Upgrading to Ubuntu 17.10 on WSL

Note: This workaround is no longer necessary in Windows 10 Insider build 17046 and later. As of 2018-02-07, the patch hasn't yet made it to stable.

  1. Upgrade with do-release-upgrade, as you normally would. It will error out and leave your system in a partially upgraded state.
  2. Close all WSL terminals and ensure that all WSL processes have terminated
  3. Run as a normal user (not root): wget -O - | sh -s
  4. Answer any prompts (sudo password, version disambiguation)
  5. If there are errors, resolve them and re-run the script. It is idempotent, meaning that it is safe to run any number of times, even if it only partially completes.

  1. The leak was released shortly after a Patch Tuesday and at the start of a holiday weekend.
  2. Uploader's account name: yurishitova
    1. The account doesn't show up anywhere else; it was likely created specifically for this purpose.
  3. My guess is that the name can be broken up into two words:

Security Advisory: PHP's escapeshellcmd and escapeshellarg are insecure

Paul Buonopane at NamePros

I'm working on cleaning up this advisory so that it's more informative at a glance. Suggestions are welcome.

This advisory addresses the underlying PHP vulnerabilities behind Dawid Golunski's [CVE-2016-10033][CVE-2016-10033], [CVE-2016-10045][CVE-2016-10045], and [CVE-2016-10074][CVE-2016-10074]. It assumes prior understanding of these vulnerabilities.

This advisory does not yet have associated CVE identifiers.
