long-awaited Linux based media player device ready to ship

Filed under
Hardware

The Popcorn Hour C-200, the latest 'Networked Media Tank' device from Syabas (the makers of the popular A-100 and A-110) is finally ready. Online orders directly from Popcorn Hour can be placed starting from tomorrow (27th August 2009 12:00AM PST) and shipping is supposed to start on September 3rd.

The C-200 main enhancements compared to the A-110 are the full support for Blu-ray discs, as it incorporates a slot where a standard 5.25" PC Blu-ray drive can be inserted which makes the C-200 a fully featured BD+ Blu-ray player, the new much faster processor which will allow for better-looking and faster to navigate GUIs, and the back-lit LCD display on the front of the unit, which means the player can be used for music playback without switching on the TV.

Security News

  • Report: Linux security must be upgraded to protect future tech
    The summit was used to expose a number of flaws in Linux's design that make it increasingly unsuitable to power modern devices. Linux is the operating system that runs most of the modern world. It is behind everything from web servers and supercomputers to mobile phones. Increasingly, it's also being used to run connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices, including products like cars and intelligent robots.
  • security things in Linux v4.6
    Hector Marco-Gisbert removed a long-standing limitation to mmap ASLR on 32-bit x86, where setting an unlimited stack (e.g. “ulimit -s unlimited“) would turn off mmap ASLR (which provided a way to bypass ASLR when executing setuid processes). Given that ASLR entropy can now be controlled directly (see the v4.5 post), and that the cases where this created an actual problem are very rare, means that if a system sees collisions between unlimited stack and mmap ASLR, they can just adjust the 32-bit ASLR entropy instead.
