  • Really update Firefox to 10.0.2

Please note that this time around, I made and signed the bundles as Erinn is travelling. I hope all the previous issues have been fixed, and would like to apologize for taking so long to get updated Linux bundles out. Please report any issues you find on our bugtracker.

You can find my gpg key's fingerprint on the signing keys page.

In early January we discovered that two of the seven servers that run directory
authorities were compromised (moria1 and gabelmoo), along with
metrics.torproject.org, a new server we'd recently set up to serve
metrics data and graphs. The three servers have since been reinstalled
with service migrated to other servers.

We made fresh identity keys for the two directory authorities, which is
why you need to upgrade.

Moria also hosted our git repository and svn repository. We took the
services offline as soon as we learned of the breach. It appears the
attackers didn't realize what they broke into -- just that they had
found some servers with lots of bandwidth. The attackers set up some ssh
keys and proceeded to use the three servers for launching other attacks.
We've done some preliminary comparisons, and it looks like git and svn
were not touched in any way. read more »
