This is the official release announcement for IPFire 2.17 – Core Update
91. This update comes with various security fixes – most notably fixes
for six security vulnerabilities in the OpenSSL library and two more
vulnerabilities in strongSwan.
OpenSSL security vulnerabilities
There are six security vulnerabilities  that are fixed in version
1.0.2b of openssl. This version contained an ABI breakage bug that
required us to wait for a fix for that and rebuild this Core Update.
Among these are fixes for the Logjam vulnerability and others that are
filed under CVE-2015-1788, CVE-2015-1789, CVE-2015-1790, CVE-2015-1792,
CVE-2015-1791, and CVE-2014-8176.
StrongSwan IPsec security vulnerability
In strongSwan 5.3.1, a security vulnerability that is filed under
CVE-2015-3991 was fixed. A denial-of-service and potential code
execution was possible with specially crafted IKE messages.
IPFire ships now version 5.3.2 which fixes an second vulnerability
Other package updates
A number of other packages have been updated: libnet 1.16, libxml2
2.9.2, libxslt 1.1.28, newt 0.52.19, slang 2.3.0, pcre 8.37
* The P2P block feature is now disabled by default on new installations.
There are many false-positive cases and the usage of P2P networks has
declined in the past so that we do not consider this a good default
setting any longer. Existing installations remain unchanged.
* DHCP Server: The list of static leases is now searchable. Static
leases created from the list of dynamic leases are now added and the
user menu will allow editing the new entry right away.
We strongly recommend to install this update as soon as possible and
reboot the system afterwards.
