    A new hardened Tor Browser release is available. It can be found in the 5.5a6-hardened distribution directory and on the download page for hardened builds.

    This release features an important fix for a crash bug in one of our patches. All users are encouraged to update immediately as this bug is probably exploitable if Javascript is enabled. The bug was not exploitable at High security level, or on non-HTTPS websites at Medium-High security level.

    Note: There is no incremental update from 5.5a5-hardened available due to bug 17858. We plan to have this fixed for the next release. The internal updater should work, though, doing a complete update.

    Here is the complete changelog since 5.5a5-hardened:

    • All Platforms
      • Update NoScript to 2.9
      • Update HTTPS Everywhere to 5.1.2
      • Bug 17931: Tor Browser crashes in LogMessageToConsole()
      • Bug 17875: Discourage editing of torrc-defaults
