Subject: Bodhi Linux 2.0.1 - Bug Fix Release

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Some of you might be slightly confused by this posting since our 2.0.0 release was published just five days ago. No piece of software is perfect and our 2.0.0 release is no exception to this. Since we released last Thursday our 2.0.0 discs have received over 15,000 downloads - a number the Bodhi team and I are extremely happy with. With this large influx of users we have received a piles of user feedback and bug reports - some of which need to be dealt with right away.

While it's paramount that IT pros have the requisite technical knowledge to do their jobs, it's also important that you have softer people skills to work well inside an organization.

Subject: ZoneAlarm: Defining the Difference Between Freeware and Free Software

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The other day, when my friend’s laptop spit-up a warning from ZoneAlarm that she was no longer protected, I stood over her shoulder and instructed her to update the firewall. The warning was basically a scare tactic, of course. Without the update she would still be protected, just as protected as she had been the day before. She just wouldn’t have any new whiz-bang features included in the update, nor would she be able to take advantage of any new security enhancements.We ran the default install. This was Windows, so there had to be a reboot. After that, we opened the browser to find that the homepage had been reset to a ZoneAlarm themed Google search page. We had not opted-in to any such change; the ZoneAlarm folks had just taken it on themselves to hijack Firefox’s revenue, which I didn’t think cricket.

Subject: Researcher creates proof-of-concept malware that infects BIOS, network cards

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Security researcher Jonathan Brossard created a proof-of-concept hardware backdoor called Rakshasa that replaces a computer's BIOS (Basic Input Output System) and can compromise the operating system at boot time without leaving traces on the hard drive. Brossard, who is CEO and security research engineer at French security company Toucan System, demonstrated how the malware works at the Defcon hacker conference on Saturday, after also presenting it at the Black Hat security conference on Thursday.

Subject: Talk Of A "Massive Power Regression" In Linux 3.5

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

For at least some hardware, it looks like the Linux 3.5 kernel has regressed and is burning through noticeably more power than its predecessor. Over the weekend a new mailing list thread began that was entitled "Massive power regression going 3.4-[he]gt[/he]3.5" pertaining to a power problem in this most recent Linux kernel release. This just wasn't a random user complaining of a "massive power regression" but James Bottomley, a Linux kernel developer veteran.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) has voiced concerns about what could happen to source code distributed under free software licences if the company providing the software goes bankrupt and enters insolvency proceedings. Especially in Germany, the current rules in this area of law are not well explored. Speaking to The H's associates at heise open, Matthias Kirschner, who coordinates German matters for the foundation, explained that a bankruptcy court in Germany could currently rescind the free software licence and all rights granted by it after the fact.

Microsoft could be making a huge strategic error by releasing the consumer version of the Surface tablet ahead of the enterprise one. If it has any hope at all in the tablet market, and I don't give it much of a chance, the enterprise side is clearly its best shot.
