IPFire 2.27 - Core Update 181 is available for testing

It is time to test the latest version of IPFire: It comes with a large number of security updates in OpenSSL, Suricata, Apache & Samba as well as a number of kernel fixes.

Under The Hood

This update features yet another kernel update based on Linux 6.1.61. It brings various security & stability fixes as well as improving IOMMU handling on ARM. To improve security, we have  followed Google and disabled io_uring for the time being as it seems to have a lot of security issues.

We have also switched from eudev to the upstream udev which is now part of systemd as eudev is no longer maintained and was lagging behind upstream.

Security Updates


  • A long standing issue in OpenVPN has been fixed where the web UI offered to download a configuration package in an incorrect format when no password was configured ( #11048)
  • Other package updates: lynis 3.0.9, Postfix 3.8.2, sysvinit 3.08, Tor, Zabbix Agent 6.0.22
