Linux Ubuntu 10.04 Kernal Full of HolesNearly 40 vulnerabilities have been found to Linux Ubuntu. One of the most notable holes is an issue with the validation pathway between the Common Internet File System and the Internet Control Matrix Protocol. This allows attackers to send denial-of-service crafted packets. A problem in the Network File System v4 causes issues with write requests, allowing hackers to gain root privileges. Fortunately, most of the bugs require that the attacker have local access. Users can close the holes by upgrading the Ubuntu package.
Google Chrome Developers Say "No" to Hardware AccelerationUsers with out-of-date graphics cards will be more likely to experience crashes and slower loading speeds if Chrome adds hardware acceleration at this point. In their ongoing effort to build a blazing fast, standards-compliant browser, Google developers have chosen to take full advantage of modern hardware advancements. The addition of WebGL and GPU accelerated HTML5 video has created more crashes in systems using older graphics driver technology. With the exception of WebGL content, however, users with older systems shouldn't have too much trouble using Chrome's most basic features.
iTunes In the CloudNothing strikes terror into the heart of a music lover like a hard drive crash. Songs on Apple's iTunes site don't come cheap, and some users have thousands of dollars worth of music stored on their home computers. Currently, Apple will return all a user's lost music after one fatal crash. More than one hard drive failure, and you're out of luck. Apple executives are discussing the possibility of an iTunes cloud storage option. User's music files would be stored in the cloud instead of only on their host machine. Undoubtedly, the new service would come at a cost that has yet to be specified.
