Security News

  • Friday's security updates
  • Impending cumulative updates unnerve Windows patch experts
    Microsoft's decision to force Windows 10's patch and maintenance model on customers running the older-but-more-popular Windows 7 has patch experts nervous. "Bottom line, everyone is holding their breath, hoping for the best, expecting the worst," said Susan Bradley in an email. Bradley is well known in Windows circles for her expertise on Microsoft's patching processes: She writes on the topic for the Windows Secrets newsletter and moderates the mailing list, where business IT administrators discuss update tradecraft.
  • Yahoo is sued for gross negligence over huge hacking
    Yahoo Inc (YHOO.O) was sued on Friday by a user who accused it of gross negligence over a massive 2014 hacking in which information was stolen from at least 500 million accounts. The lawsuit was filed in the federal court in San Jose, California, one day after Yahoo disclosed the hacking, unprecedented in size, by what it believed was a "state-sponsored actor." Ronald Schwartz, a New York resident, sued on behalf of all Yahoo users in the United States whose personal information was compromised. The lawsuit seeks class-action status and unspecified damages. A Yahoo spokeswoman said the Sunnyvale, California-based company does not discuss pending litigation.
  • Yahoo faces questions after hack of half a billion accounts
    Yahoo’s admission that the personal data of half a billion users has been stolen by “state-sponsored” hackers leaves pressing questions unanswered, according to security researchers. Details, including names, email addresses, phone numbers and security questions were taken from the company’s network in late 2014. Passwords were also taken, but in a “hashed” form, which prevents them from being immediately re-used, and the company believes that financial information held with it remains safe.

Red Hat News

  • Red Hat relabels OpenShift Enterprise to Container Platform
    Red Hat’s on-premises application serving software has been given a rename from OpenShift Enterprise to OpenShift Container Platform, at the same time adding a slew of enhancements to improve scalability and security. OpenShift started out as Red Hat’s platform as a service (PaaS) offering for application development centred on its JBoss enterprise Java platform, but was refocused around Docker and Kubernetes with the rise in popularity of containers for deploying applications. Now, OpenShift Container Platform 3.3 offers improved developer features and support for greater scalability, with the ability to handle both cloud-native and traditional applications, according to the big rouge one. “The latest updates to the platform enable customers to more fully make use of their container technology investments and better embrace a DevOps methodology. This gives developers their needed automation tools and helps operations teams to better scale to meet customer demand, both with the aim of bringing better applications to market more quickly,” Red Hat’s OpenShift chief Ashesh Badani said in a statement.
