    In my last post, the main issue I looked at was whether you can trust what a Docker-formatted image says about the user it will run as. What we found was that if the ?USER? statement is used in a Dockefile, but is set to a name, you have no idea what UNIX user ID the application in the container will run as. This is because the name could be mapped to any user ID by the UNIX passwd file. Setting

  • Spotify isn't acquiring SoundCloud after all (712 characters)

    Fri, 09 Dec 2016 02:27:00 -0500Spotify isn't acquiring SoundCloud after allEngadget RSS Feed

    Just a couple of months ago, rumors indicated Spotify was negotiating to acquire fellow music streamer SoundCloud. Now, TechCrunch reports hearing from a source that those talks have ended and Spotify is walking away. According to the Financial Times, Spotify has considered this deal twice before and ended negotiations because it couldn't agree on a price.

    This time, however, TechCrunch says the sticking point is due to Spotify's potential IPO plans and the licensing headache that could arise from acquiring SoundCloud's remix-heavy catalog. Of course, if Spotify does go public this year, it's possible the deal could be on the table again afterward.

    LONDON (Reuters) - Large banks in Britain want the UK government to allow their industry to remain subject to EU laws for up to five years after Brexit, a move likely to enrage eurosceptics who want to break away from the bloc's legal system as soon as possible.
