A new version of the quintessential anonymous operating system has been released, This is Tails 2.2 the which brings important news with respect to its previous version.
Tails 2.2 surprises, since the final version is quite different from the last candidate version of this version, something that rarely happens almost neverHowever, in the world of anonymous connections you have to always be up to date and take everything to the millimeter.
Among its novelties, it stands out updating the famous Tor browser to version 5.5.3, the I2P update to version 0.9.24 and the update of the so-called Onion circuits with an extension that informs whether or not we are connected to the Tor network.
It should also be noted that you can now watch movies protected by DRM, a password manager that protects your data in the event of a power outage and a improving the integrity of your files(the latter has been done to prevent things like the Linux Mint attack).
Finally, lots of security updates and bug fixes have been made, something that is perhaps the most important thing in this operating system, since new security flaws are discovered every day that allow to know the identity of the users. Tails 2.2 promises absolute anonymity, therefore, they take great care to take care of every last detail in security.
If you did not know Tails, it is a Linux operating system designed to protect your anonymity on the network, which is recommended by Edward Snowden himself to keep you hidden, since it has many security mechanisms that other systems cannot. For example, to access the Tor network and .onion domains (Deep Web), it is much safer to do it through Tails than through another system, since Tails is loaded in Ram memory and does not let anyone see your disk hard (if you use Tor on Windows, more advanced users could steal your Cookies from other browsers and know who you are).
To download it, I advise you follow the wizard from here, since its installation is somewhat more complex than normal. Finally As always, I advise you to take extra precautions to reinforce your anonymity, such as using a Public Network (never use your home router to enter Tor), change the Mac address of the Network card, never activate plugins such as Java Script and renew your identity on the Tor Network every little bit .
