Since I have a ZFS server, running on solaris, this is the only option for that box.
Backups are not archives. And backups need to be checked regularly. To prevent bit rot, you put in checksums. Most tape backups do that.
Main reason why I use ZFS's zraid-3. Prevents bit rot. Only if 4 of the 7 drives die will I be in trouble. When I need to archive - snapshot.
I know of one hardware vendor that does give a shit. However, too many haters here to mention that name.
A patch is different from a OS level upgrade. One is just updating *ONE* component. The other is an entire OS update.
If you can't understand why one would be easier than the other, then maybe slashdot isn't the right site for you.
As for Debian 6.0 - https://www.debian.org/News/20...
I think you're missing something. No one is saying back port the entire _CURRENT_ version of chrome back. What people are saying is weak sauce is not going back to the 4.3 (or whatever) shipping version and fixing the problem over there and releasing that.
If that were the only change, it makes it easier for the manufacturers and carriers to push the updates out, as they don't have to revalidate everything.
No. They have not fixed it. They are refusing to provide a patch.
No, going to a new version of Android is not a patch.
Why wouldn't you blame Google for this? Google explicitly said they are not updating the code. Since the carriers depend on Google to provide the code, how are they not culpable?
And the "oh, 5 million lines of code, I don't know where to look" is damned weak sauce. Debian back ports security patches all the time.
How stereotypically Slashdot of you to presume that you discovered a trivially exploited "obvious flaw" in a system that somehow the engineers who designed the system weren't able to perceive or address.
Did I miss something, or isn't the article itself saying that the idiots who designed the system did not perceive nor address the issue?
That most people don't give a damn about security "because it is hard"?
You don't know how to set preferences?
Any documentation on that "come from"? I've been googling a little and can't find anything on it.
systemd "come from" configuration
and similar doesn't give me anything.
Uh, apt-get install gimp brings in systemd, even if you don't have it installed.. Go on, try it.
Pfft. You must be a newbie and forgot Emacs does everything! Since systemd is well on the way to doing everything...
aww, fuck, slashdot eating linefeeds?!
