Fedora 25 released!

Each edition is built from a common set of base packages, which form the foundation of the Fedora operating system. As with all new versions of Fedora, Fedora 25 provides many bug fixes and tweaks to these underlying components, as well as new and enhanced packages, including:

  • Docker 1.12 for building and running containerized applications
  • Node.js 6.9.1, the latest version of the popular server-side JavaScript engine
  • Support for Rust, a faster and more stable system programming language
  • Multiple Python versions — 2.6, 2.7, 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5 — to help run test suites across several Python configurations, as well as PyPy, PyPy3, and Jython

  • Upgrading Fedora 24 to Fedora 25

Dan Primack reports that it’s north of__ $600 million.__We’ve also asked for a comment from Oracle about Dyn’s cyberattack, and whether the wheels were set in motion for this deal before or after the Mirai botnet took down a series of sites in October. Our guess is that it was likely before.

Finally, Our Own OS – Oh Yes! | Nota Bene: Eugene Kaspersky’s Official Blog

So, I’m hoping it’s obvious by now how protecting the IoT and, of course, critical infrastructure (industry, transport, telecoms, etc.) from IT threats is simply _mandatory. _I also hope it’s clear that it’s better — no matter how difficult — to build IoT/infrastructure devices from the very beginning in such a way that hacking them is practically impossible. Indeed, that is a fundamental goal with Kaspersky OS.
