Visualising data as a PGM image

LXer Linux News - Tue, 08/03/2021 - 16:23
An ASCII PGM file ("Portable Gray Map") is a simple text file that encodes a grayscale image. It's so simple that I was tempted to build a PGM from a 3-parameter dataset, with "x" for image width, "y" for image height and various gray colors for "z" categories. The resulting image wasn't impressive, but the method might be useful for other datasets.

Supply Chain Flaws Found in Python Package Repository

Linux Today News - Tue, 08/03/2021 - 13:00

Administrators overseeing the Python Package Index (PyPI) in recent days found themselves responding to vulnerabilities found in the repository of open source software, the latest security problems to hit the Python community.

Most recently, the PyPI group sent out fixes for three vulnerabilities that were discovered by security researcher RyotaK and published on his blog. Two of the vulnerabilities could be used by bad actors to delete documentation or roles within the software package. The third flaw was found in a GitHub Actions workflow within the PyPI repository that, if exploited, could allow a hacker to write permission against the repository and launch malicious code on pypi.org.
