Tor Browser 3.6.4 and 4.0-alpha-1 are Released

The fourth pointfix release of the Tor Browser 3.6 series is available from the Tor Browser Project page. This release features an update to OpenSSL to address the latest round of OpenSSL security issues. Tor Browser should only be vulnerable to one of these issues – the null pointer dereference. This release also features an update to Tor to alert users of the RELAY_EARLY attack via a log message, and a fix for a hang that was happening to some users at startup/Tor network bootstrap.

Tor Browser 3.6.4 Update

  • Update OpenSSL to 1.0.1i
  • Update Tor to 0.2.4.23
  • Update Tor launcher to 0.2.5.6
  • Update NoScript to 2.6.8.36
  • Update Torbutton to 1.6.11.1

In addition, the first alpha of Tor Browser 4.0 series was also released. This alpha release paves way for the upcoming autoupdater by reorganizing the directory structure of the browser. This means that in-place upgrades from Tor Browser 3.6 (by extracting/copying over the old directory) will not work. This release also features Tor 0.2.5.6, and some new defaults for NoScript to make the script permissions for a given url bar domain automatically cascade to all third parties by default.
