Some of the world's best threat detection platforms have been bypassed by custom malware in a demonstration of the fallibility of single defence security. Five un-named top advanced threat detection products were tested against four custom malware samples written by researchers at Crysys Lab, Hungary.
Ha, from ongoing discussions surrounding Systemd/Init in Debian, anybody could have predicted this was going to happen sooner or later. Well, it has happened. A fork of Debian has been announced by the “Veteran Unix Admin collective.”

You can interface a Raspberry Pi with Arduino components – now learn how to program them from the Pi and control robots like the Makeblock. Learning to code is one of the best things about owning a Raspberry Pi for a lot of people. Python and C are easy enough to start with on the Pi and you can get great results in a short time. When it comes to physical computing and making, though, not much beats using the Arduino IDE to control the open source controllers, servos and sensors associated with the system. Once set up, we can also use the Pi to program the Makeblock robot we reviewed in issue 142 of Linux User & Developer, using either the built-in commands or your own code.
The usage share of web browsers is dominated by a few mature applications. Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Opera account for around 95% of all desktop web browsing activity. However, there are a myriad of other web browsers that are worth investigating.

Technologic released a fast-booting headless PC/104-expandable SBC, running Debian on a PXA16x SoC, and with a Lattice FPGA and wide temperature operation. The TS-7250-V2 SBC provides an upgrade path for customers using the circa-2004 TS-7250 or circa-2006 TS-7260 single board computers, says Technologic Systems. The PC/104 form-factor board offers a choice of the 1GHz, ARM9-based PXA-168 processor, which is also found on Technologic’s recent TS-4740 computer-on-module, or the similar, 800MHz PXA166, both part of Marvell’s Armada 100 series.
Cisco first got involved with the open-source OpenStack cloud platform in 2011 with the Bexar release and initially was focused mostly on networking. Over the last several years, Cisco's OpenStack involvement and product portfolio have grown beyond just networking. In a video interview with eWEEK, Lew Tucker, vice president and CTO of Cloud Computing at Cisco, detailed his firm's OpenStack platform efforts.
Google's Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps are a lot of things—they're fast, they're convenient, and they're available on both iOS and Android—but you couldn't call them "powerful." Even the Web versions of Google's productivity software are pretty basic compared with the feature-stuffed behemoth that is Microsoft Office, and the mobile apps are minimalist by comparison.
See how these groups are joining forces: Open Food Network, Farm Hack, Open Source Beehives, Open Source Seed Initiative, and Growstuff.
"He who receives ideas from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine receives light without darkening me." —Thomas Jefferson We can't get around it, so we'll say it upfront. Food is essential to life. What's more, ensuring open access to the resources, knowledge, and land we need to feed ourselves is political. In opposition to corporate control and intellectual property, we need systems and processes which emphasize sharing and collaboration for food systems work.
Three months ago, the Electronic Frontier Foundation inaugurated a monthly tradition in which they wrote about a "Stupid Patent of the Month." The first patent they publicized was basically a description of a doctor's "computer-secretary." Since then, they've highlighted a vague software patent owned by a serial litigant, a patent on filming a yoga class, and a patent with a formula for curing cancer (a combination of "sesame seeds, green beans, coffee, meat, evening primrose seeds," among other things.)
This month, EFF shines a light not on an off-the-wall lone inventor, but on a source that some may find surprising: a public research institution.
