  • 25 Smartphone Models Found Shipping With Severe Firmware Flaws: Defcon 2018

    Smartphones from small as well as big OEMs are under the radar. OEMs such as ZTE, Leagoo, and Doogee have been included in the list of insecure Android device manufacturers previously as well. Leagoo and Doogee have been reported to come preinstalled with apps that have banking trojans.

  • Aporeto Security and Red Hat OpenShift in Action

    In this short video, we demonstrate how Aporeto integrates with Red Hat OpenShift and leverages the platform’s native capabilities to extract application identity metadata to enforce security.

    Aporeto enforces security uniformly in hybrid and multi-cloud environments and abstracts away the complexities of the underlying infrastructure. As you leverage OpenShift to expand beyond the data center, you can use Aporeto to extend your security policies no matter where your application and its services run.

  • Oracle has flagged a vulnerability that could “completely compromise” customer databases

    Oracle is calling on its customers to immediately patch a security vulnerability that can lead to “complete compromise of the Oracle Database”.

    The vulnerability was found in the Java VM component of the vendor’s database server, but attacks may “significantly impact additional products”, according to a notice on the US National Vulnerability Database.

  • Open-world vehicle builder 'TerraTech' has left Early Access

    I absolutely love games that let me build something, drive around and blow stuff up so I've been enjoying my time with TerraTech which is now out.

    Unlike Robocraft, TerraTech isn't just about building a powerful vehicle and destroying everyone. While it does have a PvP multiplayer mode, the main dish is actually the open-world single-player environment. That's not all it has to offer, as it also has creative mode to do whatever you want, a sumo fighting mode and a gauntlet challenge mode as well.

  • Rings of Saturn is a hard sci-fi, top-down space simulator coming soon to Linux

    Space sim Rings of Saturn [Official Site] was announced earlier this month, with a promise of a realistic top-down experience and it actually looks surprisingly good.

    Seems to have come out of nowhere, at least to me, I can't remember hearing literally anything about this before discovering it today. While the trailer doesn't really offer all that much, what it does show makes me firmly want to know more.

  • SC Controller, incredibly useful UI/Driver for the Steam Controller has a new release

    If you ever have issues with games not picking up your Steam Controller correctly, you should probably take a look at the excellent SC Controller [GitHub] project.

    The latest release v0.4.4, that was made available yesterday adds in some interesting new features. A pretty important one, is the new "relative joystick camera" mode, which acts just like the Joystick Camera mode on Steam. Some games (like twin-stick shooters) don't always hold the position of your thumb on the right pad to continually fire, this mode should fix it for games where it doesn't work as expected.

  • Insurgency: Sandstorm is looking real good in the latest videos, Linux version should come in the first couple updates

    Insurgency: Sandstorm [Steam] is the new tactical FPS from New World Interactive that will be coming to Linux. There's new videos out to show it off and we have an update for you about Linux support.

  • DXVK Merges Direct3D 10 API Support

    Separate from the "DXUP" initiative, the popular DXVK project for accelerating Direct3D 11 atop Vulkan now has support itself for Direct3D 10.

  • DXVK expands with Direct3D 10 over Vulkan in Wine, also info on the new Direct3D 9-to-11 project

    There's so many incredible things going on around Wine right now it's hard to keep track. DXVK is now expanding to support Direct3D 10 over Vulkan in Wine.

    Talking about it on the official GitHub account in this issue, the main developer of DXVK said it works in a similar way to DXUP with it being a "very thin wrapper around the existing D3D11 interfaces, while allowing for better interoperability between the two APIs.".

Canonical/Ubuntu: Newsletter, Kubernetes and Design

  • Deploying Kubernetes on Public Clouds is hard – or is it?

    Recently, there’s been talk about how Kubernetes has become hard to deploy and run on virtual substrates such as those offered by the public clouds. Indeed, the cloud-specific quirks around infrastructure provisioning, including storage, networking assets such as load balancers, and overall access control (IAM) differs from cloud to cloud provider. It is safe to assume that it also differs between your on-prem IaaS implementation or virtualized infrastructure and the public cloud APIs.

    With all the public Container-as-a-Service (CaaS) offerings available to you, why would you deploy Kubernetes to a generic IaaS substrate anyway? There are many reasons for doing so.

A Look At The Windows 10 vs. Linux Performance On AMD Threadripper 2990WX

Complementing the extensive Linux benchmarks done earlier today of the AMD Threadripper 2990WX in our review (as well as on the Threadripper 2950X), in this article are our first Windows 10 vs. Linux benchmarks of this 32-core / 64-thread $1799 USD processor. Tests were done from Microsoft Windows 10 against Clear Linux, Ubuntu 18.04, the Arch-based Antergos 18.7-Rolling, and openSUSE Tumbleweed.

[$] The importance of being noisy

LWN.net - Pon, 08/13/2018 - 23:12
Hundreds (at least) of kernel bugs are fixed every month. Given the kernel's privileged position within the system, a relatively large portion of those bugs have security implications. Many bugs are relatively easily noticed once they are triggered; that leads to them being fixed. Some bugs, though, can be hard to detect, a result that can be worsened by the design of in-kernel APIs. A proposed change to how user-space accessors work will, hopefully, help to shine a light on one class of stealthy bugs.

DeepMind pri diagnozi očesnih bolezni ne zaostaja za zdravniki

Slo-Tech - Pon, 08/13/2018 - 21:00
DeepMind pri diagnozi očesnih bolezni ne zaostaja za zdravniki Slo-Tech - DeepMind je svojo pot začel kot izvrsten igralec iger, a se je umetna inteligenca kmalu začela učiti tudi uporabnejših reči. Pred dvema letoma je DeepMind začel sodelovati z očesno kliniko Moorfields v Londonu, kjer je bil cilj umetno inteligenco naučiti prepoznati bolezni, ki jih lahko diagnosticiramo s fotografij oči. Številne bolezni je moč diagnosticirati s pregledom oči, na primer diabetično retinopatijo (bolezen očesne mrežnice zaradi povečane koncentracije sladkorja v krvi) ali starostno degeneracijo rumene pege. Dve leti pozneje so prvi rezultati objavljeni v Nature Medicine. Povzetek: DeepMind je boljši od ljudi. Več na Slo-Techu.

Sedaj se tega ne bodo več spraševali, saj so čez vikend na Kitajskem onemogočili dostop do Reddita, s čimer je šel po poteh Googla, Facebooka, YouTuba in podobnih. Več na Slo-Techu.

Pirate Bay praznuje 15 let obstoja

vir: WikipediaTorrentFreak - Verjetno najstarejša, najznamenitejša in najtrdovratnejša spletna stran za množično kršenje avtorskih pravic te dni praznuje petnajstletnico obstoja. Pirate Bay je v tem času prehodil dolgo pot. Njegov nastanek leta 2003 je generiral kanček anarhizma, predvsem pa mladostno uporništvo proti avtorskim, moralnim, pa tudi politično-ekonimskim avtoritetam družbe. Nastal je na švedskem, kjer so se v zdaj že nekdanjem združenju Piratbyrån zbrali...

Arris ponudil prvi usmerjevalnik po standardu EasyMesh

vir: The VergeThe Verge - Maja letos je organizacija Wi-Fi Alliance predstavila standard EasyMesh, ki naj bi olajšal povezovanje večih usmerjevalnikov v domače omrežje. Naprave skladne z njim, bi delovale druga z drugo, ne glede na proizvajalca, kar je bilo doslej v praksi skoraj nemogoče. Grajenje take mreže je bilo namreč v praksi najlažje izvedljivo, če so se med sabo povezovali izdelki ene same znamke. Več na Slo-Techu.

Musku bodo Teslo pomagali kupiti Savdijci

Musku bodo Teslo pomagali kupiti Savdijci Slo-Tech - Ko je Elon Musk minuli teden napovedal, da želi izvesti odkup Tesle in njen umik z borze, je završalo. Musk ima v lasti okrog 20 odstotkov podjetja, njena tržna kapitalizacija pa znaša okrog 70 milijard dolarjev. Kje bi Musk dobil toliko denarja, da bi izvedel največji odkup v zgodovini? Zakaj bi to sploh želel in kaj imajo pri vsem tem Savdijci, ki so kupili 5 odstotkov podjetja za 2 milijardi dolarjev? Več na Slo-Techu.
