You may have heard that a vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptographic library called Heartbleed or formally called CVE-2014-0160 has been disclosed and that it represents a potential security threat to a large number of websites. Using this vulnerability, malicious individuals could access sensitive information submitted by people actively visiting a website including usernames, passwords and credit card numbers. Users across the Internet should be especially aware of suspicious activity on their accounts.
We want to communicate a couple pieces of information about this news with regard to Drupal.org.
Members of the Drupal Association staff, Drupal Security Team and Drupal Infrastructure Team have reviewed Drupal.org’s potential exposure to the vulnerability.
As of now, we have no indication that Drupal.org was attacked using this vulnerabililty. That said, the nature of the vulnerability makes an attack difficult to detect and we prefer to be cautious.
We have taken steps to protect users of Drupal.org, including a forced password reset for users with administrative access or access to code repositories for projects. While we have only forced the password reset for some users, we recommend that all of our users change their passwords.
We have taken the following steps to protect Drupal.org account holders:
Also, we simply want to help create awareness about the vulnerability and encourage people to review their sites for exposure. For more information, please see https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2014-0160
Feel free to comment on the post with any questions. Thank you!

What is Bodega?
First off, let’s find out what Bodega is all about. Aaron explains:
The most important thing is of course the ‘digital asset’ term. That can be anything. For example, applications. Applications can be self contained – think how android does its APK files. Of course, things on Linux are often more complicated. Apache isn’t exactly a self-contained thing. And look further – perl, php, ruby, they all have their own addons like gems that need managing. Generalizing further, there are manuals. And books in general. Music, movies, pictures, you can go on.
Of course, the competition has these too – look at Apple or Google.
And how about Linux…
Linux does not have a store where you can get such a wide variety of things. For a game, you can use Appstream, get it from Apper or GNOME’s software center. They all give a view on applications. Unfortunately, that is only useful for desktops and can handle things barely above the level of Angry Birds. If you want a python module as developers – these fancy tools won’t help you. Nor are they useful on servers. For those you have to rely on command line tools or even do things completely by hand. And it is all different between distributions.
How is Bodega different?
So, Bodega offers a digital store which can handle a wider variety of things than our current solutions. But what sets it apart from proprietary technologies like the Playstore and of course Canonical’s store solution? Aaron:
Bodega has all the meta data in one place and offers ‘stores’ which are views on that data. That means you can have a software developer store, for example listing all languages and their addons separate; and a server section etc. And a separate UI for the angry-bird-and-spreadsheet crowd. All from the same bodega system, filtered by tags (not static categories!).
Talking about Appstream, Bodega can of course benefit from the metadata gathered for Appstream. And GNOME’s Software Center could be reworked to be a front-end to Bodega, adding books, music and lots of other digital data to its store. This is not meant to be a rewrite of what is there, or an isolated effort!
And why would you build on Bodega?
Bodega is open: everybody can quite easily add their own stores; or their own data sources; and add content and even sell it through their channels. It is not a closed system, on the contrary.
Open is a must, especially for Linux:
And Bodega is useful for people outside of Linux. You can have your store on your own website so it is realistically possible for a independent author to sell their books in a bodega instance on their own website and never even SEE Linux. Yet the openSUSE users can get the books and benefit from the larger ecosystem…
You might be eager to find out what is there, today. Well, if you’ve seen the screenshots to the side, you know there is an app to access the store. It is build for touch screens but works just fine and you can get it in openSUSE through software.opensuse.org. Once installed, you can fire it up typing “active-addons” in a run command dialog.
Shawn Dunn (of cloverleaf fame) is putting together a more traditional desktop UI, while maintaining these packages as well. You will be able to have a conversation with him as he’s going to be at the openSUSE Conference in Dubrovnik this month where he will present a session about Bodega! He is known as SFaulken online and pretty much always hangs in the #opensuse-kde channel on Freenode where you can ask how to get things running or how to help him break stuff anytime. He’s also yelling at the world on google plus.
Bodega now contains the entire book set of Project Gutenberg (thousands of awesome, free books) as well as a number of wallpapers and applications. Aaron:
