M$ patches more holes

Microsoft

Microsoft has released 10 security bulletins, three of them describing critical flaws that could let an attacker take complete control over a computer system.

The three critical security flaws, the company's highest threat level, affect the Windows operating system.

The software maker released other patches to address less serious problems with Windows, the Exchange server system, services for the Unix operating system, Microsoft's Interactive Training software for Windows, and ISA server, a network firewall program.

Microsoft said it was re-releasing three previous security bulletins: one for Windows, one for the .NET framework, and one for an SQL server scanning tool.

Some of the flaws affect computers with operating systems dating back to Windows 98. Users who have installed Microsoft's massive security update for Windows XP, Service Pack 2, also will need to install some patches unless they've signed up for automatic updates.

  • Edging Closer – ODS Sydney
    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.

  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
