Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) Will Reach End of Life on July 18th, 2019

Canonical announced today that the Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) operating system is approaching end of life later this month, urging users to upgrade to a newer release.

Released last year on October 18th, Ubuntu 18.10 was dubbed as Cosmic Cuttlefish by Canonical’s CEO Mark Shuttleworth. It shipped with the GNOME 3.30 desktop environment and the Linux 4.18 kernel series, and featured a fresh new look based on the in-house developed Yaru theme, formerly Communitheme.

Ubuntu 18.10 also brought support for unlocking your PC with your fingerprint, mobile phone integration, as well as support for managing Thunderbolt devices. However, being supported for only nine months, Ubuntu 18.10 will reach end of life on July 18th, 2019, which means it will no longer receive security or software updates.

“Ubuntu announced its 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) release almost 9 months ago, on October 18, 2018.  As a non-LTS release, 18.10 has a 9-month support cycle and, as such, the s… (read more)

IPFire Open-Source Linux Firewall Now Patched Against SACK Panic Vulnerabilities

Michael Tremer announced the release of IPFire 2.23 Core Update 134, a new maintenance update to the open-source, hardened, and versatile Linux-based firewall that adds the latest security fixes and component updates.

IPFire 2.23 Core Update 134 is here to address the recently discovered SACK Panic (CVE-2019-11477 and CVE-2019-11478) security vulnerabilities, affecting Linux kernel’s networking subsystem processed TCP Selective Acknowledgment (SACK) segments. These are serious flaws and could allow remote attackers to cause a so-called SACK Panic attack (denial of service).

“The Linux kernel was vulnerable for two DoS attacks against its TCP stack. The first one made it possible for a remote attacker to panic the kernel and a second one could trick the system into transmitting very small packets so that a data transfer would have used the whole bandwidth but filled mainly with packet ov… (read more)

Linux Mint 20 and Future Releases Will Drop Support for 32-bit Installations

The Linux Mint project announced today that they have decided to follow Canonical’s decision to drop support for 32-bit system in future releases of their Ubuntu operating system.

As you might know, Canonical announced last month that they plan to drop support for 32-bit systems all together, not only for new installations, but they ended up realizing that some major projects like Wine and Steam still need 32-bit libraries, so starting with Ubuntu 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) they’ll only build select 32-bit packages.

Many users were asking if Ubuntu-based distributions will be affected by this major change, which shouldn’t be a surprize to  anyone in 2019, so it looks like Linux Mint, one of the most popular Ubuntu-based operating systems out there will follow on Ubuntu’s steps to drop support for 32-bit systems in future releases, starting with Linux Mint 20.

“The announcement from Canonical that 32-bit support was to be dropped in Ubuntu 20.04 means that the future Linu… (read more)
