Submission + - Court Strikes Down Net Neutrality (wsj.com)

bobdehnhardt writes: According to the Wall Street Journal, a federal appeals court has struck down federal rules that had required equal treatment of Internet traffic. The FCC's "open Internet" rules, often referred to as net-neutrality rules, were passed in 2010 and designed to ensure Internet service providers treated similar content on their broadband pipes equally. Verizon Communications Inc. sued to block the rules, saying the FCC lacked the authority to impose them.

On Tuesday, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit agreed with Verizon. The court also threw out an FCC rule that barred providers from blocking Internet traffic outright.

Submission + - Barracuda Gear Rooted - By Barracuda (theregister.co.uk)

bobdehnhardt writes: The Reg reports: Multiple Barracuda Networks products feature an undocumented backdoor, leaving widely deployed network and data center gear vulnerable to hijacking. Privileged user accounts were found in various Barracuda appliances, including its flagship Spam and Virus Firewall, Web Application Firewall, Web Filter, SSL VPN, and other gear. The accounts, which Barracuda claims are necessary for remote customer support, cannot be disabled, are hard-wired into the equipment's operating system, and can be assessed remotely via SSH or the local terminal.
