Subject: [tor-talk] Tor-ramdisk 20140801 released

Hi everyone

I want to announce to the list that a new release of tor-ramdisk is
out. Tor-ramdisk is an i686 or x86_64 uClibc-based micro Linux
distribution whose only purpose is to host a Tor server in an
environment that maximizes security and privacy. Security is enhanced
by hardening the kernel and binaries, and privacy is enhanced by
forcing logging to be off at all levels so that even the Tor operator
only has access to minimal information. Finally, since everything runs
in ephemeral memory, no information survives a reboot, except for the
Tor configuration file and the private RSA key, which may be
exported/imported by FTP or SCP.


tor was updated to which addresses CVE-2014-5117.  The kernel
was updated to 3.15.7+ Gentoo's hardened-patches-3.15.7-1.extras.  All
other packages are the same as the previous release.  It is
recommended that users upgrade immediately.  For more information see
