Windows CE On A Raspberry Pi

From all the BSDs and Linuxes to extraordinarily odd operating systems, it seems just about every OS has been ported to the Raspberry Pi. All except Windows, that is, but a few people are working on it.

This build comes to us from [ideeman] who wanted to show off his Raspi running Windows Compact Embedded. It technically works, but there are still a few problems.

Weird PHP-poking Linux worm slithers into home routers, Internet of Things

Symantec has stumbled across a worm that exploits various vulnerabilities in PHP to infect Intel x86-powered Linux devices. The security biz says the malware threatens to compromise home broadband routers and similar equipment.

However, home internet kit with x86 chips are few and far between – most network-connected embedded devices are powered by ARM or MIPS processors – so the threat seems almost non-existent.

Marshmallow Entertainment System (Raspberry Pi)

Back when I was a kid, I decided I wanted to make my own game console. Granted I also wanted to be an astronaut and the first man on Mars, but I had to draw the line somewhere.

Marshmallow Game Engine started as a way for me to keep my cross-platform game engine chops up during my spare time (not that I have that much spare time mind you). But with the advent of both powerful and affordable hardware like the Raspberry Pi, I started looking into creating my own game console again, and I have to admit, I’m very excited.

Thanks to the wonderful Raspberry Pi, I’m finally able to create an affordable DYI console kit for my game engine.

Raspberry Pi gets a turbo mode

You can now choose from one of five overclock presets in raspi-config, the highest of which runs the ARM at 1GHz. The level of stable overclock you can achieve will depend on your specific Pi and on the quality of your power supply; we suggest that Quake 3 is a good stress test for checking if a particular level is completely stable. If you choose too high an overclock, your Pi may fail to boot, in which case holding down the shift key during boot up will disable the overclock for that boot, allowing you to select a lower level.

MPEG2 on a Pi

From today, you’ll be able to purchase an MPEG-2 decode licence which will be tied to your Raspberry Pi’s unique serial number.

Android Phones Will Power NASA Satellites

Debian turns 19

Debian, one of the oldest actively maintained GNU/Linux distributions, turns 19 today. Project founder Ian Murdock originally announced the project on 16 August 1993 when he released the first version of the distribution. Looking back at that email, a surprising number of Murdock's initial goals for the project are still reflected in Debian today, despite the fact that the distribution has gone through regular leadership changes since Murdock left the project in 1996.

WikiLeaks: Our site's been hit by weeklong attack

The secret-busting organization WikiLeaks says it's been the victim of a sustained denial-of-service attack which has left its website sluggish or inaccessible for more than a week.

In a statement released late Saturday the group said the assault intensified around the beginning of August and has since expanded to include attacks against affiliated sites. Denial-of-service attacks work by overwhelming websites with requests for information. WikiLeaks has said it's been flooded with 10 gigabits per second of bogus traffic from thousands of different Internet addresses.

I Was a Teenage Hacker

Life as a hacker before hacking—or the Internet itself, for that matter—was mainstream might seem thrilling, even glamorous. And to hear writer, developer, and Stack Overflow kingpin Jeff Atwood tell it, in a lot of ways it kinda was.

This Guy Stomps Out 3G Hotspots at the Olympics

Portable Wi-Fi hotspots, powered by 3G, are banned at all the Olympic venues in London. But while that might sound like a hollow threat, this man makes sure it isn't, by sniffing out rogue Wi-Fi networks and shutting them down.

Chromium OS for Raspberry Pi – first look

This is quite some way from being usable, so don’t get too excited, but I wanted to share where I’m up to with porting Chromium OS to the Raspberry Pi.

Microsoft adds sexist Big Boobs to Linux kernel

Microsoft has contributed thousands of lines of code to the Linux kernel, the open source software at the heart of the widely used Linux operating system. And now, the software giant has contributed some controversy too.

Sometime over the past few years, as Microsoft beefed up the Linux kernel with code related to its Hyper-V virtualisation software, one unidentified developer needed a name for a piece of code used by the software, and for some unknown reason, he went with this: 0xB16B00B5.

Raspberry Pi left earth

In early May I received my first Raspberry Pi computer, and having flown several high altitude balloons before I thought about using one as a flight computer. In almost all of my previous flights I used Arduino Mini Pro boards, and these are ideal – tiny, weigh almost nothing, simple and need very little power...

RISC OS on Raspberry Pi

You can download the image created by Chris Hall, which he updates regularly. Beware of glitches – this is the first ever RISC OS image for Raspberry Pi, and while there will surely be more complete and reliable images in the future, this is fun to play with for now.

Flame malware makers send 'suicide' code

The creators of the Flame malware have sent a "suicide" command that removes it from some infected computers.
Security firm Symantec caught the command using booby-trapped computers set up to watch Flame's actions.
Flame came to light after the UN's telecoms body asked for help with identifying a virus found stealing data from many PCs in the Middle East.
