The death of Mandriva, a social media botnet running on consumer routers, Solaris, alternative firmware for consumer routers, and some games that run on
GNU/Linux (plus the fun goodness of two high-profile compromises). This is the first episode Jthan tried his hand at editing. I ended up fixing a fair bit. :P Notes
So Mandriva is
staffing, Jthan. Not quality/type of product or going bankrupt. But there are three forks you can check out…
You may want to read more about Mandriva (
the company and the product). Jthan brings up
Gitolite, which we’ll definitely cover in another episode.
And the documentation he references is
here And I mentioned
WinAmp Information on Moose, the “router worm”, can be found
here and here
You may also want to keep tabs on
RouterSecurity’s bug list The list of companies’ products affected are: Actiontec, Hik Vision, Netgear, Synology, TP-Link, ZyXEL, and Zhone
Thankfully, Solaris/OpenSolaris is dead (and has been for a while)
At least they gave us
ZFS I mention
Illumos, the maintained fork of (Open?)Solaris. Jthan mentions Solaris’
And I mention FreeBSD’s
Jails He also mentions
FMA, Fault Management Architecture
Tomato firmware is based on the Linksys source code and the developer makes it available, but from what I understand the actual license is under a freeware level. I also mentioned the
TOTALLY proprietary DD- WRT But I love
I also mention
Tektonic and Linode
I also throw down a mention for
games.square-r00t.net/, which is still a work in progress.
But check out the game listings, as I mention all the games I reference in there
Jthan mentions his horrible taste in games
I replaced the speakers in my laptop. Still making the static. :(

OPM compromise has raised some serious questions
Solaris’ initial public release was in June of 1992 (23 years ago). OpenSolaris’ initial public release was May 5, 2008.
I forgot to mention it, but on the majority of my
VPSes I run Nginx
nickermire in our points out that: IRC 22:11:38 < nickermire> fyi r00t^2 lastpass doesn't force you to change your password after the breach. They just mention it once upon login the first time after the hack.
LastPass, you secure bad and you should feel bad.
