Recommended Posts

This is the hidden content, please

Tails OS is a live operating system that you can start on almost any computer from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card.

It aims at preserving your privacy and anonymity and helps you to:

  •     use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship;
  •     all connections to the Internet are forced to go through the Tor network;
  •     leave no trace on the computer you are using unless you ask it explicitly;
  •     use state-of-the-art cryptographic tools to encrypt your files, emails and instant messaging.

Tails OS 5.10 has been released.


    Update Tor Browser to 12.0.3.
    Ask for confirmation when starting without unlocking the Persistent Storage.

    Do you really want to start Tails without unlocking your Persistent Storage?
    Update our documentation on the Persistent Storage.

Fixed problems

    Avoid crashing when the download of an upgrade is stopped and resumed. (#18435)
    Solve a possible privilege escalation through a symlink attack. (#19424)

    Dennis Brinkrolf discovered that an adversary who could already run arbitrary code as the amnesia user in Tails 5.9, could have escalated their privileges to reading arbitrary files on the system. It might have been possible to use this as part of an exploit chain to gain root privileges.

Persistent Storage

    Avoid opening the Persistent Storage settings each time after login. (#19410)
    Solve some cases of failure to activate the Persistent Storage by bumping the unlocking timeout to 120 seconds. (#19432)
