InfoWorld - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 14:54

Enterprise data sets have gotten so voluminous that they can't fit into even the largest data warehouses anymore, many businesses find. Now, companies running these overstuffed data stores have an on-ramp to newfangled, big-data style processing through a combined effort between analytics systems supplier Teradata and Apache Hadoop distribution provider MapR.

The partnership is aimed at letting users of systems based on the Teradata Unified Data Architecture seamlessly use MapR's distribution of the Hadoop open-source software framework for the distributed processing of big data.

BitTorrent dismisses security concerns raised about its Sync app

InfoWorld - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 11:50

BitTorrent dismissed claims that its popular peer-to-peer file synchronization program BitTorrent Sync has an insecure cryptographic implementation that potentially gives the company access to users' files.

A group of security researchers who recently reverse engineered parts of BitTorrent Sync released a report Monday outlining several potential security issues they found. The most serious of those issues had to do with the leak of cryptographic hashes that correspond to folders shared between users to GetSync.com, a remote server operated by BitTorrent.

[ Build and deploy an effective line of defense against corporate intruders with InfoWorld's Encryption Deep Dive PDF expert guide. Download it today! | Stay up to date on the latest security developments with InfoWorld's Security newsletter. ]

The analysis revealed the "probable leak of all hashes to getsync.com and access for BitTorrent Inc to all shared data," the researchers said in their report posted on the website of the Hackito Ergo Sum security conference.
