1. AWS adds controls to block public access to S3

Mismanaged Amazon S3 buckets are a known cause of data leaks in AWS. To curb these leaks, AWS has just this month added a security control to block public access to S3 buckets. This control features four security settings for administrators to choose from depending on their security needs.

2. Netflix to test a cheaper mobile-only plan
