Tesora and Mirantis have partnered to certify the interoperability of their respective OpenStack open source cloud computing distributions and tools. OpenStack companies Tesora and Mirantis cemented their partnership recently with the announcement that Tesora's Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) platform for the open source cloud operating system is now certified for use with Mirantis's OpenStack distribution.
It’s been quite a while since I last looked at Linux Lite, the last version I reviewed being 1.0.6. Much has changed in Linux Lite since that release and now it’s reached version 2.2. If you aren’t familiar with it, you should know that Linux Lite is a distribution geared toward helping current Windows users transition to the Linux desktop.
More than 12 million devices running an embedded webserver called RomPager are vulnerable to a simple attack that could give a hacker man-in-the-middle position on traffic going to and from home routers from just about every leading manufacturer.

There was a time when Yahoo strode across the Internet landscape like a giant. Users and media alike waited with bated breath to find out what Yahoo’s next move would be and many of us actually depended on Yahoo to find information on the Internet. But those days are long, long gone and now Yahoo is a pale echo of its former glory.
We have had quite a year of open science at Opensource.com in 2014! I couldn't hope to cover every article we published over the year, but I will highlight some of my favorites. The tide is turning in science. More funding is going to open science projects, more publications are making their data available to everyone (especially other researchers), and all of this is hopefully beginning to impact hiring decisions.read more
A new development cycle has been started for the Linux kernel, 3.19, but it looks like the 3.20 branch is about to receive a very interesting patch that should really shake things up if it's going to get accepted, that is.

Erle Robotics has launched the “Erie-brain,” claimed to be the first open source drone to run both a Pixhawk APM autopilot and ROS directly on Linux. Over the last year, Spanish firm Erle Robotics S.L. has been working with 3DRobotics to develop an open source BeaglePilot autopilot for drones that can run Linux on 3DR’s […]
Secure Shell (SSH) is a network protocol that enables remote login or remote command execution between two hosts over a cryptographically secure communication channel. SSH was designed to replace insecure clear-text protocols such as telnet, rsh or rlogin. SSH provides a number of desirable features such as authentication, encryption, data integrity, authorization, and forwarding/tunneling.
Remote code execution vulnerabilities in the standard implementation of the network time protocol (NTP) can be exploited by attackers to compromise servers, embedded devices and even critical infrastructure systems that run UNIX-like operating systems.
I’ve made clear in the past that I’m not a fan of Facebook, for a number of reasons. The company was recently in the news when founder Mark Zuckerberg was asked why Facebook didn’t have a dislike button. Zuckerberg’s response was a nice bit obfuscation.
