Good evening everybody! I hope your day/weekend went well. Here are just a few things I found on my news feeds today.

  1. Looks like Chrome and Safari need a little work on their password managers.

  2. Another reminder that you have no control over what is installed on computers made available for public use. Furthermore, neither do those who are responsible for those computers.

  3. An interesting article about the old fashioned kind of piracy. The kind where they steal boats, not CDs.

  4. Looks like it's not just IE7 that is vulnerable to the latest 0-day exploit. Better switch to something else. Firefox is my favorite.
    Microsoft: IE5, IE6 also affected by browser vulnerability - Network World

  5. An option is now available to allow your Tor hosted content a little farther reach.

That's it for today. Have fun!
