Security hit the headlines last week as the Logjam encryption flaw caused consternation across the security community. The vulnerability, in theory, leaves tens of thousands of web and mail servers open to man-in-the-middle attacks.
The researchers who found the flaw said that Logjam renders as many as 8.4 percent of the top one million web domains open to exploitation, but warned that the flaw's reach is significantly higher.
This was clearly of interest, and perhaps concern, to V3 readers, who rushed to the story, no doubt to consider how their business might be affected.
Away from security and Microsoft issued its latest release of Windows 10 for preview testers as the launch of the operating system draws ever nearer.
Finally, there was reason to celebrate this week as the Java programming language turned 20. Oracle noted just how widespread the tool has become, saying that some seven billion devices worldwide use the platform in some way.
