#in  Nice case study by U. Michigan on a recent hack of their social media. We need more of this sort of thing!
  There's no denying it: we got hacked. Here’s what we learned and what you can learn, too. On Wednesday, August 12, at approximately 3:30am, a barrag...

Mapping license plates to drivers without help of DMV...
Last year, South Dakota passed a law that blocked its DMV from helping any other state issue red light camera tickets to its residents.

PR firms as hacking targets.
When it comes to insider trading, hacking is the new whispering in back rooms.

#in  In general I think Privacy vs Security is a false choice, but some technologies do force that question.
Ross McNutt has a superpower — he can zoom in on everyday life, then rewind and fast-forward to solve crimes in a shutter-flash. But should he?

Cyber-physical boundaries (which I would assert drones are) are dangerous.
Commercial pilots are reporting a surge in near-collisions, according to documents obtained by The Post.

Good discussion on Internet of Things security challenges #fb   #in  
Our cars, fridges and even bank safes are connected to the Internet. It’s making us vulnerable in new and alarming ways.

Overall, some good advice about filtering the security news from noise.
 
It's actually a lot like science--there's good stuff out there, once you get past the "action news" headlines on a lot of it:
Every day it seems like there’s a new breach, a password to reset, or vulnerability. The trouble with a lot of security news though is that lot of it is important, but then there are garbage stories like this, big on scare and lacking in information, that make you just want to tune out. Let’s break down what’s worth paying attention to, and what you can ignore when you see it.

Some good reasoned reporting on data breaches. While the large numbers of people involved in some breaches make for sexy news, the consequences don't always follow. #in   #fb  
It can easily feel as if no one’s bank account or credit card is safe. But for consumers, the effect is quite different from what the headlines suggest.

Excellent store. I often have to get shoes ordered due to having large feet and they always do so happily and without a commitment on my part to buy until I've tried them on. This makes them consistently my first choice for shoe shopping.

Top notch rooms and breakfasts. Sitting out back in the garden was an added treat. J&R are great hosts and take extra steps to make you feel at home. The location, at the transition from downtown Louisville to the historic district, is convient to downtown and the track.

Certainly among the best pulled pork I've ever had and a very good value. Good choice of sides with grits, mac&cheese, slaw, cornbread, beans - all very good, plus some others we didn't try. An out of the way place well worth the effort to find.

A couple dozen beers on tap (a good fraction local) and a large, large bottled selection of beer. Good looking wine selection, plus some infused mixed drinks that were very good. Entrees we tried - fish'n'chips and gnocchi - both very good.

Good chicken salad sandwich, SW BBQ salad, iced tea (some fruit flavor that I now forget) and coffee drinks.

The salad and soup bar was very good with a variety of german and not-so-german salads, a nice Italian Wedding soup, pickled herring, and bread. A good value. The entrees were only OK (Rouladen was not terribly flavorful, sitting too long I think, dumpling was a gooey mess, all topped with way too much heavy gravy; breading on schnitzle was too heavy; red cabbage was good though) and very overpriced. Next time I'd do the soup and salad bar with a simple sausage or sandwich.
