The future of NGINX

수, 2022/08/24 - 10:59오후
This blog post on the NGINX corporate site describes the plans for this web server project in the coming year.

For the core NGINX Open Source software, we continue to add new features and functionality and to support more operating system platforms. Two critical capabilities for security and scalability of web applications and traffic, HTTP3 and QUIC, are coming in the next version we ship.


Security updates for Wednesday

수, 2022/08/24 - 10:11오후
Security updates have been issued by Fedora (vim), SUSE (cosign, dpdk, freeciv, gfbgraph, kernel, nim, p11-kit, perl-HTTP-Daemon, python-lxml, and python-treq), and Ubuntu (linux-oem-5.14, open-vm-tools, and twisted).

Firefox 104 released

수, 2022/08/24 - 6:22오전
Version 104 of the Firefox browser has been released. The most interesting new feature, perhaps, is the ability to analyze a web site's power usage — but that feature is not available on Linux.

[$] The container orchestrator landscape

수, 2022/08/24 - 1:39오전
Docker and other container engines can greatly simplify many aspects of deploying a server-side application, but numerous applications consist of more than one container. Managing a group of containers only gets harder as additional applications and services are deployed; this has led to the development of a class of tools called container orchestrators. The best-known of these by far is Kubernetes; the history of container orchestration can be divided into what came before it and what came after.

Security updates for Tuesday

화, 2022/08/23 - 10:14오후
Security updates have been issued by Oracle (kernel and kernel-container), SUSE (bluez, gimp, rubygem-rails-html-sanitizer, systemd-presets-common-SUSE, and u-boot), and Ubuntu (libxslt).

EFF: Code, Speech, and the Tornado Cash Mixer

화, 2022/08/23 - 12:47오후
The Electronic Frontier Foundation has announced that it is representing cryptography professor Matthew Green, who has chosen to republish the sanctioned Tornado Cash open-source code as a GitHub repository. EFF’s most central concern about OFAC’s [US Office of Foreign Assets Control] actions arose because, after the SDN [Specially Designated Nationals] listing of “Tornado Cash,” GitHub took down the canonical repository of the Tornado Cash source code, along with the accounts of the primary developers, including all their code contributions. While GitHub has its own right to decide what goes on its platform, the disappearance of this source code from GitHub after the government action raised the specter of government action chilling the publication of this code.

In keeping with our longstanding defense of the right to publish code, we are representing Professor Matthew Green, who teaches computer science at the Johns Hopkins Information Security Institute, including applied cryptography and anonymous cryptocurrencies. Part of his work involves studying and improving privacy-enhancing technologies, and teaching his students about mixers like Tornado Cash. The disappearance of Tornado Cash’s repository from GitHub created a gap in the available information on mixer technology, so Professor Green made a fork of the code, and posted the replica so it would be available for study. The First Amendment protects both GitHub’s right to host that code, and Professor Green’s right to publish (here republish) it on GitHub so he and others can use it for teaching, for further study, and for development of the technology.

[$] LRU-list manipulation with DAMON

화, 2022/08/23 - 12:09오전
The DAMON subsystem, which entered the kernel during the 5.15 release cycle, uses various heuristics to determine which pages of memory are in active use. Since the beginning, the intent has been to use this information to influence memory management. The 6.0 kernel contains another step in this direction, giving DAMON the ability to actively reorder pages on the kernel's least-recently-used (LRU) lists.

Security updates for Monday

Security updates have been issued by Debian (jetty9 and kicad), Fedora (community-mysql and trafficserver), Gentoo (chromium, gettext, tomcat, and vim), Mageia (apache-mod_wsgi, libitrpc, libxml2, teeworlds, wavpack, and webkit2), Red Hat (podman), Slackware (vim), SUSE (java-1_8_0-openjdk, nodejs10, open-iscsi, rsync, and trivy), and Ubuntu (exim4).

Kernel prepatch 6.0-rc2

월, 2022/08/22 - 9:58오전
The second 6.0 kernel prepatch is out for testing. "The most noticeable fix in here is likely the virtio reverts that fixed the problem people had with running tests on the google cloud VMs, which was the 'pending issue' that we had noticed just as the merge window was closing".
