Fedora 37 delayed two weeks due to a vulnerability in OpenSSL

Fedora 37

Ubuntu is often compared a lot with Fedora, but in reality they have little to do. Each one uses its base and its package manager, among other things, but they are often compared because they both release two versions a year and both use GNOME for their main version. Nor is the philosophy of launches very similar, more specifically the day, since Canonical sets it six months in advance and does not usually vary, while the one with the hat name is more willing to accept changes in this regard, something that it will do with the throwing of Fedora 37.

This has been published, for example, in your telegram channel. The message in Pavel Durov's messaging application has arrived later than another in another medium that said that the launch was going to be delayed by a week. New information says it will do two, so Fedora 37 will arrive in mid-November.

Fedora 37 will arrive on November 15

The exact release date of Fedora 37 has been moved to November 15, and the reason is a "critical" vulnerability in OpenSSL which has yet to be made public. The intention is to know the problem, patch it and, once without it, launch the new version of the operating system. They could release it as it is, but they have preferred to look after their users and that, once they use Fedora 37, they do so without a security flaw that they know exists.

Details about the vulnerability are not yet known. They will be released next Tuesday, when the first wrong message from the team said that Fedora 37 was due. At that time we will know how far the gravity goes and also if it affects other operating systems and which ones.

Fedora 37 could have been released in mid-October, but they delayed its arrival to fix another bug. With OpenSSL, the release will be delayed for a whole month. Among its novelties, it will use Linux 5.19 and GNOME 43.
