.:: Kibana ::.

"Kibana is a user friendly way to view, search and visualize your log data

Kibana is an open source (MIT License), browser based interface to Logstash and ElasticSearch. Once you have those in place, Kibana is a breeze to install and configure (really, I swear). And as you'll see below, none too hard to operate. Check out the screenshots for an idea of what Kibana is all about."

Or in other words Kibana together with Elasticsearch is the open source Splunk. ;)

.:: Diesel aus Darmbakterien ::.

"Gentechnisch veränderte Darmbakterien können Dieselkraftstoff herstellen. Dies haben britische Forscher in Laborversuchen gezeigt. Das Besondere an dem Verfahren ist, dass der Kraftstoff der Bakterien mit herkömmlichen fossilen Kraftstoffen chemisch identisch ist. Er könnte somit direkt eingesetzt werden, ohne dass zum Beispiel Automotoren angepasst werden müssten, schreiben die Forscher in den "Proceedings of the National Akademy of Sciences". Allerdings befinde sich das Verfahren noch in einem frühen Stadium der Entwicklung."

.:: Flugzeug Hacking ::.

Jetzt wirds wirklich gruselig!

"The lack of security in communication technologies used in the aviation industry makes it possible to remotely exploit vulnerabilities in critical on-board systems and attack aircraft in flight, according to research presented Wednesday at the Hack in the Box security conference in Amsterdam.
The presentation, by Hugo Teso, a security consultant at consultancy firm N.runs in Germany, who has also had a commercial pilot license for the past 12 years, was the result of the researcher's three-yearlong research into the security of avionics."
