Geek Reading August 19, 2015

Our focus for today returns to security. First, on Google Webmaster Central they talk about identifying and diagnosing injected gibberish URL hacking. Anyone that runs their own or others’ websites should definitely read this. On thecomputerperson, they relate how Twitter is leaking your friends’ and family’s emails. Granted, you need to know what email address a user signed up for Twitter with, but it is not hard to get there. Lastly, The Next Web reports on further information about the IRS hack, where there could be another 220,000 accounts affected. That hack keeps getting scarier.

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