Latest IPFire Linux Firewall Release Adds Security Updates, Support for More Hardware

IPFire 2.25 Core Update 147 has been announced today by project maintainer Michael Tremer. This release comes about a month after the previous version, which deprecated support for 32-bit system with PAE, to update several core components and add-ons, as well as to patch some security vulnerabilities and fix other bugs. First, security, because it’s important for every operating system. IPFire 2.25 Core Update 147 includes a recent version of the Squid web proxy software that was patched against HTTP Request Smuggling and Poisoning attacks (CVE-2020-15049).
