GitHub adds Python support for security alerts – Help Net Security

This is good, as a developer is a PITA to follow all the dependencies your app have. There are several tools to keep them up to date (updating your requirements.txt file) for future builds/updates of your app. But sometimes we just don’t follow the security flaws.

GitHub’s Security Alerts now also work for Python projects, notifying developers about vulnerabilities in software packages that their projects depend on.

Una rayita mas al tigre: las coaliciones son un asco

El sistema electoral mexicano es un asco y lo digo esta vez por las llamadas “coaliciones”. ¿Cuál es su proposito?, en mi opinión, solo mantener a flote a partidos políticos que no tienen la fortaleza o un canditado lo suficientemente popular para obtener el mínimo de votos necesarios para mantenerse a flote.

Tambien creo que sirven para generar incertidumbre entre los votantes sobre como aplicar el voto, tan así que a estas alturas muchos no saben como votar y en varios medios se trata de aclarar este problema: read more

#Apple have a #serious 2FA issue

I have two factor authentication for my Apple ID, the problem is that any device with my Apple ID is able to get the code for the 2FA, so, if I try to log in in the computer it will prompt the code… in the same computer I’m trying to log in !!!

To me this is an issue, what’s the point of having 2FA if the code appears right in the device where I’m trying to log in?. It must appear on any other device except the one I have in front of me.

Would making drugs “legal” in our country do something better?

TLDR; Yes, with some caveats.

Long Story, well in many places they are illegal, there are some permissible laws that allows you to use them for either medical or entertainment at certain places, the purpose of this is to reduce the demand, supply and risk for users.

The problem in a country like Mexico is how people is educated. Just like beer, many Mexicans use to go every Friday to the liquor store (Oxxo) and get a couple (maybe more) of six-pack of their favourite beer and get drunk as hell.

Maybe with some more education we can make what we do now with tobacco, where it’s  allowed in “ventilated places”, restaurants, coffee shops or anything closed is now allowed except bars which of obvious reasons it’s allowed. read more

GIMP now hosted by GNOME on GitLab

Many projects are now migrating from github to #GitLab, this is not because GitHub is a bad service, it’s just because its being acquired by Microsoft.

Even when the official statement says that GitHub will operate independent and with the same policies used right now, many (me included) don’t trust Microsoft. then.. the need to move away from GitHub.

GNOME already made the transition and GIMP is now in GitLab. Are you moving your projects?. Do you think GitHub will finish like Skype did?. read more

What would you do if Microsoft acquires GitHub??

Quite probably you have a repo in GitHub, and probably the company you work for does too. Aside from the fact that they have to stick with the terms and policies that already govern GitHub, what would you do ?.

For many Linux/OpenSource users this is a dilemma, Microsoft is the “enemy” because for so many years Microsoft tried to kill Linux and now is using it in their cloud offering just because no-one beats Linux in the server (or VPS or whatever the fuck buzz-name you choose), and it seems they like to embrace-extend-extinguish Linux. read more
