HEARTBLEED: BOURNE AGAIN?

There’s a new bug in town, and it’s got the internet all of a bother. But is the Bash vulnerability, dubbed ‘Shellshock’ (a piece of code in a really common piece of Linux software), actually Heartbleed: The Second Coming? Unfortunately, bleeding hearts or not, it could still affect you, so if you’re a Linux or […]

I’M ANNOYED – ARE U 2?
