---------------------------------------------
For the holiday season, The Grumpy Reader fishes out a selecton of recent books you should read even if you think youre too busy.Im sure youve had that feeling too: There are times when theres too much coming your way when youre already busy, so some things just fall by the wayside for too long.

*** The Case for a Compulsory Bug Bounty ***
---------------------------------------------
Security experts have long opined that one way to make software more secure is to hold software makers liable for vulnerabilities in their products. This idea is often dismissed as unrealistic and one that would stifle innovation in an industry that has been a major driver of commercial growth and productivity over the years. But a new study released this week presents perhaps the clearest economic case yet for compelling companies to pay for information about security vulnerabilities in their...

*** Blog: ChewBacca - a new episode of Tor-based Malware ***
---------------------------------------------

Lately Tor has become more attractive as a service to ensure users' anonymity. Also criminals use it for their activities, but they are only slowly adopting this to host their malicious infrastructure.
