GitHub Account of Gentoo Linux Hacked, Refrain from Using Its Code

Apparently, the GitHub account of the Gentoo Linux distribution has been hacked, as evident by an announcement published on the distro’s official website. The hack took place on June 28 when “unknown individuals” gained control of the GitHub Gentoo organization. The hackers modified the content of repositories as well as some pages. Gentoo is still investigating to figure out the exact extent of the hack, the announcement reads.

French startup Doctrine is raising a $11.6 million funding round (€10 million) from existing investors Otium Venture and Xavier Niel. Doctrine is building a search engine for court decisions and other legal texts.
This is a key tool if you’re a lawyer or you’re working in the legal industry in general. There are now a thousand companies using the service. It currently costs around €129 per user per month.
