Toolkit 9.6p2 Important Announcements

During the most recent Daylight Savings Time transition from EST to EDT, it was noted that for about a week the PTC MKS Toolkit utility programs (such as date.exe, strftime.exe, make.exe, …) (not the NuTCRACKER ported applications) did not notice the time change correctly. Upon analysis, it was discovered that there were some rare edge conditions (where transitions occurred on the first day of week two of the month) where the transition to and from daylight savings time in some time zones were miscalculated. In particular all of North America for both 2015 transitions are affected, but the 2016 transitions are fine. There are surely other areas of the world affected. This affects all versions of (PTC) MKS Toolkit as far back as at least 6.1. PTC will not release any fixes for versions earlier than 9.6. We recommend upgrading to 9.6 and applying patch 2 before your next DST transition in order for dates to be properly rendered. This fix will also appear in PTC MKS Toolkit 10.0 due out later this year.

PTC MKS Toolkit 9.6p2 is a mandatory patch for all customers using PTC MKS Toolkit 9.6 or 9.6 patch1 on machines not connected to the internet and unable to download intermediary certificates. The symptoms of this disconnection are usually intermittent and range from roughly 15 second delays to execute a program, to PTC MKS Toolkit License error dialogs to utilities with no output at all.


Security Vulnerability Responses

CVE-2014-6271 Security Vulnerability Does Not Impact PTC MKS Toolkit
PTC MKS Toolkit has a shell called BASH; however, it is our own KornShell with some BASH features implemented based on what the man page says those features do. It shares no code with the affected GPL version. In fact, reading function definitions from the environment is not one of those features.

PTC MKS Toolkit is not affected by this vulnerability.


CVE-2014-0160 Security Vulnerability – Bug in OpenSSL’s implementation of the TLS/DTLS (transport layer security protocols)/OpenSSL 1.0.1 to 1.01f (inclusive) PTC MKS Toolkit versions 9.5 and 9.6 include a version of OpenSSL that contains the above vulnerability. We have confirmed that our ssh.exe is not impacted, but three areas of risk have been identified:

  • Use of web.exe/netnews.exe could expose information to a compromised server.
  • Use of the openssl.exe s_client and s_server commands could expose information to a remote machine.
  • NutCracker ported applications that are linked against the OpenSSL libraries.
Hotfixes are now available for PTC MKS Toolkit versions 9.5 and 9.6 that will disable the TLS/DTLS (transport layer security protocols) heartbeat extension and fully address this vulnerability.

Please contact PTC MKS Toolkit Technical Support (mkstoolkitsupport@ptc.com) to obtain a copy.

NOTE: PTC X/Server, MKS Toolkit versions 9.4 and earlier are not impacted by this vulnerability.


Date command failed to make the transition to DST this year
There is a bug in PTC MKS Toolkit that reads daylight savings information from Windows this year where the first Sunday of March was also the first day of March. For all time zones west of UTC the existing code will not trigger DST until Sunday March 15 at 02:00. The workaround is simply to set a TZ environment variable for the next week to force the correct behavior. By setting it to trigger on Sunday of week 1 of March (rather than the correct Sunday of week 2 or March) we bypass the bug and force DST on now.

TZ=EST+05:00:00EDT+04:00:00,M3.1.0/02:00:00,M11.1.0/02:00:00

Look for CFS 36924 to be fixed in the next patch releases or each of the supported versions so that it will not recur the next time 1 March is a Sunday.

The following tables outline the versions of our products that are supported, and if applicable, any patches for that product version. If your version is not listed, please contact PTC MKS Toolkit Sales for an update.

Note:
Upon announcement, support expiration dates for released versions of the PTC MKS Interoperability Products will be included in the tables below. This means that we will no longer patch or address issues found in a version with expired support. If an issue reported in a version with expired support can also be reproduced in a currently supported version of the software, the fix will be considered for inclusion in a supported version.
