WalmartLabs open sources the application platform that powers Walmart.com

Walmart probably isn’t the first company that comes to mind when you think about open-source software (or the second or third, really), but WalmartLabs, Walmart’s innovation-focused tech division, has already launched a number of open-source projects into the wild. The most interesting of these so far was OneOps, its DevOps platform, but today it is launching a similarly ambitious project.
Over the course of the last year, Walmart.com — a site that handles 80 million monthly visitors and offers 15 million items for sale — migrated to React and Node.js. In the process of this transition, the WalmartLabs team built Electrode, a React-based application platform to power Walmart.com. It’s now open sourcing this platform.
Electrode provides developers with boilerplate code to build universal React apps that consist of a number of standalone modules that developers can choose to add more functionality to their Node apps. These include a tool for managing the configuration of

How we improved Kubernetes Dashboard UI in 1.4 for your production needs​

With the release of Kubernetes 1.4 last week, Dashboard – the official web UI for Kubernetes – has a number of exciting updates and improvements of its own. The past three months have been busy ones for the Dashboard team, and we’re excited to share the resulting features of that effort here. If you’re not familiar with Dashboard, the GitHub repo is a great place to get started.
A quick recap before unwrapping our shiny new features: Dashboard was initially released March 2016. One of the focuses for Dashboard throughout its lifetime has been the onboarding experience; it’s a less intimidating way for Kubernetes newcomers to get started, and by showing multiple resources at once, it provides contextualization lacking in kubectl (the CLI). After that initial release though, the product team realized that fine-tuning for a beginner audience was getting ahead of ourselves: there were still fundamental product requirements that Dashboard

Exfiltrating files with BusyBox

Published Mon, 3rd Oct ’16
This is a super quick post on a simple method to exfiltrate data from systems running BusyBox, a shell commonly used on embedded devices. Such systems often lack common tools, presenting a challenge when you need to move data about. When I first looked into this topic I found solutions which were too specific or complex, so I hope this post is useful.
The BusyBox man page lists commonly available commands, which currently include *deep breath*:

Spot anything interesting? The commands ftpget and ftpput should stand out, and they do exactly what you’d expect. Note that there may not be a symlink to the commands on a given system even if they’re compiled into BusyBox – if running ftpput returns “not found” try busybox ftpput to access the command (the applet in BusyBox parlance).

All you need now is a listening FTP server. Any will do, but I found

IBM’s IoT blockchain service gets ready to roll

A massive DDOS attack and weaknesses in critical systems have put security concerns front and center in the internet of things. IBM thinks a technology best known from the world of bitcoin could lock down at least one use of IoT.
The company is using blockchain technology to ensure that everything’s in order with IoT transactions. Just as a public blockchain makes bitcoin transactions traceable and verifiable, the private, cloud-based system that IBM will operate for enterprises will verify non-monetary interactions between some devices.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Code in the wild to infect millions of IoT devices for crippling DDoS attacks

Oh goody, a hacker dumped source code which could help not overly technical thugs hijack IoT devices in order to launch crippling DDoS attacks.Mirai is the name of the malware that turns insecure IoT gadgets into a botnet. Security journalist Brian Krebs, who found the leaked source code on Hackforums, said Mirai “spreads to vulnerable devices by continuously scanning the internet for IoT systems protected by factory default or hard-coded usernames and passwords.” Krebs, as you likely know, has been a victim of an IoT botnet that launched a record-breaking DDoS attack against his site.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
