SCO- Novell Will Go To Trial
The much-anticipated trial in the dispute between SCO and Novell — which was halted when SCO filed for bankruptcy protection — is back on, thanks to the Bankruptcy Court judge.
The decision comes on a month-old motion by Novell to lift the automatic stay — a court order issued automatically when the bankruptcy was filed preventing any existing litigation from proceeding. By lifting the stay, the Bankruptcy judge has given permission for the trial in U.S. District Court in Utah to continue, although any judgment against SCO will be subject to review by the bankruptcy court.
Analysts had long suggested that the Novell trial would be the death knell for SCO, and many believe that the decision to file bankruptcy, which came just days before the trial was to begin, was a desperate move to prevent the annihilation the trial is expected to bring.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
