-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 ########################################################### UPR Security Notice UPRSN-08_01 December 04, 2008 several vulnerabilities ########################################################### Ubuntu Privacy Remix (UPR), based on Ubuntu 8.04 (LTS), is a live, read-only CD that seals off your private data from the outside world. It does this using encryption and isolation methods. This method of booting off a read-only CD provides a isolated and unmodifiable system that is exceedingly difficult to compromise by spyware. The following security issues affect the "Ubuntu Privacy Remix" releases prior 8.04_r1. Ubuntu Privacy Remix 8.04_r1 can be downloaded from https://www.privacy-cd.org/ A. UPR-specific - --------------- The UPR-Kernel was able to mount some RAID-Arrays, because the RAID-controllers are identified by the system as a SCSI-controller, even if (S)-ATA-Disks are used. For UPR this is a security issue, because removing the kernels ability of mounting local S-/ATA-Disks is part of the concept to seal off users to assure their privacy. - From the new Kernel we removed support for * all SCSI/IDE/SATA/SAS RAID-controllers * iSCSI HBAs * Fibre Chanel Controllers ... and some more. This solves https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/301285 The sources, the UPR-Kernel ist based on, were updated to Ubuntu source-package 2.6.24-22.45 because of security fixes. B.
