As an American Slashdot reader, for all science articles I suggest that you stop providing both metric and imperial units. Metric is fine with us. Really.

If we need the conversion, we can do it in our heads. Most importantly, it will improve the signal-to-noise ratio in the comments by eliminating the ever-present unit-conversion threads.

Submission + - Java and Python FTP Attacks Can Punch Holes Through Firewalls (csoonline.com)

itwbennett writes: Over the weekend, security researcher Alexander Klink disclosed an interesting attack where exploiting an XXE (XML External Entity) vulnerability in a Java application can be used to send emails. At the same time, he showed that this type of vulnerability can be used to trick the Java runtime to initiate FTP connections to remote servers. After seeing Klink's exploit, Timothy Morgan, a researcher with Blindspot Security, decided to disclose a similar attack that works against both Java's and Python's FTP implementations. 'But his attack is more serious because it can be used to punch holes through firewalls,' writes Lucian Constantin in CSO Online.

Submission + - Congressional IT Staffers Took $100K from Iraqi Politician

RoccamOccam writes: Three brothers, working as IT staffers for several Democrat congressional representatives took $100,000 from an Iraqi politician while they had administrator-level access to the House of Representatives’ computer network, according to this report based on court documents.

The trio worked for dozens of representatives, including members of the intelligence, foreign affairs and homeland security committees. Those positions likely gave them access to congressional emails and other sensitive documents.
