Tails 4.13 is out

Tails version 4.13 is out! This release fixes many security vulnerabilities and you should upgrade as soon as possible.

If you don’t already know, tails is a kind of computer-in-a-box. You install it on a DVD or USB drive, boot up the computer from the drive and, voila, you’re pretty close to anonymous on the internet. At its core, Tails is a version of the Linux operating system optimized for anonymity. It comes with several privacy and encryption tools, most notably Tor, an application that anonymizes a user’s internet traffic by routing it through a network of computers run by volunteers around the world.

You can find more info on Tails here. And if you’re already a Tails user, I urge you to make a donation. There are many ways to contribute. Help fight surveillance and censorship!

Tails 4.14 is scheduled for December 15.
