Rilasciata la release candidate di Zorin OS 6, distribuzione Linux basata su Ubuntu

After a long year of development, The Zorin OS Team are very proud to release the Zorin OS 6 Core Release Candidate, the pre-release version of our groundbreaking new operating system. Zorin OS 6 has been our most significant leap forward since Zorin OS’s initial release nearly 3 years ago. At the core of Zorin OS 6 lies our new, unique desktop environment named "Zorin Desktop" instead of the Unity, Gnome Shell and Cinnamon offerings. Zorin Desktop embraces all of the latest and greatest of Open Source software and technologies such as Gtk3 and other software from the GNOME 3 software stack, all without affecting the familiarity and usability of the desktop which still retains its Windows 7-like default look and our innovative Zorin Look Changer which allows users to choose between the Windows 7, XP and GNOME 2 graphical interfaces. Zorin Desktop uses AWN as the default panel to allow for unparalleled customizability and support for our different looks in the Zorin Look Changer. Along with the new desktop environment Zorin OS 6 RC packs a ton of software updates, a newly redesigned Software Center, Linux Kernel version 3.2 and a load of other improvements and features. We also include our  Zorin Web Browser Manager to ease the installation of web browsers. As Zorin OS 6 is based on Ubuntu 12.04 it is an LTS (Long Term Support) release, provided with 5 years of security updates.

Ricercatori IBM hanno scoperto una vulnerabilità nel browser Android. Secondo quanto scoperto dai ricercatori, e pubblicato in questo documento pdf, è possibile per le applicazioni di terze parti iniettare codice JavaScript nelle istanze del browser di Android. La vulnerabilità riguarderebbe Android 2.3.4 e Android 3.1 ma si crede che esista anche nelle versioni precedenti.

Il codice JavaScript che sarebbe possibile iniettare potrebbe rendere possibile estrarre dal browser informazioni sensibili come i cookie, la cache e la cronologia. L'attacco sfrutterebbe delle falle nel modo in cui il browser reagisce alle chiamate effettuate da altre applicazioni per visualizzare le pagine web.

Il bug, che si trova nel metodo onNewIntent() del browser, è stato corretto nelle versioni 2.3.5 e 3.2 di Android, e saranno disponibili delle patch per Android 2.2.x.
