During the week of Black Hat and Defcon, tens of thousands of security experts and hackers flock to Las Vegas for the back-to-back conferences. They hold discussions on issues like smart cities getting hacked, two-factor authentication, and security issues with voice assistants. It can all get a little technical. But with so much cybersecurity knowledge in one place, I decided to ask each expert for a single useful cybersecurity tip for the average person. One of these tips may end up being the difference when a hacker comes after you. Learning a little about how to protect yourself is increasingly critical at a time when hackers attack companies like Equifax and Yahoo to expose your personal information. But cybersecurity advice tends to be overly technical or inconvenient, which is why a lot of people tend to ignore it.

News Microsoft Adds JUnit 5 Testing Support, More Java Features to Visual Studio Code Microsoft's Visual Studio Code team has added initial support for the JUnit 5 testing framework, along with other Java functionality via extensions to the open source, cross-platform code editor. Previously, Microsoft added support for JUnit 4 to its Java Test Runner extension.

Specificially, said Program Manager Xiaokai He, developers mentioned JUnit 5 and TestNG, and the team responded by adding functionality for running and debugging test cases and generating test reports for JUnit 5.

Running a small business is no easy task. The last thing you need is extra complexity in your IT infrastructure – so why turn to Linux?Well, it could (if you're lucky) actually turn out to be a less complex choice for many tasks, depending on the distribution you select.

Introduction Note: Our best Linux distro for beginners feature has been fully updated. This article was first published in January 2014.For those folks dipping their toes into Linux waters for the first time, the choice of various distributions or 'flavours' of Linux can be truly overwhelming, especially if you're not sure what to look for.In the early days of Linux, choosing a distribution (distro) was much simpler. You usually selected one you had heard about or with which you had a small amount of experience. There were also far fewer choices beyond Red Hat Linux, Debian and Slackware. While you can still make a choice based on these criteria, the sheer number of Linux distros available now, and their ever vocal fan bases, makes it difficult to settle on one and get started.So let's ignore those voices altogether, and add one of our own. We've deliberately shied away from the popular mainstream distros here, as we didn't just want easy-to-use distros. Instead, we've selected … [Read more...] about What is the best Linux distro for beginners?
