Fedora: End of Life (EOL), RPMs of PHP and Heroes of Fedora

  • Fedora 29 Officially Reached End of Life (EOL) on November 26th 2019

    Fedora 29 has officially reached End of Life (EOL) effective on November 26th 2019. Users are advised to upgrade the latest release of Fedora 30 or Fedora 31, which was released on October 29, 2019. It’s a good time to upgrade your system as this EOL version repositories won’t be get any updates from the Fedora community. I mean to say, no updates will be pushed to any of the Fedora 29 repositories going forward such as security, bugfix, or enhancement updates. Also, they won’t add anymore new packages to Fedora 29 repositories. It means, we shouldn’t run EOL operating system because we won’t be getting any benefits from the community. It’s very risk and leads to face some security related issues when we run the EOL operating system.

  • PHP version 7.2.26RC1 and 7.3.13RC1

    RPM of PHP version 7.3.13RC1 are available as SCL in remi-test repository and as base packages in the remi-test repository for Fedora 30-31 or remi-php73-test repository for Fedora 29 and Enterprise Linux. RPM of PHP version 7.2.26RC1 are available as SCL in remi-test repository and as base packages in the remi-test repository for Fedora 29 or remi-php72-test repository for Enterprise Linux.

  • Heroes of Fedora (HoF) – F31 Final

Security: Windows Ransomware and Malware, New Patches and More

  • Ransomware attacks on business, government pick up pace

    Ransomware attacks on businesses and governments will continue at a more rapid pace, thanks to newly found security vulnerabilities, according to one global security firm which forecasts further increases in ransomware attacks and VPN “scandals” in 2020 and beyond.

  • ThreatList: A Third of Biometric Systems Targeted by Malware in Q3 [iophk: Windows TCO]

    Kaspersky researchers found that in the third quarter, one in three (37 percent) of computers within the firm’s telemetry that collect, process and store biometric data were targeted by malware attacks. The malware in question included spyware and remote access trojans (RATs), which accounted for 5.4 percent of all computers analyzed; followed by malware used in phishing attacks (5.1 percent), ransomware (1.9 percent) and trojan bankers (1.5 percent).

  • Biometric data processing and storage system threats

    Thirdly (and most importantly), biometric data, once compromised, is compromised for good: users cannot change their stolen fingerprints the way they do stolen passwords. What’s more, biometric data may turn out to be compromised for all applications at the same time. An individual will therefore potentially be affected for the rest of his or her life.

    Given all of the issues above, it is remarkable how careless biometric authentication system developers and users are about protecting these systems and the biometric data collected by them against computer attacks.

  • Security updates for Thursday

    Security updates have been issued by Arch Linux (firefox), Fedora (cyrus-imapd, freeipa, haproxy, ImageMagick, python-pillow, rubygem-rmagick, sqlite, squid, and tnef), openSUSE (haproxy), Oracle (microcode_ctl), and Ubuntu (squid, squid3).

  • Aviatrix VPN vulnerability left user endpoints wide open

    Aviatrix, a supplier of open source enterprise virtual private networks (VPNs) to customers including BT, Nasa and Shell, has patched a serious vulnerability in its client that could have given an attacker escalation privileges on a machine to which they already had access. The vulnerability was uncovered by Immersive Labs researcher and content engineer Alex Seymour, after noticing that the VPN client was unusually verbose when booting on a Linux machine. Its disclosure comes hot on the heels of government warnings about the possibility of state-sponsored threat actors targeting high-profile organisations through VPN vulnerabilities in products from the likes of Pulse Secure, Palo Alto Networks and Fortinet.
