Reddit: Linux for an old cable box?

Friday 25th of November 2016 03:49:32 PM

I found an old cable box on the side of the road today, a D12-700. There's a USB port on the back, so I'm wondering if there's some obscure version of Linux that I could load on it. Is there anything that could work with it?

Phoronix: It Looks Like We'll Still See A GUI Control Panel For AMD Linux

Friday 25th of November 2016 01:06:11 PM
Earlier this year I exclusively reported on the "Radeon Settings" GUI control panel may be open-sourced for AMD Linux users but since then I hadn't heard anything publicly or privately about getting this graphics driver control panel on Linux for AMDGPU-PRO and the fully-open AMDGPU stack. But it looks like that it's still being worked on internally at AMD...

Phoronix: Yet More AMDGPU DAL Patches This Week For Testing

Friday 25th of November 2016 12:56:22 PM
It had been a few weeks since last seeing any new enablement patches for AMD's DAL display abstraction layer code, which is a big requirement for HDMI/DP audio, HDMI 2.0, potential FreeSync support, and also needed for next-generation GPUs. The lack of fresh DAL patches changed though this week when new patches were sent out and already another round of revising to this display code has now been mailed out for review...

  • Microsoft is reportedly sharing Windows 10 telemetry data with third-parties

    MICROSOFT HAS REPORTEDLY signed a deal with FireEye that will see it share telemetry data from Windows 10 with the third-party security outfit.

    So says Australian website ARN, which reports that Microsoft and FireEye's partnership, which will see the security firm's iSIGHT Intelligence tools baked into Windows Defender, will also see FireEye "gain access to telemetry from every device running Windows 10."

    Microsoft uses telemetry data from Windows 10 to help identify security issues, to fix problems and to help improve the quality of its operating system, which sounds like a good thing. However, with the company previously admitting that it's latest OS is harvesting more data than any version before it, Microsoft's mega data-slurp also raised some privacy concerns.

  • Hackers attack European Commission

  • 8 Books Security Pros Should Read

    Calling all infosec pros: What are the best books in your security library?

    On a second thought, let's take a step back. A better question may be: Do you have a security library at all? If not, why?

    Security professionals have countless blogs, videos, and podcasts to stay updated on rapidly changing news and trends. Books, on the other hand, are valuable resources for diving into a specific area of security to build knowledge and broaden your expertise.

    Because the security industry is so complex, it's impossible to cram everything there is to know in a single tome. Authors generally focus their works on single topics including cryptography, network security modeling, and security assessment.

    Consider one of the reads on this list of recommendations, Threat Modeling: Designing for Security. This book is based on the idea that while all security pros model threats, few have developed expertise in the area.

  • DoD Opens .Mil to Legal Hacking, Within Limits

    Security researchers are often reluctant to report programming flaws or security holes they’ve stumbled upon for fear that the vulnerable organization might instead decide to shoot the messenger and pursue hacking charges.

    But on Nov. 21, the DoD sought to clear up any ambiguity on that front for the military’s substantial online presence, creating both a centralized place to report cybersecurity flaws across the dot-mil space as well as a legal safe harbor (and the prospect of public recognition) for researchers who abide by a few ground rules.

  • Data breach law 'will create corporate awareness'

    The introduction of a data breach law requiring disclosure of consumer data leaks is important because it will make big corporates aware they need to be transparent about their state of security, the head of a big cyber-security firm says.

Maximizing the benefits of open source in IoT

With the dawn of the Internet of Things, software is making its way into every product, into every industry. And along with software come developers, who bring their beliefs, attitudes, expertise, and habits along with them. One of those is open source technology — a staple in the software industry since the 1980s, but a new and often scary concept for many traditional industries, whose businesses are built on protecting their assets and intellectual property. In this article, we will illustrate how open source technologies permeate every part of the IoT development stack, and outline how open source can be used as a means of market control as well as a booster of innovation and a way to tap into the IoT developer talent pool. The data have been collected from 3,700 IoT developers in 150 countries across the globe, surveyed in Q4 2015 and shines a light on how big a deal open source really is in IoT, why developers love it, and how companies can create a successful commercial strategy around the use of open source by aligning themselves with the values of that core stakeholder group that are developers.
