Tor Project Releases Tor (The Onion Router) 0.2.8.8 with Important Bug Fixes

Tor 0.2.8.8 is now the latest and most advanced version of the software designed to allow you to connect to the anonymous Tor (The Onion Router) network if you don’t want to be tracked by various government agencies or other third-party tracking apps. It replaces Tor 0.2.8.7 released last month with the new “Bifroest” bridge authority. The biggest changes in Tor 0.2.8.8 are fixes for two bugs that caused the software to crash, as reported by users from previous maintenance versions from the 0.2.8.x series. The first one being related to the OpenBSD platform, but it could also affect other supported UNIX and Linux OSes as well.
