Geek Reading June 5, 2015

Plenty of good articles today, but we are going to focus on security. On Threatpost, they discuss how a kids toy can be used to open fixed-code garage doors in 10 seconds. Granted, the toy is “enhanced” a bit, but it goes to show how easy it is to crack some things. Sakurity reports on a MongoDB BSON injection issue and Ruby regexps. On a related note, SecurityTracker details a PCRE heap overflow in regex processing allowing arbitrary code execution.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
