Parrot 4.6 update released

Linux Distribution

the release of Parrot 4.6 update, after 3 months of heavy development. This has been an especially big three months for us as Parrot 4.6 is also our first release completely served by our network without SaaS services like cloudflare. Everything is on our infrastructure.

How to update

Don’t forget to use this command regularly (at least once a week) to receive the latest security updates and bugfixes from the Parrot repository.


Parrot Security KDE Edition

When we first added KDE, it was an experiment. We love Mate but we’d heard great things

about KDE and decided we could try and support two desktop environments. Because of the

work required to change everything from Mate to KDE. We started with KDE Home. The

feedback was immediate, you guys loved it. The recurring request since has been “how do I

add the tools”. We heard you and it is finally here! A Security edition featuring the KDE

Plasma desktop environment.

We now offer both MATE and KDE images for the Home and Security editions.

System Changes

Appearance

Our design team developed a new, ultra, awesome visual experience for Parrot 4.6,

feast your eyes on a new boot-splash animation and desktop background!

The desktop-base and parrot-wallpapers also received some love and are updated to reflect

such changes including the new Parrot appearence.

Note:The themes and icons are still the same.


APT now enforces https

We have modified our APT implementation to support https-to-http downgrades.

This allowed us to configure our repository as https by default. For visual reference

Parrot 4.6 is now configured to serve signed index files via https by default, and the mirror redirector is configured to redirect traffic to https mirrors when available. In case an https mirror is not available, the packages are downloaded by fallback http mirrors, but APT will still verify the signatures.

In other debian-based systems and previous Parrot OS versions, mirrors used http by default, and https is just an exception.

Http downloads don’t represent a security risk because gpg signatures are more effective

than ssl downloads in certifying repository integrity, as described on this website - https://whydoesaptnotusehttps.com/.

Although you can never eliminate risk of bad actors, we hope to increase the cost for

providers attempting to intercept or track user activities (i.e. knowing if a

user is installing specific software).


Improved drivers support

Parrot 4.6 includes the Linux 4.19 kernel which contains several security patches,

performance improvements and a better hardware support.

Moreover Parrot 4.6 features important updates for broadcom and other wireless chipset manufacturers,

and the Nvidia drivers were updated to the latest 410 version with better Quadro support. Debian Kernel Changelog - Linux changelog


Anonsurf has OpenNIC support

Anonsurf now integrates a new option to change from the system DNS servers to OpenNIC DNS resolvers.

OpenNIC is a community-driven dns resolver provider that respects

user freedom and allows domain resolution of some special top level domains.
