[tor-talk] Tor-ramdisk 20140520 released
I want to announce to the list that a new release of tor-ramdisk is out.
Tor-ramdisk is an i686, x86_64 or MIPS uClibc-based micro Linux
distribution whose only purpose is to host a Tor server in an
environment that maximizes security and privacy. Security is enhanced by
hardening the kernel and binaries, and privacy is enhanced by forcing
logging to be off at all levels so that even the Tor operator only has
access to minimal information. Finally, since everything runs in
ephemeral memory, no information survives a reboot, except for the Tor
configuration file and the private RSA key, which may be
exported/imported by FTP or SCP.
This release updates tor to version 0.2.4.22, the kernel to 3.14.4 plus
Gentoo's hardened-patches, and openssh to 6.6p1. The bump in tor adds an
important block to authority signing keys that were used on authorities
vulnerable to the "heartbleed" bug in OpenSSL, CVE-2014-0160. The bump
in the kernel addresses the pty layer race condition memory corruption,
CVE-2014-0196. Upgrading is strongly recommended.
