As zlib 1.2.12 has been released for a lone time. Latest IPP 2021.6.0 version still just provides patch for zlib 1.2.11. When Intel will release the new IPP version with zlib 1.2.12 patch? 

Thanks.

We don't have a timeline on IPP to support zlib 1.2.12. It will be part of a future release. We will post the update in our release notes.

Hello,

For the  CVE issue,   the Intel® IPP zlib 1.2.11 patch available with Intel® IPP 2021.6 enables building the well-known zlib library (https://zlib.net/) with Intel® IPP to speed up several data compression and decompression operations. This Intel® IPP zlib 1.2.11 patch file includes a mitigation which alleviates the memory corruption issue reported as CVE-2018-25032 against zlib 1.2.11.   Check IPP release note for the update: Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives Release Notes for Intel®...

 

thanks,

Chao

Thanks, Chao.

As you know, zlib 1.2.12 was released in March and fixed more vulnerabilities of zlib 1.2.11.  We are waiting for the new Intel IPP version with zlib 1.2.12 patch. 

Thanks.
