=== Ubuntu Closes Root Hole ===

User crve, of h-online, discusses a security flaw that was fixed
earlier this week.

crve writes, "A flaw in the module pam_motd (message of the day),
which displays the daily motto and other information after login (to
the shell), can be exploited under Ubuntu to expand access rights.
Attackers can exploit this vulnerability to gain root access. Ubuntu
has already provided a patch for the flaw. Operators of multi-users
systems should install it as soon as possible because directions are
already in circulation via Twitter on how to exploit the flaw to get
access rights to the password file /etc/shadow. The file can then not
only be read, but changed.""

crve, also states, "According to the developers, the problem only
occurs on Ubuntu; other Linux systems are reportedly not affected.
Ubuntu has remedied the flaw by taking root rights away from the
module for access to the file motd.legal-notice (under .cache)."

== Launchpad News ==

=== New Launchpad Bugs Status: Opinion ===

From the Launchpad Blog, the new Launchpad bug status "opinion" is
explained. The status 'opinion' means there is a difference of opinion
around a particular bug and people are free to continue the
discussion, but the project or package maintainers need to move to
other work and are considering the issue closed. The idea is that bugs
can be marked closed, so developers arent wasting time on the them,
but discussion can still be on-going. This status 'opinion' is
considered an experiment, and will be closely monitored over the next
3 months.

===  Dell cuddles Canonical ===

Dell is working with Canonincal to provide "Amazon-cloud-ready" Ubuntu
powered servers running on Poweredge C 100, 2100 and 6100 1U-to-4U.
This is an effort by Dell to further move into software
implementations and not just provide hardware. John Igoe, an employee
in Dell's Data Center Solutions Group, has this to say regarding
Canonical's involvement; "Canonical has a credible solution with
people, based on the Eucalyptus and Amazon cloud."

of Canonicals partner engineers.  Stewart says, "Jerome Young, a

=== Patched NotifyOSD Updates: Option To Place The Notifications In
Different Screen Corners, Timeout Fix ===

WebUpd8 writes about the patched NotifyOSD PPA, wchich was updated to
allow further customization. Now you can display notifications in
different corners of the screen and it fixes the time out option. The
GUI configuration tool was not updated so you need to configure the
NotifyOSD position on the screen manually, however WebUpd8 suggests
that users do most of their configuration using the GUI configuration.

=== Using Bazaar on Subversion Repositories ===

Raoul says "Soon after I started developing version 2.0 of OpenLP, we
moved OpenLP over to Launchpad.net and started using Bazaar for our
version control. Over the last (nearly) 2 years of using Bazaar, I've
really come to enjoy working with it, and the workflow that the Bazaar
integration in Launchpad offers. At work we use Subversion for our
version control, and some of Subversion's limitations, compared to
Bazaar's features, have been annoying me for a while. Then I learned
about the Bazaar-Subversion bridge, and I started using Bazaar to
checkout my code from Subversion."

How does it work? Read further on his site to find out:

=== Getting Amarok running in Ubuntu 10.04 ===

In this article, Matthew Casperson shares how to make Amarok 'play
nice' in Ubuntu 10.04. Screenshots, installation instructions, and
instructions on what other software needs to be installed are
meticulously documented. Also, specific tips for setting up Amarok in
gnome and ways to deal with KDE specific challenges. "When discussing
the merits of KDE vs Gnome, Amarok is one of those applications that
gives the KDE guys some ammunition. I don't blame them, because it is
a kick ass media player. But with a few small tweaks you can have
Amarok up and running in your Gnome based Ubuntu desktop as if it were
a native application".
