Not cool #Apple. Another closed silo ignoring open standards. And why we need #NetNewsWire and other #RSS readers for news. “Apple News Drops Support for RSS.” https://news.slashdot.org/story/19/12/27/2122211/apple-news-no-longer-supports-rss
First chosen-prefix collision for SHA-1:
– The researchers demonstrated an impersonation attack on OpenPGP.
– GnuPG 2.2.18 (released in November 2019) and newer includes a fix (CVE-2019-14855).
– CAcert still uses SHA-1.
– OpenSSL considers disabling SHA-1. Some Linux distributions already configured it more securely.
If Microsoft really "loves" Linux, like its PR team shouts (at least in the US, but not elsewhere), why don't they make Linux better (rather than "how Linux integrates with proprietary Windows technologies")?
The answer is simple: they don't want people adopting Linux. They want them stuck on Windows.
Microsoft "loves" Linux the way a tapeworm loves a healthy gut.
#introductions Hello. I'm a researcher/technologist with a focus on biomedical informatics. Main focus is creating novel software tools to help clinicians and researchers do their research. I also like trying out new software tech, with an interest in privacy focussed tools.
Outside academia most of my time is spent looking after my young son, but when I get a chance I also like listening to, playing and writing music.
Looking forward to contributing!
