WireGuard VPN makes it to 1.0.0—and into the next Linux kernel

We’ve been anticipating WireGuard’s inclusion into the mainline Linux kernel for quite some time—but as of Sunday afternoon, it’s official. Linus Torvalds released the Linux 5.6 kernel, which includes (among other things) an in-tree WireGuard. Phoronix has a great short list of the most interesting new features in the 5.6 kernel, as well as a longer “everything list” for those who want to make sure they don’t miss anything.
If this is the first time you’re hearing about WireGuard, the TL;DR is that it’s a relatively new VPN (Virtual Private Network) application that offers a leaner codebase, easier configuration, faster connect times, and the latest and most thoroughly peer-reviewed and approved encryption algorithms. You can find a more detailed introduction in our initial August 2018 coverage.
Can I use this on Windows? Mac? BSD?

Raspberry Pi 4 Linux computer gets twice the RAM and USB-C power fix

The Raspberry Pi line has provided great little Linux computers to nerds — its low price and small size makes it ideal for tinkering and doing projects. But also, the device has proven to be a solid media device, wonderful for watching videos and emulating classic video games. In other words, it has been a very versatile computer, serving as many things to many people. With the release of the Raspberry Pi 4, however, it finally became powerful enough to serve as a true desktop computer. By installing a Linux distribution, some people can use it for day-to-day computer use,… [Continue Reading]

Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS released Wednesday—here’s what’s new

This Wednesday, the current Ubuntu LTS (Long Term Service) release—Bionic Beaver—launched its fourth maintenance update.
Ubuntu is one of the most predictable operating system distributions in terms of its release cycle—a new version is launched in April and October of each year. Most of these are interim releases, supported for a single year from launch; but the April release of each even-numbered year is an LTS, supported for five years. LTS releases also get maintenance releases as necessary, typically about every three to six months during the support cycle of the LTS.
Today’s release, 18.04.4, is one of those maintenance releases. It’s not as shiny and exciting as entirely new versions, of course, but it does pack in some worthwhile security and bugfix

Serious sudo flaw could be exploited to gain root access to Linux systems

Details of a nine-year-old security vulnerability with the sudo utility found in numerous Unix and Linux based operating systems have been revealed. The flaw, which affects the likes of Linux Mint and Elementary OS, could be exploited to give users root privileges on a vulnerable system. Sudo versions 1.7.1 to 1.8.30 are at risk if the pwfeedback option is enabled.

Linus Torvalds pulled WireGuard VPN into the 5.6 kernel source tree

Enlarge / It’s not likely to be an accident that “add WireGuard” is number one on this list. (credit: Jim Salter)
Yesterday, Linux creator Linus Torvalds merged David Miller’s net-next into his source tree for the Linux 5.6 kernel. This merger added plenty of new network-related drivers and features to the upcoming 5.6 kernel, with No.1 on the list being simply “Add WireGuard.”
As previously reported, WireGuard was pulled into net-next in December—so its inclusion into Linus’ 5.6 source tree isn’t exactly a surprise. It does represent clearing another potential hurdle for the project; there is undoubtedly more refinement work to be done before the kernel is finalized, but with Linus having pulled it in-tree, the likelihood that it will disappear between now and 5.6’s final release (expected sometime in May or early June) is vanishingly small.
WireGuard’s Jason Donenfeld is also contributing AVX crypto optimizations to the kernel outside the WireGuard

How to Setup FEMP Stack (FreeBSD, Nginx, MySQL 8 and PHP 7.4) on FreeBSD 12

FEMP is an acronym that stands for FreeBSD (operating system), Nginx (HTTP server pronounced Engine-x), MySQL (database server), and PHP (programming language to process dynamic PHP content). In this tutorial, we’ll set up components of a FEMP stack on a FreeBSD 12.1 server using pkg, the FreeBSD package manager.
