Errata for BLFS Version 8.0
- The details of microcode updates, particularly for late loading, reflected how things used to be several kernel versions ago. This has been updated for the 4.9 kernel in the development version of the book.
Known Security Vulnerabilities
A few packages, such as openssl, are good at reporting that a new release fixes a vulnerability. For some others, such as firefox, virtually every new release includes security fixes. But in many cases the fixes are not documented as security issues.
Updates to the packages in the book may be available in the development version of the book.
