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.

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.

10 Android Lollipop features Apple should 'borrow' for iOS 9

InfoWorld - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 07:46

Apple and Google are locked in a never-ending game of catch-up. Each time a new version of iOS or Android is announced, there are just as many borrowed features as new ones, as each side studies and pilfers the other's ideas to find ways to better its own experience. Android L's Material Design is awfully similar to iOS 7's flattened design language, and iOS 8's newfound openness certainly owes a debt to Lollipop's predecessors.

But neither iOS die-hards nor Android fans should complain. The fact is, there are greener spots of grass on both sides of the fence. Now that we've had some time to play with Lollipop, I've already found a few features Apple would be smart to incorporate into iOS 9.

Facebook's Flow could help JavaScript programmers spot elusive bugs

InfoWorld - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 07:09

Easing what has traditionally been a difficult programming task, Facebook has released as open source a debugging tool for JavaScript, called Flow, designed to highlight problems caused by the misuse of data types.

"Flow improves speed and efficiency so developers can be more productive while using JavaScript," Facebook engineers said in a blog item posted Tuesday. Facebook has used Flow for many of its own projects.

[ Need a JavaScript tool for your dev shop? InfoWorld looks at 10 JavaScript editors and IDEs ready for adoption. | Keep up with hot topics in app dev with InfoWorld's Strategic Developer blog and Application Development newsletter. ]

Flow is a static type checker, one that ensures that when a program is run that its variables, functions and other elements of code will adhere to their original specifications. It can check to see if a value assigned to a variable is the correct type, for instance, a number rather than a string of characters. It can also check to see if a function is passed the correct number of inputs.
