Software Security . . . and stuff.

June, 2007

  • Whoa - Google Online Security team releases pwn3d server stats!

    Wonder if they read my blog on the topic? http://googleonlinesecurity.blogspot.com/2007/06/web-server-software-and-malware.html Well the bad news (for me) is that it definitely looks like I was wrong in my theory that Apache / IIS would have a 75...
  • Intel NETw3v64.sys driver bugcheck on Vista x64 at (almost) the worst possible time . . .

    So I'm in the presentation - getting ready to sleep my notebook when all of a sudden it bugchecks. I have never actually had a bugcheck on my new notebook in all the months I've had it. In fact I think my last bugcheck was on my old Dell D600 many months...
  • ARP spoofing for fun and profit

    So we all know ARP poisoning / spoofing is really easy to do and it's not a new concept at all . . . but the miscreants appear to have finally figured out a way to make money using it. Check out this blog post from my buddy Neil Carpenter - who joined...
  • Me and my Zune . . .

    Okay - I've been overwhelmingly vehemently opposed to getting a Zune . . . not only do we not get any sort of meaningful discount as employees on the thing - but it won't play my collection of Plays4Sure music (irony) and well . . . I'm not a huge fan...
  • Live from Seville - FIRST conference update - 1

    Sooo . . . we landed in Spain on Saturday . . . but our luggage landed Monday night. :( I was planning on playing in the FIRST futbol cup but my cleats were in the luggage that had not arrived. FIRST futbol cup? Indeed! One of the FIRST members (Martijn...
  • Zero hour . . .

    Well I'm sitting on a couch in a lounge outside of the conference room where I just gave my presentation to a couple hundred people. WHEW!!! Damn it feels good to have this thing off my plate now . . . I've literally spent months preparing the presentation...
  • HTC iPhone?

    This post is going to sound very anti-Windows Mobile and well . . . it sort of is. I'm not a fan of Windows Mobile . . . it's up to version 6 now and it still . . . well . . . sucks. My friend has a T-Mobile Dash and when he upgraded it to WM6 and...
  • DON'T install the Safari for Windows beta (unless you LIKE getting 0wn3d)

    Yes Apple's developers are so much better at secure coding than ours! :) http://apple.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=07/06/12/0120230 Now I almost feel bad posting this because - well it's a beta . . . and even IE7 wasn't without security vulns during...
  • I'm in ur security conference stealin' all your bandwidths . . .

    So we have free wifi in the hotel . . . and it's surprisingly stable and fast. I have shows recording at home on my Media Center box that I want to watch on my Zune . . . further - the shows are being automagically converted to WMV files by this program...
  • Random stuff . . .

    Still on vacation recovering from Spain . . . but of course I'm never really far from my master (the Internet) and so I give you some of this weeks favorites: My friend Aaron is going to start blogging again - and his posts are always full of insight...
