Set Up Your Mac for Development in a Few Minutes

It's great to get a new computer, but it takes hours to actually get the thing set up so you can use it. If you're a developer, Lapwing Laps has a guide to automate the whole process, including setting up special default settings.

The bulk of the guide uses Homebrew to snag software, but from there it also walks you through restoring configurations from other computers, and includes a handy script to customize your Mac so it works a little better. Obviously you'll need to go through a set up these scripts to suit your needs, but it's a good starting point if you want to make setting up a new Mac a little easier.

Google researchers reveal new Poodle bug, putting the web on alert [feedly]

Google researchers reveal new Poodle bug, putting the web on alert
// The Verge

A trio of Google researchers published a troubling bug today, sending much of the web into panic mode to ensure systems were adequately secure. The report describes a POODLE attack (short for "Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption") that would effectively circumvent SSL protections, the same protocol targeted by Heartbleed earlier this year. This bug, also known as "Poodlebleed," is not as serious or as far-reaching as Heartbleed, but has still raised alarms in the research community.

Also known as "Poodlebleed"

SSL protects data in transit between a website and a user, usually indicated by a green padlock icon and an HTTPS url. If SSL is compromised, a sophisticated attacker could intercept and replace data in transit, opening the door to all manner of attack. Rumors have been circulating all day that SSL was insecure, but this report explains the bug in detail, giving admins a head start in fixing the bug as well as providing would-be attackers with a road map for exploiting the bug.

The Poodle attack targets SSL version 3.0 in particular, which was replaced 15 years ago but is still supported by many systems and can be triggered under the right circumstances. As a result, researchers are urging sysadmins to discontinue SSL 3.0 support, which should be sufficient to prevent the Poodle attack. "If either side supports only SSL 3.0, then all hope is gone," the report says, "and a serious update required to avoid insecure encryption." Further details can be found here.

This Video Explains Why Microwaves Are Safe (Even When Running)
// Lifehacker

We've all heard the tales of our cancer-causing cooking boxes we keep in the kitchen, but they really aren't dangerous to be around when they're running.

Craig Benzine from the Mental Floss YouTube channel takes a look at the classic myth in this video. While it's true that microwave ovens use microwave radiation to cook your food, there's no evidence that any dangerous levels of radiation escape. See that layer of mesh on the glass? That keeps the microwaves from escaping. It's still not recommended to stare into the microwave while it's working its magic, but the FDA regulates all microwave ovens sold in the US to ensure their safety. When it comes to what should or shouldn't be microwaved, however, that's a completely different story.
