Tails 45 Is Out Run The Live Operating System With Secure Boot 640x367

Looking for an OS that protects your privacy and anonymity online? If so, you should be sure to check out the latest version of the Tails operating system.

Do you care about your anonymity and you use a Linux distro as your daily driver? Well then, you must be aware of the security-focused Debian Linux-based Tails operating system. If not, check out the latest version of Tails 4.5 which you can run directly from your USB stick without installation.

The new version 4.5 comes with several security bug fixes and vulnerabilities. Most importantly, the upstream Debian security flaws such as BlueZ and GnuTLS which allow attackers to access the target host system.

Other security updates include support for secure boot. You can now run Tails on your computer with secure boot enabled. This means your Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) firmware only allows the booting of authorized software.
