Linux AIO Linux Mint

We are pleased to announce the release of Linux AIO Linux Mint 18 in our Primary branch.

It contains 32bit and 64bit version of ISOs, with official, untouched Linux Mint Cinnamon, KDE, MATE and Xfce 18 releases.

Download links are in Download section of website.

Due to limitations on SourceForge servers (max 5GB file can be uploaded) we needed to split ISO files. This is done by archiving ISO with .7z archiver in two parts. You need to download both parts and then to extract them. For extracting these files all you need is to have .7z archiver installed on your computer.

Always check downloaded ISO file with MD5.

Australian Police has issued an alert regarding unknown individuals leaving unmarked USB thumb drives inside random people's letterboxes.

The warning, which was published on the website of the Victoria Police, one of Australia's state police departments, warns that upon inserting these USB drives inside their computers, "victims have experienced fraudulent media streaming service offers, as well as other serious issues."

Pakenham residents targeted in recent wave of incidents

According to the police alert, these attacks have currently taken place only in the small and quiet town of Pakenham, 56 km south-east from Melbourne and a population that just surpassed 30,000.

While some crook has found a unique way of distributing banking trojans or who knows what malware, the problem of people blindly plugging USB drives into their computers is not a new one.

Ned Pyle, Principal Program Manager in the Microsoft Windows Server team, has made a solid case for the retirement of the SMBv1 protocol from active duty and is pleading with organizations to stop using it.

The Server Message Block protocol provides shared access to files, printers, and serial ports and miscellaneous communications between nodes on a network. Like most protocols these days, it has gone through a series of iterations and is currently at version 3.1.1.

Pyle: Stop using SMB1. For your children. For your children’s children.

Pyle, the Microsoft engineer tasked with SMB maintenance, has gone on an epic rant on the Microsoft blogs, and with good arguments, if we can say so ourselves, hinting that anyone still deploying the protocol is just looking for trouble.

What caused this rant? It was a recent Microsoft security bulletin issued last week, MS16-114, which addressed denial... (read more)

A security flaw patched on July 13 in core modules built into the Drupal CMS are being exploited in live attacks, according to Johannes Ullrich of the SANS Internet Storm Center.

Ullrich says that in the last two months, honeypot servers installed around the Internet, have started catching scans that probe if Drupal installations are running older versions of a specific module, and are trying to exploit the disclosed flaws.

Attackers scan for older versions of the RESTWS Drupal module

The issues they scan for are in RESTful Web Services (RESTWS) module packed with Drupal 7.x installations. According to an advisory released by the Drupal team, all versions of this module before 7.x-2.6 and 7.x-1.7 (the patched versions), allow an attacker to execute commands on the underlying web server by accessing a URL with special parameters.

This URLs with a non-standard format is what Ullrich has been catchin... (read more)
