Dirty COW was Livepatched in Ubuntu within Hours of Publication

Coincidentally, just before the vulnerability was published, we released the Canonical Livepatch Service for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. The thousands of users who enabled canonical-livepatch on their Ubuntu 16.04 LTS systems with those first few hours received and applied the fix to Dirty COW, automatically, in the background, and without rebooting!

New Legislation to Tackle Pirate Kodi Box Sellers Rejected

Modified Kodi and other IPTV devices allow users to access valuable content for free.

DTrace for Linux 2016

Message: I’ve heard you talk about the new super key stickers for linux. When can we buy these from JB, I would love to get some!

  • Subject: CRM Review

Message: This was a great segment. I would like to see more business solution type segments on LAS or even a more business centric show for Noah. As a person that works primarily in a Windows environment, I like to see open source solutions that are business ready so that I can pitch them at work. The only way we will go from a Microsoft shop to a Linux shop is by finding open source applications that can meet the needs of the business. We will be looking to replace our CRM next year so I’ll be setting up a Zurmo server for people to try.
