Gaming on Linux   

What's the Achilles' heel for Linux users?

Ubuntu 17.04, the upcoming release of Ubuntu Linux, has been codenamed Zesty Zapus. The release schedule of Ubuntu 17.04 is out.

Anyone running an older version of the Android operating system, be warned: Malware is infecting 13,000 Android devices every day, putting at risk the private details of more than 1 million Google accounts.

That's according to cybersecurity software company Check Point, which discovered a new piece of malware called "Gooligan" that's infecting Android phones and stealing email addresses.

Users who download Gooligan-infected apps or click links in phishing messages are being exposed to the malware, which allows attackers to access sensitive information from Google apps like Gmail, Drive, and Photos.
