Date: Wed, 11 Sep 2002 14:17:23 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: announce@...ts.openwall.com Cc: owl-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Linux 2.2.21-ow2, Owl CDs Hi, Linux 2.2.21-ow2 has been released yesterday and includes many security fixes for issues with the Linux kernel discovered during code reviews by Silvio Cesare, me, and others. None are known to be exploitable remotely, but local attacks are possible in most setups. Many of the fixes are to drivers and architecture-specific code, though. 2.2.22 should include almost all of this once released. The patch is available at the usual location: http://www.openwall.com/linux/ It is now possible to order Openwall GNU/*/Linux (Owl) on a CD with delivery worldwide and support our project by doing so: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/orders.shtml Currently shipping is the 2002/09/10 Owl-current snapshot, which is already updated to include Linux 2.2.21-ow2. This is also the kernel version you get with the live CD-booted system (yes, Owl may be used in this way, too). Of course, the corresponding ISO image is also available for download from our FTP mirrors as listed on the Owl homepage and in DOWNLOAD on any of the mirrors: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/ Other recent changes to Owl may be seen in the system-wide change log (Owl/doc/CHANGES), also available via the web: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/CHANGES.shtml (This is very far from an exhaustive list of changes. Small changes to individual packages are mentioned in change logs for the packages themselves, not here.) -- /sd
