Submission + - SORBS blacklists the internet (utest.com)

anonymous writes: Last night, the SORBS anti-spam blacklist (no link — their site is slammed right now) accidentally updated their databases to include an enormous number of the Internet's mail servers and networks. Large portions of IP addresses owned by Amazon, Google, Rackspace, and others were included in this blacklist and marked as unacceptable for email. Details here, along with a reply from Michelle Sullivan at SORBS about the troubles they've been having.

Submission + - Prizes for Finding Browser Bugs

fremen writes: uTest, a software testing company, is running a competition to give away cash prizes to anyone who discovers new bugs in IE8, Firefox 3.1, and Google Chrome. They're promising to send the final bug reports to all three companies (and credit the discoverer), so this seems like a fun way to do some testing while helping make each browser better. Sign-up is free, and they've already found over 200 bugs in 12 hours.
