Equifax Breach Blamed on Open-Source Software Flaw

CircleID CircleID: Equifax has blamed a flaw in the software running its online databases for the massive breach revealed last week that has allowed hackers to steal personal information of as many as 143 million customers. Kevin Dugan reporting in the New York Post: "Hackers were able to access the info — including Social Security numbers — because there was a flaw in the open-source software created by the Apache Foundation ... STRUTS is a widely available software system that's used by about 65 percent of Fortune 100 companies, including Lockheed Martin, Citigroup, Vodafone, Virgin Atlantic, Reader's Digest, Office Depot, and Showtime — plus the IRS, according to lgtm, a software development group."

Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday September 11th

Domain Shane Domain Shane:
I started my transition this week from giving talks on straight gardening to giving talks about business, family, and the journey of building a life.  I also started charging a larger fee so I can actually pay for my time and not just promote the nursery.  It went pretty well but I have found that most people just aren’t used to hearing a good speaker.  A person that is having a good time on stage, knows their content, and delivers with some humor and enthusiasm.   I have a lot of good experiences that I can pull out of the bag and domain investing is certainly helped in that realm.   Meeting Kim Kardashian, getting sick at the grotto of the Playboy mansion, and various other “adventures” in the journey to create a domain business.   Add in working in a 5th generation green operation with your family on a day to day business and I am pretty diverse.  There is plenty of speech material.   In short, it went well and I think if I add a few more pieces to the final ending of my business puzzle I can start doing a lot more of these.  I just have to have a few more reasons for people to book me so I can tell me stories.   Here are today’s names.

Data Protection and Privacy: Progress Update and Next Steps

ICANN Blog ICANN Blog: In this blog, we want to provide you with an update on our data protection and privacy work as it relates to the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
In late July, we published the first draft of a matrix of user stories related to registrants' data that registries and registrars collect, display, and process, pursuant to ICANN contracts. We thank everyone who contributed to the initial matrix, and provided feedback during the 30-day public review period.
We have now consolidated the information that was collected into a more easily readable format [PDF, 686 KB]. A high-level summary is also included in the document. We encourage you to review the submissions, and the summary.
As a reminder, the intent of this exercise is to inform discussions on the possible effect of the GDPR, on ICANN's contracts with registries, and registrars. The information in the matrix, is intended to explain the multiple uses of the data to the appropriate legal entities, such as the Data Protection Authorities, to help them understand their uses in regards to the registries' and registrars' legal obligations, related to GDPR.
We also want to reiterate, that this effort is not intended to replace existing policies, policy work that is underway, or ICANN's Procedure for Handling WHOIS Conflicts with Privacy Law.
Next Steps
With the data collection stage completed, we will now move on to the following activities:
We have engaged a specialist European law firm, Hamilton Advokatbyrå, to assist us with the legal analysis of the data in the matrix. A draft of the initial phase of the analysis from Hamilton, is expected to be ready to be shared for feedback from the community, prior to the ICANN meetings in Abu Dhabi, beginning in October 2017.
Engagement Information: During the past few months, we have had several discussions with stakeholders, including data protection authorities (DPAs), to inform them of ICANN's work in this area. We look forward to continuing to engage with the DPA community and other stakeholders, including the ICANN ecosystem, as our work and analysis progress over the coming weeks and months.
We also expect to participate in discussions on GDPR at ICANN60 in Abu Dhabi. The meetings schedule will be posted soon. Please check back regularly for pertinent sessions, and information on remote participation, if you won't be there in person.
We will keep you updated on our progress, and hope that your organization's efforts to comply with GDPR are going well.
