The Parsix GNU/Linux development team informs the community about the availability of new security updates for their Parsix GNU/Linux 8.5 "Atticus" operating system.
There's been a lot of updates released upstream, on the Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 "Jessie" software repositories during the month of July 2016, and Parsix GNU/Linux 8.5 "Atticus" users have now received them all, starting with the massive Linux 4.1.28 LTS kernel update .
Among the packages that received security fixes during the month of July, we can mention Apache2, MariaDB 10.0, PHP5, collectd, Xen, libgd2, libdbd-mysql-perl, NTP, Perl, phpMyAdmin, OpenSSH, Squid3, MySQL 5.5, Pidgin, Horizon, python-django, and mysql-connector-java.
As usual, you'll find all the details that you need to know about what exactly was patched in these security updates on the http://www.parsix.org/wiki/Security web page, where you'll also find detailed instructions about how to install them on your Parsix GNU/Linux 8.5 "Atticus" operating system.
Parsix GNU/Linux 8.10 "Erik" is now the latest stable version
We recommend that you always keep your Parsix GNU/Linux installation up to date with the latest security patches and software releases as soon as these are available in the main repositories of the distribution. Therefore, if you're still using Parsix GNU/Linux 8.5 "Atticus" on your PC, please install all the above updates immediately.
On the other hand, we reported the other day that the Parsix GNU/Linux 8.10 "Erik" operating system was officially released as the latest stable and most advanced version of the project. It's available for download right now via our website, and it recommended that you upgrade to this version as soon as possible.
