Clonezilla Live 2.4.9-17 Disk Cloning Live CD Now Powered by Linux Kernel 4.7.8

Fully synced with the Debian Sid (Unstable) software repositories as of October 21, 2016, Clonezilla Live 2.4.9-17 is now powered by the Linux kernel 4.7.8, which, unfortunately, is not patched against the infamous “Dirty COW” vulnerability. Also, the Linux 4.7 kernel series has now officially reached end of life with version 4.7.10. A new mechanism was implemented in the ocs-get-part-info to detect Microsoft Reserved Partitions (MSR) and BitLocker full-disk encrypted partitions, the “nodmraid” option was removed from the boot parameters, and it’s now possible to browse directories recursively when mounting an image repository.
