It has been reported that corporate and National Security of Japan has been compromised by several cyber attacks and has left sensitive information exposed for about a month. It has been reported that a server located in China was used to hack into Japanese Lower House which resulted in information like email addresses and documents belonging to the chamber's 480 legislators being leaked. It is not clear yet whether passwords and user IDs were stolen too.
Surprise surprise! There's a new flaw in the 'system' that tracks down the user's location through their IP address.
It has been reported that any skilled hacker can now find out the location of a user logged into their account. This gives us another reason to be 'extra careful' when using programs and softwares that help us communicate with our loved ones and a few not-so-loved!
The company, however, is trying to recover from the shock and claiming that the ability to derive IP addresses was common with all web based communication clients. They probably don't know how terrifying this can be for some people. A massive security and privacy breech, i mean, c'mon!!
Adrian Asher, Skype's chief information security officer, said:
The blind spot can be abused by many a proficient hacker and that too, on a massive scale. This was observed by the company when they demonstrated to millions of users how their location can be tracked.
Just as with typical Internet communications software, Skype users who are connected may be able to determine each other's IP addresses. Through research and development, we will continue to make advances in this area and improvements to our software.

Needless to say, this 'break in' has affected Sony Entertainment Network, PlayStation Network (PSN) and Sony Online Entertainment service users.
It wasn't a long time ago when Julian Assange managed to get a hold of several confidential and supposedly secure files from the Pentagon itself. Of course, he did it with the help of his accomplice, a low-ranking Army Intelligence Officer, Bradley Manning, who downloaded thousands of "untouchable" files from impenetrable networks and handed them over to the whistleblower site on a silver platter. Hence, raising questions and giving people something to talk about (God knows, how much we love a good rumor), through WikiLeaks.
All of us have, at one point or another, used major file hosting websites like Megaupload, Hotfile and Rapidshare. The sweetest part and the reason why we wait for hours on end to download our required files from these links is 'cause we don't have to cough up a dime while doing so. Buying them is a far worse idea as breaking rules is and always will be our kinda deal!
