12/2016 Linux SIG

On Dec. 19th the Linux SIG takes a back seat to a special holiday treat for all TBCS members / guests. I plan to show two security videos and squeeze in some Linux business in between.

The Dark Side of Technology, be careful… was presented at the recent APCUG 2016 Annual Meeting. Rod Scher outlines some online dangers I had not previously considered. You’ll appreciate knowing this information.

everydaycybercrime Everyday cybercrime — and what you can do about it! How do we pick up malicious online viruses, the malware that snoops on your data and taps your bank account? Often, it’s through simple things we do each day without thinking twice. James Lyne reminds us in this TED video that it’s not only the NSA that’s watching us, but ever-more-sophisticated cybercriminals, who exploit weak code and trusting human nature.

Linux Links resumes next month.

Remember no Chromebook or FOSS SIGs till January 26.
