Fedora Core v5 LifeCycle Warning

For those that still insist on using Fedora Core in a production environment (which Fedora themselves do not recommend) be aware that Fedora Core 7 is due to be released in May. This means that support for Fedora Core 5 will be dropped a month later, meaning that you’ll have to upgrade your OS again unless you maintain all the installed applications yourself (a daunting task):http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/LifeCycleIf you want a more reliable (i.e. supported) OS then I would strongly recommend you choose RedHat Enterprise (3, 4 or 5) or the equivalent CentOS release, instead. These are enterprise level production OS’s which are supported for years, not months, as is the case for Fedora.

New csf v2.68 – Major Security Fix

Changes:

  • Security Fix – If you have LF_DIRWATCH_DISABLE on then this can lead to arbitray code being executed in the context of the user running lfd, i.e. root. This option has been disabled in the code until further notice. You will have to manually remove any reported files.
  • Tightened csf file ownerships on installation

*ALL INSTALLATIONS SHOULD BE UPGRADED ASAP TO AVOID POTENTIAL EXPLOITATION*You can upgrade csf either through WHM or from the root shell using:

csf -u

New csf v2.67 – Major Security Fix
