pfSense – Update auf Version 2.1.5 mit neuen Features und Behebung von Sicherheitsfehlern

Die Entwickler der OpenSource Firewall pfSense, haben die Version 2.1.5 bereit gestellt. Damit wurde diese Version nur kurz nach der 2.1.4 veröffentlicht und ist primär als Sicherheitsupdate anzusehen. Neben den Bugfixen wurden aber auch neue Features integriert. Das Update sollte wenn nicht schon geschehen, zeitnah durchgeführt werden. Es ist relativ einfach über die WebGUI durchzuführen, wobei auf zusätzlich installierte Pakete geachtet werden sollte.

  • Change Cancel button to call history.back() when editing firewall aliases to fix issues with IE 11 #3728

  • Added filter.so to list of extensions loaded for filter_var() support.
  • The pfSense PHP module was setting the subnet mask of lo0 to /0, which could break some routes and cause other unintended routing side effects.
