Subject: fresh ISOs


Fresh ISO images of Owl-current for x86 and x86-64 (generated yesterday,
on October 25) are available on our FTP mirrors.  There are also direct
download links on the Owl homepage:

These ISOs use Linux as the kernel, and, compared to last
month's ISO snapshots, they contain updated versions of many packages
(vsftpd, iptables, passwdqc, cpio, e2fsprogs, strace, VIM, and xinetd),
as well as minor changes to some other packages.  As usual, the major
changes are documented:

Speaking of the kernel, Linux fixes a number of information
leak vulnerabilities.  One of these was already fixed in
(as used in last month's Owl-current ISOs), and the remaining ones may
or may not affect specific systems depending on both kernel and
userspace configuration.  The patch additionally fixes a
typo in one of the information leak fixes (CVE-2009-3612).
