Announcements: Firefox, Virtuozzo, PDF, and more
4 July 2008 1 Comment
There are a variety of interesting announcements that have been floating about.
HP announced that they will sell and support Parallels Virtuozzo (a commercial version of OpenVZ) on Itanium systems running Windows and Linux. What this means for HP-UX VM is unclear at this time.
Adobe’s PDF format has been formalized as a standard, ISO 32000-1. Only time will tell how much of a benefit this will be.
Apple updated MacOS X and MacOS X Server to 10.5.4; time to update your systems. Now would be a good time to check out those security guides for MacOS X (10.3, 10.4, and 10.5) that Apple released early last month.
Also, if you missed it, the security distribution BackTrack released version 3 last month. BackTrack is a live CD Linux distribution focused on security and penetration testing: fix your systems before the attackers do it for you.
