Friday 24th of June 2016 08:58:39 AM
Container technology remains very big news, and if you bring up the topic almost everyone immediately thinks of Docker. But, there are other tools that can compete with Docker, and tools that can extend it and make it more flexible. CoreOS’s Rkt, for example, is a command-line tool for running app containers.

LXer: Letting Off Steam About Steam

Friday 24th of June 2016 07:04:17 AM
Having spent more considerable time trying to get Steam to work for another Linux distribution I have felt the need to have a rant. Why do we need to install a launcher, to install 300 megabytes of updates, to get 32 bit library errors? Why is it packaged so badly?

Reddit: Any other free remote servers available, like the AWS EC2-micro?

Friday 24th of June 2016 04:16:41 AM

I have a small script I'd ideally like to run in as many places as possible to scrape data from the internet, and so I'm looking for remote servers/VMs I can set up and run it from.

The only one I know of so far is the Amazon Web Services EC2-micro... Which is OK, but doesn't run quite as fast as I'd like...

Does anyone know of similar things? Country, location, capabilities, etc, don't matter at all so long as its free. The imprint this script makes is super tiny...

Cheers, and thanks in advance.

Reddit: Anyone get Nvidia hybrid graphics working well?

Friday 24th of June 2016 03:46:36 AM

I have a Thinkpad Yoga (i5 and 940m). I tried the regular Nvidia proprietary driver in debian but bumblebee is garbage performance because of the PCI bottleneck. Nvidia prime causes issues with GDM and has horrible screen tearing on lightdm. So is there anything that works well with a hybrid system to be able to switch GPUs on the fly?

Although I have covered a large number of science applications in the past, I haven't really lookedat too many options available within the KDE desktop environment. This has been due to myown biases in using a GTK-based desktop environment, but now I'd like to look at some of thepackages available for people who really like to use KDE on their ownmachines.

Friday 24th of June 2016 12:53:46 AM
It wasn't that long ago that the idea of managing petabytes of data, and monitoring giant busy computing clusters running thousands of services was something for the future and not the now. As it turned out, that was a mighty short future, and it's all happening now. These talks from MesosCon North America show how two different companies are solving configuration and data management issues with Apache Mesos and other tools.

Five reasons to switch from Windows to Linux

Linux has been in the ascendancy ever since the open source operating system was released, and has been improved and refined over time so that a typical distribution is now a polished and complete package comprising virtually everything the user needs, whether for a server or personal system. Much of the web runs on Linux, and a great many smartphones, and numerous other systems, from the Raspberry Pi to the most powerful supercomputers. So is it time to switch from Windows to Linux? Here are five reasons why. Read more

Security Leftovers

  • Chrome vulnerability lets attackers steal movies from streaming services
    A significant security vulnerability in Google technology that is supposed to protect videos streamed via Google Chrome has been discovered by researchers from the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev Cyber Security Research Center (CSRC) in collaboration with a security researcher from Telekom Innovation Laboratories in Berlin, Germany.
  • Large botnet of CCTV devices knock the snot out of jewelry website
    Researchers have encountered a denial-of-service botnet that's made up of more than 25,000 Internet-connected closed circuit TV devices. The researchers with Security firm Sucuri came across the malicious network while defending a small brick-and-mortar jewelry shop against a distributed denial-of-service attack. The unnamed site was choking on an assault that delivered almost 35,000 HTTP requests per second, making it unreachable to legitimate users. When Sucuri used a network addressing and routing system known as Anycast to neutralize the attack, the assailants increased the number of HTTP requests to 50,000 per second.
  • Study finds Password Misuse in Hospitals a Steaming Hot Mess
    Hospitals are pretty hygienic places – except when it comes to passwords, it seems. That’s the conclusion of a recent study by researchers at Dartmouth College, the University of Pennsylvania and USC, which found that efforts to circumvent password protections are “endemic” in healthcare environments and mostly go unnoticed by hospital IT staff. The report describes what can only be described as wholesale abandonment of security best practices at hospitals and other clinical environments – with the bad behavior being driven by necessity rather than malice.
  • Why are hackers increasingly targeting the healthcare industry?
    Cyber-attacks in the healthcare environment are on the rise, with recent research suggesting that critical healthcare systems could be vulnerable to attack. In general, the healthcare industry is proving lucrative for cybercriminals because medical data can be used in multiple ways, for example fraud or identify theft. This personal data often contains information regarding a patient’s medical history, which could be used in targeted spear-phishing attacks.
