keepass2 on Debian/Ubuntu: malware infested repo ppa:jtaylor/keepass ?

Reddit - Mon, 2017-11-06 07:59

Used apt-get to install keepass2 from ppa:jtaylor/keepass.

In the process it unnecessarily installed 173 certificates into my truststore, including ones from known dodgy CAs.

Is this a known malware infested repo?

Otherwise I just wanted to make people aware.

I'm going to wipe and re-install Ubuntu 'cos God knows what other crap was installed at the same time.

Debian. Ubuntu and Derivatives

  • Reviving GHDL in Debian

    It has been a few years since Debian last had a working VHDL simulator in the archive. Its competitor Verilog has been covered by the iverilog and verilator simulator packages, but GHDL was the only option for VHDL in Debian and that has become broken, orphaned and was eventually removed. I have just submitted an ITP to make my work on it official.

    A lot has changed since the last Debian upload of GHDL. Upstream development is quite active and it has gained free reimplementations of the standard library definitions (the lack of which frustrated at least two attempts at adoption of the Debian package). It has gained additional backends, in addition to GCC it can now also use LLVM and its own custom mcode (x86 only) code generator. The mcode backend should provide faster compilation at the expense of lacking sophisticated optimization, hence it might be preferable over the other two for small projects.

    This is an security and bugfix update. However, there is also minor feature added to enhance usability. It will be integrated into Lubuntu very soon.

Personally, I don’t like the DE - am I just in the minority or is there another reason to use Gnome?

  • OpenStack to tackle open source integration

    The OpenStack Foundation made its announcement, kicking off the OpenStack Summit currently running in Sydney at the Darling Harbour International Convention Centre.

  • OpenStack Summit Sydney Spotlights Open Infrastructure Integration
  • OpenStack says its work is largely done. Now your hard work can fill in the blanks

    The OpenStack Foundation has kicked off its summit in Sydney, Australia, with a call to current OpenStack users to help it to win more users by sharing code they've written to link OpenStack to other tools and infrastructure.

    The Foundation's decided the time is right to pursue easier integration because it feels the core of OpenStack is in good shape: its myriad modules are felt to be nicely mature and to offer the functionality that users need and want.

  • OpenStack’s next mission: bridging the gaps between open source projects

    OpenStack, the massive open source project that provides large businesses with the software tools to run their data center infrastructure, is now almost eight years old. While it had its ups and downs, hundreds of enterprises now use it to run their private clouds and there are even over two dozen public clouds that use the project’s tools. Users now include the likes of AT&T, Walmart, eBay, China Railway, GE Healthcare, SAP, Tencent and the Insurance Australia Group, to name just a few.

    “One of the things that’s been happening is that we’re seven years in and the need for turning every type of infrastructure into programmable infrastructure has been proven out. “It’s no longer a debate,” OpenStack COO Mark Collier told me ahead of the projects semi-annual developer conference this week. OpenStack’s own surveys show that the project’s early adopters, who previously only tested it for their clouds, continue to move their production workflows to the platform, too. “We passed the hype phase,” Collier noted.
