Date: Sun, 13 Mar 2011 04:56:54 +0300 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: announce@...ts.openwall.com Subject: [openwall-announce] Owl-current & 3.0-stable updates; development lists; OpenVZ blog interview Hi, This is to announce several things at once: 1. A new snapshot of Owl-current is available on the mirrors. As usual, this includes ISOs, OpenVZ container templates, RPMs, and sources. The ISOs may be downloaded via direct links from the Owl homepage: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/ With the OpenSSL update to 1.0.0d included in this snapshot, Owl-current has finally deviated from Owl 3.0 and RHEL4 binary compatibility (moving towards RHEL6 binary compatibility). Besides OpenSSL, we've updated vsftpd to 2.3.4 (remote DoS vulnerability fix, CVE-2011-0762), patchutils to 0.3.2, and the Linux kernel to OpenVZ's latest "RHEL5 testing" one (-238.5.1.el5.028stab085.2) with our usual changes. 2. At the same time, we've released the first pre-compiled snapshot of Owl 3.0-stable. Compared to the 3.0 release, Owl 3.0-stable 2011/03/12 corrects a VIM packaging error, a vulnerability in the patch(1) program (CVE-2010-4651), two vulnerabilities in OpenSSL (CVE-2010-4180, CVE-2009-0590), which were at worst of moderate severity, and it updates vsftpd to 2.3.4 (CVE-2011-0762 fix) and patchutils to 0.3.2. The 3.0-stable snapshot is similarly complete (ISOs, vztemplates, RPMs, sources), with its ISOs linked directly from the Owl homepage. The announcement I've posted to owl-users includes a little bit more detail on these updates: http://www.openwall.com/lists/owl-users/2011/03/13/1 3. We've setup public mailing lists for discussions around development of Owl (owl-dev) and John the Ripper (john-dev). Previously, only user community public mailing lists existed for these projects (owl-users and john-users, respectively). The list archives and subscription instructions may be found via links from: http://www.openwall.com/lists/ 4. I was interviewed for the OpenVZ blog on topics including Owl, OpenVZ, and more: http://blog.openvz.org/37305.html I guess some of you might find some of this curious and/or useful. Any feedback is welcome. Alexander
