BF-SIRT Newsletter 2013-34

One of this week’s biggest events has been that Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison. Those interested in hearing how one can turn into a security industry analyst should listen to the interview with Rich Mogull. The end of Windows XP is also drawing nearer (April 8th, 2014) which means there won’t be any patches coming out after that date, meaning also no security patches, so those who still haven’t updated should definitely look into doing so as soon as possible!

    From the XP link above one could read: “You out there, the one running XP! That’s you I’m talking about when I say “helpless.” When the new models show up for the holidays it’s time to go computer shopping.”

    Or you could look into http://www.lubuntu.net/ or http://xubuntu.org/ to, without much effort, continue to use the same computer without having to upgrade hardware.
