The Web Host Industry Review

An Illinois woman is organizing a class action lawsuit against professional social networking site LinkedIn, arguing that the site failed to meet "industry standard" security practices.

Though LinkedIn said that only a "small subset of the hashed passwords was decoded and published," security site Sophos said the number of decrypted LinkedIn passwords is actually closer to 60 percent. Last year, a security analyst reported that LinkedIn is open to security flaws that could potentially allow hackers to breach users' accounts without the need for their passwords. Katie Szpyrka, who has been a LinkedIn member since 2010, said LinkedIn "failed to properly safeguard its users' digitally stored personally identifiable information including email addresses, passwords, and login credentials."

I remember some consternation in the media a few weeks ago after Boehner split the original $60 billion relief package into two smaller bills that this meant the GOP was going to gut part of it.

Absurd. Did anyone seriously believe Boehner et al. would risk more bad press by stripping out the pork after Chris Christie threw a big tantrum about how evil his own party was for even delaying the initial vote? I hereby retract my skepticism that the GOP leadership collectively has no balls.

Charges were unsealed in New York Tuesday against 48 suspects accused of diverting hundreds of millions of dollars in Medicaid prescription drugs.

Thirty-four suspects were arrested Tuesday morning. Fifteen defendants were taken into custody in New York and New Jersey, and one defendant from the area was expected to surrender. The 16 defendants were scheduled to appeal before a U.S. magistrate in New York.

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says the administration's new $500 million early learning initiative is designed to deal with children from birth onward to prevent such problems as 5-year olds who "can't sit still" in a kindergarten classroom.

"You really need to look at the range of issues, because if a 5-year-old can't sit still, it is unlikely that they can do well in a kindergarten class, and it has to be the whole range of issues that go into healthy child development," Sebelius said during a telephone news conference on Wednesday to announce the Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge.

Army ditches failed combat uniform that put a target on grunts' backs for 8 years

Over the next year, America's largest fighting force is swapping its camouflage pattern. The move is a quiet admission that the last uniform - a pixelated design that debuted in 2004 at a cost of $5 billion - was a colossal mistake. Soldiers have roundly criticized the gray-green uniform for standing out almost everywhere it's been worn. Industry insiders have called the financial mess surrounding the pattern a "fiasco."

Chicago aldermen in committee have approved the multi-million dollar tab to settle lawsuits charging police misconduct at the 2003 Iraq War protests here in Chicago. Lawyers will make millions from taxpayers.

On top of the $6.2 million being paid to plaintiffs, their lawyers are being paid $5 million. Mayor Emanuel's Corporation Counsel Stephen Patton says the city learned lessons from the cases and applied them to the NATO protests and the earlier Occupy Chicago protests. "Folks in both of those protesters were arrested only after extensive notice, and repeated notice. And an opportunity to leave and avoid arrest if they chose to do so."

More than $60,000 has been recouped from duplicate or overlapping payments by Nassau's foster care program, county Comptroller George Maragos has announced.

"In one case, a service provider" billed the county for a child simultaneously at two sites, Maragos said in a news release this week. Maragos said he is pleased "that DSS has taken many of our recommended steps. . . . Recouping the funds is also a win for the taxpayers."

A government website intended to make federal spending more transparent was missing at least $619 billion from 302 federal programs, a government audit has found.

And the data that does exist is wildly inaccurate, according to the Government Accountability Office, which looked at 2012 spending data. Only 2% to 7% of spending data on USASpending.gov is "fully consistent with agencies' records," according to the report. Among the data missing from the 6-year-old federal website...

It's Chicago, of course. And this is what the city gets after a bribery scandal pushed one contractor out of the bidding process.

The Chicago Tribune reports: Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration finalized a $67 million, five-year contract to install up to 300 cameras to catch speeders around city schools and parks, but a slow rollout could mean as few as 50 locations operating this year, the city and vendor confirmed Wednesday. The program sold by the mayor as a child-safety initiative could eventually mean hundreds of millions of dollars in ticket revenue for the city. But Emanuel reduced his initial projection of $30 million in ticket revenue this year to $15 million, due to a combination of technical delays and the bribery scandal that engulfed the city's red light camera vendor amid a series of Tribune stories that began last year.

The total federal debt of the U.S. government has now increased more than $7 trillion during the slightly more than five and a half years Barack Obama has been president.

That is more than the debt increased under all U.S. presidents from George Washington through Bill Clinton combined, and it is more debt than was accumulated in the first 227 years of this nation's existence--from 1776 through 2003. The total federal debt first passed the $7-trillion mark on Jan. 15, 2004, after President George W. Bush had been in office almost three years.
