Are you confused by new .xyz / .guru .anything domains?"

+ - The Carder Who Loved Me (aka how to entrap a Credit Card Criminal)->

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "Credit card theft is the bane of the modern world and credit card thieves — known as Carders — are growing in number. Big retail breaches are giving these carders lots of numbers to play with, but thankfully law enforcement is up to the task of tracking down the carders. In a session at the SecTor security conference in Toronto, Grayson Lenik, recounted a story of how a good looking undercover female agent convinced a card to come to Las Vegas to marry her. It didn't end well for the carder — or his friends."

+ - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6's Big New Feature is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 ->

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "Red Hat is out today with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6 (RHEL), providing its users with a long list of incremental updates. While many of those updates are new to RHEL 6, they are not new to RHEL 7, the newer version of Red Hat's flagship enterprise Linux product. High-availability, security and peformance features from RHEL 7 now land in RHEL 6.6. Going a step further, Red Hat is now providing a RHEL 6 Docker Image, so RHEL 7 users can run RHEL 6 applications on RHEL 7 without any changes.

As to why RHEL 6 applications cannot just simply run natively on RHEL 7, Bhavna Sarathy, technology product manager in the Platform Business Unit at Red Hat explained explained that applications that were built and certified to run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 have to be rebuilt and re-certified to run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, as the software stack between the two major releases is vastly different.

+ - Xen Cloud Fix Shows the Right Way To Patch Open-Source Flaws-> 1

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "Amazon, Rackspace and IBM have all patched their public clouds over the last several days due to a vulnerability in the Xen hypervisor. According to a new report, the Xen project was first advised of the issue two weeks ago, but instead of the knee jerk type reactions we've seen with Heartbleed and now Shellshock, the Xen project privately fixed the bug and waited until all the major Xen deployment were patched before any details were released. Isn't this the way that all open-source projects should fix security issues?"

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "Marten Mickos is not yet officially part of HP and it's OpenStack cloud (yet) but he will be soon. On Sept 11 Mickos' company Eucalyptus announced that it was being acquired by HP, though the deal has not yet officially closed. That's not stopping Mickos from making bold predictions about OpenStack — an effort that he has been a competitor against for most of the last four years. Speaking at the OpenStack Silicon Valley event Mickos laid out his plan

"For the last one and a half decades, I have been trying to reach full victory for open source," Mickos said.

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "Docker has become the new hotness in virtualization technology — but it is still a project that is led by the backing of a single vendor — Docker Inc. Is that a problem? Should there be an open-source Foundation to manage the governance and operation of the Docker project? In a video interview — Docker founder and Benevolent Dictator for Life Solomon Hykes says — No."

+ - Millions of IPv4 Addresses Reclaimed - IPv4 is not dead ! (yet).->

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "Back in 2011, IANA said it had allocated its last /8 block of freely available IPv4 address space. As it turns out, here we are in 2014 and IANA has now reclaimed several million IPv4 addresses that it is now giving to regional internet registries. While that means that unallocated IPv4 space is still available, don't get your hopes up that it's limitless, ARIN only has just over one million IPv4 addresses left for the Americas."

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "Forget about HTML5, that's already passe — Google is already moving on to HTML5.1 support for the upcoming Chrome 38 release. Currently only a beta, one of the biggest things that web developers will notice is the use of the new "picture" tag which is a container for multiple image sizes/formats. Bottom line is it's a new way to think about the "IMG" tag that has existed since the first HTML spec."

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "Since November of 2001, Brian Stevens has been the CTO of Red Hat but as of August 28 that's no longer the case. Under Stevens' tenure, Red Hat transformed its business, adding Red Hat Enterprise Linux, acquiring JBoss, Qumranet, Gluster and Ceph as well as joining (and now leading) the OpenStack Foundation. So why did he leave? No official word, but apparently it is to purse a new opportunity that Stevens just could not pass up."

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "Linux is everywhere or is it? At the LinuxCon conference in Chicago today Linus Torvalds was asked where Linux should go next. Torvalds didn't hesitate with his reply.

"I still want the desktop," Torvalds said as the audience erupted into boisterous applause.

Torvalds doesn't see the desktop as being a kernel problem at this point either, but rather one about infrastructure. While not ready to declare a 'Year of the Linux Desktop' he does expect that to happen — one day."

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "Nearly 4 years after RHEL 6, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 finally hit general availability today. A lot has happened in the last four years and one of the biggest new innovations in RHEL 7 is a technology that didn't exist when development first began. Docker containers are now a fully supported part of RHEL 7.

"RHEL has had to become a lot more flexible because of things like containers and Docker," Denise Dumas, senior director of Platform Engineering at Red Hat said.-
