  • Firefox Add-on Reviews: How to use a temp mail extension for spam and security protection

    One of the most common methods malicious hackers use to break into their victims’ computer systems is tricking them into clicking dangerous links within an email. It’s been popular with cyber criminals for decades because it’s so simple yet consistently effective. Just make the email appear like it’s from a trusted source and include a compelling link that, once clicked, is like opening the front door of your home to a thief.

    Temp mail (i.e. temporary email) is a tremendous way to combat this classic cyber scam. Temp mail creates disposable email accounts for you to use for non-personal/business situations, like registering with websites or online services when you don’t want them knowing your actual email, because the more your actual email is in circulation the greater its chances of falling into the hands of malicious actors.

    Beyond security protection, temp mail is also great for filtering spam. Consider how many daily emails you receive from different social media sites, services, etc.—trying to pull you back into their orbit. Certainly your inbox has seen better days?

Mozilla Thunderbird: Thunderbird 91 Available Now

  • Mozilla Thunderbird: Thunderbird 91 Available Now

    The newest stable release of Thunderbird, version 91, is available for download on our website now. Existing Thunderbird users will be updated to the newest version in the coming weeks.

    Thunderbird 91 is our biggest release in years with a ton of new features, bug fixes and polish across the app. This past year had its challenges for the Thunderbird team, our community and our users. But in the midst of a global pandemic, the important role that email plays in our lives became even more obvious. Our team was blown away by the support we received in terms of donations and open source contributions and we extend a big thanks to everyone who helped out Thunderbird in the lead up to this release.

    There are a ton of changes in the new Thunderbird, you can see them all in the release notes. In this post we’ll focus on the most notable and visible ones.

Thunderbird swaps 'master' for 'primary' password

  • Thunderbird 91 lands: Now native on Apple Silicon, swaps 'master' for 'primary' password, and more

    Thunderbird 91 has been released with support for Apple Silicon and other enhancements.

    This version entered the release channel yesterday, according to the release notes, and follows the emission of Firefox 91. You can fetch Thunderbird directly from here, or wait for your system package manager to catch up and hand it out.

    Mozilla's Thunderbird is a cross-platform, open-source email client. Its future looked uncertain in 2015 when Moz CEO Mitchell Baker said "sooner or later paying a tax to support Thunderbird will not make sense as a policy for Mozilla." Early last year, though, matters improved, with the formation of a wholly-owned subsidiary, MZLA Technologies Corporation, to manage the project.

  • 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.
