To all you systems administrators out there, wherever and whomever you are: Happy Systems Administrators Day! That's right, ladies, gentlemen and emacs users, the yearly holiday of sysadmin day is upon us!
This year marks the 17th annual sysadmin day and with any luck 17-fold increase in appreciation to some of the most frequently un-and-under appreciated people in any organization. You deserve a hurrah, some cake and – for some among you – your own private island.
No, this article will not be about coding dresses, however, we will show you 11 Linux t-shirts that will make a system administrator to look better, fun and knowledgeable. I promise that the t-shirts that you will see below will make you want to have each one of them.
The Linux operating system is seldom targeted, but it can happen, and whether to play it safe by using anti-virus and anti-malware software is a judgment call, Patrick Marshall writes. He also answers questions about emails that fail to arrive and Windows 10 installation.
This is yet another reason why sanitizing OpenAuth or other token urls to the minimal allowed to resolve (the hostname) is good practice.
So exactly what is the issue at hand?
Well LastPass as with most password managers that in some way connect to a sync or cloud mechanism, uses a cookie of sorts on all sites you setup with autofill ( no typing needed, great defense against keyloggers), however the issue is that the parser to determine if such a site is accessed / logged in leaves cleartext tokens in the url and takes a malformed url as username:password @ foo.tld i.e. email@example.com which allows an attacker on a machine that is logged in (without 2fa –more on this later) to spill the beans about all passwords in 2 ways.
After working for several weeks on our WikiRating:Google Summer of Code project Davide, Alessandro and I have slowly reached up to the level where we can now visualize the entire project in its final stages.
Just recently I realised that I started contributing 10 years ago. Coming from fvwm2 I had just started using KDE shortly before. Contributing started for me with the German translation of an amaroK 1.4 release announcement with … room for improvement (Yes, Amarok was amaroK back then :)). I made some suggestions, the translation team’s coordinator from back then asked for more and I delivered.
Two years later I started contributing to KDEGames a bit, mainly in KShisen to get some practice in software development.
My husband and I started using only Linux on our computers when we got married and I installed all paint programs I had available to test and find something that was close or better than Photoshop. I used GIMP for a couple of years, but more or less in 2012 I found Krita at the Ubuntu Software Center and tried it. And liked it. And never left it.
Gradio is a great little open-source desktop radio player app for Linux — and it just got even better.
The app now offers its own, independent volume control. This means you can adjust sound levels within the app, without affecting your system’s global sound levels, and nixes the need to dive into your desktop’s sound applet.
The development team behind Wireshark, the world's most popular open-source, cross-platform, and free network protocol analyzer software, announced the release of Wireshark 2.0.5 for all supported platforms.
This is the fifth maintenance update to the Wireshark 2.0 series, which is currently the latest stable and most advanced branch of the open source project used by numerous security experts around the globe for analysis and troubleshooting of network issues, with the ultimate goal of hardening the security of their networks.
According to the release notes, Wireshark 2.0.5 is here to resolved over 20 issues reported by users since the previous maintenance update, version 2.0.4, as well as to update the protocol and capture file support.
