Host Net India, Indian based network services company has launched shared hosting plans targeted towards bloggers, forum communities, personal websites, and small businesses.
Employing Cloud Linux is one feature that helps shared hosting become more of a reliable resource vs using Linux without the ability to limit one site's resources should they get a sudden influx of traffic. Cloud Linux ensures that other customers on a single shared hosting server can reach their sites while the site that is receiving a large influx of traffic if it goes to a certain extent can be throttled to ensure others are not impacted. This is a good compromise between standard shared hosting and a Virtual Privat... [More]

As a security researcher, I regularly come across software vulnerabilities. Some can have a deep and lasting effect on the way customers and clients view the security of the organization and some can have a fairly minimal impact. However, when there are applications susceptible to a few basic types of attacks, I struggle to understand how these can continue to slip through each phase of development and into production. Frankly these types of vulnerabilities are simply irresponsible and dangerous to the end users.
There are a handful of vulnerabilities that fit into this group; cross-site scripting (XSS) being one of them – and we find them in just about every application we test. An X... [More]

The ripple effects of an August attack on the website kernel.org washed up on the Linux Foundation last week, forcing the group to take down its Web site and warn users that their account information may have been compromised.
A message posted on the Foundation's Web site, linux.com, over the weekend said the Linux Foundation online infrastructure, including Linux.com and LinuxFoundation.org and subdomains are down for maintenance following a breach discovered on September 8. The Foundation said breach was believed to be connected to the intrusion at kernel.org.
"We are in the process of restoring services in a secure manner as quickly as possible," the Foundation said. Users we... [More]

The Stuxnet worm may be the most famous piece of malicious software ever written. When it was first detected, a little over a year ago, the worm sounded a warning to nations around the world that critical infrastructure systems were potential targets of attack for foreign governments and cyber criminal organizations alike. But with the anniversary of the Stuxnet worm's discovery just past, the Department of Homeland Security admits that it is now reevaluating whether it makes sense to warn the public about all of the security failings of industrial control system (ICS) and SCADA software.
Changes in the way DHS warns the public and the vendor community about security issues in IC... [More]

InMotion, a large hosting provider based in California, was compromised in recent days and the attackers were able to replace the index files of thousands of sites, defacing them and in some cases making it difficult for site owners to recover and reload their sites.
The attack occurred on Sunday and the company posted a notice on its site about the incident, but many users posting on the company's forums complained that they were never notified about the attack by InMotion. Some of them said that they only learned that their sites had been defaced when a customer or other third party informed them about it.
In a message posted on the company's support forum, InMotion's president said that... [More]

SAN FRANCISCO--A panel of cloud providers and enterprise security professionals said that in order to make enterprise security teams feel more comfortable giving up their data, cloud providers need to be more transparent and open about the security measures and processes they have in place to protect that data. Those assurances , they said, need to go beyond the current point-in-time assessments and move to more meaningful continuous monitoring processes.
Cloud computing is continuing to gain ground in enterprises in many industries, as well as with smaller businesses that are eager to save money and off-load some of their work load to providers who may have more security expertise ... [More]

Summary: While Windows Client is getting all of the attention at Microsoft’s BUILD conference, a powerful Cloud enabled operating system waits patiently in the wings with Server 8.
Since last Thursday, I was ordered under strict nondisclosure to keep my mouth shut. And that was really hard for me to do because I could barely contain my enthusiasm for what is probably the most significant server operating system release that Microsoft has ever planned to roll out.
Nothing from Microsoft, and I mean literally nothing has ever been this ambitious or has tried to achieve so much in a single server product release since Windows 2000, when Active Directory was first introduced... [More]

Summary: It’s debatable whether webOS’s third owner—potentially Facebook after HP and Palm—would be the charm for the orphaned mobile operating system.
HP is trying to sell its webOS and Facebook may be one of the few viable buyers, according to one analysts. The bigger question is whether Facebook can take a slick mobile operating system and make a big mobile move.
Jefferies analyst Peter Misek made the argument that Facebook could buy HP’s webOS. The rationale goes like this:
Mobile media is integrated. Google has Android in a vertical stack that now includes hardware via the Motorola Mobility acquisition. Apple has its iOS integration with the i... [More]

Summary: For the first time, Microsoft has made an early version of a major operating system available to everyone and anyone, and I wonder where they got that idea… Hmmm, Linux maybe?
You, yes you, can now download a copy of Windows 8. This marks the first time that Microsoft has released a pre-beta version of one of their flagship programs to the general public. I wonder where they got that idea. Could it be from Linux? After all Linux distributions has been making early versions available to the public since Linux started 20-years ago.
The Windows 8 Developer Preview alpha build, was released shortly after 8 PM Eastern on Tuesday, September 13th. The last time, debuted a... [More]
