Tor Browser 3.6-beta-2 is released
This release is an important security update over 3.6-beta-1. This release updates OpenSSL to version 1.0.1g, to address potential client-side vectors for CVE-2014-0160.
The browser itself does not use OpenSSL, and is not vulnerable to this CVE. However, this release is still considered an important security update, because it is theoretically possible to extract sensitive information from the Tor client sub-process.
Here is the complete changelog since 3.6-beta-1:
- All Platforms
- Update OpenSSL to 1.0.1g
- Bug 9010: Add Turkish language support.
- Bug 9387 testing: Disable JS JIT, type inference, asmjs, and ion.
