Tails 5.16.1

This emergency release addresses a critical vulnerability in the Linux kernel by updating it to version 6.1.38. The update resolves two specific vulnerabilities: one affecting Intel processors (CVE-2022-40982) and another impacting AMD processors (CVE-2023-20569). These vulnerabilities had the potential to enable a malicious application within Tails to illicitly access and pilfer data from other applications like KeePassXC and Electrum, including sensitive information like passwords and private keys. The likelihood of such an attack is low, requiring a potent adversary like a government or advanced hacking entity. As of now, there is no evidence of this attack being utilized in real-world scenarios. The release does not present any known issues and further details can be found in the provided changelog.
