Endian firewall 2.5.2 community version now available

After a long time, we are ready to announce the Endian Firewall Community 2.5.2 release.
Although this release is mainly a bug fixing one, a list of the main changes and updates is to follow:

  • Antivirus
    ClamAV has been updated to the most recent version to make sure signature
    updates will continue to work.
  • Anti-spyware
    Lists are now being provided by PhishTank instead of Malware Domains. This
    not only results in more sites being recognized correctly but also allows us to
    show an information page with a link to PhishTank's description of the malicious
    website instead of displaying an empty page.
  • Hardware support
    Support for various hardware devices has been added. This support for USB modems
    as well as drivers for network interface cards and hard disk controllers.

Once the download is completed, please register to the community: http://www.endian.com/en/community/efw-updates/
In a minute you will receive an email including a step by step procedure to update the software. Do not cancel this communication, as it will be useful anytime we got a new release.
The 2.5.1 version users should follow the instructions received at the registration time via email to update the software. If you’re using an older version than 2.5.1, try to get the update following the aforementioned instructions. In case of failure, please download the new version and re – install the system.
