Australia's Federal Court has ruled that ISPs must hand over details of people who downloaded Dallas Buyer's Club. The Hollywood studio had requested that iiNet (and a few other Australian ISPs) divulge the identity of customers whose IP addresses were found to have shared the film Dallas Buyers Club illegally. The company owns the rights to the movie and identified a total of 4726 IP addresses that engaged in the illegal activity. The ruling means that the company will now be given the contact details of the offenders and will be able to pursue them directly for compensation. Discussion here.

Linux Australia have advised of a server breach and recommend password changes for anyone who has registered for their conferences in the last three years. In a message to the Linux-aus mailing list, Hesketh encouraged conference attendees who had registered for the events to change their passwords on other web services or use a password service if the same passwords had been used when registering for the conferences.
