HandyLinux Is a Great Toolbox for Linux Newbies

Linux Insider Embedded - Sat, 2016-07-09 18:00
HandyLinux is a distro that offers a simplified approach to using the Linux desktop operating system. HandyLinux first appeared about three years ago. The latest version, 2.5, was released in early June. The developers make it easy to peel off the "Handy" layers to reveal a more standard Linux environment as users learn the system. Those who no longer need the IT tools included with the initial installation can remove them easily using the Handy2Debian application from the main menu.

HummingBad Mucks Up Android's Works

Linux Insider Embedded - Wed, 2016-07-06 19:08
More than 85 million Android devices worldwide have been taken over by the Yingmob, a group of China-based cybercriminals who created the HummingBad malware, according to a Check Point report released last week. HummingBad establishes a persistent rootkit on Android devices, generates fraudulent ad revenue, and installs additional fraudulent apps. If it fails to establish a rootkit, it effectively carpet bombs the target devices with poisoned apps. HummingBad has been generating revenue of $300,000 a month, according to Check Point.

Blogosphere Chews on Android Nougat

Linux Insider Embedded - Wed, 2016-07-06 17:10
Google last week revealed the official name of its next mobile operating system: "Android Nougat." The OS previously went only by "Android N," and Google invited the blogosphere to fill in the blanks. The choice sparked some derision, particularly among those who had preferred "Nutella." "What is nougat anyway?" asked John Jackson, a research VP at IDC. "It's like the 'nog' in eggnog; it doesn't exactly stand alone." That said, Nougat is consistent with Google's pattern of choosing generic sweets rather than branded product names.

MakuluLinux developer Jacque Montague Raymer released MakuluLinux 11 LinDoz edition earlier this month after a year and a half in the making.
