2.2.1 RELEASE Now Available [feedly]



----
2.2.1 RELEASE Now Available
// pfSense Digest

pfSense® software 2.2.1 release is now available, bringing a number of bug fixes and some security fixes.

Security Fixes

A note on the OpenSSL "FREAK" vulnerability:

  • Does not affect the web server configuration on the firewall as it does not have export ciphers enabled.
  • pfSense 2.2 already included OpenSSL 1.0.1k which addressed the client-side vulnerability.
  • If packages include a web server or similar component, such as a proxy, an improper user configuration may be affected. Consult the package documentation or forum for details.

Bug Fixes

Upgrade Guidance

As always, you can upgrade from any previous version straight to 2.2.1. For those already running any 2.2 version, this is a low risk upgrade. For those on 2.1.x or earlier versions, there are a number of significant changes which may impact you. Pay close attention to the 2.2 Upgrade Notes for the details.
