    I thought Id be posting news about Red Dead Revolution 2here this week, but since Rockstar didnt bother announcing a PC version, instead we'll roll withDiablo 4 rumors, Stellaris getting a big story expansion, Watch Dogs 2 needing two extra weeks to hit PC, and Kings Quest finally drawing to a close.

  5. Easy-to-exploit rooting flaw puts Linux PCs at riskFri, 21 Oct 2016 08:58:00 -0700
    The maintainers of Linux distributions are rushing to patch a privilege escalation vulnerability thats already being exploited in the wild and poses a serious risk to servers, desktops and other devices that run the OS.The vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2016-5195, has existed in the Linux kernel for the past nine years. This means that many kernel versions that are used in a variety of computers, servers, routers, embedded devices and hardware appliances are affected.The Red Hat security team describes the flaw as a race condition, in the way the Linux kernels memory subsystem handles the copy-on-write (COW) breakage of private read-only memory mappings. This allows an attacker who gains access to a limited user account to obtain root privileges and therefore take complete control over the system.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

  9. Battlefield 1 review: Satisfying chaos, solemn silenceFri, 21 Oct 2016 05:26:00 -0700
    If history only remembers one in a thousand of us, then the future will be filled with stories of who we were and what we did. How we lived, how we fought, and how we died. When this is all over and the war is won, they will remember us. These solemn lines close out Battlefield 1s campaign, and its as bittersweet a note as I can think to start this review on.Total warfare Because the truth is we havent remembered. Not enough of us, anyway. To put a twist on a Churchill quote, Never has so much been owed by so many to so many. Be it because World War I is too distant a part of our past or because the horror was too great or simply because it was overshadowed by its follow-up twenty years later, the so-called War to end all wars doesnt get nearly the attention it deserves.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...
