While CryptDB protects against a compromise of the database server application itself, with data at rest always being encrypted, it isn't designed to protect against an attack on applications used to access the data.

There's also some "leakage" of data required for the SQL server to do some processing, so intercepting queries sent to the server could also reveal some data—depending on the way queries are structured. … [Read more...] about MS researchers claim to crack encrypted database with old simple trick

Fragmentation on the Windows Phone platform isn't as much of a problem as it is in Android because you're still talking about a relatively small number of handsets and software versions and, delays aside, most phones have gotten their software updates eventually. Still, the disconnect between Microsoft's early promises about phone updates and the eventual reality smacks of the same carrier meddling and general laziness that keeps many Android handsets so woefully out of date. Even Google's Android reference devices are subject to carrier delays—for instance, while the WiFi only version of the Motorola Xoom received Ice Cream Sandwich in January of 2012, the Verizon-branded Xoom didn't receive the update until June. … [Read more...] about What happened to the Android Update Alliance?
