Distribution Release: Tails 4.8



  • Tails (The Amnesic Incognito Live System) is a Debian-based live DVD/USB with the goal of providing complete Internet anonymity for the user. The project’s latest release, Tails 4.8, focuses on security updates. “This release fixes many security vulnerabilities. You should upgrade as soon as possible. New features: We disabled the Unsafe Browser by default and clarified that the Unsafe Browser can be used to deanonymize you. An attacker could exploit a security vulnerability in another application in Tails to start an invisible Unsafe Browser and reveal your IP address, even if you are not using the Unsafe Browser. For example, an attacker could exploit a security vulnerability in Thunderbird by sending you a phishing email that could start an invisible Unsafe Browser and reveal them your IP address. Such an attack is very unlikely but could be performed by a strong attacker, such as a government or a hacking firm.” Further details can be found in the project’s release announcement.
