Geek Reading March 17, 2016 #1065

I haven’t highlighted security issues in the past few days, so clearly we were due. First, Troy Hunt has an interesting post on how your personal data is passed around when using “free” services. Mattias Geniar reports on a few remote code execution issues for Git. Definitely read the post to get into the details. Thankfully, not all of today’s posts are security related. I have noticed an increase of posts about Spring Boot. I am a big fan of Spring Boot and it looks like more people are getting into it. Today we have 2 posts on Java Code Geeks, one asking why use Spring Boot and another showing how its AutoConfiguration works. There is another post on DZone about using Spring Boot with the Netflix stack, specifically Eureka.

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