- New version 3.6.3, addresses the following security issues:
  - CVE-2020-25039, bsc#1176705
  When a Singularity action command (run, shell, exec) is run with
  the fakeroot or user namespace option, Singularity will extract
  a container image to a temporary sandbox directory.
  Due to insecure permissions on the temporary directory it is possible
  for any user with access to the system to read the contents of the image.
  Additionally, if the image contains a world-writable file or directory,
  it is possible for a user to inject arbitrary content into the running
  - CVE-2020-25040, bsc#1176707
  When a Singularity command that results in a container
  build operation is executed, it is possible for a user with access
  to the system to read the contents of the image during the build.
  Additionally, if the image contains a world-writable file or directory,
  it is possible for a user to inject arbitrary content into the running
  build, which in certain circumstances may enable arbitrary code execution
  during the build and/or when the built container is run.

  - Fix capability handling regression in overlay mount.
  - Fix LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment override regression with --nv/--rocm.
  - Fix environment variable duplication within singularity engine.

    in overlay images.

- Remove patch, this change is now in upstream:
  * build-position-independent-binaries.patch
Version: 3.6.0-bp152.2.4.1
* Wed Jul 15 2020 Ana Guerrero Lopez <>
- New version 3.6.0. This version introduces a new signature format
  for SIF images, and changes to the signing / verification code to address
  the following security problems:
  - CVE-2020-13845, bsc#1174150
  In Singularity 3.x versions below 3.6.0, issues allow the ECL to
  be bypassed by a malicious user.
  - CVE-2020-13846, bsc#1174148
  In Singularity 3.5 the --all / -a option to singularity verify
  returns success even when some objects in a SIF container are not signed,
  or cannot be verified.
  - CVE-2020-13847, bsc#1174152
  In Singularity 3.x versions below 3.6.0, Singularity's sign and verify
  commands do not sign metadata found in the global header or data object
  descriptors of a SIF file, allowing an attacker to cause unexpected
  behavior. A signed container may verify successfully, even when it has
  been modified in ways that could be exploited to cause malicious behavior.
- New features / functionalities
  - A new '--legacy-insecure' flag to verify allows verification of SIF
  signatures in the old, insecure format.
  - A new '-l / --logs' flag for instance list that shows the paths
  to instance STDERR / STDOUT log files.
  - The --json output of instance list now include paths to
  STDERR / STDOUT log files.
- Changed defaults / behaviours
  - New signature format (see security fixes above).
  - Fixed spacing of singularity instance list to be dynamically changing
  based off of input lengths instead of fixed number of spaces to account
  for long instance names.
- Deprecate -a / --all option to sign/verify as new signature behavior
  makes this the default.
- For more information about upstream changes, please check:
* Mon May 25 2020 Ana Guerrero Lopez <>
- New pre-version 3.6.0 rc5 with many changes:
- New features / functionalities
  - Singularity now supports the execution of minimal Docker/OCI
  containers that do not contain /bin/sh, e.g. docker://hello-world.
  - A new cache structure is used that is concurrency safe on a filesystem that
  supports atomic rename. If you downgrade to Singularity 3.5 or older after
  using 3.6 you will need to run singularity cache clean.
  - A plugin system rework adds new hook points that will allow the
  development of plugins that modify behavior of the runtime. An image driver
  concept is introduced for plugins to support new ways of handling image and
  overlay mounts. Plugins built for <=3.5 are not compatible with 3.6.
  - The --bind flag can now bind directories from a SIF or ext3 image into a
  - The --fusemount feature to mount filesystems to a container via FUSE
  drivers is now a supported feature (previously an experimental hidden flag).
  - This permits users to mount e.g. sshfs and cvmfs filesystems to the
  container at runtime.
  - A new -c/--config flag allows an alternative singularity.conf to be
  specified by the root user, or all users in an unprivileged installation.
  - A new --env flag allows container environment variables to be set via the
  Singularity command line.
  - A new --env-file flag allows container environment variables to be set from
  a specified file.
  - A new --days flag for cache clean allows removal of items older than a
  specified number of days. Replaces the --name flag which is not generally
  useful as the cache entries are stored by hash, not a friendly name.
- Changed defaults / behaviours
  - Environment variables prefixed with SINGULARITYENV_ always take
  precedence over variables without SINGULARITYENV_ prefix.
  - The %post build section inherits environment variables from the base image.
  - %files from ... will now follow symlinks for sources that are directly
  specified, or directly resolved from a glob pattern. It will not follow
  symlinks found through directory traversal. This mirrors Docker multi-stage
  COPY behaviour.
  - Restored the CWD mount behaviour of v2, implying that CWD path is not recreated
  inside container and any symlinks in the CWD path are not resolved anymore to
  determine the destination path inside container.
  - The %test build section is executed the same manner as singularity test image.
  - -fusemount with the container: default directive will foreground the FUSE
  process. Use container-daemon: for previous behavior.
- Removed --name flag for cache clean; replaced with --days.
- And many bug fixes.
- Update URL, github repository has moved.
- Update patch:
  * build-position-independent-binaries.patch
Version: 3.5.3-bp152.1.39
* Wed Feb 19 2020 Ana Guerrero Lopez <>
- New version 3.5.3. Main changes:
  * Container action scripts are no longer bound in from `etc/actions.d` on the
    host. They are created dynamically and inserted at container startup.
  * `%files from ...` will no longer follow symlinks when copying between
    stages in a multi stage build, as symlinks should be copied so that they
    resolve identically in later stages. Copying `%files` from the host will
    still maintain previous behavior of following links.
  * Many bug fixes, please read
* Thu Dec 19 2019 Ana Guerrero Lopez <>
- New version 3.5.2. Main change is a fix for a security issue related

  Version 2.3:
  There are a massive number of fixes, updates, optimizations and awesomeness
  contained within this release, but here is a brief overview of the major
  changes you can expect to find in this release:
    Lots of backend library changes to accommodate a more flexible API
    Restructured Python backend
    Updated bootstrap backend to make it much more reliable
    Direct support for the awesome, the fantastic, Singularity-Hub!

    Added ability to pull images from Singularity Hub and Docker
    Containers now have labels, and are inspect'able
- Do-chdir-before-duing-chroot.patch:
  Add a chdir() before chroot() just to keep rpmlint from complaining
  even more. There is a chdir("/") right after the chroot() call.
- Created group 'singularity' and make suid-root binaries only executable
  by this group.
