Hello everyone,

Please be informed that a couple of days ago it was found that liblzma, which is used to build BOINC Manager, was released with a severe vulnerability.

BOINC users are not affected, but just in case please update your BOINC 8.0.0 for Linux with the new 8.0.1 version:
Please keep in mind, BOINC 8.0.0 is still in alpha testing phase.

More details about this issue in my recent blog post:

Best regards,
