ES: ¿Cómo la Centralización tipo Debian ha Hecho a GNU/Linux MUY SEGURO

Posted in Debian, GNU/Linux, Security, Windows at 2:28 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Data storage with USB

(ODF | PDF | English/original)

Resumen: A pesar de algunas denuncias maliciosas, Microsoft sigue copiando la funciones de seguridad de Linux, no al revés.

Los sitios de noticias de tecnología han comenzado a empujar la historia “USB”, lo que sugiere que heredar el comportamiento en Windows hace a Linux menos seguro. Hay muchas réplicas presentadas por escrito al respecto y le haremos frente en una etapa posterior. Por el momento, recordemos la gran ventaja de GNU/Linux no sólo en lo que respecta a la centralización de software en los repositorios de confianza (lo que verifica la seguridad y la protege de descargas maliciosas desde sitios arbitrarios). Una de las grandes ventajas de este enfoque es que utilizando el mismo mecanismo GNU/Linux mantiene todo el software subyacente – no sólo el núcleo del sistema operativo – al día con los parches de seguridad. Windows no tiene esto (Apple emula esto y Microsoft sólo expresa las esperanzas de emular algún día, al igual que emula sudo) y, de hecho, un escritor dice ahora que “Microsoft tiene que abrir Windows Update para los desarrolladores de terceras partes[http://www.betanews.com/article/Why-Microsoft-has-to-open-Windows-Update-to-thirdparty-developers/1296852522]“:

Hay una gran confusión que hay acerca de cuándo los ataques contra los ordenadores se producen como consecuencia de las vulnerabilidades en el software y no de algún otro punto débil, por lo general de ingeniería social. hay considerables progresos logrados en la protección contra las vulnerabilidades en Windows, y podemos hacer aún más difícil su explotación, si Microsoft se puede convencer a sí mismo de mi plan: abrir Windows Update para las aplicaciones de terceros.

Mi propia opinión es que la ingeniería social es mucho más importante que las vulnerabilidades y ha ido aumentando en importancia. Una razón para esto es que las vulnerabilidades son un objetivo más difícil de lo que solía ser, y eso es en gran parte debido al trabajo que Microsoft ha hecho en los últimos 6 o 7 años.

Glyn Moody escribió sobre la confesión William Hague, que hemos mencionado, el otro día[http://techrights.org/2011/02/05/william-hague-got-pwn3d/], alegando con razón[http://blogs.computerworlduk.com/open-enterprise/2011/02/uk-cyberwar---or-uk-cyberwallies/index.htm] que los sistemas operativos desempeñar un papel importante aquí:

La clave es darse cuenta de que el vínculo peligroso que los idiotas gobierno del Reino Unido ha hecho clic en descargar a su PC el troyano Zeus – un keylogger que SOLO AFECTA A WINDOWS (no es como que alguna vez habías supuesto a partir de la cobertura de la corriente principal PATETICA de cualquier infección Zeus ). Así que si el gobierno del Reino Unido intercambia muchos de los sistemas Windows caros y vulnerables, con los de bajos costos y mucho más seguro de GNU/Linux con los que, estaríamos a salvo de la mayor parte de las pérdidas de los ciber-wallies, para casi ningún desembolso.

Pero eso sería demasiado fácil, eficiente e inteligente – especialmente cuando hay un paquete de aullido de las empresas de seguridad que tienen el olor de los 650 millones smackeroonies en sus fosas nasales dilatadas. Para evitar que la amenaza de reducir al mínimo la amenaza con medios tan sencillos, que sin duda va a crear un crescendo de FUD sobre el inminente “ciber-Armageddon” que todos nos enfrentamos si el gobierno del Reino Unido no lanza cubos de dinero en su dirección a “defender , la demora, el ataque y las maniobras en el ciberespacio “, como el General Sir David Richards, jefe del Estado Mayor de defensa, lo puso en el artículo citado anteriormente (¿cómo demonios haces maniobras en el “ciberespacio?)

El problema es que no importa mucho cómo las empresas de seguridad reclaman sus soluciones costosas son a prueba de idiotas, subestiman la inteligencia de los idiotas – o la falta de profundidad e intrínsecos de la seguridad ofrecida por un monocultivo de Microsoft, que es aún más resistente que el molesto “ciber “prefijo ….

En el mismo día, Moody también compartió un enlace a este curiosa [http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/cache/ITY_PUBLIC/4-07022011-AP/EN/4-07022011-AP-EN.PDF] PDF, que sugiere que “Casi 1/3 de los usuarios de Internet en la Unión Europa -27 han capturado un virus informático” (Moody agregó: “aqui no se menciona Windows, sólo por un cambio”) .

Fue hace casi 3 años que escribimos acerca de las estadísticas que sugieren un 40% de las PC de Windows se había convertido en zombies[http://techrights.org/2008/05/14/windows-zombie-pc-40-pct/], si los usuarios saben esto o no.

Many thanks to Eduardo Landaveri of the Spanish portal of Techrights.

  2. On the Internet, Trust Should Not Become Centralised

    “Trust” is a word that lost its meaning in the era of “TPM” and fancier names for 'Palladium'; we need to reject this idea that computers need to check with Microsoft if the operating system is trusted (not just Windows!), check with Gulag/Chrome if a Web site is trusted, and whether it's OK to run some application/s on one's own computer (as if Jim Zemlin et al get to decide what is trusted)



  3. Microsoft-Connected Publishers Suffer and Perish With Microsoft (While Peddling 'Fake News' for Their Beloved Sponsor)

    IDG and other fake news outlets/networks/sites (selling to companies flattering articles about themselves or renting out 'news space' to them, not just ad space) want us to think Microsoft is doing very well, but it's just that same old Ponzi scheme

  6. [Meme] EPO: Pursuing an Eastern and Western District of Europe (for Patent Trolls and Software Patents)

    With the EPO so flagrantly lying and paying for misinformation maybe we should expect Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos to have delusions of grandeur… such as presiding over the Eastern and Western District of Europe, just like Mr. Gilstrap and Mr. Albright (political appointment by Donald Trump, ushering in “the swamp”)



  7. Gemini at 2,000: 86% of Capsules Use Self-Signed Certificate, Just Like the Techrights Web Site (WWW)

    As shown in the charts above (updated an hour ago), the relative share of ‘Linux’ Foundation (LE/LF; same thing, same office) in the capsules’ certificates has decreased over time; more and more (in terms of proportion) capsules choose to sign their own certificate/s; the concept of ‘fake security’ (centralisation and consolidation) should be rejected universally because it leaves nobody safe except plutocrats



  8. [Meme] UPC: Many Lies as Headlines, Almost Exclusively in Publishers Sponsored by EPO and Team UPC to Produce Fake News (Lobbying Through Misinformation)

    Lest we forget that EPO dictators, like Pinky and the Brainless Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos, have long littered the EPO's official Web site as well as publishers not directly connected to the EPO (but funded by it) with disinformation about the UPC



  9. EPO as the 'Ministry of Truth' of Team UPC and Special Interests

    The 'Ministry of Truth' of the patent world is turning the EPO's Web site into a propaganda mill, a misinformation farm, and a laughing stock with stock photography



  10. Microsoft 'Delighted' by Windows 11 (Vista 11) Usage, Which is Only 1% Three Months After Official Launch and Six Months After Release Online

    Microsoft boosters such as Bogdan Popa and Mark Hachman work overtime on distraction from the failure Vista 11 has been (the share of Windows continues to fall relative to other platforms)

  12. Don't Fall for Microsoft's Spin That Says Everything is Not Secure and Cannot be Secured

    Microsoft keeps promoting the utterly false concept that everything is not secure and there's nothing that can be done about it (hence, might as well stay with Windows, whose insecurity is even intentional)



  13. At Long Last: 2,000 Known Gemini Capsules!

    The corporate media, looking to appease its major sponsors (such as Web/advertising giants), won't tell you that Gemini Protocol is rising very rapidly; its userbase and the tools available for users are rapidly improving while more and more groups, institutions and individuals set up their own capsule (equivalent of a Web site)

  17. Why the Unified Patent Court (UPC) is Still Just a Fantasy and the UPC's Fake News Mill Merely Discredits the Whole Patent 'Profession'

    Patents and science used to be connected; but now that the patent litigation 'sector' is hijacking patent offices (and even courts in places like Texas) it's trying to shove a Unified Patent Court (UPC) down the EU's throat under the disingenuous cover of "community" or "unity"

  19. Gemini Milestones and Growth (Almost 2,000 Known Gemini Servers Now, 39,000 Pages in Ours)

    The diaspora to Gemini Protocol or the transition to alternative 'webs' is underway; a linearly growing curve suggests that inertia/momentum is still there and we reap the benefits of early adoption of Gemini



  20. [Meme] Get Ready for Unified Patent Court (UPC) to be Taken to Court

    The Unified Patent Court (UPC) and Unitary Patent system that’s crafted to empower EPO thugs isn’t legal and isn’t constitutional either; even a thousand fake news 'articles' (deliberate misinformation or disinformation) cannot change the simple facts because CJEU isn’t “trial by media”



  21. The EPO Needs High-Calibre Examiners, Not Politicians Who Pretend to Understand Patents and Science

    Examiners are meant to obstruct fake patents or reject meritless patent applications; why is it that working conditions deteriorate for those who are intellectually equipped to do the job?



  22. Free Software is Greener

    Software Freedom is the only way to properly tackle environmental perils through reuse and recycling; the mainstream media never talks about it because it wants people to "consume" more and more products

    "My daughter asked me about why are we throwing away some bits of technology," Dr. Andy Farnell says. "This is my attempt to put into words for "ordinary" people what I tried to explain to a 6 year old."



  27. Microsoft GitHub Exposé — Part XV — Cover-Up and Defamation

    Defamation of one’s victims might be another offence to add to the long list of offences committed by Microsoft’s Chief Architect of GitHub Copilot, Balabhadra (Alex) Graveley; attempting to discredit the police report is a new low and can get Mr. Graveley even deeper in trouble (Microsoft protecting him only makes matters worse)



  28. [Meme] Alexander Ramsay and Team UPC Inciting Politicians to Break the Law and Violate Constitutions, Based on Misinformation, Fake News, and Deliberate Lies Wrapped up as 'Studies'

    The EPO‘s law-breaking leadership (Benoît Battistelli, António Campinos and their corrupt cronies), helped by liars who don't enjoy diplomatic immunity, are cooperating to undermine courts across the EU, in effect replacing them with EPO puppets who are patent maximalists (Europe’s equivalents of James Rodney Gilstrap and Alan D Albright, a Donald Trump appointee, in the Eastern and Western Districts of Texas, respectively)



  29. Has the Administrative Council Belatedly Realised What Its Job in the European Patent Organisation Really Is?

    The "Mafia" which took over the EPO (the EPO's own workers call it "Mafia") isn't getting its way with a proposal, so it's preventing the states from even voting on it!



  30. [Meme] Team UPC is Celebrating a Pyrrhic Victory

    Pyrrhic victory best describes what's happening at the moment (it’s a lobbying tactic, faking/staging things to help false prophecies be fulfilled, based on hopes and wishes alone), for faking something without bothering to explain the legal basis is going to lead to further escalations and complaints (already impending)
