Surviving its first year
project from VMWare to Eclipse Foundation, and reaching version 2.0, "Vert.x can do pretty much anything Node.js can do, and more
", developers claim.
Currently, they (still) work at Scala and Clojure support, as well as support for npm modules. But, nevertheless, performance is already better that one of Node. Unfortunately, its not easy to integrate Vert.x with existing java front-end frameworks based on servlets (because they block), and this will probably further reduce adoption rate of this.

1st national tv channel of Ukraine
had their site compromised, and served malware for a couple of days, but then i decided to stop being lazy, performed the complete investigation, and forwarded it to site owners.
If you like technical details - you can read them below.

This stuff is not news and actually is from 2008, but still fun
Quoting anonymous: "The fact that this is an implementation of the VM, rather than just a source-to-source translation, has fantastic implications for the likelihood of getting other languages into the browser via their VM-based implementations.
What strange is that according to John Resig - "We can see ... a 5x performance improvement over regular Ruby 1.8.2, running on the command-line.
" - if that's true it either means JS is very optimized, or that Ruby is very immature.

The JRE (Java Runtime Environment) update released by Oracle at the end of March covered 20 vulnerabilities, some of which were marked "Highly critical" by Secunia. You may have the feeling of your system being more secure after applying that update, but few users probably expected that another "Highly critical" vulnerability would become public soon after.
web is so unsafe nowadays, and getting even unsafer each day
