This only works if you configured your mail client to display HTML mails with external links automatically. I’ve not seen a client doing that by default for… I don’t know… as long as I can remember.

Apart from that: That the people who came up with this attack recommended to uninstall GnuPG... that's really weird. Why would you want to remove software A, when the security hole is in software B? That honestly doesn’t make a lot of sense.
  
They do not list Sylpheed. this issue is related to HTML format emails, sylpheed has a 'faux' HTML rendering option which i never bother to use. It's kind-of a goofy rendering option, IMHO. Possibly not vulnerable.

It's not necessarily only about HTML contents, but depends on each individual MUA does automatically with the plaintext of an e-mail - e.g. pre-fetch or make a DNS lookup for anything that looks like an URL in a text/plain body.

I don't know whether any MUA actually does something like that, but do not like that 99% of online discussions center this around HTML emails and HTML emails only.

I hope this leads to Valve planning out the Steam Machine more thoroughly. They would have to greatly reduce the price to truly compete in the console market, though. I don't see SteamOS competing for the PC market, so really console consumers are who Valve should target.

I am surprised, I did not know yet, that digiKam is available for macOS too. If I remember the first versions of digiKam, the GUI looked pretty simple and ugly, but the current version looks pretty neat. I am thankful for any serious alternative for C1 and LR.

I have tried it out yesterday on my laptop, unfortunately I have to say the interface is very confusing and I do not like the menus on the side. I couldn't even import an image. it is a task, which should be self explaining. I am a kind of disappointed, but I will test it on my iMac more deeply.
