Two vmm(4) related security fixes went in today by Pratik Vyas/pd@, one of which I helped work on. :flan_thumbs:

"vmm(4): check page boundaries for pvclock struct Check if pvclock struct crosses page boundaries as that could potentially corrupt host memory. Discussed with guenther@ and Mike Larkin Reported by Maxime Villard. ok mortimer@

"vmm(4): tighten rdmsr on svm For MSRs not emulated or passed through explicitly, inject #GP. With help from brynet@ Reported by Maxime Villard. ok brynet@"

How does one find modern #Arabic #calligraphy #artists who take #commissions?

Besides typing it in Google (that's all I've got besides this right here)

As always, every boost appreciated!

Now and then I look at incoming links to my web site.

More than one company links to me from a page called some variant of "new hire checklist."

Career tip: if you job requires you to read #savagedbysystemd, you need a new job.

Errata patches for vmm have been released for OpenBSD 6.6.

A missing range check in the vmm pvclock allows a guest to write
to host memory.

Binary updates for the amd64 platform are available via the syspatch
utility. Source code patches can be found on the errata page:

openbsd.org/errata66.html

As these affect the kernel, a reboot will be needed after patching.
