  • fpm2 was removed from Debian because its upstream development is dead.[42]

Forum Topic[edit] [archive]


fpm2 is installed by default.


Many thanks to Tails team for their discussion on the topic of password managers. [43]

  41. KeePass 2's reaction to a MITM bug report against its Update Check: 8.2.2016 @ 15:45: Received response from Dominik Reichl: The vulnerability will not be fixed. The indirect costs of switching to HTTPS (like lost advertisement revenue) make it a inviable solution. [archive]
