One new article link has been added to our Related News page. Ars Technica published an article titled One coach’s nightmare—sending his wank video to female players.

Sometimes one wrong click really can change your life.

Take the case of Jeffrey Sirois. At 3:30pm on the afternoon of September 25, 2014, the 57-year old soccer coach and grocery store owner unbuttoned his blue jeans. Sitting on the brown suede love seat in the living room of his Lebanon, Connecticut home, Sirois held his smartphone at arm’s length as he masturbated, recording a 10-second video clip of the act. Sirois sent the clip to his girlfriend, using the ephemeral messaging service Snapchat. He waited for confirmation that she opened the video on her own phone.

But no confirmation came. After several moments of waiting, Sirois wondered if he had made a mistake.

Related News: Surprise! With $60 Million Genentech Deal, 23andMe Has A Business Plan

One new article link has been added to our Related News page. Forbes published an article titled Surprise! With $60 Million Genentech Deal, 23andMe Has A Business Plan.

People who have bought 23andMe kits and agreed to donate their data to research (that’s about 600,000 of the company’s 800,000 customers) automatically consent for 23andMe to sequence their genomes. 23andMe says that it is also able to share anonymous and pooled data about their self-reported health traits without asking. But Genentech wants even more: it wants to look at health and genetic data on an anonymous but individual basis. For that reason, the company will have to ask customers if they want to enter the study.

One big question behind 23andMe’s business model has always been whether customers will be happy or upset when they find out that they realize they have paid to be used in for-profit research projects. “I’m sure some people will feel great, no problem, and some will feel cheated,” says Hank Greely, director of the Center for Law and the Biosciences at Stanford University. “And the reactions will form a bell curve.”

One new article link has been added to our Related News page. Ars Technica published an article titled Former US cybersecurity official gets 25 years for child porn charges.

On Monday, a federal judge in Nebraska sentenced the former acting director of cybersecurity for the US Department of Health and Human Services to 25 years in prison on child porn charges.

Timothy DeFoggi, who was convicted back in August 2014, is the sixth person to be convicted in relations to a Nebraska-based child porn Tor-enable website known as PedoBook. That site’s administrator, Aaron McGrath, was sentenced to 20 years last year by the same judge. McGrath famously did not have an administrator password, a mistake that federal investigators were easily able to make use of.

One new article link has been added to our Related News page. The Verge published an article titled Security intern uncovers major vulnerability in Yik Yak messaging app.

Yik Yak pitches itself as an easy way to post anonymous messages to users in your area, but a new report suggests the popular app may have a real security flaw on its hands. Written by Sanford Moskowitz, a security research intern at SilverSky Labs, the report details how an attacker on the same Wi-Fi network as his target could take complete control over the target’s Yik Yak account, using only a monitor-friendly network card and a packet analyzer like Wireshark. If Moskowitz’s report holds up, it could present a real problem to the increasingly popular app, which has billed casual anonymity as one of its chief selling points.
