Ubuntu Spyware: What to Do?  View Printable Version 
Friday, December 07 2012 @ 10:31 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsOne of the major advantages of free software is that the community protects users from malicious software. Now Ubuntu GNU/Linux has become a counterexample. What should we do?

Proprietary software is associated with malicious treatment of the user: surveillance code, digital handcuffs (DRM or Digital Restrictions Management) to restrict users, and back doors that can do nasty things under remote control. Programs that do any of these things are malware and should be treated as such.

The Document Foundation Announces LibreOffice 3.6.3  View Printable Version 
Friday, November 02 2012 @ 06:16 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsBerlin, November 1, 2012 – The Document Foundation (TDF) announces LibreOffice 3.6.3, for Windows, MacOS and Linux. This new release is another step forward in the process of improving the overall quality and stability for any kind of deployment, on personal desktops or inside organizations and companies of any size.

LibreOffice has quickly become the de facto standard for migrations to free office suites, thanks to the growing feature set and the improved interoperability with proprietary software. Instrumental for the overall progress is the growing developer base, which has just reached the number of 550 since the launch of the project, making LibreOffice one of the fastest growing free software projects of the decade.

Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsThere’s a new GNU/Linux distro designed to help you in every aspect of your mobile forensics, mobile malware analysis, reverse engineering and security testing. It’s called Santoku Linux. Santoku is a general purpose kitchen knife which originated from Japan, meaning “three virtues” or “three uses”. This distribution is not from Japan, but the name was suggested by Thomas Cannon of viaForensics (who happens to be the project leader of Santoku Linux) because the distribution was crafted specifically for Mobile Forensics, Mobile Malware Analysis, and Mobile Security Testing.

Saturday, June 16 2012 @ 07:16 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsIn my last post I talked about wanting to hook Python to the Qt port for the PlayBook. Since then, after considering other approaches, I decided to take a closer look at PySide [2]. My quick review of it concluded that I'd be duplicating key parts of its functionality if I tried doing anything from scratch.
