openSUSE Leap 42.3 Linux OS Reached End of Life, Upgrade to openSUSE Leap 15.1

The openSUSE Leap 42.3 Linux-powered operating system has reached end of life on June 30th, 2019, which means that it will no longer receive software and security updates.

Released two years ago, on July 26th, 2017, the openSUSE Leap 42.3 operating system was the third maintenance update to the openSUSE Leap 42 series, which is also the last to be based on the SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) 12 operating system series.

openSUSE Leap 42.3 was based on the packages from SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 Service Pack 3 and was powered by the long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel series. It was initially supposed to be supported until January 2019, but the openSUSE and SUSE projects decided to give users more time to upgrade to the major openSUSE Leap 15 series.

Today, six months later, that upgrade window is over and openSUSE Leap 42.3 offi… (read more)

Canonical Fixes Linux Kernel Regression in All Supported Ubuntu Releases

Canonical released today new Linux kernel versions for all supported Ubuntu operating system releases to address a regression introduced by the latest kernel security update.

Last week, Canonical released Linux kernel updates for all supported Ubuntu releases to address several security vulnerabilities discovered by Jonathan Looney in Linux kernel’s TCP retransmission queue implementation when handling some specific TCP Selective Acknowledgment (SACKs).

Known as SACK Panic, these security vulnerabilities affect Ubuntu 19.04, Ubuntu 18.10, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS systems and could allow a remote attacker to crash the affected systems by causing a denial of service by constructing an ongoing sequence of requests.

However, it w… (read more)

Looking For A Deleted Phone On Your iPhone? Try These Apps.

You didn’t mean it but it happened. Your fingers accidentally got on the “delete” icon and a photo just disappeared. If only your iPhone had a safety net like that of a Recycle Bin in your desktop, then you wouldn’t freak out so much. Wait. There probably is a safety net. You just don’t know it yet.

For many people, photos are the single most important content on their iPhone. So losing your photos can be something of a catastrophe.

The good news is that even if you accidentally delete some (or all) of your photos, there are a few ways to get them back.

There’s really no need to despair over a deleted photo on an iPhone. There are a couple of apps that you can use to recover deleted photos. The first of which is the Photos app. This particular app has a “Recently Deleted” folder.

Some people might not realize that Apple provides a “recently deleted” photo folder in the Photos app — think of it like the Recycle Bin on your computer desktop. It holds all the photos that have been deleted for 30 days. On day 31, a deleted photo is deleted permanently — but until then it’s easy to recover.

1. Open the Photos app.
2. Scroll down the list of Other Albums and tap “Recently Deleted.”
3. Tap “Select” at the top right of the screen.
4. Select every photo that you want to return to your iPhone.
5. In the lower right corner, tap “Recover All.”

You can also recover your photos from your backups in iCloud.

If the photos are already gone from the Recently Deleted folder, then you may be able to get your photos back by restoring your phone to a backup.

The disadvantage of this approach is that you will need to replace all the other content on your phone — apps, data, text messages, and so on — with an older backup, which you might not want to do. If the backup you want to restore is fairly recent though, it might be worth it.
