In issue 5 of Linux Voice we turn attacker and look at the way hackers are exploiting weaknesses in websites. Terrify yourself with how simple it is to execute an SQL injection attack, cower in the the face of cross-site scripting, then laugh in the face of danger because now you know how hackers work, you can beat them.
Take an exclusive first look at the Raspberry Pi Compute module, the new release from the Raspberry Pi Foundation, unearth (probably) the best game of all time (NetHack), peer back in time to the birth of BASIC and examine the benefits of Python 3.
Never wait for your distribution to package software again, with our guide to compiling from source code; build games for kids with Scratch, fix bugs for cash (or maybe just give yourself an incentive to polish up your programming skills) and write your own web search engine to beat Google at its own game. Get all this plus reviews of Mint 17, XMBC, MythTV, tutorials, distros and more. Click the PDF below to see what we’ve crammed into the issue!
