White House: Your 2013 Federal Taxpayer Receipt

http://www.whitehouse.gov/2013-taxreceipt

In his 2011 State of the Union Address, President Obama promised that, for the first time ever, American taxpayers would be able to go online and see exactly how their federal tax dollars are spent. And for the fourth year in a row, he’s keeping that promise.

Just enter a few pieces of information below, and the Taxpayer Receipt gives you a breakdown of how your tax dollars are spent on priorities like education, veterans benefits, or health care.

Learn more about President Obama's plan to grow our economy.

Charlie Crist and Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera (after Crist's speech)



No ‘Good-time Charlie’ in West Palm, Crist hits hard at Scott in Forum Club speech

http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/news/good-time-charlie-disappears-as-crist-gets-serious/nfZbq/

WEST PALM BEACH — Former Gov. Charlie Crist is known for speaking off the cuff with sunny optimism and interrupting his remarks with shout-outs to members of whatever audience he’s wooing.

Monday’s appearance at a nonpartisan Forum Club of the Palm Beaches lunch was different. Donning glasses to read from a prepared text, Republican-turned-Democrat Crist delivered a multi-pronged attack on GOP Gov. Rick Scott, accusing the incumbent of being beholden to “fat cats” and the tea party and of not caring about teachers, students, the environment, sick people and middle-class families.

question about Open SSL versus a proprietary SSL solution

I know the advantage of open source. A bug becomes known, an army of coders moves in to patch it, life is good. However, I've read that only a few people actively work on Open SSL.

Other than Open SSL being a donation (or free), why choose it over a proprietary one ? Are the commercial SSL solutions really expensive and difficult to deploy ? I'm NOT being anti-open source here, just asking a sincere question. Thanks.

The Heartbleed Hit List: The Passwords You Need to Change Right Now (list of web sites)

*Long list of web sites, much too long to list here*

Heartbleed exploit, inoculation, both released

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/04/14/heartbleed_exploit_patch_both_released/

As the Heartbleed fallout continues, the good news is that code to protect against similar such attacks has been released. The bad news is that exploit code is also available.

Let's start with the latter, released by a chap who took up Cloudlare's challenge to coders in the hope someone, somewhere, would be able to use Heartbleed to extract a private SSL key from an undefended server it erected.

As we noted over the weekend, the challenge was met. The code for the 7th-fastest “solution” to the challenge is now available here.

The author apologises for the inelegance of the Python code he spent a day working on. Cloudflare says the winner took just nine hours to crack the server and run off with the SSL certificate.
