Someone does OpenID right

Significant website now accepts OpenID! It just so happens to be Sourceforge, the bastion of open source software projects.

It’s about time someone big started accepting OpenID for authentication, instead of just dishing out OpenIDs and acting oh so cool about it.

Website hacks on the rise

According to statistics collected by the Web Application Security Consortium, site hacks are clearly on the rise.

Interestingly, VARBusiness noted that the increase in ecommerce use is likely contributing to the case, as hackers go where the money is (a phenomena that was already forming this time last year). What I don’t get is why anyone would try to hack SourceForge – everything is already free for the taking.
