Download full playlists and all songs by an artist from SoundCloud


First of all I want to apologise for what I’m writing about in this post.
SoundCloud is a music platform where you can listen to almost every song for free.
This is a great network and only works as long users don’t download the songs from SoundCloud.
Great artists advertise their content to get more attention, the last thing they want is that you’ll download their songs.
However there’s no way to prevent people from doing so, as you will see not even the guys behind SoundCloud can prevent their content from being downloaded.
I’d ask you to donate for or buy the songs from the artists you like on SoundCloud.

Open SSL Heartbleed Bug

For those who missed it. The OpenSSL project has recently announced a security vulnerability in OpenSSL affecting versions 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 (CVE-2014-0160).

Details of the bug are available here: The Heartbleed Bug

You can check you website here: Heartbleed test

Details and update instructions from the websites of your Linux vendor of choice:
* Amazon Linux AMI
* Red Hat
* Ubuntu

On Ubuntu the update is simply done by executing these commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

The following command shows (after an upgrade) all services that need to be restarted.

ps uwwp $(sudo find /proc -maxdepth 2 -name maps -exec grep -HE '/libssl\.so.* \(deleted\)' {} \; | cut -d/ -f3 | sort -u)
