Today, we are releasing Core Update 57 for IPFire 2.11. It is again a minor bugfix and security update.
These components have been updated to address various security issues or potential DDoS attacks:
- php: security update to 5.3.10
- apache: security update to 2.2.22
- squid: update to 3.19
A bug in the GUI of the outgoing firewall was fixed, which automatically disabled a rule after it has been edited (#10022).
vim does now work better on remote consoles like PuTTY. Thanks for patches to Mathias Schneuwly (#10021).
The welcome banner that is shown to Cisco’s roadwarrior VPN client is now customized and says “Welcome to IPFire – An Open Source Firewall Solution”.
