Additional At-Rest and In-Transit Encryption Options for Amazon EMR

Our customers use Amazon EMR (including Apache Hadoop and the full range of tools that make up the Apache Spark ecosystem) to handle many types of mission-critical big data use cases. For example:
Yelp processes over a terabyte of log files and photos every day.
Expedia processes streams of clickstream, user interaction, and supply data.
FINRA analyzes billions of brokerage transaction records daily.
DataXu evaluates 30 trillion ad opportunities monthly.
Because customers like these (see our big data use cases for many others) are processing data that is mission-critical and often sensitive, they need to keep it safe and sound.
We already offer several data encryption options for EMR including server and client side encryption for Amazon S3 with EMRFS and Transparent Data Encryption for HDFS. While these solutions do a good job of protecting data at rest, they do not address data stored in temporary files

GNOME 3.22 Desktop Environment Officially Released

Reader prisoninmate writes: Today, September 21, is a big day for Linux users, especially those who love the GNOME desktop environment, as the next major release is now officially available. Yes, that’s right, we’re talking about GNOME 3.22, dubbed Karlsruhe after the German host city of the annual GUADEC (GNOME Users And Developers European Conference) event, which took place last month between August 12-14, 2016. Prominent features of the GNOME 3.22 desktop environment include batch rename functionality and support for integration of compressed files built directly into the Nautilus file manager, a new Week View, support for alarms, and the ability to drag and drop events to the GNOME Calendar, as well as an updated GNOME Music app that supports handling of music libraries with thousands of tracks. There are lots of improvements for the GNOME Games app as well, as it now offers support for numerous retro gaming consoles.

Kids need to reclaim their data and security… especially at school

 Another school year is now in full swing, which for many kids means reconnecting with friends and learning. It also means a start of another data collection cycle that is neither visible nor truly optional for the majority of the students. Over a third of US middle and high school students use school-provided laptops or tablets. Even more kids are required to adopt a wide range… Read More

Hackers sell tool to spread malware through torrent files

Be careful with what you torrent. A new tool on the black market is helping hackers distribute malware through torrent files in exchange for a fee.
On Tuesday, security researchers at InfoArmor said they discovered the so-called “RAUM” tool in underground forums.
It leverages torrenting — a popular file-sharing method associated with piracy — to spread the malware. Popular torrent files, especially games, are packaged with malicious coding and then uploaded for unsuspecting users to download.
Using torrents to infect computers is nothing new. But the makers of the RAUM tool have streamlined the whole process with a “Pay-Per-Install” model, according to InfoArmor.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Say hello to Google Allo: a smarter messaging app

Express yourself with photos, emojis and stickers
Chat is more than just text, so we’ve created a rich canvas for you to express yourself in Google Allo. You can make emojis and text larger or smaller in size by simply dragging the “send” button up or down. Make photos your own by scribbling on them before you send. And we’ve worked with independent artists and studios around the world to create more than 25 custom sticker packs, because sometimes a “sloth riding a pizza” says it all.Meet your personal Google Assistant
In Google Allo you’ll also be introduced to a preview edition of the Google Assistant. With your Assistant in Allo, you can have a conversation with Google — ask it questions and let it help you get things done directly in your chats. You no longer need to leave a conversation with friends just to grab an address, share your favorite

Homebrew 1.0.0

Today I’m proud to announce Homebrew 1.0.0. In the seven years since Homebrew was created by @mxcl our community has grown to almost 6000 unique contributors, a wide-reaching third-party “tap” ecosystem and thousands of packages.

We’ve been working hard over the last year to make some major changes to Homebrew that we’ve been wanting for a long time. There have been some hiccups along the way but we now have a more stable base for using and developing Homebrew in future.

These include:

And finally:

Thanks to all our users, contributors and maintainers past and present for getting us to this milestone. Enjoy using Homebrew!

Google backs off on previously announced Allo privacy feature

When Allo was announced at Google’s I/O conference earlier this year, the messaging app was presented as a step forward for privacy. Alongside the end-to-end-encrypted Incognito Mode, the Allo team talked about bold new message retention practices, storing messages only transiently rather than indefinitely.
But with the release of the app today, Google is backing off on some of those features.
The version of Allo rolling out today will store all non-incognito messages by default — a clear change from Google’s earlier statements that the app would only store messages transiently and in non-identifiable form. The records will now persist until the user actively deletes them, giving Google default access to a full history of conversations in the app. Users can also avoid the logging by using Allo’s Incognito Mode, which is still fully end-to-end encrypted and unchanged from the initial announcement.

A change to improve the Allo assistant
Like Hangouts and Gmail, Allo
