The LEDE Community is proud to announce the fourth service release of stable LEDE 17.01 series.
LEDE 17.01.4 “Reboot” incorporates a fair number of fixes back ported from the development branch during the last two weeks.
Some selected highlights of the service release are:
Linux kernel updated to version 4.4.92 (from 4.4.89 in v17.01.3) Security fixes to brcmfmac, hostapd, mac80211, toolchain/gdb and the Linux kernel Assorted platform fixes for ar71xx, bcm53xx, ramips and x86
While this release includes fixes for the bugs in the WPA Protocol disclosed earlier this week, these fixes do not fix the problem on the client-side. You still need to update all your client devices. As some client devices might never receive an update, an optional AP-side workaround was introduced in hostapd to complicate these attacks, slowing them down. Please note that this does not fully protect you from them, especially when running older versions of wpa_supplicant vulnerable to CVE-2017-13086, which the workaround does not address. As this workaround can cause interoperability issues and reduced robustness of key negotiation, this workaround is disabled by default.
Due to the version bump of toolchain/gdb to 8.0.1, at least GCC 4.8 is now required to build LEDE.
