Linux.org domain hacked, plastered with trolling, filth and anti-transgender vandalism

Donkey Molestor X

Destroy All Mosnters: are you trying to justify hatred against trans persons and vandalism of a website because a transgender person beat somebody else up in an MMA fight?

That is incredibly childish.

If you are really committed to hatred of trans persons I urge you to put your money where your mouth is and dash your smartphone on the floor. After all, you wouldn't want to be any where near the ARM instruction architecture once you find out that Sophie Wilson, it's designer, was born Roger Wilson.

IPv6: It's only NAT-ural that network nerds are dragging their feet...

Donkey Molestor X

guess who has fifteen psuedopodia and got 17/20 on ipv6-test.com?

funny that folks are getting riled up about IPv6 again because i just got an IPv6 address on my home router after my last reboot. i'm getting 17/20 on ipv6-test.com. i can see regmedia.co.uk coming over IPv6 in IPvFoo. Guess I don't need my HE tunnel anymore. And my mobile phones have been getting IPv6 addresses over LTE for at least a year now.

It's not all fun and games being behind CGNAT. Just wait until you get blacklisted from a service because of something that someone else did who shares or shared your public IPv4 address did. You won't be praising IPv4 after that, I'll bet.

I got banned from 4chan once completely innocently because some other miscreant behind my public IPv4 was a bad boy/girl. And then I couldn't post memes and that made me sad. Yes, I'm too cheap to get a VPN.

Dirty COW redux: Linux devs patch botched patch for 2016 mess

Re: Huh?

> There's no language, methodology, tool or analyser that can stop code having bugs.

You are suffering from a basic confusion. You believe that just because you have never and will never take a systematic approach to software safety that that somehow implies that anybody else taking a systematic approach to software safety is doomed to failure. Either that or you're peddling the old dodge that a methodology or technology that only solves SOME of the problems instead of literally ALL the problems ever is absolutely worthless.

"Bugs happen!", you say, while chuckling, and then you, and everybody else who thinks like you, gleefully inflict them on others.

It's like finding a car dealer who only sells Ford Pintos and then, when a steady stream of maimed and burnt customers shamble back in says "Ford Pintos are perfectly safe! All you have to do is never let anybody crash into your car from behind! Man, I'm sure exhausted from solving all the problems!"

Some 'security people are f*cking morons' says Linus Torvalds

Re: Can't disagree..

> Otherwise, frankly, the Linux community will start experiencing the joys that Windows customers have lived with for years, basically the user and business community being their beta testers and the "out the door now, we'll fix it later" mentality.

Hahahaha! You think Linux users aren't already involuntarily deputized testers? Try installing a new kernel update the day it comes out on a (hopefully not production) server. Watch all kinds of shit that you never thought could break suddenly break.

Re: Libre Office formatting vs MS Office

> The Numpties that run our IT dept have put a rule in place that stops me disabling OneDrive. When I'm travelling, I'd have to connect to the internet, fire up the corporate VPN, login and then connect to OneDrive just to refresh the list of recent documents.

There's one piece of information that you could tell us that would determine whether this is a good idea or a bad idea. Does your work laptop support AND have full drive encryption? If you're not using full drive encryption and you forget your laptop in an airport bathroom or it "disappears" from your luggage then locally stored work documents become a HUGE problem for your employer compared to your personal annoyance of learning OneDrive.

Re: Wasn't that the primadonna maintainer project

> Hmm... Wasn't that the primadonna maintainer which could not stand Linus blowouts? That figures.

Given Linus's track record, the maintainer was probably punished for pointing out and trying to fix security holes. Linus is famous for his disrespect of security researchers, considering them no better than "masturbating monkeys" - his words not mine.

He also thinks that people who displease him should have the brake lines on their cars cut. He's pretty sick like that.

Linus's apathetic attitude to security concerns is a tax that every computer user gets to pay - every time another Linux-enabled piece of IoT crapware DDoSes the 'net to oblivion.

Lok Technologies , a San Jose, Calif.-based maker of networking gear, started out using Linux in its equipment but switched to OpenBSD four years ago after company founder Simon Lok, who holds a doctorate in computer science, took a close look at the Linux source code.

“You know what I found? Right in the kernel, in the heart of the operating system, I found a developer’s comment that said, ‘Does this belong here?’ “Lok says. “What kind of confidence does that inspire? Right then I knew it was time to switch.”

Linus Torvalds slams 'pure garbage' from 'clowns' at Grsecurity

Donkey Molestor X

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

If there is a way to defeat an entire class of errors (heap-stack collisions) would it not make more sense to implement it than play whack-a-mole in one piece of code at a time? Rather than writing it off as "pure garbage" just because you don't personally like the source of the fix?

I guess Linus's attitude is good for the security industry as security researchers get to find the same vuln. in program after program and pretend they're doing original research each time. As long as it is the users who pay the price what does he care?

say you have an sdr and you have firmware updating software and drivers installed on a vm on the satellite. you do some experiment or run some test that needs certain characteristics from the sdr. then you test a new one with your vm on the ground. when you get it the way you want you just upload the image to the satellite and you can update the firmware updating software which updates the sdr knowing that you tested the whole deal on the ground.

See the cute thing about this sentiment is that you think your crap isn't the stupid crap that will get weeded out.

Windows updates? Just trust us, says Microsoft executive

Donkey Molestor X

> Strangely that's exactly what happens with zero day exploits, except in your utopia *everyone* is a dumb mf who is part of the problem.

yes, both people who allow automatic updates and people who manually scrutinize and approve updates are vulnerable to zero day exploits. however, the person who manually scrutinizes and approves updates for his home computer is additionally vulnerable every minute he has his computer on and is not installing a patch or, probably, forgetting about it completely because he'll get distracted by something else.

your logic is like saying a knife-proof vest or a bullet-proof vest for a policeman is "useless" because it doesn't protect him from a V-2 rocket falling on him from out of the sky.

ironically dear old auntie or granny with her computer set to accept patches automatically is LESS of a disease vector on the internet than Mr. Badass-sysadmin-@-home who says "Oh I'll test that patch as soon as I back up my drives and make a new slipstreamed install image and unmount my NAS and oh this is boring I'm going to play video games now".

Re: El Reg sat down with....? Wow!

easily 99% of you who say that Windows 10 is the last straw said that about Vista and said that about Windows 95. then you moved to Linux and then tried to listen to an mp3 or print a file or read a Word document or, I don't know, LOCK YOUR SCREEN, and it fucked up in some incredibly esoteric or stupid way.

you think i'm going to show my fucking parents the difference between Xfce or GNOME or KDE and play "find the start bar" for them or "what fucking workspace am I in now?" you think I'm going to explain the difference between an rpm, tgz, or deb? if you hate microsoft so much, YOU fucking do all that shit for me, for free. your payment will be the ineffable, warm-and-fuzzy joy you get knowing that you're "really sticking it to" a multimillion dollar company by sacrificing hours a week playing BOFH: The Home Game.

Linus Torvalds admits 'buggy crap' made it into Linux 4.8

Donkey Molestor X

I wish we could get Linus to read this article about the programmers who wrote software for the Space Shuttle.

https://www.fastcompany.com/28121/they-write-right-stuff?show_rev_content

The tl;dr is 1) have a collegial but firewalled and adversial relationship with QA. When they stop a buggy release and detect a new bug, they win, and they want to win. 2) don't blame the developer who did the bug, blame the meta-bug in your system that tolerated the bug's creation. Fix that meta-bug and you've got a better pipeline and you don't just stop that specific occurence but reduce the chances of future occurences of said bug.

Maybe buggy Linux kernels can't kill seven astronauts like buggy Space-Shuttle code could've but the economic damage they CAN do needs to be used to make a business case. The business case is to create a build pipeline optimized for success rather than blame-passing, personal humiliation, and scatalogical vituperation.

watergate must've seemed far fetched at the time too

While I also want to withhold judgment on this theory it does remind me of a previous scandal:

Watergate must've seemed far-fetched at the time too.

"Why would Nixon's cronies orchestrate a bungled burglary at the campaign offices of the Democratic party?"

"Why would they then break into the offices of an adversial lawyer's psychiatrist looking for dirt?"

"How could the optics of having hours of crazy paranoid recordings but THEN having an 18-minute gap in them not be understood to be terrible?"

"How can you order the deputy attorney general to fire the special prosecutor in charge of the case and not think that would give off a bad smell? - a smell amplified by the subsequent resignation of the deputy attorney general and the attorney general in protest?"

It all seems crazy when summarized like that but, in hindsight, all that crazy shit took place! Some powerful, otherwise intelligent people, decided that that would be a winning game plan!

So, yeah, I gotta say I'm pretty interested in how this SpaceX/ULA thing shakes out.

Re: So?

counterpoint: ken and dmr built Unix, the very system he has made a mere clone of, and they managed to build it without being assholes.

assholery is neither a necessary, nor sufficient condition for genius. Linus will be bypassed when more people see through the bullshit and understand that Linux succeeds despite him and not because of him.

Oh... mention to him how he wouldn't have anything around the kernel without the FSF and watch him blow steam out of his ears. That can be fun.

I wonder if he has the same scorn of the lawyers that IBM gamefully paid for to fight off SCO. Nobody in the Linux business would have a pot to piss in if they hadn't had their own 800-lb. gorilla to save them that time.

I would love it if Intel, Red Hat, and everyone else that pays kernel devs to put up with his abuse just forked the kernel and let Linus break his toys and kick and cry by himself in his playpen.

I think we can all agree that the Linux Kernel Mailing List is a social cesspool as far as manners and comportment are concerned. It's too bad that with a minimal amount of research you can discover that, despite the prevailing belief among the commentards of El Reg, being an asshole is not positively correlated with code quality:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criticism_of_Linux#Kernel_code_quality

"... I started to feel a little embarrassed by what we have as our own [Linux] kernel. The more I looked at the [OpenSolaris] code, the more it felt like it pretty much did everything the Linux kernel has been trying to do for ages. Not only that, but it's built like an aircraft, whereas ours looks like a garage job with duct tape by comparison..."
