    For the Firewalla Gold running current firmware/'Box Version' 1.971:

    • General distribution: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS,  aka 'Bionic Beaver' (EOL is April 2023)
    • Specific Ubuntu release under FW 1.971: Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS

    Most recent Ubuntu 18.04 LTS release: 18.04.5 LTS

    • I give the Firewalla developers the benefit of the doubt, that security vulnerabilities that were patched in releases 18.04.4 LTS & 18.04.5 LTS are either not revelant to the Firewalla Gold, and the ones that could be relevant have been manually patched by some other means...e.g. updating openssl manually or something like that (they're maintaining and continuing to develop a firewall and router afteralll)

    That being said, since Firewalla is intended to be educational as well as functional, can the Firewalla developers comment on this?

    For anyone interested in determining the Ubuntu release version running on their Firewalla (at least on the Gold), one way is to SSH into your Firewalla and run the command:

    lsb_release -a

    For example, here my terminal from when I ssh'd in to get the info to answer this question:

    pi@firewalla:~ (Firewalla) $ lsb_release -a
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description: Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS
    Release: 18.04
    Codename: bionic
