  • I don't know how many times I have to say it… DO NOT USE THAT LUSCA PACKAGE. It changes your pfSense packages to no longer pull from the official package repository, which means you will no longer get any of the official packages, and will get packages built by who knows who. For all I know, there are back doors built into those packages. The fact that person has refused for years to commit that work to our main package repo where we can build the ports from known-good source is telling I think. Not to mention anyone pointing there has had numerous problems with that repo in general, given it's on some free hosting somewhere and frequently goes down.

    In case someone still does not take the above warning seriously, here's a quick look at the domain from where the packages are distributed:

    Sure like hell I'd host a security project there or install something from there on my firewall… oh yeah, absolutely...
