Void Linux – the Strangely Overlooked Distribution by https://is.gd/PAo8bG

Ahh, Void Linux. You may or may not have heard of it. If you have, more than likely it was by word of mouth, so to speak, from internet comments on a forum, YouTube video or in passing on Reddit. But this little distro rarely gets any press or recognition otherwise.

Perhaps it’s time that changes, as Void Linux is an interesting distro in its own right and a good alternative to something like Arch Linux. It also has a no-systemd approach.

Just three years ago, in 2014, I wrote a little short story set in a future where most work is organized around blockchains. That story was set sometime past the 2120s, but it appears we’ll get there a century earlier than I thought.

The idea of organizing work through smart contracts on blockchains has been moving ahead at a breathtaking pace.

That Nasty Samba Vulnerability Is Now Patched in All Supported Ubuntu Releases by https://is.gd/suMzeI

that-nasty-samba-vulnerability-is-now-patched-in-all-supported-ubuntu-releases

You might have read the news this morning about a wormable code-execution bug discovered in the Samba free software re-implementation of the SMB/CIFS networking protocol, which existed in Samba for more than 7 years.

The Samba team managed to quickly patch the critical vulnerability that was discovered to affect over a hundred thousand Linux and UNIX machines running Samba, which is usually used to provide file and printing sharing services, allowing users to connect to Windows shares on a network.

The Samba 4.6.4, 4.5.10 and 4.4.14 patched versions have been released, and are available for download from the official website or via ours if you want to compile it on your GNU/Linux distribution. Canonical already patched Samba in all supported Ubuntu releases, and other GNU/Linux distributions will soon receive the patch.
