Fresh ISO images of Owl-current for x86 and x86-64 (generated on October 25) are available on our FTP mirrors. There are also direct download links on the Owl homepage: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/ These ISOs use Linux 184.108.40.206-ow1 as the kernel, and, compared to last month's ISO snapshots, they contain updated versions of many packages (vsftpd, iptables, passwdqc, cpio, e2fsprogs, strace, VIM, and xinetd), as well as minor changes to some other packages. As usual, the major changes are documented: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/CHANGES-current.shtml Like last month, these updates are due to work by Dmitry V. Levin, Michail Litvak, and me. 2. Speaking of the kernel, Linux 220.127.116.11 fixes a number of information leak vulnerabilities. One of these was already fixed in 18.104.22.168-ow1 (as used in last month's Owl-current ISOs), and the remaining ones may or may not affect specific systems depending on both kernel and userspace configuration. The 22.214.171.124-ow1 patch additionally fixes a typo in one of the information leak fixes (CVE-2009-3612). The updated kernel patch is available at the usual location: http://www.openwall.com/linux/ 3. We've setup an unofficial mirror of www.packetfactory.net. We did this because the main Packetfactory site appeared to have gone down "permanently" (staying down for about a year), whereas much of its content was still valuable. The Packetfactory was hosting a number of networking and network security projects (with a focus on raw IP networking) and related publications. All of this content is now available on the mirror, although some of the projects (the actively maintained ones) have since moved elsewhere. The mirror is here: http://packetfactory.openwall.net Alexander
