An unlikely partnership will soon bring Oracle's Red Hat-based Linux distribution to Ubuntu's cloud.

Back to the Source: Why FOSS is More Important Than Ever

We used to take these freedoms for granted with all of our personal property. We can mod our homes, we can buy random items, glue glitter and googly eyes on them and resell them as holiday crafts, we can do anything we want with our own stuff. Except for our digital property. There we run into vast mazy minefields of laws and Digital Rights Management and prohibitions and the idea that we don't own it, but merely license it, so it's not really ours and the vendor has the right to control it, and to control what we do with it.

New “Shellshock” patch rushed out to resolve gaps in first fix

After the discovery that a patch designed to repair the “Shellshock” vulnerability in the GNU Bourne Again Shell (bash) still allowed for an attacker to execute commands on a remote system, Red Hat, Ubuntu, and other Linux distribution providers have pushed out a second fix to the vulnerability. At the same time, security researchers and service providers have detected a surge in scans for systems with the vulnerability, as would-be attackers seek to take advantage of the bug.

Eight Up and Coming OpenStack Cloud Projects

  • eWEEK; By Sean Michael Kerner (Posted by red5 on Sep 27, 2014 4:24 AM EDT)
  • Groups: Cloud
When the open-source OpenStack cloud platform first got started back in 2010, there were only two components, with Rackspace bringing in the Swift storage project and NASA contributing the Nova compute piece. Over the last four years, OpenStack has expanded significantly beyond its initial two core contributors and two primary components.

Youth Digitals just moved into their new offices, tucked away in a nondescript office park in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. It's a big step up from their humble beginnings, when company founder and director Justin Richards hauled a laptop to his students' houses, tutoring them on web and graphic design. Their first office was barely more than a closet, and now they have an expansive space complete with conference rooms, recording studio space, and their own 3D printer.

Do you have SELinux enabled on your Web Server? Lots of people are asking me about SELinux and the Bash Exploit. I did a quick analysis on one reported remote Apache exploit: http://www.reddit.com/r/netsec/comments/2hbxtc/cve20146271_r...

Shows an example of the bash exploit on an apache server. It even shows that SELinux was enforcing when the exploit happened.

A Norsified Linux for Windows and OS X wobblers

First things first: the name. The next Elementary OS was codenamed Isis – as in the Egyptian goddess of magic and life. That was until Islamic State became a thing and the distro’s team decided such associations were unwanted. Now it’s Freya, as in the Norse goddess of love and, er, war. Conflict aside, what a nice update to last year's Luna release of Elementary Freya is shaping up to be. The Norsified Elementary builds on Ubuntu 14.04, though, as always, the Elementary developers pick and choose when it comes to the distro's base tools.

Compiling FreeFileSync For Centos/RHEL/Oracle/Scientific Linux 7

FreeFileSync is a great file synchronization program for Windows and Linux. There is no build for Centos, so I paid a 100 Unobtanium bounty to get it working on Centos 7.

You Know What Bugs Me About FOSS…?

I like KDE. I use KDE, now that I have hardware with enough horsepower (namely a Toshiba laptop with 4GB of RAM) to operate it in a relatively easy manner. In addition, KDE is an outstanding desktop environment, far too complicated for what I normally do, but that’s OK. It’s not my favorite desktop environment –- that distinction continues to go to Xfce –- but still, I have nothing but love for KDE.

Cloud 5: Cloud standards, taxing the cloud, and the fate of CloudStack

This week, we look at an attempt to define cloud standards (but where are the cloud companies), municipalities wanting to tax cloud services (and why it's a bad idea) and Oracle's Mark Hurd going after Microsoft in the cloud (but is it the right target).

Shellshock: How does it actually work?

By now, you’ve probably seen this magic incantation, or variations, sent all around as a quick test for vulnerability to CVE-2014-6271, known as “Shellshock”, because in this post-Heartbleed world, apparently all security flaws will have cute over-dramatic names.

Rackspace Helps Kill A Patent Troll: Rotating Your Smartphone Is No Longer Infringing

Over the last few years it's been great to see companies like Newegg and Rackspace decide that they're not going to give in to bogus patent troll lawsuits. As we've discussed, it's almost always easier, faster and cheaper to just settle and pay up whatever the troll is asking for. That's part of why trolling works. Fighting a patent lawsuit -- even a totally bogus one (i.e., not infrigning) -- on a clearly invalid patent will still cost many hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars. If the troll is offering to settle for tens of thousands of dollars, many, many companies will do the obvious short-term cost-benefit analysis and settle.
