Whonix 9.1 Maintenance Release - Testers wanted!

[html]

Download:

http://mirror.whonix.de/9.1/

Changelog between 9 and 9.1:

– updated frozen sources (contains apt-get and bash security fixes)

anon-gw-anonymizer-config: Fixed startup of Tor due to an AppArmor conflict as per bug reports in the forums https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/topic,559.0.html. Needed to out commented “/usr/bin/obfsproxy rix,” in file “/etc/apparmor.d/local/system_tor.anondist” because The Tor Project added “/usr/bin/obfsproxy PUx,” to file “/etc/apparmor.d/abstractions/tor”. Therefore users of obfsproxy will now end up running obfsproxy unconfined, because we would now require a standalone obfsproxy AppArmor profile. Note, that this is not a Whonix specific issue. Also if you were using plain Debian, no one redistributes an obfsproxy AppArmor profile at time of writing.

Besides the small problems mentioned in the other thread, all if fine here. Whonix News is giving me a confusing message however about version 9.1 being outdated and that I need to manually download a newer one because auto-updates don’t work.

Please keep in mind that the ‘ShellShock’ isn’t completely fixed at time of writing.

Fixed that by updating Whonix News.

Nothing we can do about this at the moment. Not fixed in Debian yet.

It’s now fixed within 4.2+dfsg-0.1+deb7u3. I have posted this, because i think it would be good to have a fix for this major bug within the upcoming maintenance release. :wink:
