How is the collaborative, transparent open-source development model a superior vehicle for engineering flexible and effective protection against the vast majority of cyberattacks that are carried out via email? We explore this in today's newsletter, as well as offer other tips and best practices Linux users should implement to secure their email.

Linux malware is also a focus for us this week. The general consensus among experts is that Linux is a highly secure OS. So why is Linux malware on the rise, with number of new Linux malware variants reaching a record high in the first half of 2022, as nearly 1.7 million samples were discovered? Is Linux still a viable OS for security-conscious users? We provide some background on Linux malware and shed some light on these questions to help put this worrying trend into context.

To help you harness the full potential of container technology without compromising security, our Linux Container Security Primer is another helpful resource we share in today's newsletter that provides expert advice on how to navigate the complexities of container security and some specific security features you might not know.

Hope you enjoy!
