"Hello everybody and welcome to the Abundant podcast It season 13 episode 14 It's the final episode of the year and of season thirteen it wasn't that unlucky or general? Hi, we don't say a big thank you to everyone who supported us this year with our patreon subscriptions and with one off PayPal contributions now as usual his last show of the year. We are going to be going on Hiatus for a couple of months at the beginning of next year to give us and all of you are break. So Martin, would you like to explain what's going to happen with our page? And while we're off are yes, so the first thing that's going to happen is there will be a payment taken on January 1st or whatever, you know, the first week of January is and that would be the money that we use to pay for the December production costs, but then we will pause patreon taking money for a boon to podcast and off. All we return or if indeed we returned because you know, we haven't had our career yet and decided if we're going to do this again, but we will be pausing the patrian whilst we're off. Yeah, great. So yes, if you're subscribed and you want to continue to support us then continue to be subscribed. We won't take your money without giving you podcasts. And in the meantime Alan what have you been up to recently? Well just in time for the last episode. I have removed the audio noise that was plaguing my system and also doubled my speed on my desktop PC. Wow. Is this the same fix for both? It was it was one fix that did both things. It turns out I use ethernet over power adapters tp-link devices off because my office is like the complete opposite end of the house from the internet connection and to get it here. I didn't run ethernet. I just use ethernet over power and I've been using it for years and there's Bob Background like crackle for a while and I couldn't pinpoint what it was and I thought it was cables crossing over or something like that. And also the internet in this room is 50% of what it should be like a nice day for like hundred hundred and ten Meg or something. I get 4850 something like that. And when the kids are out one day, I unplugged loads of things and Shuffle things around and it turned out it was off the ethernet over power device, which has a through socket was plugged into a four-way thing and I moved it. So it's plugged directly in the wall magically met audio problem goes away a my internet is now twice as fast. That's all I did. The only thing that changed was me moving the ethernet over power socket to be plugged directly in the wall. Suddenly everything faster and better well great. Well, I'm glad you got that done in time for one recording. Sorry joke not in or even up to I have been playing Hotshot racing with my dog. Ends on that their Internet. It's a good game. This is a driving game. I imagine it is. I think I may have mentioned it earlier in the year, but it's having a bit of a Revival at the motion. It's a low poly retro arcade style racer available on Steam and you can play it under proton. And now now I'm not working for you know, the Christmas break. I was looking to have some fun. So I've started hosting some Linux game nights and this is the game. We're playing at the moment doing an excellent Romper around the tracks and can people watch you playing even if they don't want to play they can I've started a second YouTube channel just for playing games on Linux and it's all streamed there and everyone loves playing along with me has a voice in the room and it's a real group effort. And in fact, some of the others are streaming as well. So you can even own overlay multiple angles of the game being played at home. I'm brilliant and

"I'm a happy cintos user to the got a fleet of cintos eight servers out there in the world and my job is managing those. They're running my business. And i'm thinking what standing between me and run and rocky on these machines. What is between those two goals and turned into you. Greg founder rocky lennox like what what has to happen for because this is gonna be a big deal for a lot of people right like you can't flip a switch and you're running rocky lennox or maybe the switch has to be created. A lot has to happen between now and then. So what does that look like. And what are the challenges involved. You just nailed it eventually. It is going to be a flip of a switch on ice but we have to build that switch. So we're we're still building. Who's bill switch. Greg there's a lot of work that's happening right now. To to build the infrastructure such that we can properly build all of the packages all of the repositories and in the installer so that people can very easily transition from existing santos into rocky. Now when it's time to transition we foresee that it's literally going to be just one command you're going to be able to copy paste command. It's not even going to be incredibly unruly but copy paste one command. Put it into a root shell on your system hit enter and it will just do its thing literally. That's going to be a single f. command dna. If you're not familiar is the new version of yum and from that command it will automatically replace the centers repositories with the rocky repositories. And from that will. It will basically spin up a dependency chain on on the cintos trademarks and logos and whatnot replace those with the rocky trademarks and logos and then automatically set you up so that every subsequent upgrade that you need to make is going to be now hitting pulling from rocky because the two operating systems are basically completely compatible with each other. You don't actually have to replace. All the binary in the underlying sent does eight system to move over to rocky so this means that it is absolutely a seamless transition. It's the equivalent of just doing a standard upgrade up rather an update right. So that's great news. The not so great news is that there is a good news sometimes for software projects but the one that's putting a fire under y'all's butts is that there's like a hard deadline if you wanna like never go out of support right. Is that by the end of two thousand twenty one centimeters eight cent owes santos may be questioned this for the next week or two rocky lennox really say So it's gonna go out of support end of this year and so come january twenty twenty two okay. So it's going to be a seamless update flick of a switch for the users whenever it happens but like how much has to happen between now and then there's so many things that have to make. That seamless right. Yeah and the. The biggest piece of this in terms of timeline is not. What's on our shoulders. It's what's in term what basically enterprises in the processes that enterprises have to go through to properly validate and make decisions. This was a shock for me. I mean yeah. I came out of academia government and and whatnot spent a long time. There we want to make a decision we just go talk to the right people and and we just do it. Large enterprises don't work like that generally speaking you know when when they want to change operating system or do something along this line they after they have to validate the have to make sure that it's going to work to get all the appropriate author authorizations after tests there. There's a lot of process that needs to go through at least generally speaking for large organizations. You're talking at least six months of time right there. So this means that whatever. We do doesn't need to get done before. December twenty twenty one. It needs to get done by. At least you know the end of q. Two if not more like mid q. Too so that's what our target is. Were targeting cue to to get. The packages built the repositories up. There get everything signed tested and released such that now. Enterprises can start their testing process to figure out. What do they want to do. Moving forward. are we giving them enough time to make that decision properly. Given the the noushin. The vacuum the momentum. That's happening here. Do you imagine there's going to be a big awareness campaign necessary to sort of make those out there aware of what's happening with cintos and the change like not. Everybody is in trenches on the news. You got a lot of developers obviously managing these systems but is there a sort of uphill awareness battle to deal with as well in addition to all this extra creating of the switch and putting out there by july one or whatever. I think that there is. But i always think there is There's always information to disseminate even the people that have that have now heard about what it is that we're doing i've actually. I've spent some time. You know looking on read it and looking at in various you know post and whatnot that people are putting out there and i'm actually sometimes surprised about what people are saying about what it is that we're doing. Not because they're not in alignment or the other against it at all. No i mean. Almost everybody across the board is is really excited about this. But there's a lot of misunderstandings in terms of what it is that we're setting out to do First and foremost were setting out to to basically have a transition path from cintos so people that are currently have their infrastructure built with that. They don't need to worry The community is. Is you know swinging in to save the day in a matter of speaking. We're going to have that. Have that transition path available very very easily. The they're not gonna have to worry about the people that want to continue on with sense. Stream will absolutely be able to no issue whatsoever. It's just now. We have a transition path for the people. That aren't really looking at central stream in. Wanna stay in alignment with red hat. Enterprise lennox so that i think is where we need to spend some time. Religious kind of getting the word out is in terms of this. This is a new operating system but at the same time. It's not a new operating system right. Oh that sounds really kind of funny. But it's true. It's a resurrection. I'm anyway yeah. It's a resurrection of all principles and unladen plans. That never really fruition. Quite the way needed to project. Wise organizationally in seattle the necessary things technically but a lot of them kind of and then. Obviously your departure as we talked about before. I'm sure a lot of that. Plays into how cintos played out. And now you're just sort of resurrecting your original flag. Yeah yeah and said rocky lennox's here the flags up barrett. If you.

"This got slash dotted and Huge amount of attention was brought to send those as a result of this. And i literally was was coming up the stairwell at lawrence berkeley lab and building fifty backward cliffs dole out if you're followed the cuckoo's egg but cliff stole. Was you know working their way. Way coming up the same same stairwell and i get into my office. My phone's ringing. i pick it up. It's redhead legals calling me on my office phone at berkeley lab saying i thought we had this covered. Thought we had a deal. Why the hell do this. This made us look really really bad as a stop again. You have to tell me what just happened. Because i'm unaware just sat down on my office. What's going on and they shared with me. What you know what happened. I said and they said look for this. We're actually coming after you now. And i basically said well i it would be pointless. I'm going to that disassociate myself from the project. At this point here the people who are responsible for doing that. Please don't sue me. And that was the that was the gist of it and that was why we ended up going into a different direction. Must've been pretty savvy though taft to be so foundational to the project so involve i mean to the name and i mean like you're part of the ability to call cintos yeses sent s or santa's or whatever you wanna to call it like a foundational person to have to leave onto those terms. I was happy not to be sued left. It was like. Here's the door. Yeah yeah and you know what i mean. These things happen. Yeah yeah it was upsetting. But you know things happen. And the santos team had some problems later on With some of those people who actually did that is. There was an open letter to santos out of you guys have seen us Where the developers of it were unable to reach the person who owned the domain. The person who owned the donation buttons and was receiving all of the donations in all of this and they they posted actually an open letter to this person because they wouldn't you wouldn't respond and they it. It was a little bit difficult for them but they were finally able to get a hold of the project again and santos has definitely had some ups and downs and it has not been you know a very stable project and there's a lot of reasons for that but it's definitely had some ups and downs and since red hat has taken over for me for the most part. It's actually it's big. It's become much stable. It's become much more reasonable in terms of how the project has been managed and whatnot. And i don't mean to say that it wasn't managed very well by the team but it's definitely had its share of drama over the years. This call richard. I would say at least by assumption that our ability to open source. Well meaning organizationally Foundationally in all the way has matured of the ears and this may have been as you mentioned back in two thousand four like we've learned a lot in the the mindset the the morals of open source of always been there but how to do. It has been a variance in. It's been very over. The i think i would assume that's attributed attributed to the fact that is just how to open sources matured and that might be a side effect of this ups and downs is just we've learned and you're learning as an organization. Yeah that's that's a very fair statement. When i first started doing this you know. Managing a small open source. Project is is not a big deal but as soon as you start getting a lot of attention a lot of contributors it becomes a management problem. It becomes setting expectations coordination and really just kind of keeping people involved in you know and you have to manage very a demands. It very inclusively right so how to do. That is actually a difficult problem. The way that i did it with santos was a struggle. I didn't have the experience of still very young. And trying to figure out what best to do and there were people there that had a a more aggressive stance than i did and they were able to manipulate the project a little bit and take it over. Which is what we saw happen. At this point. I have a much larger amount of experience both in terms of what to do as well as what not to do and i do feel as though that rocky is now getting the benefit of that experience. And i'm very excited to to be able to To demonstrate how. I believe that you know an open source project should be run how to be maintained in how we can take precautions to make sure that it is not only you know inclusively managed it is not only stable but it also has the appropriate community promises necessary to to ensure that things like what happened with. Cintos would not happen again right there. There's a certain amount of kind of core fundamental leadership that needs to be put into place everything from you know charters to do documentation to transparency. That just needs to occur. Big open source project to survive. Failing that you're gonna end up with is going to be politics there's going to be counter agendas and there's going to be no way to really hold people accountable for doing particular things so you have to be very transparent very upfront about that. And that's what we're doing with rocky right now. Not all of the decisions are being. They're not completely right up in everybody's face but what we're doing is we're documenting exactly what decisions are being made publicly. What decisions are being made privately. However we managing security of information security of data so for example. Here's a really big one. Cents always had kind of a fundamental problem of trust because every time you build a package for the operating system. That package has to be cryptographic signed to sign. That package means you have to have the private keys and the pass phrase necessary to decrypt that private key so you can use it to sign your package. Well let's go back like fifteen.

I have removed the audio noise that was plaguing my system and also doubled my speed on my desktop PC. Wow. Is this the same fix for Bose? It was it was one fix that did both things. It turns out I use ethernet over power adapters tp-link devices because my office is like the complete opposite end of the house from the internet connection and to get it here.

This is a driving game. I imagine it is. I think I may have mentioned it earlier in the year, but it's having a bit of a Revival at the moment. It's a low poly retro arcade style game racer available on Steam and you can play it under proton. And now now I'm not working for you know, the Christmas break. I was looking to have some fun so long I've started hosting some Linux game nights and this is the game.

I've started a second YouTube channel just for playing games on Linux and it's all streamed there and everyone who's playing along with me has a voice in the room and it's a group effort. And in fact, some of the others are streaming as well. So you can even own overlay multiple angles of the game being played at the same time brilliant. And with that let's get on with the show you as it's the last show of the year. We thought we would have a big fight respective on all of the good news that happened in 2020. So let's begin back in episode one or the 24th of March Martin. What good news did you find? I was delighted by Alain running. The urban too long will paper World Cup and Hardy heroine being voted as the all-time favorite a bun to desktop wallpaper who would possibly have seen that result coming off but what transpired is I did a bit of archaeology and we dug up the original artwork for that and we were able to reproduce a 4K version which was included in the focal fossa. LTS release later in the year nice brilliant and speaking of that LTS release. We had more good news in a purple. Yes, indeed April was of course the release of the the focal fossa LTS release and you know, I think for Alan as much as for me, you know, this is a landmark for us off. The LTS is a very important but you know personally this was my first time around being, you know engineering director for a bunch of desktops. So it were it was, you know, Grill milestone for me personally and professionally and this is now the distro that's going to be out there for the next five years, you know running on all manner of you know, laptops and workstations Allen. Yeah following on from that was a nice Community led a bunch of testing week that we talked about back in episode three, I think this year and the thing I loved about that was it was community-oriented. They didn't even have to ask permission. They didn't have to you know, get canonical approval to do this. It was just a bunch of community people who decided let's get together and get some testing of 2004 before it's released and they organized wage for all of the flavors and it really helps a lot more people were had more eyeballs on on 2004 than previous releases. So it was it was very welcome that people were doing it and he May Roam Shuttleworth did an interview with ZDNet where he spoke about canonical's finances possible initial public offering and going into some details about canonical's profitability, which is interesting because ZDNet did some looking into canonical's reports which they file which show is actually been a profitable company since 2018, which is really cool to see the way they talk about how it's not as profitable as redhat because you'd have to pay as much women too as you do Fred her but it's really cool to see it's actually, you know, financially self-sustaining now and there's a possible path to it going public but there's reasons for caution about especially given the the current situation in the world. It'll be interesting to see how that pans out in the coming years. Martin so later in may we announced the codename for our what was the urban to 2010 release and that code name was groovy gorilla and I'm very pleased that because I managed to convince Mark shuttleworth that that's the codename we should go with and and he he decided to go with it. So yeah, what's the what's the bucket list moment? There should also led to having gorilla based wallpapers and gorilla based t-shirts and stuff. But yet Grill is an iconic animal rather than some weird squirrel the animal that nobody have it scrolling teacher. Yes. Yes and jumping ahead to do now and yeah Lenovo made their entire workstation range of a.m. For brunch and obviously as a ThinkPad nerd this made me quite happy. And so this was a good news item for the middle of the year and I haven't actually bought one yet. I'm I'm still I thought These machines and thinking carefully about what my next laptop purchase will be. But the fact that you can buy Lenovo is now with Ubuntu pre-installed and available directly from their website page makes me very happy. So that was good to see that. Yeah, and it also marked that this year. We had more of an to certified certified devices than any previous year. So, you know

"A way though. It's not the official bookmarks feature quite it hat or click rather on here so i've got a programming collection. Just a few programming. to'real i added. Okay there you know. i'm gonna go back here. I've been putting the tech news this week and here so far so has a way to add notes into your collections as well so it's not just like barks stuff i got let you can write notes such kind of like Like say on youtube. It's like this is like your watch later lists versus your favorites There's this kind of maybe just kind of flagging these things are not making them favorites. But something that you're interested in currently yeah. I'd probably say something like that. But yeah you could write notes here. And in this case i use the notes as labels but yeah i can add like this is a note. I don't need it to be a label blah blah blah going to click the check there okay and added that to the bottom collection right on i. I delete that. Because i really don't want that. The mets gone right on cool. So yeah i thought that was a really cool feature so not like a real bookmark anything else. I missed there. I could send these to excel one. Note word senate's and it's pinterest pack. I could sort by. The date created as far as the collections. Go so i guess if you're using like microsoft office software on lenox this kind of help you of keep everything in the same ecosystem Yeah pretty much yeah I wonder if there's some way to senate other things as well we'll have looked into it that much But yeah at a way to keep that all in the same ecosystem and keep it organized at throwing nice there So let's see where am let's see buck marks are still there. Of course they've got the slow bug. Mark icon here And you see my bookmarks there So you can import bookmarks straight from fire fox okay. It doesn't give you an option to import but marks from chrome possible to do that. But it's not so user friendly right now but you know lennox users a lot of us are typically the type that we're well into in for our to get what we want done so basically had to go into chrome goto the bookmarks and export the foul at squad to create an html foul. Okay and then you have to import it and the bookmarks being run in the same Engine they would kind of be easier to do that i would. I would have thought they would have had that functionality built in But i was able to import the html file okay and brigham bookmark. So i've got bookmarks bar and all my bookmarks there. I've got way too many of them for their years. You have them so yes. I have my bookmarks an edge and Which is great. Because i think i might keep edge as my main browser blasts for most as it might sound you know. Luckily we don't have that many fans yet so you won't get too much eight meal sure. Yeah yeah but hey. If i get hate mail from people that's fine. That's their opinion. I don't. I don't know that anyone's going to actually threaten me. I hope they want threaten the say. Julius getting hanes doing it wrong. Yeah exactly to be controversy of this episode. Bischoff say controversy creates cash right. Yeah the soft by eric. Bischoff is a pro wrestling personality. Who yeah he would do koch of ourselves saying so. We'll just leave it at that and you know He made money yeah. Microsoft urge has adams basically the same thing as the chrome extension use chrome and added extensions in their same thing Chrome extensions from google crumbs on extension store as well will work just when you go there you have to give. The browser petition said download. Those extensions that's pretty cool. Okay security in mind you know kind of like how would be an android if you tried to side loading that gotcha from a different source right. Okay yeah So what does it work because hey this is still in development. This is i would say obey the bill. Okay so i can't remember. They considered this alpha or beta. I mean they release things that are bad all the time and yeah 'specially microsoft things in general like video games a lot of times. Release something like the first like three or four days like it doesn't play. Well here's a here's a little patch for you guys yes So signing in and sink into the cloud with this browser like you would go for. Chrome doesn't work right now. They give you a message. Saying doesn't that's going to be in there eventually. But they just don't have that ready for lennox at this time gotcha As far as sites. I go to the only site i've had any big problems with right off. The top has been cbs. All access. and i should try netflix's as well we can give that a try just the little bits. He can't watch star trek on their No i had to switch to google chrome in order to watch star trek unfortunately so. Cbs all access. It does not work for me. Let's give that flex try okay. Because i don't think i've tried it..
Microsoft Edge for Linux Discussion
"So this past month. I've been using the microsoft edge. Web browser own lennox That's an Development actually part of the microsoft insider program and As you know microsoft edge is what comes with windows and lennox my primary operating system. Mx lennox sabih specific So i never use edge myself. I'm a. I'm a guy right. But i do know that edge came out not too long ago from microsoft's that's been out for a while but they recently rewrote it of course Edge and internet explorer have a reputation of being the browser that used to download google chrome. Yes yes so but yeah. Edge recently switched to the chromium engine or the blink engine which is what chrome and chromium years. Yes so they decided to work on a lennox version of the browser k. Yeah now for Years of before satya nadella took over as ceo Microsoft had a history of attacking olympics and open source software and The bottom line would you expect. Yeah i know right. But i think sought adela has learned to use lennox to his advantage but many lennox users. What fine using microsoft edge. A bit blasphemous. Alan is there that much hatred for the for microsoft. Oh oh yeah and the lennox community. There's a lot of hatred for microsoft Some people in the lennox community are accepting microsoft. A bit more these days. Yeah and we'll get into that but Microsoft under like steve palmer specially somewhat under bill gates. But i don't know if it was that bad but the bomber years Gosh bomber hated open source software really. yes Yeah and and the source. People like microsoft. Either you know they. They were everything that stood against open source software. You know i mean you got to fundamental differences in values. You have microsoft which is proprietary closed source software. You don't get to the source code. It's up now. They do have some open source software. We'll get to them a little bit and then of course a lot of lennox users they're open source activists pretty much they wanna see as much open source software out there as possible. So so yeah. They'd think that using a microsoft product on a lennox distribution as blasphemous even though there are microsoft products on now like vs code and some others all mentioned that So under site in the del la off microsoft has embraced one x a bit more. Now yes lenox does cut into their bottom line of it but microsoft has learned how to use lennox of for their bottom lines. Microsoft has released. Vs code which is available for winnick's And it's up source

Update Alert: Critical 0-day in Chrome
"Speaking of being challenged. The hacker news summed this up by writing attention readers in. You are using Google Chrome Browser on your windows Mac or Lennox computers you need to update your web browsing software immediately to the latest version Google released earlier today, and this was last week. So you know. Even, though that was last Tuesday even my own always sort of sluggish chrome had already updated but. This one just you our listeners may just want to make sure that they're now running eighty-six dot zero, dot forty, two, forty, dot one, one one. However, there's much more to last week's emergency update than what drove it, but we'll start with that. So last Tuesday's released closed five vulnerabilities. Four were rated high severity one was medium and one of those four high severity vulnerabilities was what we're talking about was a zero day that was seen exploited in the wild by being exploited by attackers who are using it to hijack targeted computers so You know that nasty one it was numbered CV e twenty, twenty, fifteen, nine, ninety, nine and what's significant is that it's a heap buffer overflow in free type, which is the widely used open source font rendering library, which is part of chrome but many other things. Various bounty payouts were or will be made for the other four vulnerabilities, but this biggie was discovered in house by Google's project zero researcher Sir J Glazunov. Even. So even though it was found in house, it was subjected to an accelerated seven day public disclosure released deadline because the flaw was under active exploitation and that's the project zero guidelines. You know you get. You get thirty days for things that like, yeah. You gotta gotTa get these things fixed but if it's if it's being used if it is a zero day, you get a week. As it happens, this only took one day for Google to begin pushing the update which they did on the twentieth they found out there was discovered on the nineteenth they had. They were pushing the fixed one day later, which is interesting because it wasn't even really their problem it was in the free type library not in chrome. Sir J immediately. Notified the free type developers who also developed an emergency patch to address the issue. And had it available the next day on October Twentieth And so that's free type two point one, zero, point four. This is significant because free type is everywhere. Without, revealing details of the vulnerability Ben Hawks who is project Zeros technical lead warned via twitter there while the team has only spotted an exploit targeting chrome users. It's absolutely possible that other projects that use any earlier versions of the free type, library and there will be roughly a gazillion might also be vulnerable and are advised to deploy the fix included with free type version two, point one, zero, point four, he tweeted while we only saw an exploit for chrome other users. A free type should adopt the fixed discussed here, and then I've there's he provided a Lincoln tweet I've got the link here in the show notes. And it is part of the stable release of free type again, two point one, zero, point four. So what we do know thanks to what Sir J has shared is that the vulnerability exists in free types function load s bit PNG. So it's load underscore S B it underscore PNG which processes P. Images embedded into Fox. It can be exploited by attackers to execute arbitrary code just by using specially crafted fonts with embedded PNG images, which out to be something that free type supports so in no not just curbed lifts, but you could embed images so and since web fonts can be specified by a web page, and since the browser will go download the font and then render glimpse from those fonts turning a theoretical free type flaw into an active exploit would not be difficult

Linux: Benefits of Open Source Operating Systems
"As with all open source software the the basic source code used to create is not proprietary, is not kept secret, but is open to all, and if you have you know, depends on the level of skill you have, but if you're a coder, you can modify it.

"Hello, and welcome. To the July six twenty twenty episode of Joe is totally Tech. This is Joey Cable I. Hope you're all doing well so first of all. We have a major. This will be the last episode hosted own. ANCHOR DOT FM. We are actually going to switch to Red Circle for future podcasts hosting now. I'm not sure how that's going to affect the distribution of the podcast to places like spotify, an apple podcast, and some of the other places that anchor has distributed to, but I'm hoping things will go fairly seamlessly flawlessly at Cetera. Keep up to date on jellies, totally tech DOT com. You should be able to get the latest episodes once we move everything over. Anchor in some circles has had a bad reputation apparently for Foun-. I've absolutely loved anchor so far. It's been a great service I think the main thing people are worried about is that you have to give anchor permission to distribute to the other podcasts services like apple podcast? Google podcasts spotify et Cetera and that's something that you'd have to deal with any way if you're giving another entity ability to do that, you have to give them permission to do that. And there have been some rumors on the Internet that says anchor on your podcast. No, they make it very clear in the terms of starburst. You own your podcast now. They have sub rights with ad that you produce if you produce an ad for anchor. But, other than that you on the podcast, so that's not really why we're switching from anchor. You can have a good or bad opinions about it. I understand now. There is something to be said about it being free There's a saying that when you're not paying for a product and it's free. You are the product. I'm sure there's something to that with anchor. I'm not sure exactly where what data they collect the collect any. I don't know. I know with Red Star Call. They have an ad system now. Red Circles also free. But we pay for by then, take it. A certain percentages of the AD revenue subscription revenue will be able to do some episodes behind a paywall if we want to. I haven't decided what if anything I want to do with that. They get a cut of that, too. That's how it's paid for. So if he has a question about that. That's it. You know I'm mainly interested in red circles cross promotion. because. That's going to be a great way to grow the podcast listener base, and I've been really trying the past few weeks to gain more or less nurse, according to anchor. It's going down a little bit. I'm not sure why. I hope to see that. Go back up. I also questioned some of anchor stats if I'm to be honest, because saying that the majority of people are listening, and France and I don't speak French. And I don't know anyone in France that I've ever promoted the website too so. And I think I've Betcha quite a few times on the podcast now, so there's that. Finally we've launched the Joey's totally tech community at Joey's totally tech dot com slash community. That's a forum where you can ask your question, so he'd have that now. Unfortunately, we won't have the anchor APP for going to be switching to Red Circle, but you could ask in the form. You can still ask Facebook Messenger, and you'll probably notice the website. I added the law facebook Becerra widget type thing as well. You could ask right in there. Your Tech questions or comments on the podcasts et Cetera, you know it's GonNa be awesome. So thank you for listening and now onto the main content of today's episode. Which is why I like Lennox so much..

"linux" Discussed on The CyberWire
"Updates we accept to make sure that the devices are not being compromised in some way and that's where the signing comes into play exactly so again With the ability for these devices to be updated sort of on the fly what opportunities to that open up in terms of bad actors taking advantage of this capability within the machine it varies a lot from device to device as to what capabilities you can game one way to think of. It is if I'm a militias actor and I can replace the firm awareness device the simplest cases to emulate the existing device so for example if I'm compromising from where track pad because it's a track pad I can easily emulate the behavior of attract bet I can essentially have the firmware move the mouse cursor all on its own without your finger actually touching the track pat and he might say well. What good does that do you? Can you know move it around and make it annoyance? Well you can also get a bit more complicated and by complicated sophisticated. I guess in this case right. It's kind of go hand in hand here. But if I can move the mouse cursor around I can use that same mechanism to interact with the host system to emulate other aspects. That advice and I can do so in a very rapid fashion so I can do things like move the mouse cursor to the bottom left corner the screen where I know the start button. Noise is and because I know where that is. Now I can you know. Click and work through the start menu in a very fast fashion. I can also look at what how the device is connected to the host system in the case of a lot of track pads or mice or other pointing human interface type devices. They use what's called a hid interface or human interface device and that is used for both keyboard and mice. Well if the track pad already acts as a hid device I can perhaps emulate not only a mouse or track pad. But also emily a keyboard at the same time. So now I have the capability of moving the mouse pointer and typing which then opens the case of well if I could arbitrarily type in things and moves the mouse pointer around. Then what can I do with that? I can start up and run. Various Commands Now what about other bits of hardware within the system and I I mean I can imagine things like your your ethernet interface or your Wifi. That would be an attractive target. Yeah this is why we started surveying the different types of devices and in fact one of our examples is a WIFI adapter. In this case the Wifi adapters starts up with sort of a minimalistic firmware or baseline firmware. And then the device driver from windows actually is responsible for loading firmware once the operating system has started up it updates the firmware to to match the device driver. But this means that now I have potential control of the actual network interface. So now I can be in the data path of every of traffic going in and out of your computer now as you mentioned This sort of vulnerability has been known for several years now. have manufacturers been adapting to this or are you seeing more and more examples of them signing the firmware? It depends on the space Certainly when you look at laptops and systems that are designed for use in sort of enterprise businesses. There's more effort put into that situation. You'll see signing apply to the main system firmware and you'll see things like boot guard and BIOS card being rolled out by Intel and picked up by the manufacturers. But when you move to the peripheral components like track pads etc if you look at how systems are are designed and built by the manufacturer. The track PAT is not something that the manufacturer of your laptop builds themselves. They contract that out front. You know they purchase a pre-built module from someone where they contract that out and so those other suppliers often are using that same design to multiple of their customers which means that multiple APPs in the market are going to have the same core component. It may look slightly different but it's ultimately running very similar or the same. Firmware and those suppliers are the ones that are most concerning and what we found where the least advancement had been made in terms of printing protections in further firmware. So now we have things like a track pad or A WIFI adapter that is used in a variety of devices from a variety of manufacturers. That all have the same flaw in them and when I go to each of those manufacturers say by the way your laptop contains this device that has this problem. They have to go work with that supplier to actually develop fix now. This relationship is indirect relationship between the end user who cares about security and the supplier who actually manufacturers that component of the system has to pass through this intermediary and and there's just a whole bunch of business dynamics that come into play as to are the computer manufacturers specifying that signed firm orders requirement for these devices us and what we find is that in some cases they have been but it has to actually be a majority of the computer manufacturers requesting that for a supplier to really invest in. And do the work to do it properly. Well take us through some of the specific examples here from your research. What are some of the devices that you all explored? We've talked a lot about the track patent and track point. Firmware is so that that was certainly a case where we looked at. And we're able to verify that. In fact you you could modify the firmware and and the device would still loaded properly. Another case was actually the built in web camera used in a variety of HP CONSUMER LEVEL LAPTOPS. And so in this case. I personally looked in that firmware and saw that there were descriptors like strings that show up you know descriptive text about the device so I modified just to see what would happen and sure enough. The device accepted it and it would show up in device manager With the altered text. So you know this is another case. Where a device that's built right into the system can easily be modified. We've also talked about the WIFI. Adapter where you know. We were able to verify the same thing. One interesting aspects of that mechanism where the device driver is responsible for loading the firmware. Is that the device driver itself is signed and we we talk about this in detail. That windows has a signing mechanism and verifies the device driver before it loads it. But when the device driver then goes to load the firmware. It's the responsibility of the device driver. Author which is usually that vendor to actually produce the correct checks windows does not help you in this way and so there's this belief that oh well the device driver was signed and so therefore everything is okay. That's not necessarily true. And we get into some of the details of how you can check individual Device drivers for this fight ultimately. It means you can tamper with the firmware. Even though windows says yes it's using assigned device driver because the firmware is still modified and probably the most interesting case that we looked at was actually in a network chipset. That's used a Ethernet chipset that's used commonly and servers and why this was particularly interesting is the servers often have a separate management processor called. A. B. M. C. That lets you interact with the system and do things like turn the power on an offer reset the system. Control the keyboard and mouse and this is really useful for. It administrative functionality. But it's usually treated as a separate security domain from the computer that that it controls so the idea is that I have a server. That's wracked in a data center. Somewhere the people that are using that system who are responsible for maintaining the operating system and applications on that system are one set of security controls. They control the operating system and everything below that the BMC is then controlled by your it staff to take care of the system if something were to break such that. It wasn't booting anymore or or things of that. Nature due to the way that these systems are implemented the network traffic from both the EMC and the the main operating system come together inside of the network interface chip and it turned out that the way that this was implemented meant that the firmware was actually responsible for enforcing that separation of privileges. So once we're able to replace the former with our own from where we could actually snoop on the management traffic from the operating system. And that shouldn't actually be possible. And in fact it violates that security boundary and opens up a lot of potential for doing much more indepth attacks..
The Best Linux Distributions
"See. There's some question in which I think is pretty easy. We can answer very quickly is if someone's trying to get started using Lennox in one is to pick a lennox distribution they're looking for recommendations but I'll also say what are you currently use all right so recommendations for links destroys than what we currently. I'm so I'm currently running Ubuntu on on On my computers at home but at work we use FIDORA. And I think actually you can use a bunch of you at work but And we have this thing called chef and chef goes in automatically sets up. A bunch of things distributes software. It's like a workflow manager richer for it and our chef is designed for Fidora. So so I'm running Fidora at work done to you at home And that's that's what I'm that's what I'm running as far as like which destroyed recommend I have you know. Tried all almost all of them are a lot of them at various points in time I think you know Jen to is fun but it's it's good if you're learning but I wouldn't use that as a production system just requires too much maintenance I'm I'm a big fan of abundance. Which is is pretty clean it kind of gets the job done it's built on? WGN's it's pretty stable. What about you so I've mostly also used to and I'm not nerdy about Lennick so for me? I most distributions that are fairly popular uncle again until Mostly the popular ones. Because they're easiest to find help for if you stay aside from any of the more esoteric ones you really WanNa get into For the most they're kind of equivalent. I try not to over embellish my systems so that I can move easily between them so I mostly use mostly because easiest to find answers out doc for I I know there's a number of interesting developments related to Lennox distributions which are better containerization In progress that's been seen. Gene is part of that. I think that's pretty interesting via I. Don't have a lot of experience outside of I guess I'd use WN stuff before an announcement into So I don't don't have if you're never used it before. I don't know what would be like a good. I like installing on something and try it I always recommend people put in in a VM. And just use it and then you can use it from within. Whatever you're using windows or MAC or if you're on I guess a OSX computer or MAC OS computer? You can pretty much. It's not technically Lennox but you can pretty much treat it like it is and learn a lot of it. Yup Yup also so like dockers awesome and vagrant is also. Both of those are Super Super Lightweight ways to get a lennox it systems could run docker and just do things like docker run Ubuntu Coal and latest and just that one line we'll we'll give you a a bash. Prompt New Bundu. And you can run that regardless of whatever unless you're in and if you like delete the entire hard drive or something it's fine because this is just a docker image. Yeah but that's not graphical. So you're really going to have to get your hands dirty

Microsoft will ship a full Linux kernel in Windows 10
"Has been trying to developers and one of the ways they did it was with something called L S W the link subsystem for windows, which allowed us an emulator though, wasn't really Lennox. It allowed you to run Lennox binary on windows in in a way that really honestly was not ideal. But it was make developers feel better because they have their tools, but there were some real performance significant performance issues. And I mean, I I really gave it the benefit of that. I put on a very fast computer, really tried and even with the most recent version of L S w was small file handling was so slow that you could just watch, you know, watch the grass grow while you were loading files or compiling things all the things developers want to do which is process small files. So I think Microsoft, no, they I asked Christina Warren about this a couple of weeks ago in the show. She said, yeah, we know we know it's. Problem. And so their decision. She must have known this at the time. She's Ray cagey decision was why do why is in windows. So it's a special version Lennox Colonel at Microsoft, it's actually fairly old version the links kernel that Microsoft's going to modify to fit well within windows. I'm gonna go out on a limb. I think. Build twenty twenty-five. My Christmas is just going to say just say, and now windows is Lennox.
Jack Dorsey, Shoshana Zubov And Harvard Business School discussed on Recode Decode
"In the red chair is Shoshana Zubov, a professor mirada of Harvard Business School who's written several books about technology and economics. Her most recent book is called the age of surveillance capitalism. The fight for a human future at the new frontier of power, that's a lot there. That's going on. So let's talk a little bit about your background. So people get a sense. This is getting a lot of attention your book. And especially I I've been using the word surveillance quite a lot especially about surveillance economies surveillance states and things like that a longtime issue in human history. But now, it's never more important than ever. So why don't we talk a little bit about how you got to writing this particular book and some things you've done in the past who left here a little bit of your background. Well, I think the impetus for this book, which has been a long time in the making seven years just to produce this book, but many years before that and the the ideas and development. The real driver. Here's the sense that Har hopes and dreams for the digital future. Our sense of an empowering and democratizing. Israel future was at the beginning, which it was at the beginning. And a sense that this dream was slipping away. And that the reasons why it was flipping away the causes of this shift were we're not really clear, not really well understood forces taking shape very much behind the scenes, and it's almost like we woke up and suddenly the internet was owned and operated by private capital under a kind of regime, a new economic logic. That really was not well understood. And so my motivation CARA has come from really wanting to spend the time to understand to name exactly what this economic logic is and how its own imperatives its own compulsions created a completely different trajectory toward the digital future. Something that we didn't buy into yet. We did. Expect and because it's so unprecedented. It is by its very nature difficult to perceive. Absolutely. And also typical control and I like the word compulsion. Because I think that's a really good way to put it. It's it's an emotional word. But it's not it's actually it has to do what it's doing. It has to do what it's doing it to machine that's got to move in a direction that it's moving and the people in it are not bad people. They're not bad actors, but they themselves now are caught up in an economic machine that sometimes they even don't understand very well, and where it's driving and what its imperatives are. And most important what the consequences of those are interesting. I just did an interview on Twitter with Jack Dorsey that was sort of a bit of a goat rodeo. But it was interesting because a lot of the questions like a for specifics, and he couldn't do them. And it was really fascinating people found that part the most fascinating besides the platform being. Terrible to try to conduct any kind of conversation on. But we let me get here for your background talk about some of the things you've done before this. And then I want to get into the term surveillance capitalism, which I think is a fantastic way to put it. Let me hear rectory of your career. What you you've started where to get to this kind of topic? Well, as far as my professional career I began studying the shift to the digital and nineteen seventy eight. So where are you going to care? Fantastic. But I'm actually quite old hats off. So I'll date myself. I'll come right out there and date myself. I mean, I I started in nineteen seventy eight interviewing office workers Linux type workers factory workers who were the first the front line of our workforce that was shifting to the digital medium.
