Weak Excuses after Weak Security :: Mozilla’s user a/c on Public Server

On Dec-17-2010, Mozilla was reported about availability of its user-accounts (partially, which were used on addons.mozilla.org) over a public server.

They have projects like Firefox (super famous web-browser), NSS (one of the most famous libraries for developing secured client-server application), and more… if an organization like them do a mistake like this, oh yeah… hackers paradise

it’s how they defend themselves…
database included 44,000 inactive accounts using older
but don’t you think… even inactive users on a site deserve their privacy, and if they were inactive and not important then……….

bypass of user level restrictions, a case of bug in ‘Scribd.com’

So, here is a bug (which  has now been fixed) in Scribd.com… that allowed users to get a local copy of documents which were devoid of download and print options.

It’s how layered limitation can be broken, and why restrictions must be implemented root-level-up and not just as user-level module.

encounter with GitHub’s A.I. which is “purely artificial and poorly intelligent”

Recently, I had an interesting encounter with GitHub’s A.I. which was purely artificial and poorly intelligent.
I have a repo at ‘https://github.com/abhishekkr/sitehoster‘; it’s an experimental web-server developed in ‘Java’ but it has been marked as ‘Javascript’.

Now I’m a bit hard at things which don’t work to their potential… but I don’t think their is anything wrong in it.

So yeah there is an ‘Artificially Poorly Inferenced Logic‘ implemented in so advanced GitHub
which could have been ‘Smartly Easily Granted Control‘ to not so artificially intelligent Users…

{securing more than 13million registrations online}
[] preparations are up to sign the ‘.com’ zone in first quarter of 2011

Verisign has even launched a cloud based DNSSEC implementation service to ease its implementation in organisations…
