Not too long ago, we attended KubeCon EU 2022. This was especially exciting because it was the first big-industry event that we attended being a startup born in a COVID world. Having a booth on the showroom floor, being able to connect with folks from all types of backgrounds, and sharing with them what we’re building was a great learning experience.
Welcome to the May 2022 recap of Mondoo releases.
The year of LTS Linux releases continues! Amazon is now shipping preview releases for Amazon Linux 2022, their latest long-term support (LTS) version of Amazon Linux. With this version, Amazon joins the LTS party started by Ubuntu Server 22.04 LTS, which we previously discussed in this blog.

In the past year, devastating cloud security breaches have dominated technology headlines. These big news stories are only the tip of the iceberg in cybercrime—we don’t hear about the thousands of successful attacks that cripple worldwide businesses every day.
