There is a vulnerability in the Plasma desktop that KDE developers are currently working to patch. The details are here.


For the moment avoid downloading .desktop or .directory files and extracting archives from untrusted sources.

Also, if you discover a similar vulnerability, it is best to send an email security@kde.org before making it public. This will give us time to patch it and keep users safe before the bad guys try to exploit it.

@susanthesquark: Did you know that companies use the Bluetooth capabilities on your phone to track your movements in retail stores, gyms, airports, and more? I didn't.

Turning Bluetooth off doesn't stop them.

Yay, as of now, github.com/ursjoss/scipamato builds with gradle. Bye bye maven, you served but may rest now...

Property based testing for kotlin. Concise and nice little library: github.com/jcornaz/kwik

Liebe Medienkolleginnen und - kollegen, die BBC aus Großbritannien hat drei einfache Regeln zur Berichterstattung über den Klimawandel. Ich finde, denen könnten sich auch unsere Medien in Deutschland anschließen. Retweet, falls ihr zustimmt. Thread 👇

Ich habe als verpeilter Schüler mal Patrick Süskind angerufen und ihn für ein Referat gefragt, was er sich so gedacht hat, als er "Das Parfum" geschrieben hat. Die Antwort fiel, nun ja, gradlinig aus. @sz@twitter.com #MeinglamourösesLeben

@AlexSteffen: Just your occasional reminder that a baby born today is likely to live to see 2100.

In 2017, planning for 2100 is not hubris, it's common intergenerational decency.
