Java-based (JDBC) data connectivity to SaaS, NoSQL, and Big Data. Download Now.

WordPress kicks off our day by announcing release 4.2 “Powell”. So, if you are running WordPress, you need to update. Three good articles are highlighted in the security section. On Wired, they report on how the NSA “Quantum Insert” attacks work. Weblog Lexsi talks about Dyreza’s anticrypt. Lastly, Coding Horror goes on a rant about how our passwords need to be longer. The rant is backed by some statistics, so there is some good reasoning there as well.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
