How to check for SSL POODLE / SSLv3 bug? How to fix Nginx?
Image/photo

Google has just disclosed SSL POODLE vulnerability which is a design flaw in SSLv3. Since it is a design flaw in the protocol itself and not an implementation bug, there will be no patches. Only way to mitigate this is to disable SSLv3 in your web server or application using SSL.

Respectful Software
Yet Another Me " Post: Respectful Software

The question, strange as it may sound, is not only valid but also becoming more and more important these days. If you think that the four freedoms are enough to guarantee that the Free Software will respect the user, you are probably being oversimplistic. The four freedoms are essential, but they are not sufficient.

Nationwide fast-food chain Dairy Queen on Thursday confirmed that malware installed on cash registers at some 395 stores resulted in the theft of customer credit and debit card information.

MySQL compression: Compressed and Uncompressed data size
MySQL compression: Compressed & Uncompressed data size
Image/photo

by Peter Zaitsev MySQL has information_schema.tables that contain information such as "data_length" or "avg_row_length." Documentation on this table however is quite poor, making an assumption that those fields are self explanatory - they are not when it comes to tables that employ compression. And this is where inconsistency is born.

Migration between MySQL/Percona Server and MariaDB

This week we did some migrations from MariaDB 10.0 to Percona Server 5.6 at the IT department of a big German bank. We were perfectly aware that since version 10.0 the MariaDB code base started to diverge slightly away from the MySQL and Percona Server code base which are still pretty close to each other.
