Hacking, AppSec, and Bug Bounty newsletter
2018-10-26 | Library of Congress publishes new exemptions to DMCA, Orange’s HITCON CTF writeups, and Burp Suite Dark Theme
Friday, October 26
Library of Congress and the Copyright Office have expanded the exemptions to Section 1201 of the DMCA, which means more infrastructure and other complex systems can be examined by security researchers without fear of DMCA anti-circumvention liability (also has implications for election security). But the EFF says it still doesn’t go far enough.
