GA Tech: Internet's Mid-Layers Vulnerable To Attack
Actually, authenticated FTP should be extinct. When all I need to compromise the account is to tap a line and wireshark it, that's broken.

SpyEye Trojan Source Code Leaked
“Over the last 18 months, SpyEye has made a lot of headlines, especially when it was revealed that the development team behind the malware was effectively merging it with that of the older Zeus code,”
Analyzing Culture With Google Books
Calling this technique "culturomics" makes it sound like it is some new field, and that analysis of this type has never been undertaken before.
It is actually called bibliometrics, and it has been around for decades. Digital resources such as Google books allow now much larger amounts of data to be analyzed than was possible in the past, but this isn't some new field just invented by these researchers.
3DS and Vita Face Tough Battle Against Smartphones
By "smartphone," don't you really just mean the iPhone? Game devs certainly aren't making a run for the booming Android goldmine.
Also, the only genre that touchscreen controls aren't so hot in is traditional action games (platformers, shooters, fighters) where you have to move your character around with fast reaction times. Everything else works pretty damn well, I've found.
Cop Seeks Wiretapping Charges For Woman Who Videotaped Beating
The headline is a bit misleading...
"Police Sgt. John M. Delaney, aide to Commissioner William J. Fitchet, said Sedergren filed the complaint personally, not on behalf of the Police Department. “If officer Sedergren feels his rights were violated under the law then he has the opportunity to make his case in court, just like everyone else,” Delaney said."
The Police did not file, a police officer filed.
NASA Opens New Office For Space Missions
I agreed that the ISS is NOT built for space exploration. Usually I would say scrap the whole manned mission to Mars and fix the economy first but I will say this. If you're going to built a multi-purpose vehicle, make the ship BIGGER. You have about (at least) six crew members riding in a giant tin can and if you're using a (FAILED) Orion space capsule, you won't have enough leg room, let alone privacy. Also you can't be weightless for the entire journey or your bones will become brittle. You need a ARTIFICIAL GRAVITY ROTATION DRIVE, similar to the ships from the 2010 and MISSION TO MARS movies. You can't go into deep space in a small (been there, done that) space capsule or otherwise you'll go cuckoo for coco puffs. If you're going to build a ship, think big and do it right. Also it wouldn't hurt to name the ship, ENTERPRISE :) Peace.
