Schwere Sicherheitslücke im VLC Media Player
In der aktuellen Version 126.96.36.199 des beliebten Audio- und Videoplayers #VLC Media Player ermöglicht eine noch ungepatchte Sicherheitslücke die Ausführung von beliebigen Programmcodes auf den betroffenen Rechnern. Das Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) des BSI stuft das Risiko als hoch ein. http://blog.schockwellenreiter.de/2019/07/2019072201.html #Security
@thomas wenn ich mich auf Trashserver.net registrieren möchte, bekomme ich eine Fehlermeldung vom nginx: Bad Gateway.

One thing that is a bit annoying with the Mastodon @yunohost app is that after every upgrade, the instance is switched to public (open registrations) again. Not sure if this is related to the packaging, but it's a somehow a showstopper for single user instances (which is imho the best way to host a part of the fediverse besides small group instances).
Physical (de)centralization of XMPP servers – we took 1000+ XMPP servers and looked at their hosters:
– about 50% of these servers are hosted by only 7 companies in 3 countries
– logical decentralization obviously doesn't imply physical decentralization
– more than 50% of servers are hosted in Germany, followed by the USA (10%) and France (7%)
gPodder.net is looking for a new maintainer!
If nobody comes forward by 2020, it'll be forced to shut down. Please boost to spread the word.
Note that this is the podcast-sharing website: I'm not sure about the status of the app, but I think that's still doing fine.
Making good progress with the Installbox. Basic functionality already works on #Buster. Now I have to add a Webservice for faster image pull with syslinux and prepare everything for UEFI/SecureBoot. #Buster is the first release which fully supports this: https://notabug.org/MarcusMoeller/installbox #Debian #Automation
My hours at work have been cut, I will have to start freelancing again or try to get more higher tier Patreon sponsors if I want to keep working on Pixelfed this much.
If you know anyone looking for a full stack laravel developer, let me know!
