IPFire 2.27-Core173

The Qualcomm MSM Interface is a proprietary interface increasingly used by 4G and 5G cellular modems. Commencing with this Core Update, IPFire supports interacting with such modems, thus significantly expanding its hardware compatibility to QMI-only cellular modems, and providing a faster and more modern interface. Thanks to Michael for implementing this feature. On that occasion, he also refactored related networking code. Arne has updated the Linux kernel to the most recent stable series, 6.1.11, which has become the new long-term series. Aside from the usual improvements such major kernel updates bring like bug fixes, improved hardware support and security improvements, we took the occasion to bring several new hardening changes to IPFire users: System calls permitting processes to read or write other processes' memory are no longer provided by the kernel. On EFI systems supporting it, the firmware is now instructed to wipe all memory when rebooting, to hamper cold boot attacks. Landlock support has been enabled. GCC's 'latent entropy' plugin has been disabled, since it does not generate cryptographically secure entropy. Official announcement Download IPFire
