Quick 1.2 update

February 7th, 2008 by Chris Buechler

We found some issues with lacking input validation on CARP IPs that allowed people to enter invalid configurations. Depending on what exactly is misconfigured, it could cause the system to enter a panic loop, rendering the system unusable.

Since this can be a significant problem, we have been thoroughly testing this area to ensure the improved input validation and other logic fully eliminates these possibilities for user error and typos to blow up a system.

Expect 1.2 final within a week.

    Ok, a little more than a week. :) We need to finish one last thing, and have been busy. One more week tops, we’re shooting for a specific date that’s much closer.

  25. Montes Says:

    Thanks for the update, I can’t wait for the release. We really appreciate your hard work and efforts to make a flawless release.

    I had a very serious problem last weekend. I had all my network down (about 50 users). The problem was a udp flood form inside to outside. I think that the firewall had to detect and stop it. I had the script that I found in the user directory. I can send you the script for your analisis.

    Cheers

    Jose: Your comment is unrelated to this post, support questions are not allowed here to keep things orderly. Please keep support issues on the forum or mailing list.

    Configured properly, pfSense is the only open source firewall distro that can control something of that nature very effectively. You can get more help on that topic by posting to the forum. Thanks
