The Linux community was caught unprepared when, in December 2020, as part of a change in the way Red Hat supports and develops CentOS, Red Hat suddenly announced that it's cutting the official CentOS 8 support window from ten years – to just two, with support ending Dec 31, 2021.

It created a peculiar situation where CentOS 7 users that did the right thing and upgraded quickly to CentOS 8 were left using an OS with just a year's official support remaining – while users of CentOS 7 still get full support until June 30, 2024.

It's taking on AMD and NVIDIA with discrete and integrated models.

Intel has chosen a name for its high-performance consumer graphics products: Intel Arc. The branding will cover the hardware and software sides of its high-end graphics cards, as well as services.

Cybersecurity researchers have disclosed a new class of vulnerabilities impacting major DNS-as-a-Service (DNSaaS) providers that could allow attackers to exfiltrate sensitive information from corporate networks.

"We found a simple loophole that allowed us to intercept a portion of worldwide dynamic DNS traffic going through managed DNS providers like Amazon and Google," researchers Shir Tamari and Ami Luttwak from infrastructure security firm Wiz said.

Most Hackaday readers will be familiar with the idea of a network time server; a magical box nestled away in some distant data center that runs the Network Time Protocol (NTP) and allows us to conveniently synchronize the clocks in our computers and gadgets. Particularly eager clock watchers can actually rig up their own NTP server for their personal use, and if you’re a true time aficionado like [Cristiano Monteiro], you might be interested in the portable GPS-controlled time server he recently put together.

Kaseya is requiring customers affected by the massive REvil ransomware attack to sign non-disclosure agreements in order to obtain the decryption key, a move that could shroud the incident in further mystery. Although the decryption key will no doubt bring relief to some victims, others are stating that it will have minimal impact.

A new CNN report published on Friday revealed the non-disclosure agreements, citing several cybersecurity experts working with victims of the attack. The outlet notes that these agreements are not unusual in the cybersecurity industry, but that they could make it harder to understand how the attack occurred. The revelation is the latest step in Kaseya’s tight-lipped response since it announced it had obtained a “universal decryptor” from a “trusted third party” on Thursday.

The latest victim is the public telecom giant of Ecuador, CNT, that disclosed a cyber attack. Researchers suspect a ransomware incident possibly from the RansomEXX gang.
