It has been a while, but some security news leads our day. First, The Next Web reports on 45M passwords being stolen from over 1100 VerticalScope forums. This has the potential to bleed into another password reuse hack like we have seen lately. Sentry has an excellent post about a security incident that they had recently. As far as they know, no data has been taken, but their response and documentation of the process is fantastic. At Codelitt, we get a great post about securing ubuntu. This builds on another blogger’s “my first 5 minutes on a server” post, so make sure you read the linked posts as well.

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