Malicious Python libraries stealing OpenPGP and SSH keys:

– Look for python3-dateutil, and jeIlyfish.
– Both modules try to exfiltrate SSH/OpenPGP keys and send them to an IP address.
– This is the third time the PyPI team intervenes to remove typo-squatted malicious Python libraries from the official repository.

macOS Catalina removes the "Allow apps downloaded from Anywhere" radio button. This option is unsafe, but it's also more accessible. Properly signing macOS apps isn't as easy as it ought to be. To reinstate the option, run this in Terminal:

Learn vim For the Last Time: A Tutorial and Primer

The problem with learning Vim is not that it's hard to do---it's that you have to keep doing it. This guide attempts to break that cycle, so that you can learn it for the last time.
There are dozens of Vim references online, but most of them either go ninja straight away, or start basic and don't go much deeper.
The goal of this tutorial is to take you through every stage of progression—from understanding the vim philosophy (which will stay with you forever), to surpassing your skill with your current editor, to becoming “one of those people”.
In short, we're going to learn vim in a way that will stay with you for life.
Let's get started.
