Weekly Debian News #1

Filed under
Humor

As a regular reader of the "Debian Weekly News" I must say that I am very sad to see it go.

I laughed at the MLM (Mailing List Morons) and their zany antics, wept at the plight of all of those poor poor orphans, and rejoiced at the news of new packages arriving in the night (presumably delivered by the stork).

So, it is with great pleasure that I hereby step up to the plate, eat a delicious helping of spagetti, step back from the plate, and offer my assistance in this most dire hour of need.

Yes, please be welcome to the first issue of the "Weekly Debian News" (title subject to change - possibly "Weekly Debian Nudes", because that would be really neat).

So, on with the news...

Amarok is broken! Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!!!!!

Full Story.

  • Adobe patches zero-day vulnerability used to plant gov't spying software
    Adobe has patched a zero-day vulnerability used by the BlackOasis APT to plant surveillance software developed by Gamma International.

  • IoT Cybersecurity: What's Plan B?
    In August, four US Senators introduced a bill designed to improve Internet of Things (IoT) security. The IoT Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2017 is a modest piece of legislation. It doesn't regulate the IoT market. It doesn't single out any industries for particular attention, or force any companies to do anything. It doesn't even modify the liability laws for embedded software. Companies can continue to sell IoT devices with whatever lousy security they want.

  • Abuse of RESTEasy Default Providers in JBoss EAP
    Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) is a commonly used host for Restful webservices. A powerful but potentially dangerous feature of Restful webservices on JBoss EAP is the ability to accept any media type. If not configured to accept only a specific media type, JBoss EAP will dynamically process the request with the default provider matching the Content-Type HTTP Header which the client specifies. Some of the default providers where found to have vulnerabilities which have now been removed from JBoss EAP and it's upstream Restful webservice project, RESTEasy.

Motorola Moto X4 Android One review: a Nexus by any other name

That’s been a tough pill for many fans of the prior Nexus phones to swallow, as they frequently offered a lot of specs and performance for a lot less money than other smartphones. You could realistically get a great Nexus phone for under $500 without having to give up the traits that make them great: clean software, fast performance, and timely updates. Enter Motorola’s new Moto X4 Android One smartphone. While not technically a Nexus phone, it shares many of the same qualities that made the Nexus line so loved. Clean build of Android? Check. Promise of fast updates and years of software support? Check. Reasonable cost? Check. The $399 X4 won’t appeal to everyone. It’s not meant to compete with the Pixel or other premium phone in terms of features or performance, and its biggest limitation is that it’s only available on Google’s own Project Fi network. (Though it comes unlocked and works with other networks, the only way to buy this flavor of X4 is to be a Fi customer.) But if you’ve been holding on to that aging Nexus 5X hoping something would come along and pick up its mantle, the Moto X4 Android One version is it. Read more
