11

There are bundles of bugs, viruses but this time the Heartbleed bug crushed everyone’s faith in the secure web, but a world without the encryption software that Heartbleed exploited would be even worse. In fact, it’s time for the web to take a good hard look at a new idea: encryption everywhere. Mostly websites use either the SSL or TLS protocol to protect password or credit card information as it travels between browser and their servers.

NCS 11/15/11 – Nov 15,2011

House lawmakers on Tuesday are slated to mull updating a 1986 anti-hacking law that even ideological opponents agree criminalizes innocent Web surfing. However, when a Senate panel discussed the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act in September, Justice Department officials argued that changing the penalties could let legitimate bad guys off the hook.
