WireX Communications is pleased to announce the release of Immunix
Secured Linux 7+.
Immunix Secured Linux 7+ is similar to RedHat 7.0, with security updates
for dozens of vulnerabilities, compiled with WireX's StackGuard and
FormatGuard modifications. The 2.2.19 Linux kernel is extended with
several Openwall technologies as well as WireX's SubDomain mandatory
access control technologies.
New in this release: RaceGuard, a kernel enhancement to prevent the
exploitation of temporary file race attacks. The RaceGuard USENIX
Security paper can be found here http://wirex.com/~crispin/raceguard.pdf
For more information on Immunix technologies, please see:
Immunix 7+ successfully competed in the Defcon Capture the Flag hacker
games. Although the Immunix team won second place, our Immunix OS
machine was never compromised: http://www.wirex.com/News/
Immunix 7+ can be purchased from WireX for $195. This price includes a
$195 coupon towards the purchase price of Immunix Secured Linux 7.3.
Immunix 7.3 will be released sometime this summer; updates for Immunix
7+ will cease shortly after Immunix 7.3 is released. We no longer
support Immunix 7.0.
Immunix 7+ also includes a coupon for a free Immunix t-shirt
