Okay, time for a good ol’ FUD actually related to freetards and FOSS.

Yes I know, this is not what TMR is for nowadays, but still, it’s too good to let it go unmentioned.

PS: I particularly liked the “I will talk with Moore about this, off the list, to find out more about the situation” tidbit. In case you don’t speak Stallman-ize, it basically translates to “the cabal will discuss this, under the presidency of the Dear Leader, and all you subjects will be notified about the decision afterwards”

Nice to know that Google has appointed itself the Supreme Moral Arbiter of the Security Universe.

The story so far: Issue 118 covers a privilege escalation (or maybe simply a UAC bypass; it’s hard to tell) violation in Windows 8 and 8.1 which can be exploited if you have local (including RDP, I would think) access to a desktop. Google’s Project Zero researchers found it, notified Microsoft, waited ninety days, got no response …

and published it, complete with a Proof of Concept.

This is extraordinary behaviour, if you ask me, particularly since they seem to be claiming ...

Yes, it’s boycottsystemd. And I still have no idea why the site was taken down. Just for once, it’s intra-Linux FUD, so here goes with an example of a Bash script for bringing up, say, Sybase, just to start the discussion:

 # 
 # This sh script starts the SYBASE server on this machine. 
 # The name of the server is in the file .server_name 
 #  in sybase's home directory. 
 # 
SYBASE=/usr1/sybase 
 SYB_INST="$SYBASE/install" 
if [ ! -f $SYBASE/.server_name ] 
 then 
    echo "S100sybase: .server_name file missing" 
    exit 1 
 fi 
DSQUERY=`cat $SYBASE/.server_name` 
if [ ! -f $SYB_INST/startserver ] 
 then 
    echo "S100sybase: startserver script ...

I put a bit of effort into chasing down the astonishingly high number of CVEs attributed to X in a single day (10th Dec 2014), as quoted by Michael Larabel, so I thought I’d share the links for those of us who enjoy torturing small defenceless Linux dweebs:

1) CVE-2014-8091 : malloc attack. Affects: *nix.
2) CVE-2014-8092 : Multiple integer overflows. Affects: *nix.
3) CVE-2014-8093 : Integer overflows in GLX extension. Affects: *nix.
4) CVE-2014-8094 : Integer overflow in DRI2 extension. Affects: *nix.
5) CVE-2014-8095 : XInput extension, buffer overrun. Affects: *nix.
6) CVE-2014-8096 : XCMisc extension, buffer overrun. Affects: *nix.
7) CVE-2014-8097 : DBE extension ...

Yes, it’s our old friend pulseaudio. And our even older friend Jack Wallen.

Jack Wallen, Loon Extraordinaire, apparently makes a significant amount of his income out of audio books. (Now is not the time to ask WHAT SORT OF BLITHERING IDIOT WOULD PAY GOOD MONEY FOR THOSE?)

Apparently, the Linux Audio Stack, which these days is practically burned in as pulseaudio ... so much for “choice” ... is a serious threat to this part of Jack’s livelihood.

And I have gone through a long list of troubleshooting steps:
  • Replaced motherboard
  • Ran memtest86
  • Replaced hard drive
  • Tested CPU
  • Installed three flavors ...

As I mentioned, there are presently two known forks of OpenSSL. And what with a fork being the traditional way for *nix developers to fuck themselves up, I thought it was worth a look at the slightly more rational one.[1]

I’m going to elide the silly hex numbers and also elide the submitter of the update, just for yucks.

Fix garbage free on malloc failure in ec_wNAF_mul.

Remove support for processing fragmented alerts

Don’t resume sessions if the negotiated version doesn’t match

Fix ec_test build on Windows.

runner: Refuse to resume sessions on mismatching versions.

Remove ...

This is an important guidebook to check for parents. If we can catch freetardism early, it is much easier to cure.

It’s true. Loonix is made by hacker scum. No wonder Loonix is so easy to hack. This horrible fact is suppressed by the freetards.

The love of Linux is so strong that even former enemies can not resist. Main competitor Microsoft is using more Linux systems in their infrastructure then ever. Microsoft is also a top sponsor of Linux kernel development.

Linux is the most advanced operating system in the world. Built on freedom, trusted by everyone. Including Microsoft!
