  • Senators Introduce Open Source Software Security Act

    09/24/2022 7:16:22 AM PDT · by Right Wing Vegan · 26 replies
    U.S. Senators Gary Peters (D-MI) and Rob Portman (R-OH), Chairman and Ranking Member of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, have introduced bipartisan legislation to help protect federal and critical infrastructure systems by strengthening the security of open source software. The legislation comes after a hearing convened by Peters and Portman on the Log4j incident earlier this year, and would direct the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to help ensure that open source software is used safely and securely by the federal government, critical infrastructure, and others. A vulnerability discovered in Log4j – which is widely used open...

    If you're using Google Chrome or a Chromium-based browser -- whether on MacOS, Windows or Linux -- it's time to check for a critical security update. On Friday, Google released a Chrome update to patch a significant vulnerability that is actively being exploited in ongoing cyberattacks. Google urged users on all operating systems to update Chrome as soon as possible. The security lapse involves a collection of back-end libraries called Mojo, which are used by Chromium-based browsers, including Opera, Brave and Microsoft Edge. The zero-day vulnerability is classified as high severity and has been labeled CVE-2022-307. Google's update patch fixes...

    If you use Google Chrome as an internet browser, beware: Your information could be compromised. Google issued an alert warning billions of Chrome users that the browser has been successfully targeted by hackers, and listed 30 security flaws, including seven deemed to have a “High” threat level. It is unclear who hacked the firm, and whether any users’ security was put at risk. Google said further hack details are currently being restricted by the company “until a majority of users are updated with a fix.”

  • Google Chrome 100 Trips Up Websites That Can't Count That High...Version 100 problems are rare but also affect Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge.

    Google on Tuesday released Chrome 100, an iteration of the popular browser that can trip up websites that weren't written to handle three-digit version numbers. It's a problem that, though rare, also affects people using Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge. The problem crops up because developers sometimes try to adapt their websites for particular browser versions. Browsers share their version number through a short text description called the user agent string, but website scripts sometimes extract just two of the three digits in the version number. Problems can include websites not working at all or showing a popup erroneously saying...
  • How To Save an Old Laptop by Installing Chrome OS Flex Google has released software that can turn any old laptop into a like-new Chromebook.

    Chrome OS isn’t just for Chromebooks now. It’s not pleasant seeing a once-beloved laptop (or desktop) computer slowly slide into obsolescence as it gets too old and tired to keep up with the demands of modern-day computing, but Google has now provided an option for these ailing machines in the form of Chrome OS Flex. Chrome OS Flex is the standard Chrome OS that runs on Chromebooks, in a form that you can install on computers that aren’t Chromebooks. The idea is that the lightweight operating system won’t weigh your old device down to the same extent as Windows or...

  • Google's New Chrome OS Flex Will Rescue Your Old PC or Mac...The successor to CloudReady is now in early access with a full rollout expected in the coming months.

    Google today announced a new operating system, Chrome OS Flex, a free-to-use, cloud-based OS built to convert old PCs or Macs into Chromebooks. The new OS was developed by Google a few years after acquiring Neverware—the makers of Cloudready—and was primarily made for schools and businesses with fleets of old PCs or Macs that have been bogged down after years of use. Google argues these systems could be revitalized by stripping out Windows or macOS and installing Chrome OS Flex, a lightweight operating system that can run on weaker hardware and remain stable for years due to its reliance on...

    The browser is no longer a thing that exists for you to navigate the internet. A while back, Google said that it was on board with the idea that cookies--the little pieces of software code that websites use to do all sorts of things like keeping you logged in, and letting an advertiser know when you've clicked on its ad and then made a purchase--were bad. At least, the third-party kind--the ones that track your activity across the internet. Those types of cookies would be blocked in Chrome by 2023. Except, because Google--like every advertising platform--uses cookies to know what...
  • Not just deprecated, but deleted: Google finally strips File Transfer Protocol code from Chrome browser (FTP is dead)

    The Register ^ | Oct 20, 2021 | Richard Speed
    The Chromium team has finally done it – File Transfer Protocol (FTP) support is not just deprecated, but stripped from the codebase in the latest stable build of the Chrome browser, version 95. It has been a while coming. A lack of support for encrypted connections in Chrome's FTP implementation, coupled with a general disinterest from the majority of the browser's users, and more capable third-party alternatives being available has meant that the code has moved from deprecated to gone entirely. Support for fetching document resources over FTP was stripped from Chrome 72, proxy support for FTP was removed in...

    There has long been a movement to ditch Google Chrome, but many people end up going back to the browser, simply because it functions well and many apps are optimised for it. But recent moves by Google—such as the delayed but widely believed to be privacy-infringing FLoC update—are pushing people to say it: Enough is enough, it’s time to quit Chrome. *** Firefox is the number one alternative if you want to ditch Chrome, and that’s because of its privacy ethos. Firefox is owned by Mozilla, a non-profit, so it doesn’t need to perform tracking to serve you ads. ***...

    I can't get into anything Google: mail, Youtube, translate, etc. I looked at the settings in chrome and it said that was blocked but I don't see how to unblock it. I don't think it's a chrome setting because it doesn't work on any browser. My default browser is Brave. I use Kaspersky for virus protection. Is this a firewall problem? A Windows 10 problem? It just started yesterday.
  • Microsoft announces retirement of Internet Explorer

    Microsoft said it is retiring Internet Explorer, the browser it created more than 25 years and which is now largely abandoned as people instead use competitors like Google's Chrome or Apple's Safari. "We are announcing that the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge," the company said in a blog post Wednesday, referring to its other browser. "Not only is Microsoft Edge a faster, more secure and more modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer, but it is also able to address a key concern: compatibility for older, legacy websites and applications," Microsoft said. People ribbed Internet...

  • DuckDuckGo can now block the Google Chrome tracking method, FLoC

    In an attempt to better track users and predict their search habits, Google Chrome has developed FLoC (Federated Learning of Cohorts). FLoC provides visibility into user data to any website that desires this information. In fact, FLoC places each user in an ID group to help websites recognize and target individuals. In response, the alternative search engine DuckDuckGo has come out with an extension for Chrome that can block FLoC tracking. Furthermore, users now have the option of using either the DuckDuckGo application or extension to entirely opt out of FLoC monitoring. Google first implemented FLoC in order to offer...

  • Vivaldi 3.6 is out with two-level tab stack

    RECOMMENDED: The Vivaldi browser team today released a new version of the world's most feature rich Chromium- based browser. Vivaldi 3.6 again exceeds users' expectations by adding more flexibility to the tab row. You can now enable a two-level tab stack that expands the tab group downward instead of taking up space in the tab row. There is a new option in Settings > Tabs. It is optional [but now enabled by default], and you can enable or disable it at any moment of time. Once you enabled it, create a new tab group (tab stack in Vivaldi's term). When...

    This rusty ol’ internet of ours sure has a lot to offer, but man, oh man, can it be annoying to use. From ad-infested websites to autoplaying videos and an endless array of pop-up provocations, it’s a wonder anyone makes it through the day without going completely berserk. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. With a little fine-tuning and some carefully considered additions, surfing the web can actually become—dare I say it—almost pleasant. All it takes is about 10 minutes of your time, and your desktop browser will be loaded up, tricked out, and ready to give you...
