Cyberduck | Libre FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, S3, Backblaze B2 & OpenStack Swift browser for Mac and Windows

SCIENCE
With the proliferation of services to store files online (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, etc.) has come a proliferation of client software for interacting with those services. Cyberduck is a file manager that supports the most popular file storage services. It also supports common protocols like FTP, SFTP, and WebDAV. In addition, Cyberduck can make use of an external editor to provide editing of remote files (e.g., to edit a static website). Users of Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3) will find integrated support for the extended features of S3 like file versioning, bucket lifecycles, access control lists, and multi-part uploads. Cyberduck’s integrated support for Cryptomator encryption can encrypt files before uploading them to cloud storage for additional security. Users of multiple services may appreciate Cyberduck’s bookmarking feature. Cyberduck is available for macOS and Windows. [CRH]

Attacks on secret informants spur federal courts to consider limiting PACER access–ABA Journal

The federal judiciary is considering blocking public online access to criminal court records on PACER to prevent inmates from learning information about confidential informants.

The idea is one of several under consideration as the U.S. Judicial Conference considers the impact of disclosure, the Wall Street Journal (sub. req.) reports.
A recent survey (PDF) of federal judges, prosecutors, defenders and probation offices by the Federal Judicial Center found that nearly 700 witnesses and informants perceived as snitches had been threatened, wounded or killed over a three year period.

U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan of Manhattan told the U.S. Judicial Conference’s criminal rules committee in April that PACER is part of the problem, according to the Wall Street Journal account. Though federal inmates don’t have PACER access, they often get information from others.

“Anonymous remote public access to PACER is a source of much of the information that gets into prisons about who is cooperating,” Kaplan said.

Internet Archive offers to host PACER for free–fedscoop.com

Samantha Ehlinger

Anybody looking to access federal court records electronically has to slog through a difficult-to-use site that charges 10 cents per pageview, but a prominent nonprofit digital library says it wants to make that information available for free.

The Internet Archive told a House subcommittee this week that it wants to give the public easier access to the documents in the Public Access to Court Electronic Records service, known as PACER.

In a letter sent to the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet before a hearing held Tuesday, the Internet Archive said it “would be delighted to archive and host–for free, forever, and without restriction on access to the public–all records contained in PACER.”
