Looks like more push towards Silverstripe in government. I believe this
relates to the common web platform which is an Internal Affairs project? Im

nows a good time to get invested in silverstripe experience?
I'm heading down for the hackathon and conf, probably fly in Friday return

Linux has been the first to offer a complete implementation of RFC5961
in its TCP/IP stack, designed to prevent certain kinds of hacking
attacks. Now it turns out there’s a flaw in the spec itself, which
creates its own vulnerability
The problematic RFC 5961 has not yet been fully implemented in
Windows or Mac OS X, so those operating systems aren't believed to
be vulnerable. By contrast, the Linux operating system kernel,
starting with version 3.6 introduced in 2012, has added a largely
complete set of functions implementing the standard. Linux kernel
maintainers released a fix with version 4.7 almost three weeks ago,
but the patch has not yet been applied to most mainstream

"Four major security holes in the Qualcomm chips which power modern
Android devices have left as many as 900 million users vulnerable to a
range of attacks.
According to Israel-based security firm Checkpoint, the flaws—dubbed
"Quadrooter"—found in the firmware which governs the chips, could
allow potential attackers to "trigger privilege escalations for the
purpose of gaining root access to a device" using malware which
wouldn't require special permissions, allowing it to pass under
suspicious users' radars."
