You've never explored a rabbit hole, have you? I mean, I haven't either, but I still feel like it's an apt comparison. There's more than one burrow here... It's true that he wasn't specifically testifying against Clinton; however, he WAS set to begin a trial in which he testified in his own defense on actions that are connected to organizations with ties to Clinton.

Spiral'll eventually find the answers.

Submission + - Critical BIND denial-of-service flaw could disrupt large portions of Internet (

alphadogg writes: Attackers could exploit a new vulnerability in BIND, the most popular Domain Name System (DNS) server software, to disrupt the Internet for many users. The vulnerability affects all versions of BIND 9, from BIND 9.1.0 to BIND 9.10.2-P2, and can be exploited to crash DNS servers that are powered by the software. The vulnerability announced and patched by the Internet Systems Consortium is critical because it can be used to crash both authoritative and recursive DNS servers with a single packet.

What you're looking for is called "Pulse". It used to be independent, but was acquired by LinkedIn at some point (and I'm being too lazy to google when it happened). They have news sites, funny content, and...I don't remember what else, because that's pretty much all I use it for. Still, they have an aggregator-type method of displaying new posts from each site, which allow you to view most (if not all) of each new post in the app. If you want to see more, you can continue to the full site.

Are you telling me that with public acceptance of the vulnerability of Flash, malicious coders have turned to the replacement standard to deliver their malware? Why would they do that? That seems unethical. They should learn to stick to the platforms we know are dangerous, so we know how to protect ourselves.
