Hi everyone

I want to announce to the list that a new release of tor-ramdisk is out. 
Tor-ramdisk is an i686, x86_64 or MIPS 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.


This release addresses CVE-2014-0160 in openssl which was bumped to 
version 1.0.1g. The kernel was also bumped to 3.13.8 plus Gentoo's 
hardened-patches, but all other packages remain at the same versions as 
the previous release. Upgrading is strongly recommended.
