  1. Imagine is an open source image compression utility for Windows, macOS,and Linux If you take hundreds of photos or screenshots, and save on them on your computer's hard drive, its gonna get full sooner or later. To avoid this, you can save the images to a cloud service, move it to an external storage device, or just delete the ones you don't need anymore. Sometimes you may want to keep a bunch of pictures because they are irreplaceable, but their file size could be really large, especially if they are in a very high resolution. Imagine can help you recover
  2. How to fix the Firefox 89 user interface A new interface design, called Proton, will launch in Firefox 89, scheduled for a release on June 1, 2021. Mozilla wants to modernize the user interface of the Firefox web browser with Proton. Firefox 89 ships with address bar, toolbar, tab and menu changes. One common denominator is that everything will be a big larger in the new interface. Proton will remove some options from Firefox, or hide them. The Compact density option won't be displayed anymore on the "customize" page of the browser if it has not been used in the past. W
  3. Imperium is a stylish dual pane file manager for Windows and Linux Many dual-pane file managers that we have reviewed are in some ways, a clone of Total Commander. That's not exactly a bad thing, but there are other file managers out there, e.g. the Terminal-based file manager LF or ExplorerXP, that may work as well for you. Imperium is a dual pane file manager, sans the command bar / function bar. Well, technically there are three panels if you include the sidebar, which is sort of the help file, but it has other uses. For now, toggle the sidebar by clicki
  4. Edge for Linux is now available in the Beta channel A Linux version of Microsoft's Chromium-based Edge browser has long been in the works, with the Redmond company first teasing it at Build 2019 and officially announcing it later that year. However, it wasn't until October of last year that the Dev channel of the Edge Insider program debuted on Linux. Over six months later, it's now time for the Beta channel to make its way to Linux users, Microsoft announced today. Since its Linux debut back in October, Edge has gained some new capabilities, including the
  5. Linux Kernel Bug Opens Door to Wider Cyberattacks The information-disclosure flaw allows KASLR bypass and the discovery of additional, unpatched vulnerabilities in ARM devices. An information-disclosure security vulnerability has been discovered in the Linux kernel, which can be exploited to expose information in the kernel stack memory of vulnerable devices. Specifically, the bug (CVE-2020-28588) exists in the /proc/pid/syscall functionality of 32-bit ARM devices running Linux, according to Cisco Talos, which discovered the vul

  7. Fedora 34 is ready for public consumption following beta The Fedora Project has announced the release of Fedora 34 following a little over a month of beta testing. Fedora 34 ships with the new GNOME 40 desktop which comes with a big overhaul of the GNOME interface compared to GNOME 3.38 (the previous version). Additionally, the default BTRFS file system comes with transparent compression enabled which should prolong the life of solid-state disks. Apart from the main Fedora Workstation (which is the version you’ll probably want), Fedora Server, Fedora IoT, a
  8. Linus Torvalds: Linux 5.12 is a small release but the next one is going to be bigger This latest update to the Linux kernel might be modest but includes some new features, and the next update is likely to be larger. Linus Torvalds announced the arrival of the Linux kernel 5.12 on Sunday, which he flagged as a small update – but one that will be followed by bigger changes in version 5.13. "Both the shortlog (appended) and the diffstat are absolutely tiny, and it's mainly just a random collection of small fixes in various areas," Torvalds noted. With Linux 5.1
  9. Linux bans University of Minnesota for sending buggy patches in the name of research Greg Kroah-Hartman, who is one of the head honchos of the Linux kernel development and maintenance team, has banned the University of Minnesota (UMN) from further contributing to the Linux Kernel. The University had apparently introduced questionable patches into the kernel of Linux. The UMN had worked on a research paper dubbed "On the Feasibility of Stealthily Introducing Vulnerabilities in Open-Source Software via Hypocrite Commits". Obviously, the "Open-Source
  10. Motrix is a cross-platform, open-source download manager for Windows, Linux and macOS Everyone has a favorite download manager. IDM has been my go-to choice for nearly a decade. But as an enthusiast, I test new ones from time-to-time. Motrix has been on my radar for a while, I gave it a fair shot. The program is cross-platform and open-source. Motrix has a dual-pane GUI and a sidebar, and the design is modern. The Tasks tab is the primary screen, it has three tabs of its own, for accessing ongoing, paused and completed downloads.

It has been significantly rewritten and improves the overall experience of the GNOME shell overview. According to Fedora, the new GNOM
  13. 15-year-old Linux kernel bugs let attackers gain root privileges Three vulnerabilities found in the iSCSI subsystem of the Linux kernel could allow local attackers with basic user privileges to gain root privileges on unpatched Linux systems. These security bugs can only be exploited locally, which means that potential attackers will have to gain access to vulnerable devices by exploiting another vulnerability or using an alternative attack vector. The 15-year old Linux kernel bugs GRIMM researchers discovered the bugs 15 years after they were intr

  16. Swifty is an open source and offline password manager for Windows, MacOS and Linux Many people are switching from LastPass, and looking for suitable alternatives.

Swifty is an open source and offline password manager for Windows, MacOS and Linux. The best part about offline password managers is that you can start using them right away, without registering for an account.
  17. Torvalds warns the world: Don’t use the Linux 5.12-rc1 kernel Please, please don't use cowboy kernels in production—especially not this one! Enlarge / Penguins aren't all equally trustworthy. In a message to the Linux Kernel Mailing List yesterday, founding developer Linus Torvalds warned the world not to use the 5.12-rc1 kernel in his public git tree. Hey peeps - some of you may have already noticed that in my public git tree, the "v5.12-rc1" tag has magically been renamed to "v5.12-rc1-dontuse". It's still the same object, it still says "v5.12-r

  20. Google funds Linux maintainers to boost Linux kernel security Together with the Linux Foundation, Google announced today that they would fund two Linux kernel developers' efforts as full-time maintainers exclusively focused on improving Linux security. "While there are thousands of Linux kernel developers, all of whom take security into consideration as the due course of their work, this contribution from Google to underwrite two full-time Linux security maintainers signals the importance of security in the ongoing sustainability of open-source softw
  21. DuckStation is an excellent PlayStation 1 emulator for Windows, Linux, macOS and Android The PlayStation 1, Nintendo SNES, GBA, and DS are my favorite consoles of all-time because they have tons of RPGs. I remember playing WWF/WCW games, and many JRPGs on my old Windows 98 computer using ePSXe back in the 2000s. Emulation has come a long way since then; there have been many advancements, improvements and of course new emulators. DuckStation is a PSX emulator and a brilliant one at that. It comes with a QT-based GUI version and a no-GUI version.

  25. Linux malware uses open-source tool to evade detection Image: Moritz Kindler AT&T Alien Labs security researchers have discovered that the TeamTNT cybercrime group upgraded their Linux crypto-mining with open-source detection evasion capabilities. TeamTNT is mostly known for targeting and compromising Internet-exposed Docker instances for unauthorized Monero (XMR) mining.
