We are planning at work to install Pfsense and a Nextcloud server as VM.
I am considering four options here. Debian with virt manager, Proxmox, XCP NG or OpenSUSE Leap with xen.
Note that all my colleagues are Windows system admins. GUI is a must.
I am leaning more to Debian with lxde and virt manager.
I am using the GTK and icon themes from Yaru colors and it looks great. Blue color is perfect for my Debian Gnome installation.
There are 12 colors to choose from.
Just a reminder that I'm working on an infosec/cybersecurity e-zine! Here's what you can expect from it!
This is still in the planning stages so I'd be extremely appreciative if you folk would boost and give feedback if you'd like to see this project succeed all the way to publication! :)
Enjoyed this discussion about Snaps and how it compares to Flatpak and Appimages by Destination Linux.
"Rock and heavy metal bands are banned to perform in Egypt cause they are "satanic".
So let's get Jennifer Lopez, pop genre is not satanic.
WTF IS SHE WEARING!"
Coming soon on infosec-handbook.eu: A new part of our web server security series, covering basic log file analysis for security purposes.
Our web server security series already covers basic planning, hardening, SSH/TLS configuration, security-relevant HTTP response headers, web application firewalls, DNS features, logging, and more.
Not sure about you guys...
But this is me when I have to get dressed up for an event.
Two days back I installed Ubuntu 18.04, used the ppa to install the latest Mesa release along with Vulkan since it is officially supported by Steam.
Started playing The Witcher 3 and the stuttering was unbearable. It was not consistent but when it hits the game freezes for around 5 seconds, even during cut scenes. I am guessing it is the shader pre caching.
Today morning I decided to reinstall Debian Buster and try The Witcher 3. Not the latest Mesa but the game is so much smoother.
Good deed for the weekend:
Just released mastotool v0.1, a (growing) collection of tools to access the Mastodon API from the terminal.
Generates lovely statistics for your account and lets you search your toots for keywords, so far.
Get it here:
(On Arch you can simply install package 'mastotool')
Is there a Firefox addon that can pop out videos from all sites like Opera? I have seen some addons with limited websites support.
In just over 4 weeks Korn will release their new album The Nothing.
Cold, track from the new album, is so good. Nice mixture of heavy, funk and melody. One of my favorite tracks released by them so far.
Thank you @federicomena for reminding people how to disclose security vulnerabilities (especially in FOSS projects) in a way that is beneficial for everyone.
We need people who check open source code for security vulnerabilities, because bugs only become shallow if enough eyeballs actually turn to them.
But we also need those people to report them in a way that does not do harm.
