Unigine Develops City Traffic System, A Driving Simulator

Phoronix - 1 hour 44 min ago
While the Unigine Engine sadly hasn't fully rode the Linux gaming wave with there still being very few games powered by this visually stunning engine that has supported Linux for many years, they are at least finding commercial success in other areas -- namely around simulation and industrial licenses. One of the company's recent endeavors is with a driving simulator...

KDE's Semantic Desktop: Nepomuk vs. Baloo

LXer - 1 hour 46 min ago
One of the most disliked features of the early KDE SC 4 releases was the developers' attempt to establish the semantic desktop. The tools to further this goal are Nepomuk and Akonadi. While Nepomuk tries to interconnect meta data from different desktop applications, Akonadi is a service that stores and retrieves data from PIM applications like mail, calendar and contacts. Together, they pave the road to allow users to find data, structured and connected by tags, ratings and comments, covering different file formats. On top of that, Strigi performs the indexing that enables users to find data with simple search terms in KDE's file manager Dolphin.

Action required: Password reset on all Gentoo services

Gentoo News - 2 hours 26 min ago

Recent versions of OpenSSL were found to be affected by an information disclosure vulnerability related to TLS heartbeats, nicknamed Heartbleed. It allows attackers to read up to 64kb of random server memory, possibly including passwords, session IDs or even private keys.

After the public disclosure on April 7, we have confirmed that several services provided by Gentoo Infrastructure were vulnerable as well. We have immediately updated the affected software, recreated private keys, reissued certificates, and invalidated all running user sessions. Despite these measures, we cannot exclude the possibility of attackers exploiting the issue during the time it was not publicly known to gain access to credentials or session IDs of our users. There are currently no indications this has happened.

However, to be safe, we are asking you to reset your passwords used for Gentoo services within the next 7 days. You need to take action if you have an account on one of the following sites:

  • blogs.gentoo.org
  • bugs.gentoo.org
  • forums.gentoo.org
  • wiki.gentoo.org

After 7 days, we will be removing all passwords to avoid abuse. For more information and the full announcement, visit http://infra-status.gentoo.org/notice/20140413-heartbleed.
