python3-libs package missing several _sha* files

Post by miro2021 » 2021/02/09 03:36:47

Hi CentOS Team,

I'm working for a non-for-profit organization in the medical research field and after recent OS/sec. updates of our CentOS 7 systems, we noticed several shared library files missing in python3-libs (version: 3.6.8-18.el7) rpm package:

_md5.cpython-36m-x86_64-linux-gnu.so
_sha1.cpython-36m-x86_64-linux-gnu.so
_sha256.cpython-36m-x86_64-linux-gnu.so
_sha512.cpython-36m-x86_64-linux-gnu.so

These libs are present in version 3.6.8-13.el7 of the same package. We suspect that the above files were removed intentionally due to security concerns, but can you please clarify/confirm this for us please?

Many thanks in advance,
Mirek

I'd suggest checking a RHEL copy of the same update and seeing if it is the same. If it is then it's a RH problem and if it is not then it is a CentOS problem and you should report it on bugs.centos.org.

I checked on RHEL 7:
[root@rhel7 ~]# rpm -ql python3-libs | grep -E "md5|sha1|sha256|sha512"
[root@rhel7 ~]#
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
