Subject: [Tails-testers] [Tails-news] Tails 4.4.1 is out
This release is an emergency release to fix security vulnerabilities in _Tor
Browser_ and _Tor_.

You should upgrade as soon as possible.

## Included software

* Update _Tor Browser_ to [9.0.7](https://blog.torproject.org/new-release-tor-browser-907), which prevents [JavaScript from sometimes being enabled in the _Safest_ security level of Tor Browser](https://tails.boum.org/news/javascript_sometimes_enabled_in_safest/index.en.html).

* Update _Tor_ to [](https://blog.torproject.org/new-releases-03510-0419-0427), which fixes TROVE-2020-002, a major denial-of-service vulnerability that affects both Tor relays and clients. Using this vulnerability, an attacker could cause Tor to consume a huge amount of CPU, disrupting its operations for several seconds or minutes, and create patterns that could aid in traffic analysis.

* Update _Thunderbird_ to [68.6.0](https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/68.6.0/releasenotes/).

# Known issues
