SSL vulnerabilities in Amiga software
Harry 'Piru' Sintonen reveals security issues on Amiga SSL implementations. Critical vulnerabilities are found in IBrowse, SimpleMail and other programs.

Summary of the text file found at the title link:
  • IBrowse 2.4 is vulnerable to Man in the Middle attacks (sslsniff)
  • SimpleMail 0.40 is vulnerable to Man in the Middle attacks (sslsniff)
  • AWeb and IBrowse 2.4 support insecure SSL 2.0 and weak ciphers, enabling trivial attacks against the encrypted traffic
  • SimpleMail allows weak ciphers, enabling trivial attacks against the encrypted traffic.
  • AmiSSL is based on old version of OpenSSL, and several security vulnerabilities have been found since
  • YAM 2.9 has secure SSL implementation (barring the deficiencies in AmiSSL itself)

AROS: Survey on interest on AEROS for Sam4x0- and AmigaOne-X1000-boards
Under the title link Pascal Papara has announced to adapt his Linux-hosted AROS-distribution AEROS to the PowerPC-Boards Sam440ep (Flex) and Sam460ex developed by ACube Systems and AmigaOne X1000 developed by A-EON Technology working under AmigaOS 4, if at least 50 users register interest. - In this context he mentioned that by comparision for his Raspberry-Pi-version he has 300 registered users.

An advantage of AEROS - additional the access to Linux - compared to the native version of AROS developed by Jason McMullan for the Sam460ex, is that it can use the ABI-V1 back ports of Krzysztof 'deadwood' Śmiechowicz which among others make it possible to use Directory Opus 5.
