Security researcher H.D. Moore has released a new malware search engine and its underlying code to help searchers find malware code that Google has indexed. But Google isn't exactly happy about it.
The first thing to keep in mind is that open source does not mean "free." You can open source your software without giving it away for free; how you do so depends on the license you choose, which I'll discuss in the section "Common Issues" later in this article.
With the release of SUSE Linux Enterprise 10, Novell has a mighty big ally backing it up in the form of Hewlett-Packard. The IT giant, currently riding a wave of renewed momentum, has thrown its support behind SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop and Server, both released Monday.
No, I'll probably not stop using Debian GNU/Linux, at least not right now. But they have disappointed me. A lot.
Kerio Mail Server has several configuration options to protect against spam email. For maximum protection, you should investigate and set all appropriate items. Under the Security Options tab for the SMTP server are several limits and controls you can set.
With the introduction of the GNU GPLv3, the GNU Lesser General Public License (L-GPL) has seen much less attention. This has changed with the recent GPLv3 conference in Barcelona, and I think it has changed for the better.
Instead of doing a preferred clean install as i usually do, while browsing the kubuntu website i noticed it's possible to do an upgrade and it didn't seem complicated and time consuming.
If monitoring log files has become too much to manage, there is a simple tool called swatch that will help you get a handle on the most important log information. Vincent Danen tells you how to set up swatch.
No one will argue with the fact that it is much harder to buy a personal computer with Linux than a Windows PC. But suppose it did not have to be quite that hard to get one? And suppose that the various vendors could all meet in the middle to lend you a helping hand?
The Free Standards Group (FSG), a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing and promoting open source software standards, today announced Linuxprinting.org, the de facto standard repository for printer drivers on Linux, is merging with the FSG's OpenPrinting workgroup and will be integrated and supported in the Linux Standard Base (LSB).
We've all been there. We press the wrong key, we do some silly mistake, and suddenly, one or more of our file systems refuse to work. Whenever this happens, the first thing we hear is "You should have made a backup", the dreaded sentence that we'll never listen to. Let's face it, we're stupid, and we don't backup.
A beta version of Firefox 2.0, the open source browser taking the Internet by storm, was released late last week and it is fast becoming my preferred browser. Here I'll look at just a few of the changes and new features that really make this browser work for me.
The strength of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is its openness and transparency, and community support. Anyone can contribute, not just elite coders with lush geekbeards and ratty sandals. So what can a non-coder do?
A good system administrator is always looking for ways to make life a bit easier. The Levanta Intrepid M, a turnkey Linux management appliance, is one way to smooth out some of the rough edges of system deployment and make things run just a bit smoother in your IT environment. I spent some time using the Intrepid M appliance, and found it to be a well-designed product. Too bad the pricing makes it unsuitable for some IT budgets. So, how does it work?

There are millions of Ubuntu reviews swarming the net , so what makes this one different ? Well , it’s written by a complete idiot , who’s worked on Windows most of his life…thats’ ME. In this post I am going to review stuff that an ordinary user might use.
After suffering through version 1.0 many years ago, I thought Xandros would be the least likely of the commercial desktop GNU/Linux distributions to succeed. Each subsequent release since 1.1 has changed my mind a little bit, and now with version 4.0 of its home desktop edition, I'm at last convinced that Xandros is positioned for success. This should be the desktop operating system that you recommend to your Windows-hating friends and family.
Nagios is a host and service monitor designed to inform you of network problems before your clients, end-users or managers do. The monitoring daemon runs intermittent checks on hosts and services you specify using external "plugins" which return status information to Nagios. When problems are encountered, the daemon can send notifications.
3DRealms has released the dedicated linux server for Human Head's just released sci-fi FPS, Prey. This package includes all the required files to host your own server, including install instructions to get you going.
There was a time when running Linux on a Windows Server would have been considered taboo by Microsoft. Times do change.
The latest Ubuntu release, Dapper Drake, was quite a few weeks ago, so why review it now? After all, there are plenty of other reviews lying around. Well, there are a number of reasons.
