As of January 2017, there'll be a New Year's gift from Google. They're to begin labelling HTTP pages that transmit passwords or ask for credit card details as "Not Secure". They're doing this to discourage the use of websites not employing encryption. Thank you Google. http://thehackernews.com/2016/09/chrome-https-security.html

The bug in the 16.04 version of APT (1.2.15) that caused the installer to crash for a small number of people, has been resolved. The new installation ISOs are now available for download from our main website: https://peppermintos.com/. Both the Direct and Torrent Downloads are active. If you encounter any problems with the installation, please let us know through our Community Forum: http://forum.peppermintos.com/. Team Peppermint thanks everyone for their patience.

Team Peppermint advise that all users update their systems to kernel 4.4.0-36 now.

You can update by clicking the "shield" icon in the system tray, then click the "Refresh" button, then once refreshed, click the "Install Updates" button .. once finished, REBOOT.

Another method is via the command line by running these commands in sequence:

sudo apt-get update

Followed by:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Once the upgrade has completed, it's VERY IMPORTANT you reboot your machine(s). Once rebooted run:

uname -a

This is to check you're now running the 4.4.0-36 kernel.

This kernel fixes the 8 known vulnerabilities listed here:
http://www.ubuntu.com/usn/usn-3070-1/.
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3070-1. 29th August, 2016. linux vulnerabilities. A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Summary. Several security issues were fixed in the kernel. Software description. linux - Linux kernel. Details.

Further Info
Peppermint 3 and 5 will both receive patched kernels, but...
There has been no updated kernel released upstream for the lts-utopic kernel used in Peppermint 6 .. if you're worried about these vulnerabilities we'd suggest you move to the lts-xenial kernel via the LTS Enablement Stack:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack
If you're using Peppermint 6 and require assistance, please ask on the forum:
https://forum.peppermintos.com
where we'll be happy to help.

Finally a country that's bold enough to do the right thing. It takes a former Communist state to be an advocat of computing freedom - well done Bulgaria: https://itsfoss.com/bulgaria-open-source/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=hats_off_to_bulgarias_new_open_source_policy_and_other_linux_stories.
