Fraunhofer Institute researchers are working to speed up the scanning of mobile app code for security flaws, aiming to offer developers in a few milliseconds the kind of analysis that once required an all-night scan of code. In fact, the researchers are showing not one but three tools to evaluate or enhance the security of mobile apps at the Cebit trade show in Hanover, Germany, this week, the other two intended to detect flaws in already-deployed apps.

The CIA's decision to use Amazon's cloud is part of a broader IT shake-up to make the spy business more efficient.

CIOs who haven't moved their companies from Windows XP by now ought to be fired, some people think, but those who haven't and are still on the job have options for saving their bacon. "Start," is the first piece of advice from Shawn Allaway, CEO of Converter Technology, which specializes in migrating businesses to new versions of Windows and Microsoft Office. Even if the project isn't completed before Microsoft ends support for XP on April 8, it's important to minimize the window of exposure during which XP runs unsupported on corporate networks.

Facebook's grand scheme to bring Internet access to underserved parts of the world could soon get off the ground, literally, with drones flying high overhead.

It put the value of the deal at $60 million.
