The Tails Project announced that it has launched the new version TAILS 3.6, the Linux-based operating system that suffers from "amnesia" for the sake of our private data. Yes, the operating system for anonymity has a new update, the same system that they say Edward Snowden, the former CIA agent, used to surf online anonymously and preserving his privacy. Well now you too can enjoy the new version of this LiveCD.
Tails 3.6 will now be powered by a fairly recent kernel, the Linux 4.15, with all the improvements that this implies, such as the patches for Meltdown and Specter that will improve the security of our systems, preventing these vulnerabilities from being exploited. Remember that it is an operating system oriented towards privacy and anonymity, therefore the security aspect is especially pampered ...
In addition to these improvements, they have also fixed some bugs from previous versions and added software packages in most up-to-date versions As it's usual. For example, the latest version available to date of TOR Browser has been added as well as the Tor client / server implementation, as well as updates for Electrum 3.0.6 and Mozilla Thunderbird 52.6.0 components, as well as other functionalities and improvements.
The unknown developers have done a good job, and the list of news doesn't end there. Now we have a new command line tool called pdf-redact-tools to clean up the metadata of PDFs, in addition to having the ability to convert. It's called pdf-redact-tools. We will also find an AppArmor enabled profile by default for Mozilla Thunderbird for better security, and other improvements such as the automatic installation of video drivers to improve GPU support, etc.
