In the past few weeks, I remember many of us in the class posting about how Facebook and Google+ had had data breaches. This article mentions those incidents but also mainly focuses on the data breach of ANOTHER major internet company: Tumblr. Apparently through the Recommended Blogs feature, one could potentially obtain details about a blog, such as email address, password, and last login IP address. Although it WAS patched, the reason this is noteworthy is because, as the article mentions, this is yet again another major social media that has been vulnerable to attacks. I guess it’s just a lesson for us to be careful about what we publicize online.”

I’ve managed to find yet another article on bitcoin!! So a recent patch came out to stop miners from being hit with Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. A result of this aggression, the entire block chain would be brought down. Basically, people could no longer mine bitcoin. It would take miners 12.5 bitcoin (about $80,000) worth of mining in order to overcome the DDOS attack. They would not only lose out on possible profit, but also need to pay for the electricity their mining rigs are consuming while dealing the with DDOS. Too bad the Secret Service won’t intervene to protect bitcoin miners. “
