Chinese Hackers Infiltrate New York Times Computers
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has warned users to disable or uninstall Java software on their computers, amid continuing fears and an escalation in warnings from security experts that hundreds of millions of business and consumer users are vulnerable to a serious flaw. Hackers have discovered a weakness in Java 7 security that could allow the installation of malicious software and malware on machines that could increase the chance of identity theft, or the unauthorized participation in a botnet that could bring down networks or be used to carry out denial-of-service attacks against Web sites.

Hollywood Studio Jobs As webmaster of Seeing-Stars.com, I'm frequently asked how to go about getting a job at a Hollywood movie studio. Quite a few people, who are not necessarily interested in becoming actors, still like the idea of landing a job at Warner Bros, Disney, Paramount, Fox, Sony, Universal, Warner Bros or one of the other major studios. Fortunately, getting information about studio jobs isn't as difficult as you might imagine. Most of the major Hollywood studios have employment sections right on their websites, which list available jobs - from secretarial work to Vice Presidents, and everything in between. Some sites even allow you to submit your resume online, or (like Disney) offer guides to help you figure out what kind of studio job might be right for you. Below is a list of links to studio employment pages.
