Linus Torvalds on Why ARM Won’t Win the Server Space

Linus Torvalds: I can pretty much guarantee that as long as everybody does cross-development, the platform won’t be all that stable. Or successful. Some people think that “the cloud” means that the instruction set doesn’t matter. Develop at home, deploy in the cloud. That’s bullshit. If you develop on x86, then you’re going to want to deploy on x86, because you’ll be able to run what you test “at home” (and by “at home” I don’t mean literally in your home, but in your work environment). Which means that you’ll happily pay a bit more for x86 cloud hosting, simply because it matches what you can test on your own local setup, and the errors you get will translate better. This is true even if what you mostly do is something ostensibly cross-platform like just run perl scripts or whatever. Simply because you’ll want to have as similar an environment

Millions of websites threatened by highly critical code-execution bug in Drupal

Enlarge (credit: Victorgrigas)
Millions of sites that run the Drupal content management system run the risk of being hijacked until they’re patched against a vulnerability that allows hackers to remotely execute malicious code, managers of the open source project warned Wednesday.
CVE-2019-6340, as the flaw is tracked, stems from a failure to sufficiently validate user input, managers said in an advisory. Hackers who exploited the vulnerability could, in some cases, run code of their choice on vulnerable websites. The flaw is rated highly critical.
“Some field types do not properly sanitize data from non-form sources,” the advisory stated. “This can lead to arbitrary PHP code execution in some cases.”

Almost a week of no internet at Amherst College

Amherst College experienced a catastrophic technical mishap last week that left the campus without access to online services — for five days.

As IT staff scrambled to fix the problem, faculty and students suddenly found themselves without access to Wi-Fi, email, Moodle, accounting systems, card-scanning systems or any content hosted on the Amherst.edu website.

That a scenario totally inconceivable on most modern campuses occurred at the wealthy private, liberal arts college in Amherst, Mass., was doubly surprising.

“How could this happen?” became a common refrain on campus. How could an elite college with a $2.2 billion endowment and that charges more than $50,000 in tuition a year fail to provide basic services, such as internet access?

With Wi-Fi services down, some students used their cellphone data to tweet their disbelief.

It’s been 4 days. WiFi is still down. Professor can’t teach us anything, and I don’t even have any ways to procrastinate my work. Hell is real
