  • floofloof@lemmy.catoLinux@lemmy.mlSUSE Requests openSUSE to Rebrand
    20 hours ago

    That must be annoying just after OpenSUSE went through a branding redesign process. I guess they’ll have to give up the gecko logo since SUSE also uses it?

    And there’s more at stake than a rebranding it seems. This could signal SUSE withdrawing development support from OpenSUSE:

    Let’s face it: SUSE has been more than just a namesake for openSUSE; it has actively provided resources and support far beyond what it would ordinarily need for its business operations.

    This generosity has fostered a thriving openSUSE project that has excelled under SUSE’s goodwill and informal support, including contributions made by SUSE employees on company time.

    However, the recent request for a branding separation has overshadowed this partnership. If openSUSE does not handle this request with the sensitivity and cooperation it demands, the project risks not just a reduction in support from SUSE but a potential shift in priorities away from it.

    The “Factory first” policy, a cornerstone of the engineering synergy between SUSE and openSUSE, could also be scrutinized, emphasizing the gravity of the current situation.

  • “The threat actor leveraged CVE-2024-38112 to execute malicious code by abusing the MHTML protocol handler and x-usc directives through internet shortcut (URL) files. Using this technique, the threat actor was able to access and run files directly through the disabled Internet Explorer instance on Windows machines,” Trend Micro researchers noted.

    Which Windows machines still have remnants of Internet Explorer on them? Do Windows 11 machines still include a disabled Internet Explorer or core components of Internet Explorer?

  • To me “neoliberal” implies something more strongly and consciously right-leaning than “liberal”, which includes all the wishy-washy centrists who think a little bit of tinkering around the edges and an appeal to decency and fairness can fix the problems of capitalism, without ever recognizing them as basic features of capitalism itself. So there’s a purpose to using the term “liberal”: it’s broader, and includes ideological neoliberals as well as those who think they’re leftish but actually cooperate with and facilitate all the exploitation around us.
