Gaming

Valve's SteamOS engineers have pushed earlier today the SteamOS 2.121 update to the stable "brewmaster" channel, bringing users a newer kernel and all the latest security updates from the upstream Debian GNU/Linux repositories.

Two weeks ago, Valve promoted the SteamOS 2.121 update to the brewmaster beta channel, announcing that it upgraded the kernel packages to Linux kernel 4.11.8 to fix a crash with the PlayStation 4 Dual Shock controller when used with the Steam for Linux client.

SteamOS 2.121 Beta also shipped with all the latest security updates from the Debian GNU/Linux 8 "Jessie" software repositories, as well as support for the Flatpak open-source Linux application sandboxing and distribution framework and its dependencies, making possible for users to install third-party apps easier.

  • The Silver Case, a remaster of the original 1999 title is now available on Linux

    Today we gain another remaster of a classic game. This time it's 'The Silver Case' [GOG, Steam] which originally released in 1999, many years later it was remastered and release in 2016 and now we have it too.

    According to my research, the game wasn't available in English before this remaster, so it's fantastic to not only see it revived, but localized for a wider audience too.

  • SimAirport, an airport design and management game is looking for Linux testers

    SimAirport [Steam, Official Site] aims to be a modern tycoon-style game where you build and manage every aspect of an airport. It's coming to Linux and the developers are looking for some testers.

  • OpenMW 0.42 Released To Let Morrowind Live On

    For fans of OpenMW, the open-source re-implementation of the engine powering Elderscrolls III: Morrowind, a new feature release is now available.

    OpenMW 0.42 is the project's newest release. OpenMW 0.42 features support for water sound effects, implementing various particles / magic particles / other in-game visuals, more implementations of OpenMW-CS, and dozens of bugs have been fixed.

Canonical released today new kernel updates for all of its supported Ubuntu Linux releases, patching recently discovered security vulnerabilities, including the infamous BlueBorne that exposes billions of Bluetooth devices. The BlueBorne vulnerability (CVE-2017-1000251) appears to affect all supported Ubuntu versions, including Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus), Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) up to 16.04.3, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) up to 14.04.5, and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) up to 12.04.5.

Security: Updates, 2017 Linux Security Summit, Software Updates for Embedded Linux and More

  • Security updates for Tuesday
  • The 2017 Linux Security Summit
    The past Thursday and Friday was the 2017 Linux Security Summit, and once again I think it was a great success. A round of thanks to James Morris for leading the effort, the program committee for selecting a solid set of talks (we saw a big increase in submissions this year), the presenters, the attendees, the Linux Foundation, and our sponsor - thank you all! Unfortunately we don't have recordings of the talks, but I've included my notes on each of the presentations below. I've also included links to the slides, but not all of the slides were available at the time of writing; check the LSS 2017 slide archive for updates.
  • Key Considerations for Software Updates for Embedded Linux and IoT
    The Mirai botnet attack that enslaved poorly secured connected embedded devices is yet another tangible example of the importance of security before bringing your embedded devices online. A new strain of Mirai has caused network outages to about a million Deutsche Telekom customers due to poorly secured routers. Many of these embedded devices run a variant of embedded Linux; typically, the distribution size is around 16MB today. Unfortunately, the Linux kernel, although very widely used, is far from immune to critical security vulnerabilities as well. In fact, in a presentation at Linux Security Summit 2016, Kees Cook highlighted two examples of critical security vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel: one being present in kernel versions from 2.6.1 all the way to 3.15, the other from 3.4 to 3.14. He also showed that a myriad of high severity vulnerabilities are continuously being found and addressed—more than 30 in his data set.
