* Changes in Emacs 25.3
-This is mainly a release to fix security-relevant bugs.
+This is an emergency release to fix a security vulnerability in Emacs.
-** Enriched text mode no longer supports the 'FUNCTION' and 'display'
-translations, and Gnus no longer processes enriched text when
-inlining. This fixes bugs introduced in Emacs 19.29. To work around
-these bugs in Emacs versions 19.29 through 25.2, append the following
-to your ~/.emacs file:
+** Security vulnerability related to Enriched Text mode is removed.
- (provide 'enriched)
- (defun enriched-mode (&optional arg))
- (defun enriched-decode (from to))
+*** Enriched Text mode has its support for decoding 'x-display' disabled.
+This feature allows saving 'display' properties as part of text.
+Emacs 'display' properties support evaluation of arbitrary Lisp forms
+as part of instantiating the property, so decoding 'x-display' is
+vulnerable to executing arbitrary malicious Lisp code included in the
+text (e.g., sent as part of an email message).
-Thanks to Charles A. Roelli for reporting this bug; see:
+This vulnerability was introduced in Emacs 21.1. To work around that
+in Emacs versions before 25.3, append the following to your ~/.emacs
-** TLS/SSL connections no longer fall back on the openssl s_client
-command to set up SSL connections in some hopefully-unlikely cases.
-This fixes a bug introduced in Emacs 22.1. To work around this bug in
-Emacs versions 22.1 through 25.2, append the following to your
+ (eval-after-load "enriched"
+ '(defun enriched-decode-display-prop (start end &optional param)
+ (list start end)))
- (setq tls-program '("gnutls-cli --x509cafile %t -p %p %h"))
-You may need to omit the "--x509cafile %t" on older installations.
-Thanks to Kurt Roeckx for reporting this bug to Debian; see:
+*** Gnus no longer supports "richtext" and "enriched" inline MIME objects.
+This support was disabled to avoid evaluation of arbitrary Lisp code
+contained in email messages and news articles.
