A new vulnerability has been discovered in Sudo-one of the most important, powerful, and commonly used utilities that comes as a core command installed on almost every UNIX and Linux-based operating system.
New Linux kernel "lockdown" module to limit high-privileged users -- even root -- from tampering with some kernel functionality.
Security experts have found a race condition vulnerability (CVE-2019-11815) in Linux Kernel Prior to 5.0.8 that expose systems to remote code execution.
A new backdoor is targeting Linux servers in East Asia and Latin America, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) hosted machines, Check Point security researchers say.
The unique and intrinsic methods by which Linux application containers are created, deployed, networked, and operated do not lend themselves well to the conventional application of methods for conducting intrusion detection and analysis in traditional physical and virtual machine networks. While similarities exist in some of the methods used to perform
The security vulnerability impacts the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA), which is a software framework that establishes an application programming interface (API) for sound card drivers in the Linux kernel. While the potential damage from escalated privileges is high, IT decision-makers should note that a patch has already been made available. An
The Linux Security Summit (LSS) is a technical forum for collaboration between Linux developers, researchers, and end users. Its primary aim is to foster community efforts in analyzing and solving Linux security challenges.
Security researchers have discovered more than a decade-old vulnerability in several Unix-based operating systems - including Linux, OpenBSD, NetBSD, FreeBSD and Solaris - which can be exploited by attackers to escalate their privileges to root, potentially leading to a full system takeover.
A recently observed piece of malware targeting embedded Linux systems can provide attackers with full control over the infected devices, ESET security researchers warn.
Linux kernel security needs a rethink. The Linux kernel today faces an unprecedented safety crisis. Much like when Ralph Nader famously told the American public that their cars were "unsafe at any speed" back in 1965, numerous security developers told the 2016 Linux Security Summit in Toronto that the operating system needs a total rethink to keep it fit for
