Are you still removing your files containing sensitive information (ssh keys, account password, auth file, etc) using the standard way? Then you are making it easier for third-party applications to recover.

Chromebooks have become the Swiss Army Knife of computing

Linux News - Wed, 06/22/2022 - 22:20
11 years. 11 short years since the Chromebook was first released to the public. (ChromeOS was introduced in 2009 but the first consumer Chromebook actually launched in May of 2011.) In just over a decade, ChromeOS has evolved into a massive ecosystem the like so of which, not even Sundar himself could have predicted. You may have heard someone say “a Chromebook is nothing more than a browser” and once upon a time, that would have been fairly accurate. Problem is, that synopsis has stuck around entirely too long and has created a stigma around ChromeOS that prevents many from even giving a Chromebook a chance.

RISC OS: 35-year-old original Arm operating system is alive and well

Linux News - Wed, 06/22/2022 - 22:20
RISC OS, the operating system of the original Arm computer, the Acorn Archimedes, is still very much alive – and doing relatively well for its age. In June 1987, Acorn launched the Archimedes A305 and A310, starting at £800 ($982) and running a new operating system called Arthur. At the time, it was a radical and very fast computer. In his review [PDF] for Personal Computer World, Dick Pountain memorably said: "It loads huge programs with a faint burping noise, in the time it takes to blink an eye."

For a few days earlier this year, rogue GitHub apps could have hijacked countless repos

Linux News - Wed, 06/22/2022 - 22:20
A GitHub bug could have been exploited earlier this year by connected third-party apps to hijack victims' source-code repositories. For almost a week in late February and early March, rogue applications could have generated scoped installation tokens with elevated permissions, allowing them to gain otherwise unauthorized write or administrative access to developers' repos. For example, if an app was granted read-only access to an organization or individual's code repo, the app could effortlessly escalate that to read-write access.
