Unpatched Microsoft Word Flaw is Being Used to Spread Dridex Banking Trojan   

If you are a regular reader of The Hacker News, you might be aware of an ongoing cyber attack detected in the wild by McAfee and FireEye that silently installs malware on fully-patched computers by exploiting an unpatched Microsoft Word vulnerability in all current versions of Microsoft Office.

Now, according to security firm Proofpoint, the operators of the Dridex malware started exploiting the unpatched Microsoft Word vulnerability to spread a version of their infamous Dridex banking trojan.

Dridex is currently one of the most dangerous banking trojans on the Internet that exhibits the typical behavior of monitoring a victim's traffic to bank sites by infiltrating PCs and stealing victim's online banking credentials and financial data.

The Dridex actors usually relied on macro-laden Word files to distribute the malware through spam messages or emails.

Microsoft Issues Patches for Actively Exploited Critical Vulnerabilities   

Besides a previously undisclosed code-execution flaw in Microsoft Word, the tech giant patches two more zero-day vulnerabilities that attackers had been exploiting in the wild for months, as part of this month's Patch Tuesday.

ubuntushop now provides tails live session option by default   

Belgium-based Linux laptop vendor, now provides the option to boot into Tails live session by default.

While using such a system can be a pain, but it could be good to have as an option when you want to be discreet. And this is what UbuntuShop is providing.

Manjaro: User-Friendly Arch Linux for Everyone   

Arch Linux has never been known as a user-friendly Linux distribution. In fact, the whole premise of Arch requires the end user make a certain amount of effort in understanding how the system works. Arch even goes so far as to use a package manager (aptly named, Pacman) designed specifically for the platform. That means all that apt-get and dnf knowledge you have doesn't necessarily roll over.

But what about those who want the benefits of Arch Linux, but don't want to have to go through the unwieldy installation? For that, you turn to a distribution like Manjaro. This take on Arch Linux makes the platform as easy to install as any operating system and equally as user-friendly to work with. Manjaro is suited for every level of user from beginner to expert.

The best Linux distro for developers?   

Can there be a best Linux distro for web developers? Or, more generically, let's say can there be a best Linux distro for developers?
A lot of things like the programming language, tools used, support, availability of packages and speed of their update in the repositories and a host of non-functional requirements like the desktop environment, stability come into play to determine the best Linux distro for coding.

A programmer comes into contact with the OS particularly to a higher degree than anybody else. For a programmer, an operating system must turn him/her on. And by 'turn on' I mean create a burning passion to code and make the world a better place.
