The latest snapshot dated 2003/11/03 is also available with the CD orders you may place off the web page: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/orders.shtml Alternatively, it may be downloaded from /pub/Owl/current/iso/ on the FTP mirrors listed at: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/DOWNLOAD.shtml This is the first Owl ISO image / CD to officially use Linux 2.4.x kernels (2.4.22-ow1 currently). Linux 2.2.x remains supported too. On another topic, there's a new version of pam_passwdqc, the password strength checking PAM module. pam_passwdqc 0.7.5 will now assume invocation by root only if both the UID is 0 and the PAM service name is "passwd"; this should fix changing expired passwords on Solaris and HP-UX and make "enforce=users" safe. The proper English explanations of requirements for strong passwords will now be generated for a wider variety of possible settings. pam_passwdqc is available at: http://www.openwall.com/passwdqc/ Of course, this new version of pam_passwdqc is also a part of the Owl-current snapshot above. -- Alexander Peslyak <solar@...nwall.com> GPG key ID: B35D3598 fp: 6429 0D7E F130 C13E C929 6447 73C3 A290 B35D 3598 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments
