug appears to have been born in 0761a51 (precedes 7.49.0).

received data is consumed by Brotli decoder and the size of decoded

- openssl: Disable file buffering for Win32 SSLKEYLOGFILE

Prior to this change SSLKEYLOGFILE used line buffering on WIN32 just

like it does for other platforms. However, the Windows CRT does not
actually support line buffering (_IOLBF) and will use full buffering
(_IOFBF) instead. We can't use full buffering because multiple processes
may be writing to the file and that could lead to corruption, and since
full buffering is the only buffering available this commit disables
buffering for Windows SSLKEYLOGFILE entirely (_IONBF).

- openssl: improve data-pending check for https proxy

- Allow proxy_ssl to be checked for pending data even when connssl does

This change is for posterity. Currently there doesn't seem to be a code

path that will cause a pending data check when proxyssl could have
pending data and the connssl handle doesn't yet exist [1].

[1]: Recall that an https proxy connection starts out in connssl but if
the destination is also https then the proxy SSL backend data is moved
from connssl to proxyssl, which means connssl handle is temporarily
empty until an SSL handle for the destination can be created.

lib: don't export all symbols, just everything curl_*

Absent any 'symbol map' or script to limit what gets exported, static
linking of libraries previously resulted in a libcurl with curl's and
those other symbols being (re-)exported.

This did not happen if 'versioned symbols' were enabled (which is not
the default) because then a version script is employed.

This limits exports to everything starting in 'curl_*'., which is

what "libcurl.vers" exports.

This avoids strange side-effects such as with mixing methods

from system libraries and those erroneously offered by libcurl.

SSL: Avoid magic allocation of SSL backend specific data

Originally, my idea was to allocate the two structures (or more

precisely, the connectdata structure and the four SSL backend-specific
strucutres required for ssl[0..1] and proxy_ssl[0..1]) in one go, so
that they all could be free()d together.

However, getting the alignment right is tricky. Too tricky.

So let's just bite the bullet and allocate the SSL backend-specific
data separately.

As a consequence, we now have to be very careful to release the memory

allocated for the SSL backend-specific data whenever we release any

url: fix alignment of ssl_backend_data struct

- Align the array of ssl_backend_data on a max 32 byte boundary.

8 is likely to be ok but I went with 32 for posterity should one of

the ssl_backend_data structs change to contain a larger sized variable
in the future.

Prior to this change (since dev 70f1db3, release 7.56) the connectdata
structure was undersized by 4 bytes in 32-bit builds with ssl enabled
because long long * was mistakenly used for alignment instead of
long long, with the intention being an 8 byte boundary. Also long long
may not be an available type.

The undersized connectdata could lead to oob read/write past the end in
what was expected to be the last 4 bytes of the connection's secondary
socket https proxy ssl_backend_data struct (the secondary socket in a
connection is used by ftp, others?).




- ssh: remove check for a NULL pointer (!)

With this check present, scan-build warns that we might dereference this
point in other places where it isn't first checked for NULL. Thus, if it

should not be possible to be NULL here so I remove the check and thus
also three different scan-build warnings.

connect: add support for new TCP Fast Open API on Linux

The new API added in Linux 4.11 only requires setting a socket option
before connecting, without the whole sento() machinery.

SSL library) internals.

--interface: add support for Linux VRF

- Don't call zlib's inflate() when avail_in stream bytes is 0.

This is a follow up to the parent commit 19e66e5. Prior to that change
libcurl's inflate_stream could call zlib's inflate even when no bytes
were available, causing inflate to return Z_BUF_ERROR, and then
inflate_stream would treat that as a hard error and return

According to the zlib FAQ, Z_BUF_ERROR is not fatal.

- transfer: Fix chunked-encoding upload bug

- When uploading via chunked-encoding don't compare file size to bytes

Chunked-encoding adds its own overhead which why the bytes sent is not
equal to the file size. Prior to this change if a file was uploaded in
chunked-encoding and its size was known it was possible that the upload
could end prematurely without sending the final few chunks. That would
result in a server hang waiting for the remaining data, likely followed
by a disconnect.

The scope of this bug is limited to some arbitrary file sizes which have
not been determined. One size that triggers the bug is 475020.

- lib/config-win32.h: let SMB/SMBS be enabled with OpenSSL/NSS

The source code is now prepared to handle the case when both
Win32 Crypto and OpenSSL/NSS crypto backends are enabled
at the same time, making it now possible to enable `USE_WIN32_CRYPTO`
whenever the targeted Windows version supports it. Since this
matches the minimum Windows version supported by curl
(Windows 2000), enable it unconditionally for the Win32 platform.

This in turn enables SMB (and SMBS) protocol support whenever

Win32 Crypto is available, regardless of what other crypto backends
are enabled.

- test650: Use variable replacement to set the host address and port

Otherwise, the test fails when the -b test option is used to set a

- Set and use more necessary options when some protocols are disabled

When curl and libcurl are built with some protocols disabled, they stop
setting and receiving some options that don't make sense with those
protocols. In particular, when HTTP is disabled many options aren't set
that are used only by HTTP. However, some options that appear to be
HTTP-only are actually used by other protocols as well (some despite
having HTTP in the name) and should be set, but weren't. This change now
causes some of these options to be set and used for more (or for all)
protocols. In particular, this fixes tests 646 through 649 in an
HTTP-disabled build, which use the MIME API in the mail protocols.

- metalink: fix NSS issue in MultiSSL builds

In MultiSSL mode (i.e. when more than one SSL backend is compiled
in), we cannot use the compile time flag `USE_NSS` as indicator that
the NSS backend is in use. As far as Metalink is concerned, the SSL
backend is only used for MD5, SHA-1 and SHA-256 calculations,
therefore one of the available SSL backends is selected at compile
time, in a strict order of preference.

Let's introduce a new `HAVE_NSS_CONTEXT` constant that can be used

to determine whether the SSL backend used for Metalink is the NSS
backend, and use that to guard the code that wants to de-initialize
the NSS-specific data structure.


- ntlm: use strict order for SSL backend #if branches

With the recently introduced MultiSSL support multiple SSL backends

can be compiled into cURL That means that now the order of the SSL

One option would be to use the same SSL backend as was configured
via `curl_global_sslset()`, however, NTLMv2 support would appear
to be available only with some SSL backends. For example, when
eb88d778e (ntlm: Use Windows Crypt API, 2014-12-02) introduced
support for NTLMv1 using Windows' Crypt API, it specifically did
*not* introduce NTLMv2 support using Crypt API at the same time.

So let's select one specific SSL backend for NTLM support when
compiled with multiple SSL backends, using a priority order such
that we support NTLMv2 even if only one compiled-in SSL backend can
be used for that.

OpenSSL: fix erroneous SSL backend encapsulation

In d65e6cc4f (vtls: prepare the SSL backends for encapsulated private

data, 2017-06-21), this developer prepared for a separation of the
private data of the SSL backends from the general connection data.

This conversion was partially automated (search-and-replace) and

partially manual (e.g. proxy_ssl's backend data).

Sadly, there was a crucial error in the manual part, where the wrong
handle was used: rather than connecting ssl[sockindex]' BIO to the
proxy_ssl[sockindex]', we reconnected proxy_ssl[sockindex]. The reason
was an incorrect location to paste "BACKEND->"... d'oh.

didn't break ABI without bumping SONAME, we introduced logic that
attempted to detect that it would use a different size and thus not be
compatible. We also provided a manual switch that allowed users to tell
configure to bump SONAME by force.

Today, we know of no one who ever got a SONAME bump auto-detected and we
don't know of anyone who's using the manual bump feature. The auto-
detection is also no longer working since we introduced defining
curl_off_t in system.h (7.55.0).

vtls: introduce curl_global_sslset()

Let's add a compile time safe API to select an SSL backend. This
function needs to be called *before* curl_global_init(), and can be
called only once.

Side note: we do not explicitly test that it is called before

curl_global_init(), but we do verify that it is not called multiple times
(even implicitly).

If SSL is used before the function was called, it will use whatever the
CURL_SSL_BACKEND environment variable says (or default to the first
available SSL backend), and if a subsequent call to
curl_global_sslset() disagrees with the previous choice, it will fail

The function also accepts an "avail" parameter to point to a (read-only)

NULL-terminated list of available backends. This comes in real handy if
an application wants to let the user choose between whatever SSL backends
the currently available libcurl has to offer: simply call

curl_global_sslset(-1, NULL, &avail);

which will return CURLSSLSET_UNKNOWN_BACKEND and populate the avail

variable to point to the relevant information to present to the user.

Just like with the HTTP/2 push functions, we have to add the function
declaration of curl_global_sslset() function to the header file
*multi.h* because VMS and OS/400 require a stable order of functions
declared in include/curl/*.h (where the header files are sorted
alphabetically). This looks a bit funny, but it cannot be helped.

vtls: allow selecting which SSL backend to use at runtime

When building software for the masses, it is sometimes not possible to

decide for all users which SSL backend is appropriate.

Git for Windows, for example, uses cURL to perform clones, fetches and
pushes via HTTPS, and some users strongly prefer OpenSSL, while other
users really need to use Secure Channel because it offers
enterprise-ready tools to manage credentials via Windows' Credential

The current Git for Windows versions use the ugly work-around of
building libcurl once with OpenSSL support and once with Secure Channel
support, and switching out the binaries in the installer depending on
the user's choice.

Needless to say, this is a super ugly workaround that actually only

works in some cases: Git for Windows also comes in a portable form, and
in a form intended for third-party applications requiring Git
functionality, in which cases this "swap out libcurl-4.dll" simply is
not an option.

Therefore, the Git for Windows project has a vested interest in teaching
cURL to make the SSL backend a *runtime* option.

This patch makes that possible.

By running ./configure with multiple --with-<backend> options, cURL will

be built with multiple backends.

For the moment, the backend can be configured using the environment
variable CURL_SSL_BACKEND (valid values are e.g. "openssl" and

vtls: encapsulate SSL backend-specific data

So far, all of the SSL backends' private data has been declared as
part of the ssl_connect_data struct, in one big #if .. #elif .. #endif

This can only work as long as the SSL backend is a compile-time option,
something we want to change in the next commits.

Therefore, let's encapsulate the exact data needed by each SSL backend
into a private struct, and let's avoid bleeding any SSL backend-specific
information into urldata.h. This is also necessary to allow multiple SSL
backends to be compiled in at the same time, as e.g. OpenSSL's and
CyaSSL's headers cannot be included in the same .c file.

To avoid too many malloc() calls, we simply append the private structs
to the connectdata struct in allocate_conn().

This requires us to take extra care of alignment issues: struct fields

often need to be aligned on certain boundaries e.g. 32-bit values need to
be stored at addresses that divide evenly by 4 (= 32 bit / 8

We do that by assuming that no SSL backend's private data contains any

fields that need to be aligned on boundaries larger than `long long`
(typically 64-bit) would need. Under this assumption, we simply add a
dummy field of type `long long` to the `struct connectdata` struct. This
field will never be accessed but acts as a placeholder for the four
instances of ssl_backend_data instead. the size of each ssl_backend_data
struct is stored in the SSL backend-specific metadata, to allow
allocate_conn() to know how much extra space to allocate, and how to
initialize the ssl[sockindex]->backend and proxy_ssl[sockindex]->backend

This would appear to be a little complicated at first, but is really

necessary to encapsulate the private data of each SSL backend correctly.
And we need to encapsulate thusly if we ever want to allow selecting
CyaSSL and OpenSSL at runtime, as their headers cannot be included within
the same .c file (there are just too many conflicting definitions and
declarations for that).

vtls: prepare the SSL backends for encapsulated private data

At the moment, cURL's SSL backend needs to be configured at build time.

As such, it is totally okay for them to hard-code their backend-specific

In preparation for making the SSL backend a runtime option, let's make
the access of said private data a bit more abstract so that it can be

urldata.h: move SSPI-specific #include to correct location

In 86b889485 (sasl_gssapi: Added GSS-API based Kerberos V5 variables,

2014-12-03), an SSPI-specific field was added to the kerberos5data
struct without moving the #include "curl_sspi.h" later in the same file.

This broke the build when SSPI was enabled, unless Secure Channel was
used as SSL backend, because it just so happens that Secure Channel also
requires "curl_sspi.h" to be #included.

In f4739f639 (urldata: include curl_sspi.h when Windows SSPI is enabled,

2017-02-21), this bug was fixed incorrectly: Instead of moving the
appropriate conditional #include, the Secure Channel-conditional part
was now also SSPI-conditional.

http_proxy: fix build error for CURL_DOES_CONVERSIONS


GitHub (16 Aug 2017)

- [Nick Zitzmann brought this change]

configure: check for __builtin_available() availability (#1788)

This change does two things:

1. It un-breaks the build in Xcode 9.0. (Xcode 9.0 is currently
failing trying to compile connectx() in lib/connect.c.)
2. It finally weak-links the connectx() function, and falls back on
connect() when run on older operating systems.

curl-confopts.m4: fix --disable-threaded-resolver

- [Ryan Winograd brought this change]

progress: Track total times following redirects

Update the progress timers `t_nslookup`, `t_connect`, `t_appconnect`,

`t_pretransfer`, and `t_starttransfer` to track the total times for
these activities when a redirect is followed. Previously, only the times
for the most recent request would be tracked.

Related changes:

- Rename `Curl_pgrsResetTimesSizes` to `Curl_pgrsResetTransferSizes`

now that the function only resets transfer sizes and no longer
modifies any of the progress timers.

- Add a bool to the `Progress` struct that is used to prevent

double-counting `t_starttransfer` times.

Added test case 1399.

curl: do bounds check using a double comparison

The fix for this in 8661a0aacc01492e0436275ff36a21734f2541bb wasn't

complete: if the parsed number in num is larger than will fit in a long,
the conversion is undefined behaviour (causing test1427 to fail for me
on IA32 with GCC 7.1, although it passes on AMD64 and ARMv7). Getting
rid of the cast means the comparison will be done using doubles.

It might make more sense for the max argument to also be a double...

multi: fix request timer management

There are some bugs in how timers are managed for a single easy handle
that causes the wrong "next timeout" value to be reported to the
application when a new minimum needs to be recomputed and that new
minimum should be an existing timer that isn't currently set for the
easy handle. When the application drives a set of easy handles via the
`curl_multi_socket_action()` API (for example), it gets told to wait the
wrong amount of time before the next call, which causes requests to
linger for a long time (or, it is my guess, possibly forever).

gtls: fix build when sizeof(long) < sizeof(void *)

- Change gnutls pointer/int macros to pointer/curl_socket_t.

Prior to this change they used long type as well.

The size of the `long` data type can be shorter than that of pointer
types. This is the case most notably on Windows.

If C99 were acceptable, we could simply use `intptr_t` here. But we

want to retain C89 compatibility.

Simply use the trick of performing pointer arithmetic with the NULL
pointer: to convert an integer `i` to a pointer, simply take the
address of the `i`th element of a hypothetical character array
starting at address NULL. To convert back, simply cast the pointer

Thanks to Jay Satiro for the initial modification to use curl_socket_t

instead of int/long.

- curl --socks5-{basic,gssapi}: control socks5 auth


- CURLOPT_SOCKS5_AUTH: allowed methods for SOCKS5 proxy auth

If libcurl was built with GSS-API support, it unconditionally advertised

GSS-API authentication while connecting to a SOCKS5 proxy. This caused
problems in environments with improperly configured Kerberos: a stock
libcurl failed to connect, despite libcurl built without GSS-API
connected fine using username and password.

This commit introduces the CURLOPT_SOCKS5_AUTH option to control the

allowed methods for SOCKS5 authentication at run time.

Note that a new option was preferred over reusing CURLOPT_PROXYAUTH

for compatibility reasons because the set of authentication methods
allowed by default was different for HTTP and SOCKS5 proxies.

- curl-compilers.m4: fix unknown-warning-option on Apple clang

Since 5598b0bd63f690c151074494ce47ef872f004ab4, clang -v is used to

detect the clang version. The version number was expected to come after
the word "version". For Apple clang, this doesn't work as it has its
own versioning scheme.
The version number is now first searched after the string
"based on LLVM". This works for Apple clang before version 7, and also
for e.g. Ubuntu's clang up to version 3.7. If it's not found and the
version string contains "Apple LLVM version", clang version 3.7 is
assumed, which is the version that comes with Xcode 7. Otherwise, the
version number is still expected after the word "version", which works
for very old Apple clang versions.
