Java is one of the very first software mobile devices were built on but as technology develops, Androids took over as it's very prevalent in most devices recently produced by all phone companies. iOS is booming up as well. 

Between Java and Androids, which one do you prefer and what's your reason?

  Favorite Mobile Game
Posted by: NoviceNinja - 11-02-2018, 06:21 AM - Forum: Games - Replies (3)

My favorite mobile game of all time is CLASH OF CLANS. It is a freemium mobile strategy video game developed and published by Finnish game developer Supercell. The objective is to upgrade your buildings and gain loots from enemy bases by attacking them. There are tons of things to do in-game like interacting with other players, joining war events, enhancing your heroes, and a whole lot more. I was addicted to it two years ago, and I must say that it is one of the most enjoyable periods of my life.

How about you guys? What is your favorite mobile game? Please do share your thoughts. Thanks!

  Using PHP 5 Becomes Dangerous in 2 Months
Posted by: xz3r0 - 10-30-2018, 05:17 PM - Forum: Advisories - No Replies

PHP version 5 is widely used by WordPress and many other web applications today.

PHP 5 will reach end-of-life in 2 months. 

That means it will no longer receive security updates. 

A new vulnerability could be catastrophic for sites that do not migrate to the newer version of PHP. 

WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and many other popular website CMSs were written in a programming language called PHP. PHP version 5 is about to reach end-of-life and will stop receiving security updates in two months. Many WordPress and other PHP websites remain on version 5.6 or older. Once support for PHP 5 ends in two months, these sites are in a precarious position and will become exploitable as new PHP 5 vulnerabilities emerge without security updates.

What is End-Of-Life or ‘EOL’ in Software?

When a software product reaches EOL, it is no longer supported by software developers. That means that, even if someone finds a security hole in the software, the developers will not fix it.

If a development team is productive, they will release many versions of the software they work on over time. It becomes impractical to support every version of the code ever released. 

So a compromise needs to be made.

This compromise is that the development team will only support their software for a certain amount of time. After that time has elapsed, the development team suggests that the user community upgrade to a newer version of the same software, which usually does things better than the old versions and is fully supported.

Is PHP Version 5  going to be EOL soon?

Yes. PHP version 5 will be declared End-Of-Life on January 1st, 2019. That is, in approximately two months at the time of writing.

The PHP development team’s policy with regards to end-of-life is as follows: each release of PHP is fully supported for two years from the date of release. Then it is supported for an additional year for critical security issues only. Once three years has elapsed from the date of release, the version of PHP is no longer supported.

PHP 7.0, the very first PHP 7 release, was released on 3 December, 2015, almost three years ago. PHP version 5 is rapidly approaching end-of-life and will no longer be supported starting on 1 January, 2019.

The final branch of PHP version 5 that is still supported is PHP 5.6. Because this is the final PHP 5 branch, the PHP team chose to extend the security fix period from the usual one years, to two years. That extended security support will end on 1 January 2019.

The following table includes the important dates for PHP 5 and PHP 7 branches. You can find this table on this page on the PHP website.

Why Should I Upgrade to PHP 7?

As mentioned above, PHP 5 will no longer be supported with security fixes, starting on 1 January 2019. That means that even if a vulnerability is discovered, it won’t be fixed, leaving your website vulnerable.

PHP 7 has many improvements over PHP version 5. These include performance improvements. PHP 5 has many known bugs that relate to performance, memory usage and more. PHP 7 is actively supported and developers are therefore able to implement those improvements and make your website run faster, be more stable and use your expensive resources more efficiently.

As an added benefit, PHP 7 also allows the use of more modern programming structures, which is a nice benefit for software developers.

Which specific version of PHP 7 should I upgrade to?

Ideally, you should upgrade to PHP 7.2 which is the newest version of PHP. This version will be fully supported for another year and will receive security updates for a year after that.

If you are unable to upgrade to 7.2, then at a minimum you should upgrade to PHP 7.1. Full support for PHP 7.1 will end in 1 month. However, you will continue to receive security updates for another year after that.

Do not upgrade to PHP 7.0. This version will also become end-of-life in one month.

Does PHP 5 have any vulnerabilities?

Security vulnerabilities are continuously reported in PHP. Some of these are serious. Viewing this page on CVEDetails.com will give you an idea of the volume and severity of PHP vulnerabilities that have recently been reported.

Many of the vulnerabilities reported in PHP were discovered this year. Many more will be discovered in PHP version 5 next year, after security support for all versions of PHP 5 have ended. That is why it is critically important that you upgrade to a version of PHP 7 that is supported and is receiving security updates.

Will anything break if I update to PHP 7.2?

You may discover incompatibilities that need to be fixed by a developer if you update to PHP 7.2. PHP has undergone some changes since version 5 which has improved the language and made it more secure, but may result in warnings or errors for code that has not been made compatible with PHP 7.

If you are a WordPress user, WordPress core is fully compatible with PHP 7.2 and greater.

However, it is very important that you make sure that your themes and plugins are also compatible with PHP 7.2. If you are using an unmaintained theme or plugin, you may encounter warnings or errors due to incompatibilities. For this reason, we recommend you test your website on a hosting account or server that is running PHP 7.2. If you encounter any problems, contact the developer of the theme or plugin and ask them for an urgent fix. Remind them that PHP 5.6 reaches end-of-life in just two months and that you must update to PHP 7.2 by then.

This page has a migration guide for PHP developers who are migrating code from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7.
This page has a list of deprecated functions under PHP 7.2 and will be helpful to a developer that is migrating code from PHP 5 to PHP 7.

Brick Log in with an SSH private key on Linux and Mac
Posted by: xz3r0 - 10-26-2018, 07:27 AM - Forum: Linux Servers - No Replies

This example below demonstrates how to use a private key to log in to a Linux server by using a private key by using a Terminal session on OS X.

However, you can follow the same process to use a private key when using any terminal software on Linux.


To complete this process, you need the following software applications:

  • ssh - SSH client software is installed on your Linux or OS X operating system by default

  • text editor - This example uses the vim text editor.
Log in with a private key
  1. Using a text editor, create a file in which to store your private key. This example uses the file key.txt.

  2. To edit the file in vim, type the following command
  1. vim key.txt
  2. After the editor starts, press i to turn on insert mode.
  3. Paste the private key into the file. Be sure to include the BEGIN and END lines.
Code:
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
....
....
....
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----


  1. To save your changes, press Esc.
  1. Type :wq to write the file and return to the command line.
  1. Run the following command to change the file permissions to 600 to secure the key. 
  1. You can also set them to 400. This step is required: 

Code:
chmod 600 key.txt

  1. Use the key to log in to the SSH client as shown in the following example, which loads the key in file key.txt, and logs in as user demo, to addess gigebox.com:

Code:
ssh -i key.txt demo@gigebox.com

  1. When the prompt to confirm the connection request is displayed, type yes and then press Enter.
  1. If your SSH key requires a password, enter it when prompted to complete the connection.

Streamtech Systems Technologies owned by Manny Villar was given the green light by President Rodrigo Duterte by granting the new telco company a 25 year telco operating franchise.  It seems the Villar Group is gunning for the grand prize which is to win in the bid to become the Philippines third Telco company and that translates into billions of dollars of earnings per year.  Streamtech is now looking for a foreign telco partner which has a minimum of 10 years operational track record as it is one of the requirements.

I think that virtual reality would play a big part / a major role in the future of gaming.  The recent film Ready Player One which deals with virtual augmented reality is a good film that could very well predicted what gaming would be in the next 20 years.  

What kind of innovations do you think the future of gaming would have?
