System Health – whats next?!

sep 04, 2015

Some of you may know I don’t like RRD graphs, at least not as they are. The issue is not just that the images are either too small or “obnoxiously large”, it’s more… They are static, difficult to use when tracking down an issue and when the scales are incomparable a lot of data gets […]

Hi guys, 15.7.10 is here with a larger number of third party updates as well as a security advisory for FreeBSD.

Hi everyone, What’s up! We are about to release new images to put a stake in the ground following roughly 500 commits since 15.7 was released in early July.

We’re half-expecting another stable update early next week just […]

OPNsense 15.7.2 Released

jul 10, 2015

Good day, it’s us. Again. Following the recent OpenSSL announcement of CVE-2015-1793 we are pushing out 15.7.2 earlier than expected. It is notable that FreeBSD 10.1 as well as LibreSSL are not affected. However, if you are running OPNsense with OpenSSL you should upgrade immediately. Services are not restarted automatically, so a reboot is advised […]
