  1. What is new in Fedora 22? Here are some of the interesting updates that come with the new version of Fedora – Better notifications – Fedora 22 comes with GNOME 3.16. Because of this elegant desktop environment, notifications from various applications appear on the center of the top bar of your desktop. Moreover, longer background jobs notify when they are done. Improved themes – With the updated version of GNOME, themes in the new release are very much improved. Navigation among the files and folders, window size and placement have become more easy with the new release. Application upgrades – The software app of Fedora 22 has more and better data which will help you find useful free softwares easily. Updated layout in the file manager gives a better view of files and folders. Built-in Docker support – Fedora 22 also provides native Docker support, it includes updated Docker images that you can use as the base of your containerized application. Now containerize your own apps, or deploy containerized apps out of the box on Fedora becomes very easy. Built-in Vagrant Boxes support – Using included virtualization technology, no need to install third-party virtualization (like VirtualBox). You can use this feature to work on top of any Cloud images, or launch your own Vagrant boxes. Jump over to to download — or for current users, run the upgrade tool.
  2. The Debian project has announced the release of Debian GNU/Linux 8.0, code name "Jessie". The new stable version is the first Debian release to use systemd as the default init software. It offers support for two new architectures, arm64 and ppc64el, while dropping support for the IA-64 and Sparc architectures. Debian Jessie ships with GNOME Shell 3.14 as the default desktop environment and a number of code hardening features have been added to the build process. "After almost 24 months of constant development the Debian project is proud to present its new stable version 8 (code name 'Jessie'), which will be supported for the next 5 years." Jessie can be downloaded in several editions, including a full DVD set, a CD image, a set of live DVD images with popular desktop environments, and a minimal "net-install" image. See the release announcement and release notes for more information.

  3. Canonical has announced the launch of Ubuntu 15.04. The new release, which will be supported for nine months, features LibreOffice 4.4, version 3.19 of the Linux kernel and a switch from Canonical's Upstart init to systemd. "systemd has replaced Upstart as the standard boot and service manager on all Ubuntu flavors except Touch. At the time of the 15.04 release there are no known major problems which prevent booting. The only service which does not currently start is Juju, which will be fixed in a post-release update soon; all other packaged Ubuntu services are expected to work. Upstart continues to control user sessions... You can boot with Upstart once by selecting `Advanced options for Ubuntu' in the GRUB boot menu and starting the `Ubuntu, with Linux ... (upstart)' entry. To switch back permanently, install the upstart-sysv package (this will remove systemd-sysv and ubuntu-standard)." The new release offers several updates and improvements for LXC containers and this is the first version of Ubuntu to offer the LXD container management utility. Ubuntu is available in a number of editions, including Desktop, Server and Snappy, a minimal "core" installation. More details on Ubuntu 15.04 can be found in the release notes. Ubuntu Flavors News: Kubuntu 15.04 ships with the shiny new Plasma 5.2 desktop environment by default, a change that helps give the release a renewed identity. But this next-gen KDE desktop is more than just fancy visuals. Refactoring under-the-hood have made it more agile, adaptable and performance, something the recent release of Plasma 5.3 Beta shows. The release also ships with KDE Applications 14.12.2 and includes new versions of staple apps like Konsole and Gwenview based on KDE Frameworks 5. Xubuntu 15.04 is based on the latest XFCE 4.12 release, which brings a stack of optimisations, bug fixes and minor new features, such as a new panel plugin to display battery and device charge levels. The color scheme in the Terminal app has been tweaked, the look of Qt applications improved and a tool for configuring the log-in screen added. Updated versions of the spin’s default application set feature, and there are plenty of Xubuntu specific bug fixes and stability improvements to be had, too. Lubuntu 15.04 marks another highly minor bug fix release for the lightweight LXDE-based distro. While welcome one does feel it sees releases more out of obligation than necessity. On offer are updated versions of core system components, apps and artwork. Ubuntu MATE 15.04 based on the MATE desktop environment version 1.8.2 and adds support for PowerPC systems, the RaspberryPi 2, ‘Client Side Decorations’ and the Compiz window manager. Drop-down terminal application Tilda comes pre-installed as of this release, as do VLC (replacing Totem) and versatile webcam app Guvcview (replacing Cheese). Ubuntu MATE 15.04 also throws in the LightDM GTK Greeter Settings tool and utilities for ‘switching’ desktop layouts and tweaking folders colors. Ubuntu Gnome 15.04. Although not using the latest version of the GNOME software stack Ubuntu GNOME 15.04 finally ships with a consistent GNOME experience, made up of last year’s GNOME 3.14 release. Two new apps are installed as a result: Maps and Weather. A new GNOME Classic session is available to select from the login screen, while the newly-bundled Numix theme helps add some visual bling. . Ubuntu Studio 15.04. The new release ships with the Xfce 4.12 desktop environment and a new meta package which draws in all required dependencies for a multimedia workstation. "Another short term release is out. Not much is new, but some of the most obvious changes are: New meta package: ubuntustudio-audio-core (includes all the core stuff for an audio oriented installation); Xfce 4.12.

  4. elementary is proud to announce the stable release of elementary OS Freya. After a year and a half of development, over a thousand bugfixes, and countless lines of code, we can finally say it’s here. Freya is the latest version of elementary OS, a design-oriented and open source Linux-based operating system for desktops and laptops. It succeeds Luna which was released in August of 2013. The previous release of elementary OS was downloaded over 3 million times, is one of the top 10 most popular open source operating systems, and had over 60% of downloads come from non-free OSes. elementary isn’t just eating up existing open-source market share, the open-source market is being grown by it. And Freya continues this push. “Freya’s design is much more purpose driven and focused,†said Daniel Foré, founder and lead designer of elementary. “We spent a lot of time taking advantage of new toolkit features like Header Bar, improved CSS support, and animations. There’s a much greater level of fluidity when you navigate or reveal a new part of the interface. Freya also shakes off some of the trends of the early 2010s like high gloss and embraces a more matte look while preserving and enhancing our use of light and shadow. †This new release (codenamed Freya) comes packed with over 1,100 fixes, improvements, and new features including: A more discoverable, redesigned, and app-focused multitasking view New interactive and dismissible notifications, plus a notifications settings pane including a system-wide “Do Not Disturb†mode A refined look and feel that includes a refreshed system-wide stylesheet, refreshed icons, space-saving Header Bars, a dark stylesheet for apps, rounded corners on menus and dialogs, improved animations, many new and refined “symbolic†icons, intelligent transparency for the panel, and more. Better emoji support & drop-in replacements for Microsoft Core fonts for the web A new firewall tool and “privacy mode†Much improved Applications menu including support for “quicklist†actions, drag-and-drop from search, and support for quick math calculations An updated software stack including Linux 3.16, Gtk 3.14, and Vala 0.26 UEFI support A new captive portal assistant to make connecting to public WiFi easier Redesigned Displays, User Accounts, Applications, and Date & Time settings Unified login and lock screens “With Luna, much of our work was building the first version of our desktop environment Pantheon,†said Cassidy James Blaede, UX designer at elementary. “With Freya we were able to dial in on the details like super-subtly rounded corners on the display and the new animations for maximizing. Both are small yet make the whole experience more polished. We were also able to focus much more effort on the included apps, delivering new features for existing apps and new apps alike.†Freya’s apps have new features and fixes including (but not limited to): Search in Files and Terminal Natural Copy & Paste, Smart tab labels, and a warning when pasting commands containing “sudo†in Terminal. A redesigned Photos New Calculator, Camera, and Videos apps Online calendar support (Google and CalDAV) Improved Samba support Download elementaryos-freya-amd64.20150411.iso (852MB, MD5). elementary OS Luna users should back up their data and perform a clean install. Branded t-shirts and stickers are available for purchase from the elementary web store. If you’re interested in getting involved with the creation of elementary OS, you can visit
  5. Clement Lefebvre has announced the launch of Linux Mint "Debian Edition", version 2. The new release, code named "Betsy", is available in two variants (Cinnamon and MATE) and is based on packages provided by Debian "Jessie". There are separate release announcements for Linux Mint Debian Edition 2 Cinnamon edition and for the MATE edition. Both announcements discuss the features of the new release and how it differs from Linux Mint's other products: "LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) is a very exciting distribution, targeted at experienced users, which provides the same environment as Linux Mint but uses Debian as its package base, instead of Ubuntu. LMDE is less mainstream than Linux Mint, it has a much smaller user base, it is not compatible with PPAs, and it lacks a few features. That makes it a bit harder to use and harder to find help for, so it is not recommended for novice users. LMDE is however slightly faster than Linux Mint and it runs newer packages. Life on the LMDE side can be exciting. There are no point releases in LMDE 2, except for bug fixes and security fixes base packages stay the same, but Mint and desktop components are updated continuously." More information and workarounds for known problems can be found in the release notes. Downloads: lmde-2-201503-cinnamon-64bit.iso (1,499MB, MD5, torrent, pkglist) lmde-2-201503-mate-64bit.iso (1,501MB, MD5, torrent, pkglist)
  6. The GNOME project has released GNOME 3.16, the latest version of GNOME 3. The new version is the result of six months work, and includes 33,525 changes by 1043 authors. Speaking on behalf of the Release Team, Javier Jardón said: “It’s great to see the fantastic results of our hard work, and it goes without saying that this could not be possible without all the effort from great the GNOME community! I definitely think this is the best GNOME release yet.† GNOME 3.16 brings a brand new notification system and updated calendar design, which helps you to easily keep track of what’s happened, and includes useful information like world times and event reminders. Other features include overlaid scrollbars, updated visuals, improved content views in Files, and a redesigned image viewer. Major additions have also been made to the GNOME developer experience: GTK+ support for OpenGL now allows GTK+ apps to support 3D natively, a new GLib reference counting feature will help with debugging, and GTK+ Inspector has also had a major update. The release notes contain more details on these new features, as well as the many other improvements in the new release. If that’s not enough, a live image is available, so you can try it yourself. Additionally, more information can be found in the 3.16 press release.
  7. The Chakra team is happy to announce the third release of the Chakra Euler series. This is a maintenance release to fix some installation issues and provide all the updated packages that landed in the stable repositories since the previous release. The main new feature is that our ISO now supports booting and installing on UEFI systems! Please follow the instructions carefully on how to achieve this. We are aware that everybody is looking ahead into Plasma5 and we are working on the transition, but we believe it is too early for this to be shipped by default and decided to wait for a little bit longer until Plasma 5 has furthered matured and more KDE Applications have switched to Frameworks 5. This ISO ships with the following notable packages and updates: KDE Software: Chakra provides the Applications 14.12.2, except for the applications that have been ported to frameworks 5, which will remain on their 4.14.3 versions. kde-workspace 4.11.16 and kdelibs 4.14.5 Frameworks 5.7 Calligra 2.9.0 Core Packages: kernel 3.18.3 xorg-server 1.16.4 systemd 218 qt5 group 5.4.1 Tribe: Gained support for UEFI installations. Drivers: xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.1 xf86-video-ati 7.5.0 xf86-video-intel 2.99.916 mesa 10.3.5 nvidia 346.35 (also nvidia 340.65, 304.125) catalyst 14.12 The extra repository, which is disabled by default, provides the must-have GTK-based applications and their dependencies. Kapudan, our desktop greeter which runs after the first boot, will allow you to enable it. Please have in mind that our installer, Tribe, does not currently officially support RAID, LVM and GPT, although you might find some workarounds in our forums. There are also limitations in detecting hybrid cards, so on some systems you might experience a black screen when rebooting after the installation. To workaround this one can install using the free drivers and then switch manually to the proprietary ones. To create reliable installation media, please follow the instructions on the wiki. Chakra ISO images do not support unetbootin and DVDs need to be burned at a speed no higher than 4×. Download (MD5/Torrent) chakra-2015.03-euler-x86_64.iso (1,809MB, pkglist)
  8. The latest version of the light Xfce desktop and related software continues to use GTK2+ but adds plenty of new features, usability improvements and bug fixes to make it feel fresh. Chief among the new features in Xfce 4.12 is initial support for Client Side Decorations (like those found in apps like Geary), a new Alt+Tab window switcher with window previews, a panel that can intelligently hide, support GTK3 applets and more. Other notable changes include better support for HiDPI displays thanks to a new Xfwm theme, better support for multiple monitor setups, including per-desktop wallpapers, and better support for window tiling mode thanks to new features like zoom mode. You’ll also find more tweaks and additions in the Thunar File Manager, which gains tabbed browsing, better loading times, keyboard shortcuts, and so on. Xfce 4.12 tour For a full rundown of all the new features do check out the comprehensive releases notes and screenshot tour over on the Xfce website. Install Xfce 4.12 in Ubuntu using a PPA Although probably not recommended just yet (early doors and all that) the Xubuntu Development PPA contains pre-release builds of Xfce 4.12 for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and 14.10 users to install from at their own risk. Add the Xubuntu Dev PPA to Ubuntu’s Software Sources using a Terminal and the following commands (assuming the Xfce desktop is already installed): sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.12 sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade To remove the PPA and downgrade to the version of PPA in the main Ubuntu repos/other installed PPAs the ‘ppa-purge’ utility should be installed and used: sudo apt-get install ppa-purge sudo ppa-purge ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.12
  9. Tails, The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 1.3, is out. Tails is a live system that aims to preserve your privacy and anonymity. It helps you to use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship almost anywhere you go and on any computer but leaving no trace unless you ask it to explicitly. It is a complete operating system designed to be used from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card independently of the computer's original operating system. It is Free Software and based on Debian GNU/Linux. Tails comes with several built-in applications pre-configured with security in mind: web browser, instant messaging client, email client, office suite, image and sound editor, etc. This release fixes numerous security issues and all users must upgrade as soon as possible. New features Electrum is an easy to use bitcoin wallet. You can use the Bitcoin Client persistence feature to store your Electrum configuration and wallet. The Tor Browser has additional operating system and data security. This security restricts reads and writes to a limited number of folders. Learn how to manipulate files with the new Tor Browser. The obfs4 pluggable transport is now available to connect to Tor bridges. Pluggable transports transform the Tor traffic between the client and the bridge to help disguise Tor traffic from censors. Keyringer lets you manage and share secrets using OpenPGP and Git from the command line. Upgrades and changes The Mac and Linux manual installation processes no longer require the isohybrid command. Removing the isohybrid command simplifies the installation. The tap-to-click and two-finger scrolling trackpad settings are now enabled by default. This should be more intuitive for Mac users. The Ibus Vietnamese input method is now supported. Improved support for OpenPGP smartcards through the installation of GnuPG 2. There are numerous other changes that may not be apparent in the daily operation of a typical user. Technical details of all the changes are listed in the Changelog. Known issues See the current list of known issues. Download or upgrade Go to the download page. What's coming up? The next Tails release is scheduled for April 7.

  11. Kali Linux is an advanced Penetration Testing and Security Auditing Linux distribution. Kali Linux Features More than 300 penetration testing tools: After reviewing every tool that was included in BackTrack, we eliminated a great number of tools that either did not work or had other tools available that provided similar functionality. Free and always will be: Kali Linux, like its predecessor, is completely free and always will be. You will never, ever have to pay for Kali Linux. Open source Git tree: We are huge proponents of open source software and our development tree is available for all to see and all sources are available for those who wish to tweak and rebuild packages. FHS compliant: Kali has been developed to adhere to the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, allowing all Linux users to easily locate binaries, support files, libraries, etc. Vast wireless device support: We have built Kali Linux to support as many wireless devices as we possibly can, allowing it to run properly on a wide variety of hardware and making it compatible with numerous USB and other wireless devices. Custom kernel patched for injection: As penetration testers, the development team often needs to do wireless assessments so our kernel has the latest injection patches included. Secure development environment: The Kali Linux team is made up of a small group of trusted individuals who can only commit packages and interact with the repositories while using multiple secure protocols. GPG signed packages and repos: All Kali packages are signed by each individual developer when they are built and committed and the repositories subsequently sign the packages as well. Multi-language: Although pentesting tools tend to be written in English, we have ensured that Kali has true multilingual support, allowing more users to operate in their native language and locate the tools they need for the job. Completely customizable: We completely understand that not everyone will agree with our design decisions so we have made it as easy as possible for our more adventurous users to customize Kali Linux to their liking, all the way down to the kernel. ARMEL and ARMHF support: Since ARM-based systems are becoming more and more prevalent and inexpensive, we knew that Kali’s ARM support would need to be as robust as we could manage, resulting in working installations for both ARMEL and ARMHF systems. Kali Linux has ARM repositories integrated with the mainline distribution so tools for ARM will be updated in conjunction with the rest of the distribution. Kali is currently available for the following ARM devices: rk3306 mk/ss808 Raspberry Pi ODROID U2/X2 Samsung Chromebook EfikaMX Beaglebone Black CuBox Galaxy Note 10.1 Kali is specifically tailored to penetration testing and therefore, all documentation on this site assumes prior knowledge of the Linux operating system. Kali is a complete re-build of BackTrack Linux, adhering completely to Debian development standards. All-new infrastructure has been put in place, all tools were reviewed and packaged, and we use Git for our VCS. After almost two years of public development (and another year behind the scenes), we are proud to announce our first point release of Kali Linux – version 1.1.0. This release brings with it a mix of unprecedented hardware support as well as rock solid stability. For us, this is a real milestone as this release epitomizes the benefits of our move from BackTrack to Kali Linux over two years ago. As we look at a now mature Kali, we see a versatile, flexible Linux distribution, rich with useful security and penetration testing related features, running on all sorts of weird and wonderful ARM hardware. But enough talk, here are the goods: The new release runs a 3.18 kernel, patched for wireless injection attacks. Our ISO build systems are now running off live-build 4.x. Improved wireless driver support, due to both kernel and firmware upgrades. NVIDIA Optimus hardware support. Updated virtualbox-tool, openvm-tools and vmware-tools packages and instructions. A whole bunch of fixes and updates from our bug-tracker changelog. And most importantly, we changed grub screens and wallpapers! Download or Upgrade Kali Linux 1.1.0 You can download the new version from our Kali Linux Download page, where you’ll also find mini-installer ISOS for both 32 and 64 bit CPU architectures. You can expect updated VMWare and multiple ARM image releases to be posted in the Offensive Security custom Kali Linux image download page in the next few days. As usual, if you’ve already got Kali Linux installed and running, there’s no need to re-download the image as you can simply update your existing operating system using simple apt commands: apt-get update apt-get dist-upgrade
  12. Linux Mint has announced that a new PC in its ‘MintBox’ line of PCs is coming in the spring: the ‘MintBox Mini’. The new box continues the distro’s long-standing partnership with Israeli computer manufacturer CompuLab, which began with the release of the original MintBox PC back in 2012. That was followed the year after by the more powerful MintBox 2, a device which sold out in Europe on its Amazon debut last year. Has it got what it takes to beat the super tiny $89 Intel Compute PC running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS? Let’s take a look. MintBox Mini Design The MintBox Mini is five times smaller than the original MintBox and is barely an inch tall. Like previous editions, the new model is fanless, with the case design working as a passive cooling system. If there’s a criticism to be levelled at the device it’s the utilitarian design. Previous MintBox models had a very distinctive look. The mini looks like an ADSL router wearing an aluminium shed. Not that appearance matters too much in a device this tiny, but even so. MintBox Mini Specs The success of Chromeboxes has proven that big things really can come in very small packages. The MintBox Mini is no exception, offering twice the performance of the MintBox 2 in a device able to slip into a pocket. Inside it touts: AMD A4 6400T CPU (64-bit, quad-core, 1GHz) Radeon R3 GPU 4GB RAM 64GB SSD Ports and extensibility are well catered for. The device offers three USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, a pair of HDMI out sockets for dual-monitor setups, headphone/mic jack and a MicroSD card reader for expanding storage. Connectivity includes integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and ethernet. There’s no mention of Bluetooth. MintBox Mini Price CompuLab will sell the MintBox Mini for $295 shipped in the US and €295 shipped in Europe. A percentage of the overall sale cost goes to Linux Mint and to cover the five year warranty provided. For more details head over to the Linux Mint announcement or check out the device on the CompuLab website. by OMG!Ubuntu!
  13. The Fedora Project is pleased to announce Fedora 21, the final release, ready to run on your desktops, servers, and in the cloud. Fedora 21 is a game-changer for the Fedora Project, and we think you’re going to be very pleased with the results. Matthew Miller has announced the release of Fedora 21, the latest stable version of Red Hat's community distribution for desktops, servers and the cloud: "The Fedora Project is pleased to announce the release of Fedora 21, ready to run on your desktops, servers and in the cloud. Fedora 21 is a game-changer for the Fedora Project, and we think you're going to be very pleased with the results. As part of the initiative, Fedora 21 comes in three flavors: Cloud, Server, and Workstation. The Fedora Workstation is a new take on desktop development from the Fedora community. Our goal is to pick the best components, and integrate and polish them. This work results in a more polished and targeted system than you've previously seen from the Fedora desktop."

  14. Grab a crate of canned food, start digging a deep underground bunker and prepare to settle into a world that will never be the same again: a powerful trojan has been uncovered on Linux. Yes, the hitherto impregnable fortress of computing nirvana has been compromised in a way that has left security experts a touch perturbed. Unplug your PC, disinfect your keyboard and buy a cat (no more YouTube ). The Tuxpocalypse is upon us. We’ve reached the end of days. Right? RIGHT? Nah, not quite. A Terrifying Anomalous Thing! Let me set off by saying that I am not underplaying the severity of this threat (known by the nickname ‘Turla’) nor, for the avoidance of doubt, am I suggesting that we as Linux users shouldn’t be concerned by the implications. The discovery of a silent trojan infecting Linux systems is terrifying. The fact it was tasked with sucking up and sending off all sorts of sensitive information is horrific. And to learn it’s been doing this for at least four years and doesn’t require root privileges? My seat is wet. I’m sorry. But — and along with hyphens and typos, there’s always a ‘but’ on this site — the panic currently sweeping desktop Linux fans, Mexican wave style, is a little out of context. Vulnerability may be a new feeling for some of us, yet let’s keep it in check: Linux remains an inherently secure operating system for desktop users. One clever workaround does not negate that and shouldn’t send you scurrying offline. State Sponsored, Targeting Governments Is a penguin snake a ‘Penguake’ or a ‘Snaguin’? ‘Turla’ is a complex APT (Advanced Persistent Threat) that has (thus far) targeted government, embassy and pharmaceutical companies’ systems for around four years using a method based on 14 year old code, no less. On Windows, where the superhero security researchers at Symantec and Kaspersky Lab first sighted the slimy snake, Turla and components of it were found to have infected hundreds (100s) of PCs across 45 countries, many through unpatched zero-day exploits. Nice one Microsoft. Further diligence by Kaspersky Lab has now uncovered that parts of the same trojan have also been active on Linux for some time. The Trojan doesn’t require elevated privileges and can “intercept incoming packets and run incoming commands on the systemâ€, but it’s not yet clear how deep its tentacles reach or how many Linux systems are infected, nor is the full extent of its capabilities known. “Turla†(and its children) are presumed to be nation-state sponsored due to its choice of targets. US and UK readers shouldn’t assume it’s “them“, either. Our own governments are just as happy to play in the mud, too. Perspective and Responsibility As terrible a breach as this discovery is emotionally, technically and ethically it remains far, far, far away from being an indication that we’re entering a new “free for all†era of viruses and malware aimed at the desktop. Turla is not a user-focused “i wantZ ur CredIt carD†virus bundled inside a faux software download. It’s a complex, finessed and adaptable threat with specific targets in mind (ergo grander ambitions than collecting a bunch of fruity tube dot com passwords, sorry ego!). Kaspersky Lab explains: “The Linux Turla module is a C/C++ executable statically linked against multiple libraries, greatly increasing its file size. It was stripped of symbol information, more likely intended to increase analysis effort than to decrease file size. Its functionality includes hidden network communications, arbitrary remote command execution, and remote management. Much of its code is based on public sources.†Regardless of impact or infection rate its precedes will still raise big, big questions that clever, clever people will now spend time addressing, analysing and (importantly) solving. IANACSE (I am not a computer security expert) but IAFOA (I am a fan of acronyms), and AFAICT (as far as I can tell) this news should be viewed as as a cautionary PSA or FYI than the kind of OMGGTFO that some sites are painting it as. Until more details are known none of us should panic. Let’s continue to practice safe computing. Avoid downloading/running scripts, apps, or binaries from untrusted sites or PPAs, and don’t venture into dodgy dark parts of the web. If you remain super concerned you can check out the Kaspersky blog for details on how to check that you’re not infected.

  16. Today I will show you how to setup, speed-up and make more secure your Linux VPS/VDS from start. This tutorial will be useful for any kind of server: web/db/storage/seedbox/e.t.c Guide suitable for Debian/Ubuntu Serer but you can easily adapt this instruction for any linux distro you like! We need a couple of tools before start: Good SSH Client - Nice Text Editor(for notes) - Our test subject is a low budget VPS from Specs: CPU : 1 VCPU RAM : 128 Mb HDD : 10Gb VM Technology : OpenVZ OS : Debian 7.0 x86 Wheezy Pretty low-end vps as you can see, but we try to get maximum from this box in this tutorial! The Begging After server deployment, you must recive e-mail from your VPS provider to your e-mail, specified during server registration. With something like this: Let's connect! Start PuTTY. When a PuTTY Configuration window opens select Session (it should be selected by default) from the Category panel on the left. In the Host Name (or IP address) field enter the our VPS IP(12.345.xx.xx). Make sure that Port field value is 22(default) like our VPS Port. Make sure that SSH is selected under Protocol (it should be selected by default). Click on Open. If you are using linux machine already(your desktop), then connect to our vps with this command: $ ssh root@12.345.xx.xx -p 22 And most likely we will get a dialogue about system security keys: The authenticity of host '[12.345.xx.xx]:22 ([12.345.xx.xx]:22)' can't be established. ECDSA key fingerprint is xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? Agree and type yes. Congratulations, you are in the system. Let's update our system: $ apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade Don't use Root account by default! By default, we are operate under the root, which is not very good for security reasons. 1. create a user which we will use for work(the easiest way): $ adduser user We will get something like this: Adding user `user' ... Adding new group `user' (1001) ... Adding new user `user' (1001) with group `user' ... Creating home directory `/home/user' ... Copying files from `/etc/skel' ... Enter new UNIX password: Retype new UNIX password: passwd: password updated successfully Changing the user information for user Enter the new value, or press ENTER for the default Full Name []: user User Room Number []: 000 Work Phone []: Home Phone []: Other []: Is the information correct? [Y/n] Y Typing a complex password(which you will not forget!) and fill in the data that we need to, or just press enter. 2. Allow user running sudo Add the user to a special sudo group: $ usermod -a -G sudo user where user is the user name. That's all, we can log out and log in under user. $ ssh user@12.345.xx.xx -p 22 And in the future you have to use sudo if you need root privileges. Secure your SSH Almost immediately after starting the server we noticed suspicious activity on port 22. Apparently Chinese porno-scanners already smell us and began brute passwords. The easiest way is to change the ssh port from 22 to any other. 1. To do this, open the configuration file of the ssh server: $ sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config Look for the line "Port 22" and replace it with "Port 354" where 354 is a any number in the range from 1 to 65535 In any case, let's see which ports are open: $ netstat -tupln | grep LISTEN And choose any port not on this list. I have to say that ports 80, 443, 3306, 22, 21, 8080 - really bad idea to use. 2. Further, limit the type of address for the connection(IPv6 or IPv4). If your server is not using IPv6, then add to file /etc/ssh/sshd_config: AddressFamily inet 3. Forbid authorization under root, look for PermitRootLogin, we expose value - no. If this parameter isn't present, add it: PermitRootLogin no 4. Allow connection only for certain accounts, in file file/etc/ssh/sshd_config: AllowUsers user list of users is written through a white spaces 5. Forbid attempt of an entrance with a empty password. Look for PermitEmptyPasswords and we expose value - no. PermitEmptyPasswords no 6. Save file and restart the ssh daemon: $ sudo /etc/init.d/ssh restart Thats all for now, we can relogin with our new parameters: $ ssh user@93.189.xx.xx -p 354 SWAP Installation In our test case in the automatic mode, swap has not been created, and with this amount of memory this is critical. Attention! This is our specific case, to check whether the swap: $ sudo swapon -s If swap not exist by default, we create it! Create, using dd, the file of the required size for the swap area, where /swap is the name and path of the file, and count=1024K size, in this case 512 MB (usual formula for swap = RAM * 1.5, but this is not our case): $ sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swap bs=1024 count=512K Next, make a record at the beginning of the file system that will be used by the kernel to work with the paging file: $ sudo mkswap /swap After this operation we will see something like that: Setting up swapspace version 1, size = 536868 KiB no label, UUID=103c4545-5fc5-47f3-a8b3-dfbdb64fd7eb The next step will activate the newly created SWAP file: $ sudo swapon /swap Next you need to edit the fstab file to connect swap at the next system start-up: $ sudo echo "/swap swap swap defaults 0 0" | sudo tee -a /etc/fstab Tweak system variables, get protection from certain types of attacks. Edit /etc/sysctl.conf $ sudo nano /etc/sysctl.conf Add these lines to the end: # Anti-smurf-attack net.ipv4.icmp_echo_ignore_broadcasts = 1 # Protection against incorrect ICMP-messages net.ipv4.icmp_ignore_bogus_error_responses = 1 # Protection against SYN-flooding net.ipv4.tcp_syncookies = 1 # Forbid source routing net.ipv4.conf.all.accept_source_route = 0 net.ipv4.conf.default.accept_source_route = 0 # Anti-spoofing net.ipv4.conf.all.rp_filter = 1 net.ipv4.conf.default.rp_filter = 1 # We do not router, unless of course it's so net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0 net.ipv4.conf.all.send_redirects = 0 net.ipv4.conf.default.send_redirects = 0 # Turn ExecShield in attacks aimed at buffer overflow or stack stall kernel.exec-shield = 1 kernel.randomize_va_space = 1 # Expand the range of available ports net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 2000 65000 # Increase the maximum size of the TCP-buffers net.ipv4.tcp_rmem = 4096 87380 8388608 net.ipv4.tcp_wmem = 4096 87380 8388608 net.core.rmem_max = 8388608 net.core.wmem_max = 8388608 net.core.netdev_max_backlog = 5000 net.ipv4.tcp_window_scaling = 1 # Accelerate the release of memory vm.swappiness = 10 Speed-up overall system performance Prelink and Preload. Prelink is intended to speed up a system by reducing the time a program needs to begin. Actual results have been mixed, but it seems to aid systems with a large number of libraries. Preloading is the action of putting and keeping target files into the RAM. The benefit is that preloaded applications start more quickly because reading from the RAM is always quicker than from the hard drive. However, part of your RAM will be dedicated to this task, but no more than if you kept the application open. 1. Prelink Installation: sudo apt-get -y install prelink Edit the file /etc/default/prelink: $ sudo nano /etc/default/prelink Change the line PRELINKING=unknown to PRELINKING=yes Run: $ sudo /etc/cron.daily/prelink 2. Preload Installation: $ sudo apt-get -y install preload That's all! Fail2Ban Would you like to type “last†and just realize someone has just login into your server from a far country? Well the solution is here! We will be installing fail2ban, witch is capable of monitoring not just SSH but many other daemons. It is quite cool, it send you an email after X attempts and include that bad IP into iptables for X amount of time. 1. Install Fail2Ban $ sudo apt-get install fail2ban 2. Configuring Fail2ban: Fail2ban is automatically configured for the most part. However, little items need to be tweaked. /etc/fail2ban/fail2ban.conf is responsible for general settings for fail2ban, such as what log to append to. More specific settings can be changed in /etc/fail2ban/jail.conf. However, it’s recommended that this file not be directly changed. Instead, make a copy to jail.local. The local file with override the .conf one. $ sudo cp /etc/fail2ban/jail.conf /etc/fail2ban/jail.local Open config: $ sudo nano /etc/fail2ban/jail.local [DEFAULT] # “ignoreip†can be an IP address, a CIDR mask or a DNS host ignoreip = bantime = 86400 maxretry = 5 [ssh-iptables] enabled = true filter = sshd action = iptables[name=SSH, port=ssh, protocol=tcp] sendmail-whois[name=SSH,,] logpath = /var/log/auth.log maxretry = 5 logpath=/var/log/secure (for RedHat,CentOS,Fedora) First, under [DEFAULT] find ignoreip. It’s always important for you to have a way in! These are IPs are fail2ban will ignore – IPs listed here can always have invalid login. These need to be space separated. Check also the bantime, maxrety and other settings. I believe the bantime of only 10min ( 600 sec) is not enough to handle an attack, so I raised it to 86400 (24 hours).Also adjust the logfiles path and names to your system. Then restart the service: $ /etc/init.d/fail2ban restart And check your iptables: $ iptables -L If you want to unblock someone just do: $ iptables -D fail2ban-ssh 1 Show failed SSH logins by date: # cat /var/log/secure | grep ‘Failed password’ | sort | uniq -c Other Tips: Stop the Service /etc/init.d/fail2ban stop Delete the socket if avalible rm /tmp/fail2ban.sock Start the Service /etc/init.d/fail2ban start Check if fail2ban is working fail2ban-client ping Answer should be “pong†if the answer is not “pong†run away or CRY FOR HELP
  17. RootGaming is a Linux-gaming website created by Linux users to bring awareness of the growing Linux gaming community. Boosted by new devices such as iPad and Android phones and tablets, developers can no longer afford to focus on just one platform. Publications and software are increasingly becoming platform independent. This change is causing the Linux platform to rise. Increasingly, more games and software are becoming available for Linux. The number of commercial and closed-source games that support the Linux platform has grown exponentially. The growth is the result of a various changes and developments. One of the biggest influences to native Linux gaming are Humble Bundle, distribution platforms like Steam and Desura but also game-engines such as Unity3D, Unigine and Torque contribute to the growth of Linux as gaming platform. We strongly believe in the potential of Linux as a gaming platform, which is why we launched back in 2012. RootGamer is an online Linux gaming community to help spread consumer awareness. Linux was originally developed as a free operating system for Intel x86-based personal computers. It has since been ported to more computer hardware platforms than any other operating system. It is a leading Operating System on servers and other big iron systems such as mainframe computers and supercomputers: more than 90% of today’s 500+ fastest supercomputers run some variant of linux/unix. Linux Game Database, primarily for Linux games that are beyond the planing stage and have released more than tech demos, ether as source code or binary files. The information about a game is usually taken from the game site. The games are carefully categorized and presented with screenshots and videos. The submission guidelines explain what kind of Linux games are in the database. You can browse the database whilst applying a lot of filters to tweak the output. This site uses two methods to rank games: user votes and popularity the popularity is the sum of visits for the past three days. The L.G.C. (LinuxGameCast) project aims to provide quality Linux game capture, news, reviews and whatever the hell else we come up with. Do you know of a new game we should cover? Are you working on something made of awesomesauce? How about news that effects the Linux gaming industry? If so, scream in our direction! GamingOnLinux is the home of Linux gaming. Covering Linux Games, Reviews and more. /r/Linux_Gaming as a community. It's a place for discussing GNU/Linux gaming and GNU/Linux games. LinuxGames - Embrace your inner penguin!

  21. Tails, The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 1.2, is out. Tails is a live system that aims to preserve your privacy and anonymity. It helps you to use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship almost anywhere you go and on any computer but leaving no trace unless you ask it to explicitly. It is a complete operating system designed to be used from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card independently of the computer's original operating system. It is Free Software and based on Debian GNU/Linux. Tails comes with several built-in applications pre-configured with security in mind: web browser, instant messaging client, email client, office suite, image and sound editor, etc. This release fixes numerous security issues and all users must upgrade as soon as possible. Changes Notable user-visible changes include: Major new features Install (most of) the Tor Browser, replacing our previous Iceweasel-based browser. The version installed is from TBB 4.0 and is based on Firefox 31.2.0esr. This fixes the POODLE vulnerability. Upgrade Tor to Confine several important applications with AppArmor. Bugfixes Install Linux 3.16-3 (version 3.16.5-1). Minor improvements Upgrade I2P to 0.9.15, and isolate I2P traffic from the Tor Browser by adding a dedicated I2P Browser. Also, start I2P automatically upon network connection, when the i2p boot option is added. Make it clear that TrueCrypt will be removed in Tails 1.2.1 (ticket #7739), and document how to open TrueCrypt volumes with cryptsetup. Enable VirtualBox guest additions by default (ticket #5730). In particular this enables VirtualBox's display management service. Make the OTR status in Pidgin clearer thanks to the formatting toolbar (ticket #7356). Upgrade syslinux to 6.03-pre20, which should fix UEFI boot on some hardware. See the online Changelog for technical details. What's coming up? The next Tails release is scheduled for November 25. Have a look to our roadmap to see where we are heading to.

This release fixes numerous security issues and all users must upgrade as soon as possible. We prepared this release mainly to fix a serious flaw in the Network Security Services (NSS) library used by Firefox and other products allows attackers to create forged RSA certificates. Before this release, users on a compromised network could be directed to sites using a fraudulent certificate and mistake them for legitimate sites. This could deceive them into revealing personal information such as usernames and passwords. It may also deceive users into downloading malware if they believe it’s coming from a trusted site. Changes Notable user-visible changes include: Security fixes Upgrade the web browser to 24.8.0esr-0+tails3~bpo70+1 Install Linux 3.16-1 Numerous other software upgrades that fix security issues: GnuPG, APT, DBus, Bash, and packages built from the bind9 and libav source packages See the online Changelog for technical details. Known issues The version of tor shipped in Tails 1.1.2 really is, not as reported in the logs and by tor --version. The reason is that the package was built with outdated files generated by, but this only affects the reported version, not the code. Longstanding known issues. I want to try it or to upgrade! Go to the download page. As no software is ever perfect, we maintain a list of problems that affects the last release of Tails. What's coming up? The next Tails release is scheduled for October 14. Have a look to our roadmap to see where we are heading to.
