Q: How many bits of entropy is acceptable?

Linux: > 2000, historically encouraged applications to gather as much entropy as possible, even if it was unneeded and degrades performance.

*BSD: >= 256, Just enough to initialize the kernel CSPRNG.

Tor: was 128, onion v3 moved to 256.

Wi-Fi: 128-bit. WPA3 would support GCM mode with 256-bit.

Bluetooth: 8 bits.

There is a vulnerability in the Plasma desktop that KDE developers are currently working to patch. The details are here.

zdnet.com/article/unpatched-kd

For the moment avoid downloading .desktop or .directory files and extracting archives from untrusted sources.

Also, if you discover a similar vulnerability, it is best to send an email security@kde.org before making it public. This will give us time to patch it and keep users safe before the bad guys try to exploit it.

South Korea is planning Linux migration as Windows 7 support ends.

The interior ministry will begin test-running Linux on its PCs. if no issues arise, Linux systems will be introduced more widely within the government.

They don't mention any specific distro such as Ubuntu, yet in future "hope to avoid building reliance on a single OS" which the case is now with Win7.

Linux ecosystem is flexible / adaptive.
