๐Ÿ“Œ [1604.02734] Gone in Six Characters: Short URLs Considered Harmful for Cloud Services

โ€œIn this paper, we demonstrate that the space of 5- and 6-character tokens included in short URLs is so small that it can be scanned using brute-force search. Therefore, all online resources that were intended to be shared with a few trusted friends or collaborators are effectively public and can be accessed by anyone. This leads to serious security and privacy vulnerabilities. In the case of cloud storage, we focus on Microsoft OneDrive. We show how to use short-URL enumeration to discover and read shared content stored in the OneDrive cloud, including even files for which the user did not generate a short URL. 7% of the OneDrive accounts exposed in this fashion allow anyone to write into them. Since cloud-stored files are automatically copied into usersโ€™ personal computers and devices, this is a vector for large-scale, automated malware injection. โ€ #

๐Ÿ“Œ Science facultyโ€™s subtle gender biases favor male students

โ€œIn a randomized double-blind study (n = 127), science faculty from research-intensive universities rated the application materials of a studentโ€”who was randomly assigned either a male or female nameโ€”for a laboratory manager position. Faculty participants rated the male applicant as significantly more competent and hireable than the (identical) female applicant. These participants also selected a higher starting salary and offered more career mentoring to the male applicant. The gender of the faculty participants did not affect responses, such that female and male faculty were equally likely to exhibit bias against the female student.โ€ #
