why the last thing open source needs is more corporate oversight


image: istockphoto/dragonimages according to a new black duck survey, developers can't get enough of open source, ramping up open source adoption by 60% last year. why the uptick? a whopping 84% cited superior cost savings, ease-of-access, and no vendor lock-in.more about open source that same survey, however, would have us believe that developers live in fear of open source, shuddering at open source vulnerabilities exposing their code, open source "infecting" proprietary software, and more. across town, other developers have started creating new, hybrid licenses to help pay the rent for their open source efforts, even as the volume of open source code continues to grow. in other words, something is amiss. we've spent decades wringing our hands over the need for open source review boards

hackerone ceo: the tech industry has some 'catching up to do' on software securi


image: istockphoto/kalawin remember the open source adage that "given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow?" well, open source hasn't quite worked out that way. heartbleed, shellshock, and a host of other security holes have made open source, for all its virtues, look somewhat ordinary when it comes to bugginess and security. at least, that's one way to read the data. according to open source business luminary and hackerone ceo marten mickos, however, open source absolutely has delivered better security than its proprietary peers. perhaps even more important, however, is how open source enables bug bounty programs launched by hackerone and others to be dramatically more successful than they could be in a closed-source context. i recently sat down with mickos to delve into the still emergi






microsoft becomes a sponsor of the open source initiative


microsoft today announced that it has joined the open source initiative (osi) as a premium sponsor. the osi, which launched in 1998, takes a relatively pragmatic approach to open source and advocates for open source in business and government. the osi also reviews open source licenses, which are often vendor specific, to ensure that they conform to “community norms and expectations.”as a premium sponsor, microsoft joins the likes of google, igm, hpe, adblockplus, github and heptio as top sponsors of the project. other sponsors at lower levels include redhat, the linux foundation, mozilla and hp.“the work that open source initiative does is vital to the evolution and success of open source as a first-class element in the software industry. as microsoft engages with open source communities m






huawei p11 and p12 spotted in test pages on huawei.com


huawei’s web design team is getting ready to put up the next p-series flagship and along the way several test pages leaked. they list both huawei p11 and p12, though it’s pretty clear that these are just placeholders.still, that calls into question whether the new model will be called p30 as previously thought. huawei isn’t the only company pondering a new direction for its naming scheme.anyway, the test pages mostly seem to copy huawei ascend mate 7 content so there’s not much to be gleaned from them. you can follow the source links to check them out, but they will probably be taken down before long.source 1 | source 2 | source 3 | via (in dutch)

google launches new site to showcase its open source projects and processes


google is launching a new site today that brings all of the company’s open source projects under a single umbrella.the code of these projects will still live on github and google’s self-hosted git service, of course, with the new site functioning as a central directory for them. while this new project is obviously meant to showcase google’s projects, the company says it also wants to use it to provide “a look under the hood” of how it “does” open source.that last part is actually the most interesting aspect of this new site because google is also publishing a number of its documents about how it does open source internally. “our policies and procedures are informed by many years of experience and lessons we’ve learned along the way,” google writes in today’s announcement. “we know that our






google website contains open source project documentation


google has launched a new site that centralizes information on all of the company’s various open source projects and gives developers details on how it uses, releases and supports open source software.the new opensource.google.com website also contains a complete directory of all of the company’s open source projects together with information on how the projects are being used inside google. the directory lists some 2,000 projects that google’s developers have worked on over the past several years and includes details on some well-known efforts such as tensorflow and kubernetes.“this new site showcases the breadth and depth of our love for open source,” said will norris, a member of google’s open source programs office in a blog. in addition to details on google’s various projects, it “als






google presents its open-source goodies to the world


google lives and dies on open-source software. without linux, there would be no google. the company both uses and makes open-source code every day of the year. in 2017 alone, google has open-sourced chrome for ios; upspin file-sharing; e2email, experimental end-to-end email encryption; and the guetzli jpeg encoder. there's only one problem. how do you find all these projects? google finally has given us the answer: google open source projects.google's made it easy to find almost all their open-source code.in a blog post, will norris, a software engineer at google's open source programs office, wrote: "free and open-source software has been part of our technical and organizational foundation since google's early beginnings. from servers running the linux kernel to an internal culture of bei

researchers find commercial banking apps contain swarms of open-source bugs


symantec open-source projects have long proved a boon for software developers at large, but new research suggests that their use can compromise application security. according to researchers from black duck software, in the firm's 2017 open source security and risk analysis (ossra) report, there are "significant cross-industry risks" in the use of open-source software; namely, vulnerabilities found in such software and components are not being addressed as they should. the burlington, ma-based firm says that due to lax security practices, this also presents a challenge for compliance -- and the results of the audit report should be a "wake-up call" for developers. the new research includes audits of over 1,000 applications commonly used by the enterprise throughout 2016. in total, 96 perce

blackhawks, owner of no. 26 pick, focused on moving up in nhl draft: source


the chicago blackhawks currently hold the no. 26 overall selection in the nhl draft that will be held this weekend at the united center.that could change as, according to a source, the hawks are focused on a trade that will allow them to move up during friday night’s first round. the trade would be made as much to make a splash and entertain the crowd at the arena as it would to bolster the hawks’ prospect pool.the hawks are hosting the nhl draft for the first time and with a large crowd expected at the arena, the source said “there is no way” the team will want to wait until pick no. 26, which would come later in the evening. to that end, the source said the hawks have spoken to several teams about moving up, likely by packaging the 26th pick with another in a later round to select earlie






meizu pro 7 specs leak through source code


there hasn't been much talk about the rumored meizu pro 7 but that may soon change.the people over at gizchina.it have managed to obtain and dig through some source code to extract some interesting specs. those include the deca-core helio x30 chipset and what could prove to be a dual camera on the back.the source code lists the sony imx386 (12mp), the sony imx286 (12mp) modules as well as a samsung s5k368 (16mp front-facing camera). there's also mention of a dual display but we have no idea what to make of that.that's all of the interesting information in the code. the rest of the specs of the meizu pro 7 are part of pure speculation at this point. we expect it to have a 5.2" display with 3d touch technology, 6gb of ram and will surely run on meizu's flyme os over android 6.0 or 7.0.source
