Linux admins and security practitioners, 

AI is here to stay and is transforming the landscape of both cybercrime and cybersecurity. As you might expect, cybercriminals haven’t taken long to exploit the immense opportunity AI has provided to craft effective attack campaigns easily and efficiently. Conversely, you can use open-source AI tools to fight against these threats and improve security in Linux environments. Today we show you how this can be done!

Please share this newsletter with your friends to help them gain critical Linux security insights. Is there a Linux security-related topic you want to cover for our audience? We welcome contributions from passionate, insightful community members like you! 

Other topics covered this week include:

Yours in Open Source,

Empowering Linux and Open-Source Security with AI: Strategies, Tools and Best Practices

10.FingerPrint Locks

It’s hard to think of a technology more impactful than Artificial Intelligence (AI). While it’s been around for a while, it’s only recently broken into the mainstream. Now that it has, it’s rewriting the playbook for much of the tech industry, especially open-source software (OSS). As exciting as this new technological age can seem, it’s not without downsides. AI is a tool, so whether its impact is good or bad depends on how people use it. As you might expect, cybercriminals haven’t taken long to take advantage of this immense opportunity. Conversely, you can use open-source AI tools to fight against these threats and improve security in Linux environments. Let's examine how this can be done!

How To Secure the Linux Kernel

2.Motherboard

With over 800 security bulletins for the Linux kernel alone in just the past few months, each being a potential security vulnerability, securing the kernel has never been a more pressing concern for Linux admins. Consider the kernel's central role in any Linux deployment, ensuring robust kernel security is essential in protecting your systems against attacks leading to malware infections, conversation hijacking, service disruption, and data theft, among other threats. Today, we share updated insights on the persistent threat of kernel vulnerabilities and offer mitigation strategies for protecting against them
