Weekly readings #1

This is the first of a series of posts just to share interesting things I’ve read during the week related to Software Development, not exclusively about mobile.

Peter Bright comment on this post a security hole discovered on WebKit, the open source engine used on the native Android browser. Basically it allows malicious websites to inject JavaScript code into other websites.
