The next Core Update with number 107 is available for testing and mainly comes with a fix for the Dirty COW vulnerability in the Linux kernel. Please help us testing!

Dirty COW

This update patches the IPFire Linux kernel against a recently disclosed vulnerability called Dirty COW. This is a local privilege escalation bug which could be used by a local attacker to gain root privileges.


As always, we would like to ask all users to participate in testing which will highly improve the quality of this update.

Please report any bugs to our bug tracker and provide any feedback on our development mailing list.
