Tails 5.0 Linux users warned against using it "for sensitive information"

Tails developers have warned users to stop using the portable Debian-based Linux distro until the next release if they're entering or accessing sensitive information using the bundled Tor Browser application. Tails (short for The Amnesic Incognito Live System) is a Linux distro focused on protecting the users' anonymity (e.g., activists and journalists) and helping them circumvent censorship by forcing all connections to and from the Internet through the Tor network.

Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 splashes down on Win Server 2022

Windows Server 2022 now supports Windows Subsystem for Linux 2, as long as you don't mind installing a preview patch. Less than a week after users posted glum comments such as: "I don't think it's going to happen," it did, with the news coming from Microsoft Program Manager Craig Loewen last night.

Minimal, systemd-free Alpine Linux releases version 3.16

Version 3.16.0 of Alpine Linux is out – one of the most significant of the many lightweight distros. Version 3.16.0 is worth a look, especially if you want to broaden your skills.

The Benefits of Bug Bounty Programs

Ethical hacking might sound contradictory, but leveraging the skills of the ''white hat' hacker community has done a great deal for safety and security on the internet. Nowhere does this show more than through so-called bug bounty programs created to tackle different issues within the code. Many bug bounty programs focus on identifying issues within software or applications. However, others like ExpressVPN's Bug Bounty focus on server or website vulnerabilities.

Document your source code with Doxygen on Linux

When trying to familiarize yourself with someone else's project, you usually appreciate the comments left behind that help you understand the meaning of their code. In the same way, whenever you are programming, whether for yourself or for others, it is good practice to comment your own code. All programming languages offer a special syntax to mark a word, a line, or a whole section as a comment. Those areas are then ignored by the compiler or interpreter when the source code is processed.

Write C applications using Vely on Linux

Vely is a tool for writing web and command-line applications in C. Vely combines high performance and the low footprint associated with C programming with ease of use and improved safety reminiscent of languages like PHP. It's free and open source software, and licensed under GPLv3 and LGPL 3 for libraries, so you can even build commercial software with it.

DepthVista combines RGB and 3D Time of Flight depth cameras

Last week, e-con Systems launched the DepthVista camera which contains both an RGB and a Time of Flight (ToF) depth camera with a range of up to six meters. According to the company, the DepthVista can measure the distance from itself to a target object with an accuracy of < 1% depending on environmental conditions.

ISO establishes SBOM standard for open source development with SPDX

You’re in the news. But not with the headline you want. You’re not getting attention because of your choice of text editor or the number of spaces you use to indent code blocks. However motivating those preferences are for you and me, the non-technical world sees them as private choices. You find your code in the headlines for a different and unpleasant reason: open source dependency management.

HP and System76 partner to release high-end Linux laptop

Linux laptop player System76 is joining forces with HP to release a high-powered Pop!_OS-powered developer laptop.

Improve network performance with this open source framework

In the age of high-speed internet, most large information systems are structured as distributed systems with components running on different machines. The performance of these systems is generally assessed by their throughput and response time. When performance is poor, debugging these systems is challenging due to the complex interactions between different subcomponents and the possibility of the problem occurring at various places along the communication path.

Migrate databases to Kubernetes using Konveyor

Kubernetes Database Operator is useful for building scalable database servers as a database (DB) cluster. But because you have to create new artifacts expressed as YAML files, migrating existing databases to Kubernetes requires a lot of manual effort. This article introduces a new open source tool named Konveyor Tackle-DiVA-DOA (Data-intensive Validity Analyzer-Database Operator Adaptation). It automatically generates deployment-ready artifacts for database operator migration. And it does that through datacentric code analysis.

Original killer PC spreadsheet Lotus 1-2-3 now runs on Linux natively

A long lost native Unix version of the killer PC spreadsheet has not only been rediscovered, but almost unbelievably, it's been updated to create a native Linux version.

Introduction to VirtIO

In this document, we will be taking a look at the fundamentals of VirtIO from a technical standpoint as well as a deep dive into some of its key areas. This introduction to VirtIO is written assuming the reader has little to no working knowledge of VirtIO, but should also be a helpful refresher to those who are already familiar.

New audio server Pipewire coming to next version of Ubuntu

The next release of Ubuntu, version 22.10 and codenamed Kinetic Kudu, will switch audio servers to the relatively new PipeWire. Don't panic. As J M Barrie said: "All of this has happened before, and it will all happen again." Fedora switched to PipeWire in version 34, over a year ago now. Users who aren't pro-level creators or editors of sound and music on Ubuntu may not notice the planned change.

What is Lifecycle Manager in AWS EC2 Service

In this article, we will see how to use Lifecycle Manager to automate the creation, retention, and deletion of snapshots taken to back up our Amazon EBS volumes. This automation helps us to protect valuable data by enforcing a regular backup, retain backups, reduce storage costs by deleting older backups.

12 essential Linux commands for beginners

When operating on the Linux command line, it is easy to get disoriented, which can have disastrous consequences. I once issued a remove command before realizing that I'd moved the boot directory of my computer. I learned to use the pwd command to know exactly which part of the file system I was in (and these days, there are command projects, like trashy and trash-cli, that serve as intermediates when removing files).

AMD Robotics Starter Kit based on Zynq Ultrascale+ XCK26

AMD launched the Kria KR260 Robotics Starter Kit which is built around the Kria K26 Zynq UltraScale+ XCK26 System-on-Module (SoM) that entered the market last year. The KR260 has similar specs as the Kria KV260, however, the former is optimized for industrial applications instead of vision AI applications.
