Depois de 6 meses desde o incidente de segurança que houve em Novembro de 2012 agora os binários foram liberados novamente e para quem costumar instalar os binários ao invés de compilá-los usando o ports, pode ficar feliz.
Abaixo o anúncio oficial:
Dear FreeBSD Community, Six months have passed since the November security incident which brought the Project's binary package building capacity offline; we are pleased to announce that all services are now restored. This has followed a significant effort to review security throughout the FreeBSD Project's infrastructure, and reengineer the package-building system to support greater compartmentalization and resilience. This includes the redports.org and ports QAT, generation and update of INDEX files, publication of binary package sets, and binary-package building itself. The revised infrastructure provided binary packages for the recent release of FreeBSD 8.4. We are now glad to announce that binary packages available again for 8.x, 9.x branches on i386 and amd64 architectures at the usual locations: ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-8.4-release/ ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/packages-8.4-release/ ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-9-stable/ ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/packages-9-stable/ Note that the previously missed binary packages for 9.1-RELEASE have been also recovered and can be found here: ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-9.1-release/ ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/packages-9.1-release/ However before trying any of these sites above please check your regional mirrors first by going to: ftp://ftp.<yourdomain>.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD Any additional mirror sites will be labeled ftp2, ftp3 and so on. More information about FreeBSD mirror sites can be found at: http://www.FreeBSD.org/handbook/mirrors-ftp.html Note that these are still the "old-style" packages. Port managers are currently working on introducing new-style (as known as pkgng) binary packages in the coming months, please check the FreeBSD ports announcements list for further gradual status updates: http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-ports-announce/ The Core Team thanks especially Peter Wemm, Mark Linimon, Simon Nielsen, Robert Watson, Erwin Lansing, Brad Davis, Bernhard Froehlich, Beat Gaetzi, Martin Wilke, Jonathan Anderson, George Neville-Neil, Sean Bruno, Colin Percival, and Bjoern Zeeb for their hard work on restoring the binary-package building cluster and the associated services, and Gavin Atkinson for maintaining and updating the compromise page.
