Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Drupal, a fully-featured content management framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues:

 2014-11-18 DSA-3074 php5 - security update

Francisco Alonso of Red Hat Product Security found an issue in the file utility, whose code is embedded in PHP, a general-purpose scripting language. When checking ELF files, note headers are incorrectly checked, thus potentially allowing attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) by supplying a specially crafted ELF file.

 2014-11-16 DSA-3073 libgcrypt11 - security update

Daniel Genkin, Itamar Pipman and Eran Tromer discovered that Elgamal encryption subkeys in applications using the libgcrypt11 library, for example GnuPG 2.x, could be leaked via a side-channel attack.

The NetBSD project has announced two important stability updates for its highly portable operating system. The NetBSD Project is pleased to announce NetBSD 5.1.5, the fifth security/bugfix update of the NetBSD 5.1 release branch, and NetBSD 5.2.3, the third security/bugfix update of the NetBSD 5.2 release branch. They represent a selected subset of fixes deemed important for security or stability reasons, and if you are running a prior release of either branch, we strongly suggest that you update to one of these releases. Details on the two updated branches of NetBSD can be found in the release notes for NetBSD 5.1.5 and NetBSD 5.2.3.

Quantum OS aims to build a new operating system based on Linux, with a user interface built on Qt and designed according to Google's Material Design guidelines. We plan to develop the desktop shell and applications primarily using Qt 5 and QML, which will allow us to build highly polished and dynamic user interfaces and will work well for implementing Material Design. If possible, we will build the desktop shell in as much QML as possible built on top of the QtCompositor API, which provides a Qt framework for building a Wayland compositor. As for the base system, they're still not sure if they're going for Ubuntu or Arch. We plan to initially leverage an existing operating system, most likely Arch or Ubuntu. Arch is a strong possibility because of the simple packaging manager, lightweight base system, and the rolling release concept. Our goal is to base our work on the latest upstream versions available, with no patches or modifications, so our work will run on any base Linux distro that supports Wayland.

Using Photoshop usually requires lugging a typically cumbersome, expensive computer around, and changing that experience has been the dream of many creatives for years. As we found out back in September, it's a problem that Adobe has been actively working with Google to solve. The two companies have been working together for almost two years to bring Photoshop to the browser, and they finally have a working version called Photoshop Streaming that they're letting educational institutions apply to test over the next six months. Yesterday, I got a look at it in action when Adobe's director of engineering, Kirk Gould, remotely ran me through a brief demo of the program. News   [more] [xml]
