+ - Swedish Police Raid The Pirate Bay Again. ->

Submitted by o_ferguson
o_ferguson (836655) writes "TorrentFreak is reporting that police in Sweden carried out a raid in Stockholm today, seizing servers, computers, and other equipment. At the same time The Pirate Bay and several other torrent-related sites disappeared offline. Although no official statement has been made, TF sources confirm action against TPB. This is not the first time that this has happened."

The "certificate authority that issues free certificates to any website" can actually be one or many of the CAs that is popular today. This is just a new protocol for the way to get a certificate signed by one of these CAs. So if some CA issues as a cert to the NSA for your domain right now there is nothing here that prevents that CA for doing it when using this new protocol.

+ - A book on node.js worth to read->

Submitted by piyasde
piyasde (2911749) writes "This book was written with an application development and deployment in mind, which is very helpful for developers.
I have done some intranet based applications with node.js in past. Also I have used redis in my other projects. As I have read the book, I acquired knowledge of socket.io, rabbitmq which I had not used earlier.

This book covers topic like handling CSRF (Cross Site Request Forgery), Login with Social Media Accounts (Google,Facebook) using passport.js, Demo Server starting with Python, Session handling, front end tools integration with bower (package manager) etc which are useful in real world business applications.

I have not digged fully with Dom handling with Backbone and React chapter, where I have replaced my frontend with Angular.js.

At the end of the book, there are two extremely helpful chapters like – Javascript Development best practices and debugging and troubleshooting of javascript application."

No need. FRA will not just monitor email, sms and telephone traffic -- they will also monitor "normal" surfing. This is a much simpler way to (perhaps) trigger some alarms:
