Linux Fedora 21 latest updates

Linux Fedora 21 What is in the new update of Linux Fedora 21? This is a good news for the user of the Linux operating system. But what is in the new Linux Fedora 21? Will this be a good update, or just like the old ones? Here’s a good read to check to find out more about the update in this OS. Video about Linux Fedora 21 Say hi to Linux’s future: Fedora 21 is here Summary: Red Hat’s latest community Linux distribution, Fedora 21, is here and it offers a glimpse at Linux’s future. If you want to see where enterprise Linux is going, you should look at Red Hat’s community Linux distribution, Fedora, today. It’s in Fedora that Red Hat explores the cutting edge of Linux and open source software developments. While not everyone will like where Fedora is going — for example, Fedora’s init system systemd still has many detractors — it’s still the bellwether for Linux. If a software library or program isn’t in Fedora at some point, it’s not likely to ever show up in mainstream Linux. The latest Fedora, which has been the case for the last few updates, arrived a bit late. Never the less, it works well. Instead of focusing on the desktop, as was once the case, Fedora now comes in three different variants: Fedora 21 Cloud, Fedora 21 Server, and Fedora 21 Workstation. Each is meant to meet a specific use case. However, they all share in a common base set of packages, which includes the brand new Linux 3.18.0 kernel, RPM, yum, systemd, and the Anaconda installer. According to Red Hat, “This small,...

Plug-ins are very useful in building a website, but unfortunately, there are already some that are considered as malicious software. Do you own a website? If so, consult a trained techinician or web developer to assist you regarding data and web security. Crawley Computer Centre is of service to you. Video of Malware as WordPress plug-in New Russian Malware Impacts 100,000 WordPress Sites Google blacklisted more than 10,000 domains compromised with a piece of malware dubbed SoakSoak, according to virus researchers. Up to 100,000 WordPress sites may be vulnerable to the malicious campaign, Sucuri said. Any version of WordPress that uses a popular slideshow plugin called “Slider Revolution” or RevSlider can fall victim to SoakSoak. In September, researchers discovered a zero-day vulnerability in the plugin that allows an attacker to download any file from the site’s server, including database credentials, and compromise the website via the database. The problem lies in the way the plugin is wrapped into theme packages. When it becomes part of a theme, RevSlider’s automatic update mechanism is usually disabled and manual updates need to be performed in a process prone to error.

HTTP Sites will be recognize as unsecure site by Google. Google Will Mark HTTP Sites As Unsafe Starting in 2015 Google plans to mark all HTTP pages “insecure” to warn users about data security and privacy issues, according to Chromium.org. As part of the open-source Chromium Projects, the initiative will affect Chrome starting in January. It’s meant to encourage all website owners to switch to HTTPS by default. “We all need data communication on the web to be secure (private, authenticated, untampered),” Google’s team said. “When there is no data security, the UA should explicitly display that, so users can make informed decisions about how to interact with an origin.” The Google team suggests browsers define three basic states of security: Secure (valid HTTPS) Dubious (valid HTTPS but with mixed passive resources, valid HTTPS with minor TLS errors) Non-secure (broken HTTPS or HTTP) Also, they recommend “a phased approach to marking non-secure origins as non-secure.” Read more here….
