DailyDirt: No More Secrets...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The past year has been pretty rough for security -- with Heartbleed, Superfish, remotely hacked cars and all sorts of personal information getting into the wrong hands. Encryption and security are quickly becoming mainstream topics, as it's harder and harder to keep your head in the sand about technology risks. However, perfect security doesn't really exist, but I'm sure we'll have some folks demanding it soon. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

    Re: SteamOS malware

    SteamOS only installs applications from the Steam store. The browser is Webkit based IIRC (same as Chrome) so I doubt that will have many security holes. If any come out, they will quickly be patched. Hopefully this means us Linux users won't get any more malware because of SteamOS :D.
