    At work I often see my colleges stuck with the fact that they do all the same things with the computers, day after day. Going to facebook, see some youtube videos, reading some news, chatting and of course working. When they see I don’t use Windows or Mac they ofter say: “oh, you are one …

  • Shellshock - Bash bug vulnerability
    olivier on Mon, 29 Sep 2014 20:06:51 +0000

    Some of you might have hear about the recently identified linux vulnerability called ShellShock. A way to find out if your device/pc/server is impacted is to run in a terminal:

    env x='() { :;}; echo vulnerable' bash -c "echo this is a test"

    The output on a vulnerable system will read

    this is a test

    A patched or unaffected system will output:

    bash: warning: x: ignoring function definition attempt
    bash: error importing function definition for 'x'
    this is a test

    I did run it on my 2014.0 (x86_64) and it looks like it is not affected. But I am not an expert....:) Anyone could confirm that none of the OpenMandriva distribution is affected?

  • Handbrake

    I'm wondering if anyone has gotten Handbrake to work in OpenMandriva 2014? In the previous version I just download and ran the Fedora RPM and it worked fine, but I'm not having any luck with them under 2014. Anyone using this in 2014?
