addresses several vulnerabilities. If you haven’t done so already, update
to version 4.9.110-3+deb9u5. See the security
announcement
for details. (Source: Softpedia

Jigsaw, a cyber unit division owned by Google’s parent company Alphabet,
recently introduced Intra, a new app with the goal of protecting users from
state-sponsored censorship. According to TechCrunch,
Intra “aims to prevent DNS manipulation attacks” and that “by passing all
your browsing queries and app traffic through an encrypted connection to a
trusted Domain Name Server, Intra says it ensures you can use your app
without meddling or get to the right site without interference.”

The game Russian Subway Dogs, the “systemic arcade game inspired
by the real life stray dogs of the Moscow metro”, is getting a content
update and also is now supported on Linux. It’s available now on Steam,
itch.io and
Humble
Bundle
for $14.99 USD, and you can view the trailer here.

AT&T
this week is releasing specifications for a cell site gateway router
to the
Open Compute Project. According to the press release, this “white box”
blueprint
will allow any hardware maker to build these routers, which will be
installed at tens of thousands of cell towers during the next several
years. These routers then will “eventually form the infrastructure that
will enable not just phones and tablets to connect to our mobile 5G
network, but new technologies like autonomous cars, drones, augmented
reality and virtual reality systems, smart factories, and more”.
