New Multiple vulnerabilities in OpenSSL.

Image
Connectikpeople.co recalls that OpenSSL has released updates addressing multiple vulnerabilities, one of which allows a remote attacker to downgrade vulnerable TLS connections to 512-bit export-grade cryptography; an attack known as Logjam (CVE-2015-4000). Exploitation of some of these vulnerabilities could allow the attacker to read and modify data passed over the connection. Updates available include: OpenSSL 1.0.2b for 1.0.2 usersOpenSSL 1.0.1n for 1.0.1 usersOpenSSL 1.0.0s for 1.0.0d (and below) usersOpenSSL 0.9.8zg for 0.9.8r (and below) usersConnectikpeople.co encourages users and administrators to review the OpenSSL Security Advisory and apply the necessary updates.

A free-to-use R&D cloud service to accelerate application development.

Due to their flexibility, agility, seamless, security, productivity, performance and more, they provide, open source technologies, solutions and standards are the game changer in our digital age. 
So, Connectikpeople.co salutes the availability of SuperVessel, an open access cloud service for global developers who want to participate in the OpenPOWER ecosystem. 
For those who unfamiliar, Connectikpeople.co recalls that, the OpenPOWER Foundation is a collaboration of technologists encouraging the adoption of an open server architecture for computer data centers. 
Henceforth, with SuperVessel users can access open source software, build and test applications and share experiences and best practices. The labs include Big Data, Internet of Things, acceleration and virtualization on POWER. 
For a global fit and hit , feel free to submit your app or technology.

The Adoption of SDN in the Cloud can help us understand that:

Image
In our digital age, the Software-define Network (SDN) provides the visibility henceforth indispensable for our streamlined digital experiences. Therefore, we can understand that, the nature of networking changes by focusing inter alia on openness and the disaggregation of hardware and software. 
Networking is focusing on: scalable, highly available, distributed SDN controller architecture designed for visibility, security and dramatic operational simplification.
Linux-based Development Operations (DevOps) tools to empower the modern cloud are indispensable in this environment where, Cloud providers need security, monitoring and virtualization built in at the architectural level to enable them to compete with hyperscale cloud providers.
Convergence of compute, network, storage and virtualization with an open, programmable approach, is also at the core of stakes when it comes to the Adoption of SDN in the Cloud.

Simplify the Design of Cross-Platform Applications, also, means=

The holistic time-to-market is a game-changer in our digital age. That effective reality required that; simplify the Design of Cross-Platform Applications, also, means=
Develop a single application that functions on all operating systems (iOS, Android, Windows…) as well as all on types of device (computers, smartphones and tablets),
Deliver fully native, high performance applications in an accelerated timeline to clients all over the world,
Reduce costs and accelerate time-to-market,Enhance the user experience: The user can begin a task on their computer in Windows, continue working on it using their tablet in iOS and finish on an Android mobile device,Ensure the sustainability and accessibility of the applications, is also critical like providing business applications without having to consider the range of devices used in the company and any future developments that may be needed.

Cisco IOS XR Denial-of-Service Vulnerability and Ubuntu Security Notices.

Image
Connectikpeople.co recalls that, Cisco has identified a vulnerability that could allow an unauthenticated remote attacker to cause a denial-of-service condition. 
The vulnerability is due to improper processing of malformed IPv6 packets carrying extension headers. A Cisco Carrier Routing System 3 (CRS-3) running a version of Cisco IOS XR software prior to 4.2.1 is affected by this vulnerability.
Users and administrators are encouraged to review the Cisco Security Advisory and apply the necessary updates.
Ubuntu has released 10 security updates to address multiple vulnerabilities affecting Ubuntu 15.04, 14.10, 14.04 LTS, and 12.04 LTS.  Exploitation of one of these vulnerabilities may allow a remote attacker to take control of the affected system.

Therefore, Connectikpeople.co encourages users and administrators to review Ubuntu Security Notices USN-2629-1USN-2630-1, USN-2631-1, USN-2632-1, USN-2633-1, USN-2634-1, USN-2635-1, USN-2636-1, USN-2637-1, and USN-2638-1 and apply the necessar…
