For as long as I can remember in attending the American Bar Association’s annual TECHSHOW conference, one constant has persisted: the prominent presence in the exhibit hall of Thomson Reuters or its predecessor West Publishing Company. This year, that will change. When TECHSHOW opens Feb. 27 in Chicago, Thomson Reuters will not be among the exhibitors.
Thomson Reuters confirmed this week that it will not exhibit at TECHSHOW this year. Last year, it spent $137,000 to exhibit at TECHSHOW.
Even so, this is not a threat to the viability of TECHSHOW, sources familiar with the conference said. In recent years, TECHSHOW has seen growth in both the number of vendors who participate and the number of legal professionals who attend. Information provided by the Law Practice Division after last year’s show said that it was the most successful ever in both revenue and attendance.

A popular WordPress plugin, installed on thousands of websites to help users share content on social media sites, left linked Twitter accounts exposed to compromise.
The plugin, Social Network Tabs, was storing so-called account access tokens in the source code of the WordPress website. Anyone who viewed the source code could see the linked Twitter handle and the access tokens. These access tokens keep you logged in to the website on your phone and your computer without having to re-type your password every time or entering your two-factor authentication code.
But if stolen, most sites can’t differentiate between a token used by the account owner, or a hacker who stole the token.
Baptiste Robert, a French security researcher who goes by the online handle Elliot Alderson, found the vulnerability and shared details with TechCrunch. He later tweeted details of the bug on Thursday.
In order to test the bug, Robert found 539 websites using
