Tails, The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 1.1.1, is out.

All users must upgrade as soon as possible: this release fixes numerous security issues.

Changes

Notable user-visible changes include:

  • Security fixes

    • Upgrade the web browser to 24.8.0esr-0+tails1~bpo70+1 (Firefox 24.8.0esr + Iceweasel patches + Torbrowser patches).
    • Add an I2P boot parameter. Without adding "i2p" to the kernel command line, I2P will not be accessible for the Live user. I2P was also upgraded to 0.9.14.1-1~deb7u+1, and stricter firewall rules are applied to it, among other security enhancements.
    • Upgrade Tor to 0.2.4.23-2~d70.wheezy+1 (fixes CVE-2014-5117).
    • Upgrade Linux to 3.14.15-2 (fixes CVE-2014-3534, CVE-2014-4667 and CVE-2014-4943).
    • Prevent dhclient from sending the hostname over the network (#7688).
    • Override the hostname provided by the DHCP server (#7769).
  • Bugfixes

    • Don't ship OpenJDK 6: I2P prefers v7, and we don't need both (#7807).
    • Prevent Tails Installer from updating the system partition properties on MBR partitions (#7716).
  • Minor improvements

    • Upgrade to Torbutton 1.6.12.1.
    • Install gnome-user-guide (#7618).
    • Install cups-pk-helper (#7636).
    • Update the SquashFS sort file, which should speed up boot from DVD (#6372).
    • Compress the SquashFS more aggressively (#7706) which should make the Tails ISO image smaller.
