  1. In Europe, the information technology of every state administration and its institutions – military, police, fiscal authorities etc. – is based on Microsoft programs. This exposes us to a high technical and political security risk. Is our digital sovereignty at stake? Microsoft is generally considered the dinosaur of the digital age, lagging behind data giants Google, Facebook and Amazon. However, the US corporation is more powerful today than ever before. The power of its monopoly is nowhere more apparent than in Europe: from Finland to Portugal, from Ireland to Greece, the information technology of every state administration and its institutions – military, police, fiscal authorities etc. – is based on Microsoft programs. But since digital systems are constantly expanding and increasing in importance, countries are becoming more and more dependent on this single company; and increasingly vulnerable to the weak points inherent in Microsoft. The worldwide “WannaCry” cyberattack, for example, occurred as a result of security vulnerability at Microsoft. This dependence causes continually rising costs – around €50 billion in licensing fees every year – and prevents technical progress in state authorities. It systematically undermines European procurement and competition laws, and leads inevitably to the company having an overwhelming political influence. It also exposes state IT systems, along with citizens’ data, to a high technical and political security risk. Is Europe’s digital sovereignty at stake?

    Zorin OS 12.3 Released – A Stronger, More Versatile System We’re excited to announce the release of Zorin OS 12.3. This version focuses on strenghtening the fundamentals of the operating system that contribute towards Zorin OS’s unique user experience: simplicity, security, and functionality. Improved Windows App Support with Wine 3.0 The latest version of the Wine compatibility layer for Windows apps has been built into Zorin OS 12.3. This means more Windows apps run faster and with better reliability than ever before. Amongst a myriad of other upgrades, the Wine developers have focused on improving how Windows games run thanks to the introduction of Direct3D 10 & 11 support. That means you’ll have access to an even larger library of games to play in Zorin OS. Trackmania Nations in Zorin OS 12.3 Zorin Desktop For this release, we’ve paid close attention to your feedback to improve how the desktop works. These enhancements help make the Zorin OS desktop easier and more intuitive for both newcomers and advanced users. The following are only a few of the feature and stability improvements introduced to the desktop in this release: File & Folder Management You can now select custom colors for different folders and attach emblems to files. This makes it quicker to organise your files & folders by topics and view the status of your documents, all at a glance. Printer Jobs Viewing active printer jobs is now easier than ever. When printing documents, a new indicator automatically appears in the panel listing details of the print jobs, with the ability to cancel them quickly. Window List Launchers and Previews When using the Window List layout in Zorin OS 12.3 you will now be able to pin and launch apps directly from the panel. Hovering the cursor over open windows in the panel will open a window preview popover, which can transform into a full-size preview after mousing over the popover. http://zorinos.com/releases/12/images/Window-List.webm The Latest Software Out of the Box After installing Zorin OS 12.3, you will have the latest versions of the pre-installed apps and packages.

  5. 2016 was the year of ransomware – 146 new strains of this destructive malware were discovered, which earned cybercriminals an estimated worldwide profit of around one billion dollars in 2016. By contrast, in 2015 only 29 strains of ransomware were discovered. Until recently, Windows users were the primary target for ransomware attacks, but now hackers are also targeting Mac and Linux users too. More recently, smartphones or tablets with an Android or iOS operating system are also becoming targets. The reason for this is simple: the proportion of Apple and Linux-based computers is increasing, and who doesn’t have a smartphone these days?! Traditionally, you would have felt quite safe as a Mac or Linux user; Windows users have always been plagued with a high risk of catching viruses, worms or Trojans, whereas Apple or UNIX systems (including smartphones) have enjoyed a low threat level when it comes to malware. But has that now all changed? Mac is still more secure than Windows Mac users are currently still far less vulnerable than Windows users, as the spread of ransomware on the Mac so far requires a manual involvement of the user. However, it will certainly come to a point where attackers find a more efficient way of disseminating their malware, by which time macOS could be just as vulnerable as Windows. Although the malware ‘Patcher’ was recently discovered as an application for cracking popular software, the program is quite bumpy. In fact, the code for communicating with the host server to pay the ransom is often missed out, which means you are left high and dry with all your data encrypted and no hope of getting it back by paying the ransom (although in every case it is advisable not to pay the ransom anyway). A more dangerous strain is ‘KeRanger’, which attacked about 7,000 Macs in 2016, even hitting time-machine backups. A quick intervention by Apple prevented the spread from getting any worse, but when one malware program is successful you can bet that there will be more right behind it. It is therefore important that your backups should be stored on a storage medium that is not connected to the internet or the network. That way you can still access your data if something goes wrong with your main computer (this is good practice anyway, but it especially true when it comes to overcoming ransomware attacks). Cybercriminals are also interested in Linux machines Ransomware is currently not much of a problem for Linux systems. A pest discovered by security researchers is a Linux variant of the Windows malware ‘KillDisk’. However, this malware has been noted as being very specific; attacking high profile financial institutions and also critical infrastructure in Ukraine. Another problem here is that the decryption key that is generated by the program to unlock the data is not stored anywhere, which means that any encrypted data cannot be unlocked, whether the ransom is paid or not. Data can still sometimes be recovered by experts like Ontrack, however timescales, difficulty and success rates depend on the exact situation and strain of ransomware. The Linux pedant to KeRanger is called ‘Linux.Encoder’. This malicious program originally came from an open source ransomware project and is relatively easy to comprehend because of its half-baked programming. As a result, the chance of getting lost data back is high, for now. Again, the industry will need to deal with improved versions in the future, but at least for now the situation is still pretty relaxed. Smartphones are the top target Almost everyone today has a smartphone, and on it often resides a variety of private and business data, which is a prime target for hackers to hold hostage. However, the infection with the malware does not happen automatically; the user of the phone must actively participate and independently, for example, by installing a contaminated app on a device. However, in these cases not everything is still not lost – putting a smartphone into ‘safe mode’ can help to uninstall rogue apps, or some specialist software tools can remove it for you. As a last resort you can even reset the phone to factory settings, which will ‘delete’ all data stored on the device. Although the manufacturer of the smartphone operating system Android (Google) reacts quite well to known malware problems, it still may take some time for the device manufacturers to incorporate the updates into their own brand-specific operating systems and then deliver them to their customers. Apple vs. Android Apple users rejoice – iPhones are better off. Previous reports about surfaced ransomware were not completely correct, and in most cases they were just pseudo-ransomware attacks or simple error message spam. The reason for the much better performance compared to Android phones is on the one hand that Apple does not work with open source software and on the other hand that Apple reacts very quickly to possible problem areas and provides its customers with updates – without having to take the long route via external companies. However, even with Apple smartphones it is always possible that this could change in the future, leaving data at risk. Therefore, it is recommended (as with all computers and devices that stored data) to create frequent backups. If you’re lucky and have backed up properly then getting your data back might be as simple as wiping your device completely, initiating a fresh install and then restoring your data from the backups. If your backups did not work and your find your data being attacked and encrypted by ransomware, you should contact a data recovery service provider like Ontrack immediately. Remember not try out any DIY data recovery methods you might find on the Internet, as it can often make the situation worse. It’s much safer to shut down your affected device and contact a professional to understand exactly what your options are and the likely chances of a successful recovery being possible. Have you ever been hit by ransomware? What happened and were you able to get your data back? Source
  6. People who like to test out distributions in VirtualBox or who want to run applications in an isolated virtual machine received good news this week. VirtualBox guest drivers are being added to the Linux kernel.

  13. Self-hosted crowdfunder out grosses combined funding of Purism’s previous three campaigns SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., October 9, 2017 — Purism, the social purpose corporation which designs and produces popular privacy conscious hardware and software, has reached its $1.5 million crowdfunding goal to create the world’s first encrypted, open smartphone ecosystem that gives users complete device control, the Librem 5. After amassing incredible support from GNU/Linux enthusiasts and the Free/Open-Source community at large, forging partnerships with KDE and the GNOME Foundation in the process, Purism plans to use the remaining two weeks of the campaign to push for its stretch goals and start working on the next steps for bringing the phone to market. Reaching the $1.5 million milestone weeks ahead of schedule enables Purism to accelerate the production of the physical product. The company plans to move into hardware production as soon as possible to assemble a developer kit as well as initiate building the base software platform, which will be publicly available and open to the developer community. Breaking away from the iOS/Android OS duopoly, the Librem 5’s isolation-based security-focused PureOS will offer basic communication services: phone, email, messaging, voice, camera, browsing, and will expand after shipment and over time to update with more free software applications, through shared collaboration with the developer community (not “read-only open source”, but true free software collaboration). In addition to the ability to integrate with both GNOME and Plasma Mobile, the $599 Librem 5 will come equipped with hardware kill switches, a popular feature in Purism’s laptops, that allow for users to turn on and off the camera, microphone, WiFi and Bluetooth at will. The impressive milestone has already generated celebration in the community: About Purism Purism is a Social Purpose Corporation devoted to bringing security, privacy, software freedom, and digital independence to everyone’s personal computing experience. With operations based in San Francisco (California) and around the world, Purism manufactures premium-quality laptops, tablets and phones, creating beautiful and powerful devices meant to protect users’ digital lives without requiring a compromise on ease of use. Purism designs and assembles its hardware in the United States, carefully selecting internationally sourced components to be privacy-respecting and fully Free-Software-compliant. Security and privacy-centric features come built-in with every product Purism makes, making security and privacy the simpler, logical choice for individuals and businesses.

  14. The first step towards an all-Snap Ubuntu OS Ubuntu MATE leader Martin Wimpress is pioneering pre-installed Snap support in his Ubuntu distro by shipping the forthcoming Ubuntu MATE 17.10 release as the first distro with a Snap app installed by default. The Snap app in question is for the pulsemixer curses-based command-line sound mixer for the popular PulseAudio sound server, which is installed by default in Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) and other opt-in flavors, such as Ubuntu MATE. Pulsemixer will only be available as a Snap package in Ubuntu MATE 17.10, as the first step towards an all-Snap Ubuntu system. "Pre-installing Snaps by default in the desktop images was an outcome of the Ubuntu Rally that took place in New York a couple of weeks ago," said Martin Wimpress. "Installing the pulsemixer Snap by default in Ubuntu MATE 17.10 is being used a pilot and what we learn will help the Ubuntu Desktop team with their efforts to ship Snaps by default in Ubuntu 18.04." Call for testing for Ubuntu MATE 17.10 with pre-installed Snap According to Martin Wimpress, the size of the Ubuntu MATE 17.10 ISO images hasn't been affected significantly due to the installation of the pulsemixer Snap by the default, which was selected because of its smaller size and usefulness for Ubuntu MATE users, but also because it's not available for installation from the official Ubuntu repositories, nor the Debian ones. A call for testing has been put out if you want to help the Ubuntu MATE developers test the upcoming release with the pulsemixer Snap installed by default. To do that, you need to download the latest Ubuntu MATE 17.10 daily builds for either 64-bit or 32-bit computers, write the ISO image to a USB flash drive, boot it in live mode or install it on your PC, and test the pulsemixer Snap. Ubuntu MATE 17.10 will launch next week on October 19 with the latest MATE 1.18 desktop environment by default, the Linux 4.13 kernel, and numerous other new features and improvements, especially to the in-house build apps like MATE Tweak. Ubuntu MATE 17.10 won't be dropping support for 32-bit installations, yet it will inherit many of the features of Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark). Source

  16. Skype officially releases their preview for Linux computers Last month, the Skype team quietly released its preview desktop app on Linux. This is the same app that is also available in preview on Windows and macOS, but until now it wasn’t available as an update for the previous Skype for Linux beta app, which is based on Skype for web. Starting today, Skype Preview is now officially available on Linux, and you can install it from the Skype Insider page. The preview app brings a redesigned UI with a black theme option, screen sharing support, the new message reactions and more. Skype Preview supports screen sharing on Linux. “The next generation of Skype for Linux is part of our broader strategy to rebuild Skype from the ground up with cloud technology—a more reliable platform that can scale to a much bigger audience,” explained the Skype team. “We’re making great improvements in the ways you like to connect with people and bringing your world closer together than ever before.” The Skype Preview app is still a work in progress, but Microsoft is iterating faster than before with an app that is now truly cross-platform. The Skype team is still listening to user feedback, and you can share you ideas by clicking the heart button on the menu or by visiting the Skype for Linux online community.
  17. Mozilla will release Firefox 56.0 to the Stable channel on September 29th, 2017. The new Firefox version will be made available to all users of the Stable channel. The new version of the browser can best be described as a minor release in anticipation of the biggest Firefox release in history: Firefox 57. All Firefox channels are or have been updated to a new release version. Firefox Stable to version 56, Firefox Beta and Developer to version 57, and Firefox Nightly to version 58. The Firefox ESR update brings the version to 52.4. Executive Summary Firefox 56 is the last Stable version of Firefox that supports legacy add-ons. Firefox 57 Stable will support only WebExtensions. Firefox on Android ends support for devices running Android 4.0. Firefox for Android does not support Flash anymore. The Firefox Page Shot tool is available universally now. Firefox 56.0 download and update Existing Firefox users who have automatic updates enabled in the browser -- which is the default setting -- will be updated automatically to Firefox 56.0 once Mozilla publishes it. Firefox does not check for updates in real-time though; you can run a manual check for updates by selecting Menu > Help > About Firefox. Firefox displays the current version in a new window, and runs an update check to find out if a new version is available. This new version will be downloaded and installed automatically by default if that is the case. Direct download links for Firefox installation files: Firefox Stable download Firefox Beta download Nightly download Firefox ESR download Firefox unbranded builds information Firefox 56.0 Changes Firefox Screenshots Firefox's built-in Page Shot tool is available to all users of the browser now. The tool lets you capture part of a web page or all of it, and save it locally or online for easy sharing. Check out our overview of Firefox Screenshots here. It explains how the tool works, and how you can disable it in case you don't need it. Firefox preferences changes Firefox 56.0 ships with a redesigned preferences interface that introduces new features and changes to it. You can load about:preferences to open the starting page of the Firefox options, or click on Menu and select Options from it to do the same. One major change is the integration of a search field that you may use to find preferences quickly. Type cookies for instance, and you get all cookies related preferences displayed to you so that you may interact with them directly. The preferences display four entry points instead of the larger number of pages in Firefox 56.0. You may load them using the following addresses: General: about:preferences#general Search: about:preferences#search Privacy & Security: about:preferences#privacy Firefox account: about:preferences#sync We talked about the change back in early 2017 when it rolled out to Nightly versions. Basically, what the redesign means is that you do less clicking but more scrolling to go through all of the preferences. Mozilla notes that it has updated descriptions to make it clearer how settings affect browsing. Other Firefox 56.0 changes Firefox won't auto-play media anymore that is opened in a background tab. Hardware acceleration support for AES-GCM (most widely used cipher according to Mozilla). Performance improvements on all desktop systems. Safe Browsing protocol updated to version 4. Security improvements for verifying file downloads. Updates are roughly 20% smaller in size when they are downloaded via Firefox's built-in updating system. New Rust character encoding standard-compliant implementation. Form Autofill rollout to En-US. Firefox 56.0 Issues Firefox may crash on startup if RelevantKnowledge adware is installed on the device. Remove it by running software such as AdwCleaner, Malwarebytes Free, or other security software. 64-bit versions of Firefox may crash on Windows 7 if Lenovo's "OneKey Theater" software is installed. Mozilla suggests to re-install a 32-bit version of Firefox to fix the issue. Developer Changes rel="preload" implemented to preload resources that can be cached. (bug 1222633) Intl API enabled on Android (bug 1344625) Firefox for Android does not support plugins anymore. (bug 1381916) URLs are encoded internally by Gecko using punycode to avoid encoding issues. (bug 945240) Firefox on Windows and on Mac OS X can be run in headless mode using the -headless flag. (bug 1355150 and bug 1355147) Lots of WebExtensions changes (see developer link in the resource section below for a full list). Support for <applet> has been dropped. Firefox 56.0 for Android Only a handful of changes in Firefox for Android, but they are major: Flash support is discontinued. Firefox for Android does not support Android 4.0 anymore. Performance and power consumption improvements for WebRTC through the use of hardware encoders. Support for WebExtensions improved. Security updates / fixes Security changes are announced after the official release. We will update the review when Mozilla publishes them.

  21. GNOME 3.26 will be the default desktop environment Work on the upcoming Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) operating system continues, and Canonical's Will Cooke is back with more information on the Ubuntu Desktop team bakes for the final release, which will land on October 19, 2017. Last week, we told you that Ubuntu 17.10 will support all known driverless printing standards and that captive portal detection is now enabled by default. Also, Ubuntu 17.10 received initial support for PolicyKit authentication in the Snapd Snappy daemon, to finally allow users to install and remove Snaps from the Snappy Store without having to create an Ubuntu One account. And now, it looks like Ubuntu Dock is getting support for indicators and notification badges. This is great news for those using apps that support libappindicators, as the soon-to-be-released GNOME 3.26 desktop environment won't ship with support for indicators. On top of that, enabling notification badge support in Ubuntu Dock is a must for ex-Unity users. "We’re adding notification badge support to the Dock extension. This branch has been proposed to the upstream project and is awaiting review," reveals Will Cooke, Ubuntu Desktop Director, Canonical. "We’ve packaged the KStatusNotifier extension to provide support for indicators. This will provide support for apps which use libappindicators which was removed from GNOME 3.26." Wayland session won't work on PCs with non-hybrid Nvidia GPUs As you are aware, Ubuntu 17.10 will be using the next-generation Wayland display server by default instead of X11 (X.Org Server), which is available as an alternative from the GNOME Display Manager (GDM). But, Will Cooke warns users that the Wayland session won't work on PCs with non-hybrid Nvidia GPUs, unless they enable the experimental KMS support, which will break X11. As such, people with this kind of systems won't see the X11 session to not end up with a broken Ubuntu installation if they feel adventurous to enable Kernel Mode Setting (KMS) for the Wayland session. Meanwhile, the Ubuntu Desktop team still works to improve the video playback performance in Ubuntu 17.10 to reduce CPU usage, and hardware-accelerated video support on Intel GPUs. Other than that, the Ubuntu Desktop team worked to sync the mobile broadband provider info from Debian Sid. On the other hand, it looks like the Ubuntu Kernel team still works on rebasing Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) on the recently released Linux 4.13 kernel. The Final Beta is expected later this month, on September 28, and it will give us a glimpse of what's coming to Ubuntu Linux this fall. Source
  22. Ubuntu 17.10 Final Beta is expected on September 28, 2017 Canonical is still working on polishing its upcoming Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) operating system, due for release next month on October 19, and today we'd like to offer you a first look at the new control center that'll be implemented in this release. You probably already know that Ubuntu 17.10 will be the first release of the popular OS in years to ship with the GNOME desktop environment by default, though Canonical's engineers are working day and night to customize the default Ubuntu session to make it easier for Unity users the next time they upgrade their PCs. Therefore, Ubuntu 17.10's default GNOME session won't be a vanilla one, like that of the Fedora Linux operating system, but one that tries to resemble the look and feel of the deprecated Unity user interface, which was used by default since Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) and was based on the GNOME Stack. A GNOME vanilla session will be available for installation as well, if you don't like what Canonical did to the GNOME desktop environment, but you probably won't have any trouble using the default one. We already showed you the new Ubuntu Dock, and today we're giving you a first look at the new control center. Here's what Ubuntu 17.10 Control Center looks like As of yesterday, those using Ubuntu 17.10 daily builds on their computers have probably noticed that there's a completely revamped control center when they clicked on the wheel icon in the system menu in the system tray area. And it's nothing like the old Ubuntu Control Center used in previous releases. The new Ubuntu Control Center is a slightly revamped version of the GNOME Control Center of the forthcoming GNOME 3.26 desktop environment launching tomorrow, September 13, 2017, and it features an all-new navigation system with all sections listed on the left side of the window at a glance. While most of the settings sections offer single pages, there are a couple of sections that opens another list of sections, such as Devices and Details, which feature multiple entries. The settings of the new Ubuntu Dock are also available in the new Ubuntu Control Center, which comes with built-in search functionality. Check out the screenshot tour below to see the new Ubuntu Control Center in action, and you can download the latest daily build ISO image of Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) if you want to take it for a test drive. We think that it's cool, modern, and very handy, and it was about time to get a face lift. More Images[22] Source
  23. The new release also adds dynamic filesystem updates Canonical announced the release of Snapd 2.27 Snappy daemon for Ubuntu Linux and other supported GNU/Linux distributions. This is a major release that adds significant improvements and new features. The biggest new feature implemented in the Snapd 2.27 release is Android boot support, which should bring the Ubuntu Snappy technologies to a wide range of devices that are powered by Google's Linux-based Android mobile operating system, implementing support for transactional updates. "The snapd boot sequence can now handle Android-style boot management. We’re especially happy about this as it opens up a new range of devices for snapd that will support transactional updates of the OS and the kernel with automatic reverts on boot failures," said Gustavo Niemeyer. Another interesting feature introduces in the Snapd 2.27 release is the snap-update-ns tool, which has been in development for a very long time. The tool promises to allow for changes to be performed dynamically in the file system inside the Snap mount namespace, which wasn't possible until now. Additionally, Snapd 2.27 comes with new "install" and "remove" hooks that let Snaps to implement a logic that's enabled only when it's removed from the system or installed for the first time, and adds support for the snapctl tool, which opens up a communication line between any Snap and the Snapd daemon. New and updated interfaces, new aliases and commands Among other improvements implemented in Snapd 2.27, we can mention a new "title" field designed to hold a high-level, normally uppercased name for the Snap app, new "--unaliased" parameter to the "snap install" command for installing Snaps that don't have any aliases enabled, and new "--last=" parameter to the "snap abort" and "watch" commands, allowing them to operate on the last change. The seccomp argument filtering was re-enabled in this release of Snapd, which renames the "snap change" command to "snap tasks," adds new "search" alias for the "snap find" command, adds support for displaying snap types under the Notes column via the "snap list" command, as well as suppor for the "snap info" command to display more information. Lastly, Snapd 2.27 introduces the broadcom-asic-control, greengrass-support, and password-manager-service interfaces, and updates numerous others, including alsa, browser-support, log-observe, mir, mount-observe, network-control, optical-drive, optical-observe, pulseaudio, screen-inhibit-control, system-observe, timezone-control, unity7, and x11.
