News this week on the Pi World

safe Pi

Today I have been tempted and bought an iPhone 6. After three years with the version 4 I needed a renewal, mostly because my wife will inherit it and I do not like Android operating system. Hopefully someday iOS could be installed in other Smartphones. Moreover, in this section we'll see how to open a safe "by the face", Perforce (another Dropbox killer) and learn what the hell it Shellshock vulnerability.


  • Security camera with face recognition: A good weekend project to have a safe that is opened recognizing your face. Code available on GitHub if you want to modify it for other purposes. | Makezine.com

  • Shellshock, learn to avoid it: In short, it is a vulnerability in the Shell Bash that takes advantage of global variables. For a user like you and me it's not a big deal, but for servers and big business can endanger a lot of valuable information. If you want to know if your computer is vulnerable, run the following:


env x='() { :;}; echo vulnerable' bash -c "echo this is a test"

If you get an error, your computer is safe.

To fix it:


apt-get update && apt-get upgrade bash?
