Andy Prough commented >> Firefox has the GNU/Linux distro market mostly to itself, as it comes pre-installed with almost every distro. Google could actually complain about it the same way if it wanted to.

Why would they complain?

Chrome OS, is a Linux-based operating system designed by Google. ChromeOS is based on the Linux kernel. Without the Linux kernel, it would be nothing. Google Chrome is the default browser on ChromeOS. ChromeOS could very well be more popular than all mainstream Linux distros combined, as Chromebooks are becoming very popular and ChromeOS is very popular according to statistics.

Chromebooks outsold Macs globally in 2020, shrinking Windows’ market share
https://www.geekwire.com/2021/chromebooks-outsold-macs-worldwide-2020-cutting-windows-market-share/

I expect Chromebooks to become even more popular because they’re cheap and ChromeOS offers better security compared to Windows or Mac. According to statistics, no other operating system has as many security problems as Windows. ChromeOS is based on Linux, which is why it has better security than Windows or Mac.

ChromeOS however is inferior to some of the best Linux based operating systems such as Fedora, Arch, Ubuntu, Mint, Debian, Gentoo. No reason to use crappy Google software or their proprietary browser when superior options exist.

As a user of some Linux distributions, I would expect a FOSS browser to be the default on FOSS operating systems or I won’t use such operating systems. If a chromium-based browser was installed by default on an operating system, I would not use such an operating system. I would never use AndroidOS, Windows, ChromeOS. Even though ChromeOS is Linux-based, I would never use it, simply because Google is an ad tech company and a proprietary browser is the default browser on ChromeOS.

The most popular FOSS browser according to statistics is Firefox. It makes perfect sense that it is installed by default on the best Linux-based operating systems.

Competing Chromium-based browsers use technology designed/created by Google, the chrome codebase, which gives this browser codebase a kind of monopoly, where Google can dictate what the web standards should be.

When using a FOSS distro, it is recommended to use Firefox, as it is the only FOSS browser with its own unique engine (Gecko) that contains excellent privacy/security/customization and having something like more 10% of its code base in great new features. technology such as the RUST secure programming language.

Unlike Chromium-based browsers, around 10% of Firefox uses Rust, a more secure programming language specifically designed to be memory safe.

Some things to think about from the article below.

About 70% of all serious security bugs in Chrome’s codebase are memory management and security bugs.
Today, Rust is considered one of the safest programming languages ​​and an ideal replacement for C and C++, mainly due to early efforts by Mozilla.
Google engineers say their approach to sandboxing Chrome’s components has achieved its maximum benefit when considering performance, and the company must now turn to new approaches.
https://www.zdnet.com/article/chrome-70-of-all-security-bugs-are-memory-safety-issues/

Just read all the tech news articles describing all the security issues/fixes that Chrome or Chromium browsers have against Firefox. The supposedly superior site isolation and sandboxing it has compared to Firefox doesn’t mean much, when it’s Chrome that has far more security issues according to statistics.

Google, the ad tech company, is really the ultimate guardian of what the Chromium codebase can do, they are known to have the most commitments in the Chromium project. It’s no surprise that chromium-based browsers don’t have as good privacy/customization features as Firefox, since the chromium codebase is MOSTLY designed for a proprietary browser. It’s not a really smart argument to suggest that the chrome codebase would have better security/privacy than Gecko/Rust, when one codebase is primarily developed for a proprietary browser (Chrome) and the other code has was developed for a FOSS browser.

Chromium based browsers are inadequate, lacking and inferior to Firefox. An example why? Chromium-codebase is mainly used for the development of a proprietary browser (Chrome). No security expert worth their salt would recommend proprietary software over FOSS. Another example? Mozilla invented RUST (Show how talented they are) and Firefox on desktop is very customizable.

Also, UBO works best on Firefox, but again, Mozilla isn’t Google, so that’s to be expected. UBO Lite for lower browsers lol.

Firefox is not perfect, but even more perfect than other browsers.

@Karl

Karl RESPONDS to JonSnow >> You sound like Iron Heart

I also think it’s odd that some Anti-Firefox comments sometimes sound a lot like what Iron Heart would say, such as praising, defending, or supporting a narrative of his obsessive negativity against Firefox in the Ghacks comments section in many numerous browser news articles. . Never forget that people say they create UBO filters especially for him, to block his comments from view lol.

I think it sounds like something Iron Heart would write.

Boo Hoo commented >> I’m tech savvy, know exactly how everything about my browser of choice and search on my operating system. I still won’t choose Firefox. Because it’s crap.

What looks like a comment in support of Iron Hearts comments here

Iron Heart commented >> There is a clearly described setting in all operating systems to change the default browser, and people obviously aren’t too stupid to use it either, otherwise Chrome wouldn’t have replaced the Windows and macOS default for most people!
IronHeart commented >> people have to go to settings once to change the default, which they’re supposedly too dumb to do, when they’re clearly capable of doing it in real life. Ridiculous.

Weird!

@Yash

Yash commented >> I’m sorry for your lack of knowledge on some topics and yet I pretend you know everything. So next time, better do some research. By the way, real research and not some other madainwhatever the nonsense.

Iron Heart’s know-it-all attitude, while literally having no idea what he’s talking about, is very annoying, I agree. He says he uses Google Pixel phones, I guess he likes Google products in his pocket? He likes Google a lot, likes the code created by Google like the chromium-codebase? He doesn’t like FOSS like Firefox? He says he makes fun of people who say he likes Google? Well, if he really didn’t like Google, he wouldn’t be using Google Pixel phones.

See some more ignorant Iron Heart nonsense here

Iron Heart commented >> The default browser just means any kind of external link opens in it, not that it literally becomes part of the system

Edge browser is a browser that is highly integrated with Windows OS, just like Internet Explorer, Edge is a big part of Windows 10/11, highly integrated with OS. A lot of Iron Heart’s knowledge of browsers and operating systems = uneducated nonsense.

What is the most secure operating system? 5 secure PC operating systems to consider https://notizie-informatiche.com/what-is-the-most-secure-operating-system-5-secure-pc-operating-systems-to-consider/ Sat, 10 Sep 2022 15:01:00 +0000 https://notizie-informatiche.com/what-is-the-most-secure-operating-system-5-secure-pc-operating-systems-to-consider/ Operating systems are something that many computer users take at face value, but the security measures in place still work to keep your device safe.

Operating systems are something that many computer users take at face value, but the security measures in place still work to keep your device safe.


Choosing the right operating system (OS) is essential to staying safe online, but no operating system is impossible to hack. Hackers can infiltrate systems and target users with malware to spy on them, steal their personal information, or even disable their operating system.

There are many operating systems aimed at ensuring the security of your firmware and computer programs. Here are some of the most secure operating systems available today.


Qubes OS is an open-source, privacy-focused Linux distribution that aims to provide security through isolation. The operating system works on the principle of compartmentalization security, isolating user files to protect them from malware.

The operating system uses Xen-based virtualization to categorize programs into isolated virtual machines (Xen domains) called qubes. It is in these Xen domains that applications run.

The principle of isolation allows Qube OS to create multiple qubes in which application instances are affected. Qubes OS runs each application in a separate qube, and an individual instance of an application is limited to its own qube.

Compartmentalization ensures that an infected application or malicious code cannot infect other applications and programs or crash the host operating system.

Qubes OS provides a secure environment for using other operating systems including Fedora, Whonix, Debian, and Windows.

Privacy and security have long been core values ​​for Apple, and macOS devices have received several improvements, all thanks to macOS Monterey, the latest version of macOS.

With macOS Monterey, Apple has chosen to strengthen Mail’s privacy protections. Mail Privacy Protection masks users’ IP addresses; this means senders can’t use it to track your location or associate it with your other online activities. This feature also prevents email senders from knowing if and when you have read their email.

Also, starting in Monterey, you’ll see an orange notification in the menu bar whenever an app has access to your microphone.

There are also some important changes to Safari on Monterey that help macOS users stay safe online. One of them is the ability to automatically upgrade HTTP addresses to their HTTPS equivalents. This option is activated by default.

The new web browser also enhances the already advanced Smart Tracking Prevention feature. The privacy feature helps prevent web trackers from seeing your IP address and therefore tracking you across the internet.

Microsoft claims Windows 11 is the most secure Windows ever. However, Windows operating system security enhancements require new system specifications and requirements. So, to take full advantage of its security enhancements, your Windows PC must have TPM 2.0. It should also support Secure Boot to prevent malware from attacking the boot process.

Your PC uses the TPM 2.0 chip to store encryption keys and support other security features, including BitLocker for data protection and Windows Hello for identity protection.

It’s not just your security systems that use a TPM. Programs like Firefox, Chrome, and Outlook use it for certain encryption tasks.

The operating system also requires at least 4 GB of memory, 64 GB of storage, and 1 GHz with two cores on a compatible 64-bit processor.

Windows 11 comes with its own antivirus software, Microsoft Defender Antivirus. Antivirus was once considered awful due to its inability to detect malware. However, over the past few years, Microsoft has made some welcome changes that have improved Defender, and it’s now one of the best free antivirus programs. The antivirus can detect, block and neutralize malware and ranks better than some paid competitors.

The operating system also includes Microsoft Defender SmartScreen, a service used by Microsoft Edge to keep you safe while browsing the internet. SmartScreen checks the websites you visit against a list of known malicious sites. If it finds a matching site, it blocks it.

OpenBSD is a Unix-like operating system based on Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD). The free and open source operating system was founded by a team of volunteers.

OpenBSD runs on cross-platform 4.4 BSD, a Unix-based operating system renowned for its robust security features. The operating system has its security enhancements enabled by default to minimize the chances of encountering security issues.

Naturally, OpenBSD aims to be the most secure operating system available, and its developers strive to proactively fix security vulnerabilities. The operating system is also intentionally and continuously audited, and any bugs and security issues found are fixed.

The operating system includes OpenSSH, a suite of networking utilities that provides secure communications between two untrusted hosts over an unsecured network.

OpenBSD prides itself on its full disclosure policy. This allows its developers to be completely transparent with any security vulnerabilities they find when they occur.

Whonix is ​​a free, open-source operating system designed for advanced security and privacy. The operating system focuses on securing and anonymizing your online activities.

The Debian-based Linux distribution uses the Tor network to hide and protect users’ IP address and location. Even malware with root privileges cannot find your real IP address. The operating system routes all internet connections through the Tor network. Traffic that cannot be routed through the network is disabled and blocked.

Whonix provides a host of anti-tracking protection technologies, including boot clock randomization and secure network time synchronization via sdwdate (Secure Distributed Web Date).

Whonix consists of two virtual machines: the workstation and the gateway. The former runs user applications on a completely isolated network, while the latter runs Tor processes and acts as a gateway.

Whonix also offers Tor Messenger, encrypted email, secure data transfer, and other software. Plus, it’s available for macOS, Windows, and most Linux distributions, and comes pre-installed on Qubes.

Which operating system is the most secure?

Almost all operating systems are designed with security as a requirement, but there can be no truly secure operating system. Something malicious can always happen, no matter how secure you think your favorite operating system is.

All operating systems including macOS, Windows and BSD can be hacked. Additionally, reports of increasing computer hijackings in which consumer data has been stolen or misused have been in the news for some time.

A reasonably secure operating system can help protect your business and personal information. Knowing more about cyber threats and how to secure your PC is also helpful.

FILE PHOTO: A North Korean businessman using a cellphone at a local market. (NK daily)

North Korea plans to carry out a nationwide update to its mobile phone operating system at the end of the year, Daily NK has learned.

North Korea is promoting the update, saying it will improve cellphone performance, but a source in the country told Daily NK that the real goal is to prevent the spread of “anti-socialist and non-socialists.

A source from Daily NK in North Korea said on Wednesday that authorities plan to update the operating system in December.

“This is to achieve the direction of this year’s general plan for security-related activities and the decisions of the February review of activities aimed at countering anti-socialist and non-socialist phenomena,” he said. he declares.

Based on his account, authorities claim that if people update their phones to the new state-developed operating system, their phones will experience improved speed and performance.

“However, the authorities have not explained exactly how this will happen, he added.

Basically, the authorities are encouraging people to actively participate in the nationwide update, pointing out how updating their phone’s OS will improve performance.

North Korea is particularly keen to get users of older phone models to update their systems.

“Phones released three to five years ago should upgrade to the new OS or have their apps inspected,” the source said.

The latest phone models have already fixed vulnerabilities in the existing operating system or apply stricter security policies.

As a result, many North Koreans using older phones avoid updating them, or even use circumvention programs to enjoy content from the outside world deemed illegal by authorities.

That’s why many North Koreans aren’t particularly happy with the update order.

“People can’t put down their cellphones because life is too complicated without them,” the source said. “People find it annoying and frustrating that the state scrutinizes their phones so closely.

“Some people even say that if this is socialism, it would be better to go back to feudalism,” he continued, adding: “Most people, however, are in a damn-if-you-do, damn-if-you- no situation.

Many North Koreans are also unhappy about having to pay to update their phone’s operating system, although authorities have yet to decide on a price for the December update.

The source said that since the update has not started yet, the authorities have not yet issued any instructions regarding the price.

The source also said that North Korea is drawing up plans to deploy law enforcement and security personnel to busy streets outside train stations and other similar areas to carry out random inspections of cellphones. people.

Authorities plan to confiscate phones that have not been updated to the latest operating system with some kind of grace period.

Daily NK reported in July North Korea has ordered all registered cellphone users and computer owners to update certain programs by the end of August. North Korean authorities plan to use the update to check whether users have installed illegally developed and distributed security bypass programs on their phones.

New ransomware gangs have adapted their malware to different computer operating systems, potentially causing even more damage to organizations, reports cybersecurity firm Kaspersky.

Kaspersky researchers reveal that the RedAlert and Monster cyberattack groups hit different operating systems without using cross-platform languages. Kaspersky notes the discovery of “one-day exploits that can be executed by ransomware groups in order to achieve their financial ambitions”.

According to Kaspersky research, cross-platform targets are a prime attack vector for ransomware groups, which seek to damage as many operating systems as possible by adapting their malicious code. These ransomware groups typically used cross-platform Rust or Golang languages ​​such as Luna or BlackCat.

Now, ransomware groups deploy malware that is not written in a cross-platform language, but can still target multiple operating systems simultaneously.

RedAlert and Monster Jam operating systems

RedAlert uses malware written in plain C, as detected in the Linux sample, Kaspersky found. RedAlert is different from other ransomware groups in that it only accepts payments in Monero cryptocurrency, which makes the money harder to trace. Kaspersky, which offers an MSP partner program, notes that Monero is not accepted in all countries and by all exchanges, so victims might find it difficult to pay the ransom.

Detected in July 2022, the Monster ransomware group applies Delphi, a general-purpose programming language, to write its malware and exploit various operating systems, Kaspersky reports. Interestingly, the attack applies a graphical user interface (GUI), a component that has never been implemented by ransomware groups before.

Additionally, cyber criminals have executed ransomware attacks through the command line in an automated manner. Monster ransomware authors included the GUI as an optional command-line parameter, according to the sample extracted by Kaspersky experts.

Jornt van der Wiel, Senior Security Researcher for Kaspersky’s Global Research and Analytics Team, offered his perspective on the current state of ransomware attacks:

“We are quite familiar with ransomware groups that deploy malware written in a cross-platform language. However, these days, cybercriminals have learned to adjust their malicious code written in simple programming languages ​​for joint attacks, forcing security specialists to devise ways to detect and prevent ransomware attempts. We also draw attention to the importance of continuously reviewing and updating companies’ patch policies. »

US and UK authorities issue warning to MSPs

CISA, the FBI, and UK authorities have repeatedly warned MSPs of incoming ransomware attacks.

The latest joint warning, released in May 2022, included 12 tips to help MSPs reduce the risk of a ransomware cyberattack threat. Separately, Microsoft issued a ransomware cyberattack warning to small businesses and their IT service providers in July 2022.

The global operating system market is expected to grow from $43.14 billion in 2021 to $44.61 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.4%. The growth is mainly due to companies reorganizing their operations and recovering from the impact of COVID-19, which had previously led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working and the closure of business activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $48.18 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 1.9%.

The operating systems market includes sales of operating systems by entities (organizations, sole proprietorships, and partnerships) that supply operating systems, which are software programs that enable computer hardware to communicate and operate with computer software. Only goods and services exchanged between entities or sold to final consumers are included.

The main types of operating systems are Windows, Mac OS, Linux and others. The Windows operating system is software that acts as an interface between the end user and the computer hardware. Different types of products include Windows, Linux, Android, iOS, macOS and others and are used in computers and mobiles. It is distributed through the business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) channel.

Regions covered in Operating System Market are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.

The increase in the demand for computer systems has contributed to the growth of the operating system market. The increase in demand for computers generates an increased need for operating systems to perform tasks such as memory management, file management, process management, input and output function management and to control hardware such as printers and disk drivers. According to Gartner statistics released in January 2020, worldwide personal computer shipments were approximately 70.6 million in 2019. Additionally, worldwide computer system shipments totaled 261.2 million units in 2019. By Therefore, the increase in the demand for computer systems has contributed to the operating system market.

The increasing use of pirated versions of operating systems is expected to limit the growth of the operating system market. Software piracy is a major concern that has impacted software publishers’ revenues for decades. According to Microsoft’s study published in nine Asian countries, more than four out of five or 83% of all new computers sold in nine Asian countries come with pirated software and malware preloaded. Moreover, according to BSA, the Software Alliance, about 74% of all commercial software used in China is pirated.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pennsylvania — The kernel of an operating system acts as a translator between the user and the machine. To improve kernel reliability, developers can isolate device drivers from the operating system and prevent a failure of one component from affecting other components. Isolation, however, requires impractical human effort.

A team of researchers, led by G. Gary Tan and Trent Jaeger, professors of computer science and engineering at Penn State, set out to develop a framework that could automate and reduce the amount of manual work needed for driver isolation. device in the presence of difficult kernel models.

The researchers presented their framework at the 16th USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation (OSDI ’22), which took place July 11-13 in Carlsbad, California. OSDI is a premier conference in operating systems research and brings together professionals from academia and industry to discuss system software design, implementation and implications, according to its website.

The operating system kernel controls and coordinates all hardware and software in the computer. Device drivers allow the kernel to interact with hardware without knowing component details. For example, when a user asks their computer to print a document, the kernel invokes some interface functions provided by a printer driver, which processes the data and sends the job to the printer.

According to Tan, to effectively isolate device drivers and maintain kernel-driver communication, developers had to inspect the large and complex communication interface between a driver and the kernel and decide what data needed to be synchronized by looking at all driver interactions. and the core. They also had to deal with difficult timing patterns such as data concurrency, writing thousands of lines of code to keep operations running smoothly.

“Isolation is an effective technique for improving the reliability of software systems, such as the kernel, but relying on human effort to isolate drivers is unrealistic, so we decided to develop a framework to automate the process,” Tan said. “With isolation, a component’s failure is confined to its own domain; bugs in one component cannot directly affect the rest of the system. This greatly improves reliability.
