    How this class of vulnerabilities will impact millions connected devices and potentially wreck the day of IT security professionals.

  • Linux Foundation sigstore finds ‘origins’ in software supply chains [Ed: Companies connected to the Pentagon trying to centralise "trust" and over time control what people can and cannot install and run on their own GNU/Linux systems]

    The Linux Foundation announced the sigstore project this spring.

    Designed to improves the security of the software supply chain, sigstore is said to enable the adoption of cryptographic software signing backed by transparency log technologies.

    Software application development professionals will be able to securely sign software artifacts such as release files, container images and binaries.

    Signing materials are then stored in a tamper-proof public log.

    The service will be free to use for all developers and software providers, with the sigstore code and operation tooling developed by the sigstore community.

  • NSA uncovers new "critical" flaws in Microsoft Exchange Server [Ed: It sort of misses the point that there are NSA back doors in everything from Microsoft]

    Microsoft released three new patches for its Exchange Server software on Tuesday after the National Security Agency (NSA) alerted the company to a fresh batch of critical vulnerabilities.

    The new fixes are for three versions of Exchange Server - 2013, 2016 and 2019 - and the flaws are said to be different vulnerabilities to the ones disclosed in March. However, US agencies continue to find and remove vulnerabilities in their systems a month after the previous flaws were first discovered.

  • Not even the best antivirus could have shielded you from this Linux and macOS malware [Ed: Misinformation. It neglects to say that Microsoft delivers this malware. Instead it blames the recipients of Microsoft (NPM)]

    Researchers have identified a new strain of Linux and macOS malware capable of eluding even the most reputable antivirus services.

    According to security company Sonatype, the malicious program was discovered on the npm registry, a developer resource that catalogues various open source JavaScript packages.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
