JBIG-KIT implements a highly effective data compression algorithm for bi-level high-resolution images such as fax pages or scanned documents. It provides a portable C library of compression and decompression functions with a documented interface that can easily be included into image or document processing software. In addition, JBIG-KIT provides ready-to-use compression and decompression programs with a simple command line interface (similar to the converters found in netpbm). It implements the specification ISO 11544 and ITU-T T.82, which is commonly referred to as the "JBIG1 standard".

Release Notes: This is a security-critical bugfix release which remains API and ABI backwards-compatible to
version 2.0.

Users who decompress JBIG data from untrusted sources should upgrade.

It fixes a buffer overflow vulnerability in the jbig.c decoder (CVE-2013-6369),
a bug in the way jbig.c processes the option DPPRIV=1 (not usually used in practice),
and the ability of a specially-crafted input file to force the jbig85.c decoder
into an endless loop.

Geekly Group Welcomes Rishi Imrit to Their Digital Media Web Development Team

Digital Media, Data Analytics, Web Development, and Graphic Design

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 30, 2013

Geekly Group, LLC, a full service provider of digital media managed service solutions, announces the addition of Rishi Raaj Imrit. Rishi joins Geekly Group’s web development team, and is an accomplished programmer with over 7 years of technical experience. His focus revolves around the Drupal content management system, where he builds powerful websites and web applications.

Apart from Drupal, Rishi is also adept at other open source frameworks and programming languages such as PHP, MySQL, jQuery, HTML, C# and Ruby. Node.js is another programming language that fuels Rishi’s inner geek, as he is fascinated by real time web interaction.

Beyond programming, Rishi is also involved with cryptography and computer security. In his past endeavors, he has been responsible for programming a complex anti-hacking solution protecting the backend of a web-based CRM platform.

“I could not be more pleased about having Rishi join our team of digital media geeks,” an excited Trent Livingston, CEO of Geekly Group, proclaimed. “We were searching for a web developer that clearly understood what the more advanced web content management systems have to offer. While there are many great web developers out there, we were looking for someone that was the right fit for our group. Rishi just clicked with the team. He understands our firm’s goal that, as a managed services based organization, we are here to make things easier for our clients, not more complex.”

Throughout his career, Rishi has built different systems based on PHP, ASP.NET, WordPress and Symphony. Managing CENTOS and UBUNTU server has become an everyday way of life for Rishi. His development activities make him responsible for building new servers from scratch and installing all the components that are required to run the myriad of web services he supports.

When asked about his new role, Rishi replied, “I’m very happy to be the newest geek in the group. It is great to be part of an organization that works with the many facets of internet marketing, like social media, graphic design, SEO and web development.”

Apart from programming, Rishi also does voice overs, video direction, music & video effects, and has been a singer for short movies, as well as helping other musicians record their music.

Ubuntu 14.04 drastically improves gaming on a MacBook

For a couple of years, Valve has been saying that, when properly optimized, games run faster on Linux than on Windows. Granted, the company hyped Linux — most notably, Ubuntu — for quite some time because its upcoming Steam Machine was set to use Linux as its operating system of choice, as Valve tried to forego Windows.

How to add extra packages to Ubuntu install CD using kickstart

I used kickstart to automate Ubuntu12.04 alternate iso installation. I am able to automate the installation. Now I want to install some extra packages such as teamviewer during OS installation. But the problem is that it cannot be installed online. I want to add these packages to install CD and install those packages during installation itself.

Does anyone know how to do this?Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

Zorka 1.0.1

Zorka is a sophisticated programmable profiling/monitoring agent for Java suitable for running with production applications. The agent integrates seamlessly with popular monitoring systems and protocols (Zabbix, Nagios, syslog, SNMP) and offers additional tracing/profiling capabilities that – along with the accompanying data collector – help with spotting performance issues and general problems. The agent also exposes JMX data to conventional monitoring systems. Platforms (more or less) supported out of the box include: JBoss 4/5/6/7, Wildfly 8, Tomcat 6/7/8, Jetty 6/7/8/9, Websphere, Weblogic, GlassFish 4.0, WSO2 ESB, Mule ESB, and Jasig CAS. There is also dedicated support for the popular Java libraries Spring, Quartz, CXF, and Axis 1.x. The agent should run on most other platforms with limited functionalities (that is, lack of support for platform-specific features). It works with JDK6, JDK7, and JDK8. JDK5 support is also possible after preprocessing the agent binary with retrotranslator. Functionality can be easily added by implementing simple BSH scripts.

Release Notes: This release brings some bugfixes and host grouping functionality for ZICO collector.
