BSD vs. Linux flamewar trigger
Well, I just posted this paper to the and I fully expect a flamewar of gargantuan proportions to develop.
I am posting it here because it is actually a study on reliability, one of the very few which are around, and it is worth taking notice of:
J. Ruohonen and K. Rindell, "Empirical Notes on the Interaction Between Continuous Kernel Fuzzing and Development”
If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.
Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.
Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.
A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.
Malicious Python libraries stealing OpenPGP and SSH keys:
– Look for python3-dateutil, and jeIlyfish.
– Both modules try to exfiltrate SSH/OpenPGP keys and send them to an IP address.
– This is the third time the PyPI team intervenes to remove typo-squatted malicious Python libraries from the official repository.

More evidence of the soaring wealth inequality in America. The wealthiest 1 percent of Americans nows own nearly as much wealth as the entire middle class, according to new Federal Reserve data. Others estimates put their share even higher. The wealthy and corporations have never had it so good, pocketing trillions from Trump's tax cuts and deregulation.
Folks, wealth inequality is even more dangerous than income inequality. Over time, wealth parked in investments will continue to grow even further – without wealthy folks lifting a finger. This concentration of wealth will soon resemble the kind of dynasties common to European aristocracies in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It threatens to undermine our economy and democracy.
