Linux device management is pivotal in contemporary managed service providers' (MSPs) core operations. With a growing reliance on Linux systems within organizations, adeptly administering these devices is a defining factor for MSPs. In the rapidly evolving tech landscape, the surge in Linux adoption is driving MSPs to deliver efficient Linux device management services that align with the distinct needs of their clients.
Peer-to-peer (P2P) torrenting users face many risks, ranging from downloading malware to inadvertently downloading unauthorized content. Your computer may get infected with viruses, your ISP may limit your connection, or you may face penalties.
At last count, nearly half of all small businesses used cloud-based hosting and infrastructure services. SMBs are doing so because it allows them to use enterprise-grade technology at affordable prices. However, many small business owners and decision-makers don't fully appreciate the level of risk that comes with their cloud footprint. And that's a blind spot that can have significant bottom-line consequences.
Recently, the media has been covering many Internet break-ins, their reporters spinning tales of clever bandits who magically gain access to machines with a simple keystroke. In real life, however, it is rarely that simple. Cracking into a computer system requires planning. A cracker has to find a target machine, and then find out what ports the machine is listening on before a system can be compromised.
If your Linux system were a busy airport, the GNU C Library (glibc) would be the control tower that could give malicious actors free rein on your systems, like a pilot who hijacked an airplane. Recently, a severe vulnerability dubbed "Looney Tunables" (CVE-2023-4911) was found in this integral part of most Linux systems that provides basic system functions like file I/O, network, and memory access.
With cyber threats becoming alarmingly sophisticated, IT professionals constantly struggle to keep digital assets safe. It's not just about reacting to threats anymore; it's about building a security system that’s as dynamic and adaptable as the threats themselves. Linux, with its open-source, transparent framework, offers precisely that.
It was discovered that a sequence of processor instructions for some Intel processors leads to unexpected behavior that could allow an authenticated local user to escalate privileges (CVE-2023-23583). This bug, dubbed "Reptar," could expose sensitive information or cause system crashes, resulting in a denial of service.
Data security is critical for running your business smoothly and earning customers’ trust. People provide information when purchasing products at e-commerce sites, signing up for services, giving feedback about experiences, and much more. However, many are becoming less open to sharing their data with companies unless they feel confident employees there will handle it responsibly.
Several critical vulnerabilities were found in the popular Squid caching proxy, including request/response smuggling in HTTP/1.1 and ICAP (CVE-2023-46846), denial of service in HTTP Digest Authentication (CVE-2023-46847), and denial of service in FTP (CVE-2023-46848).
Google is one of the most significant technology search engines in the world and an invaluable tool for users seeking to find information and answers to questions that they have efficiently. But now, Google has decided that it is time to test a new feature in its widely used Chrome browser by hiding IP addresses. By sending these connections from the browser through a proxy server first, the remote website only sees the IP address of the proxy server, not the device (phone, tablet, desktop, etc) from which the browser is being run.
Linux, renowned for its robust security features and flexibility, is a popular choice among enterprises for carrying out critical functions and tasks. In the evolving landscape of cybersecurity, managing a Linux environment requires a comprehensive approach encompassing security measures and effective compliance management.
With digitization conquering businesses, maintaining data and network security health standards and providing the best experience to clients and end users is essential. Today's networks are, for the most part, comprised of Linux and Windows-based environments. Businesses with data centers often prefer Linux networks, as they are good at scalability, security, customizations, consistency, and flexibility.
Docker containers provide a convenient way to deploy data management software. However, securing containers running sensitive data workloads requires careful configuration. Docker's lightweight container technology has become popular in the realm of current data security trends. It runs all applications, including databases, data pipelines, analytics tools, and other data management software.
If you don't have any experience designing, developing, or managing a website, you might have some misconceptions about how much effort and time it takes to build one. Using modern open-source website builders and free online resources, even total amateurs can launch professional-looking and secure websites. How long does this process take? And is it worth it?
Network applications following the client-server model play a significant role in facilitating communication between various devices in the computer networking field of a company. Network programming refers to the coding taking place behind the scenes of this programming.
