API Mashups (3)
A competitor created an export tool for Flickr ex-patriots, so the photo sharing site shut down the Flickr API developer key. The Google Plus developer page makes some wonder if the "real" Google Plus API is coming soon. Also: questions about the Google Safe Browsing API, free cloud database and 15 new APIs.
Have you noticed an increase in the number of reports about malware and compromised web servers? Recently, a computer exploit known as Gumblar has been making news for its ability to launch exploits via drive-by download. Gumblar silently installs itself on a computer if a user simply visits a compromised web site, where it proceeds to steal FTP logins and replace legitimate Google search results with redirects to sites of the attacker's choosing. Despite the threat of Gumblar and malware exploits like it, users of recent releases of the Firefox or Chrome browser have an extra layer of protection provided by their use of Google's Safe Browsing API.
