Posted by LinuxSecurity.com Team   
EnGarde Guardian Digital is happy to announce the release of EnGarde Secure Community 3.0.6 (Version 3.0, Release 6). This release includes several bug fixes and feature enhancements to the Guardian Digital WebTool and the SELinux policy, several updated packages, and a couple of new packages available for installation.

The following reported bugs from bugs.engardelinux.org are fixed in this release:

* #0000064 ADSL ppoe problem
* #0000066 Aliased eth0:X interfaces do not work with Shorewall

Several other bugs are fixed in this release as well.

New features include:

* Source packages are now available via the Guardian Digital Secure Network using APT. To use this functionality:

1) Add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list:
rpm-src gdsn://updates.guardiandigital.com/GDSNROOT rapier core

2) Update:
# apt-get update

3) Install the source package of your choice:
# apt-get source

NOTE: You must have the rpm-build and rpm-devel packages installed before you can install source packages.

* Three new SELinux booleans: mysql_network (Allow the MySQL daemon to use a network socket), sshd_anyport (Allow the SSH daemon to bind to a port other than 22), and httpd_content_over_ftp (Allow vsftpd to read/write /home/httpd files).

You may toggle these booleans with setsebool:

# setsebool (true | false)
