E-mail Print PDF

linuxTakeaway: The kernel.org Linux repository was rooted by a malware attack. While the breach goes under investigation, the websites for kernel.org, Linux Foundation, and Linux.com are down for maintenance.

A particularly ugly attack originating on kernel.org drove the Linux Foundation and Linux.com to close down its sites for maintenance. Here is part of the message posted on the Linux Foundation website:

Linux Foundation infrastructure including LinuxFoundation.org, Linux.com, and their subdomains are down for maintenance due to a security breach that was discovered on September 8, 2011. The Linux Foundation made this decision in the interest of extreme caution and security best practices. We believe this breach was connected to the intrusion on kernel.org.

Goodbye Linux 2.6, Hello Linux 3.0

E-mail Print PDF

linux3_01It's not every week a new major kernel version is released. This past week, the Linux Planet witnessed the Linux 3.0 release, the first major since the 2.6 kernel came out in 2003. It's a number change that has more to do with history than technology, but it is a significant milestone nonetheless.

In many open source software projects a major version change signifies a major change in an application, often one that changes binary compatibility; that's not the case with Linux 3.0.

Linux 3.0 is a numerical change because Linus Torvalds decided it was time to move away from 2.6.x, as the version numbers were getting too big. The last 2.6.x release was the 2.6.39 release that came out in May.
