I really hope is watching the situation closely and will come to the right conclusion. Locking down a project to implement more effective monetization does not grow your business. Mark Shuttleworth's promise was exactly on the right path, and i wish it would make a comeback in 's marketing. programmerthoughts.wordpress.c

There's a quite clever new appimaged code execution exploit.
Short summary:
* Attacker crafts file that is both valid AppImage and valid MP3
* appimaged user downloads MP3 file
* appimaged scans the ~/Downloads folder automatically for appimages and extracts the desktop file from the malicious AppImage/MP3 file
* Missing name sanitization allows one to overwrite arbitrary desktop files of other applications
=> payload execution when user starts overwritten desktop file

One of the weird things I do is curating the "Glitch Gallery", which collects accidental artworks, produced by broken or buggy programs! <3

I'm especially amazed by @ManuelaXibanya@twitter.com's submission today – she accidentally applied a text material to a tree! glitchgallery.org/a-poem-as-lo

"Die Gesellschaft für Informatik fürchtet, dass Baden-Württemberg mit dem Office-Paket von Microsoft seine digitale Souveränität im Bildungssystem verliert."

Dem schließe ich mich an.

Frontex is complicit in illegal Greek refugee pushback operations: "breaking the law has become an everyday occurrence at Europe’s borders, and the EU is allowing it to happen".

Youtube-dl is a legitimate tool with a world of a lawful uses. Demanding its removal from Github is a disappointing and counterproductive move by the RIAA. github.com/github/dmca/blob/ma

youtube-dl was taken down by RIAA via DMCA. You know, the one that was archived here:

I'm happy to announce a project I've been working on for a while now:

, the open crowdsourced user testing suite


OPEN-CUTS is a web-tool to help communities with user testing! The goal is to allow even inexperienced users to easily report test results for new software releases. OPEN-CUTS then aggregates and compares the metadata across versions to identify regressions.

Die API von NINA liegt unter warnung.bund.de Die IP-Adresse davon gehört der SOPRADO GmbH (soprado.com).
Sowas sollte wirklich nicht bei einer privaten Firma liegen

It's like GitHub's reading my mind here.
