I am pleased to announce the release of AFFLIB 3.6.0.
With this release, AFFLIB now compiles under "mingw" allowing us to
directly produce statically linked executables on Windows. The AFFLIB
release has been significantly shurnk as it no longer needs to include
libewf, openssl, and zlib.
You can now create your own AFFLIB Windows release on a Macintosh using
mingw and the script in bootstrap_mingw.sh. Or you can download our
precompiled Windows version from http://afflib.org/download/afflib_windows.zip

AFFLIB 3.0.2 is withdrawn
AFFLIB 3.0.3 is released
Dear AFF Users:
AFFLIB 3.0.3 has been released. This version fixes a bug in the AFF
encryption routines that was inadvertantly introduced between
AFFLIB 3.0.1 and AFFLIB 3.0.2. As a result, AFFLIB 3.0.2 has been withdrawn.
The bug in AFFLIB 3.0.2 resulted from a bug in a version of SHA256
that was bundled into AFFLIB between version 3.0.1 and 3.0.2. Both
SHA256 and AES256 are required for AFF encryption. Unfortunately, the
version of SHA256 that was bundled had a data-dependent bug. This bug
only affected systems which did not have a system-installed SHA256
As a result of this bug, all private implementations of cryptographic
functions have been stripped from AFFLIB. If you do not have an
OpenSSL library that has SHA256, you will not be able to use AFF
The practical result is that some users will not be able to use AFF
encryption without first updating their openssl library.
ATTENTION MACINTOSH USERS: APPLE'S 10.4 and 10.5 OPERATING SYSTEMS
SHIP WITH A VERSION OF OPENSSL THAT IS OUT-OF-DATE AND DOES NOT
INCLUDE SHA256. If you are using a Macintosh, you must download a copy
of OpenSSL that has SHA256 to use AFF encryption. You can easily
download a modern OpenSSL implementation using the Macports or fink
I apologize for this problem. To prevent it from happening, we've
improved the validation of AFFLIB that runs both when AFFLIB is built
and each time it runs.
