The OpenSSL "heartbleed" vulnerability

Linux Weekly News - h, 2014-04-07 23:23
This page has extensive information on CVE-2014-0160, an information disclosure vulnerability in OpenSSL otherwise known as the "heartbleed bug." "The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users." See also this OpenSSL advisory; version 1.0.1g contains the fix.

St. Pierre: Xwayland

Linux Weekly News - h, 2014-04-07 14:03
Jasper St. Pierre writes about the Xwayland back end, which has been merged into the X server core sooner than had been expected. "So, why did it succeed so fast? To put it simply, Xwayland has been completely rearchitected to be leaner, cleaner, faster, and better than ever before. It’s not done yet; direct rendering (e.g. games using OpenGL) and by extension 2D acceleration aren't supported yet, but it’s in the pipeline." Lots of details can be found in the article.
