COURSER-OOPS? "A funny thing happened on the way to Coursera," writes computer scientist and Stanford law professor, Jonathan Mayer, as he prepared to teach Stanford Law's first Coursera course. Mayer uncovered some surprising security loopholes as he poked around the platform, such as: "Any teacher can dump the entire user database, including over nine million names and email addresses." The post may be a tad technical for some but is a must-read for developers. It's humbling (and disturbing) to see a company with so much clout (and funding) slip up on security protocols that EdSurge engineers say are fairly standard.
