The open-source OpenSSL project has released an updated version of its software, 1.1.1k, to fix two vulnerabilities, the severity of both of which has been described as "high".
The release of version 2.0.0 by the OpenZFS project has some crowing as though some revolutionary new software, which will bring benefits to world+dog, has landed.
The head of the OpenBSD project, Theo de Raadt, has warned that more flaws related to speculative execution in Intel CPUs are likely to be found and that the two vulnerabilities found by Intel, as a result of examining the Foreshadow bug — found by two independent teams — are cause for much worry.
Recompiling is unlikely to be a catch-all solution for a recently unveiled Intel CPU vulnerability known as TLBleed, the details of which were leaked on Friday, the head of the OpenBSD project Theo de Raadt says.
The OpenBSD project, which produces an UNIX-like operating system of the same name, has decided to disable support for hyperthreading for Intel processors as it could lead to data leaks in a manner similar to that caused by the Spectre flaws in Intel processors announced earlier this year.
Processor giant Intel has told some of its customers that the microcode patches it issued to fix the Meltdown and Spectre flaws in its products are buggy and that they should not install them.
Disclosure of the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, which affect mainly Intel CPUs, was handled "in an incredibly bad way" by both Intel and Google, the leader of the OpenBSD project Theo de Raadt claims.
Cloud security provider Qualys has released details of a vulnerability related to memory management in most *NIX-like operating systems.
The OpenSSL project is seeking to go ahead with a change of licence to the Apache Licence Version 2.0 but the way it is doing so appears to have riled up some contributors.
The worst thing about a distributed denial of service attack is not the attack itself. Rather, it is the slew of bottom-feeders who appear on the horizon after the deed and try to profit from the misery of others.
The FreeBSD project has announced the availability of version 11.0, the first release of the stable/11 branch.
The OpenBSD project has marked two decades since commits were first made to the source tree with the release of version 5.8 - and four songs to mark the release, three inspired by the Beatles.
Microsoft has made a contribution of between US$25,000 and US$50,000 to the OpenBSD Foundation which supports OpenBSD and related projects such as OpenSSH, OpenBGPD, OpenNTPD, OpenSMTPD, LibreSSL, and mandoc.
The security company NETSEC was "probably contracted to write backdoors as alleged," the founder of the OpenBSD project, Theo de Raadt, said in a message posted to the openbsd-tech mailing list on Tuesday.
The OpenBSD project has found two bugs during an audit of the cryptographic code in which, it has been alleged, the FBI, through former developers, was able to plant backdoors.
Two developers named as having played a role in creating backdoors for the FBI in the open cryptographic framework used in OpenBSD have denied they did so.
