SD4L 1.1-0 released

The stable version 1.1-0 of ScramDisk for Linux has been released. It has reworked the kernel driver and now handles input and output requests in separate kernel threads for each container. Thereby, input/output errors are fixed which occasionally occured in previous versions under heavy load. Moreover, handling of large containers of 2 GB and above has been fixed. Finally, the passphrase input lines for scramdisk containers are now restricted to 39 characters each. This was 40 characters previously.

SD4L 1.0-2 released

The stable version 1.0-2 of ScramDisk for Linux has been released. It fixes two bugs and solves a small feature request. The bugs concern mounting of ext3 file systems with option 'auto' and unmounting from kernel if file system mount failed. The new feature disables access right checks on block devices to be mounted as containers.

ScramDisk for Linux 1.0-2 opens and creates TrueCrypt containers as well as ScramDisk containers. The supported format of TrueCrypt containers is that of TrueCrypt version 4.1 or later using the LRW mode. Moreover, ScramDisk 1.0-2 can encrypt devices such as partitions on a hard disk or storage media entirely without indirection by a container file. ... read more

SD4L 1.0-1 released

The stable version 1.0-1 of ScramDisk for Linux has been released. It fixes two vulnerabilities by which a normal user could obtain root privileges. Now, for normal users, containers are mounted in a way such that the execution of programs with setuid-bit from within the container is inhibited. Moreover, version 1.0-1 forbids mounting a container on a mount point to which the user has no write access. This is so, because otherwise a normal user could mount his container over a system directory and thereby replace system files with his own ones. We advise every user of SD4L to update to version 1.0-1.... read more
