cristalinux.blogspot: Up until recently, I was mostly a GNOME user. The tide has shifted lately, though, and I have found myself leaning towards KDE desktops more and more.

  • Sick of memorizing passwords? A Turing Award winner came up with this algorithmic trick
    Manuel Blum, a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University who won the Turing Award in 1995, has been working on what he calls "human computable" passwords that are not only relatively secure but also don't require us to memorize a different one for each site. Instead, we learn ahead of time an algorithm and a personal, private key, and we use them with the website's name to create and re-create our own unique passwords on the fly for any website at any time.

    A car manufacturer recalled more than a million cars following security concerns about car hacking, as the National Insurance Crime Bureau issued an alert about a "mystery device" being used to break into vehicles by defeating the electronic locking system of later-model cars. So-called connected car "convenience technology" could put consumers at risk. "Right now, what has happened is the digital key fob has become a way for someone to steal your car," NICB investigator James "Herb" Price said.
