Trisquel GNU/Linux is a 100% libre Ubuntu-based Linux distribution. The project has published a new update to its 9.0 series. The new media mostly offers security fixes, particularly dealing with out of date certificates. The new 9.0.1 media also removes some binary blobs found in the Linux kernel. “This minor update to the 9.x “Etiona” series is intended to provide an up to date set of ISO images, both for use as an installation medium and as a live environment with newer packages. This addresses two main security concerns in the 9.0 original ISO images: An outdated Certificate Authority collection (package ca-certificates) included an expired root certificate for LetsEncrypt, resulting in blocked access to repositories for new packages or updates. Overlooked binary blobs were found in versions of Linux-Libre prior to v5.14. Updated packages were added to the Trisquel repositories to correct the issue, and new ISO images were produced to include the fix. Along with those fixes, the release includes any other security update published upstream since we published Etiona, and the latest version of the Mozilla-based “Abrowser” (v93).” Further details may be found in the project’s release announcement.
