Good day all. Got a pretty good bunch o bits to take a look at today. So, without further ado, here we go!
From the Blogosphere.

He points out than in many cases, the real pain of identity theft is not monetary, but dealing with the tarnishing of you good name as you try to clean things up.

Irongeek has released a little tool called DecaffeinatID that
“DecaffeinatID is a simple little app that acts as an Intrusion Detection System (more of a log watcher really) to notify the user whenever fellow users at their local WiFi hotspot/ LAN are up to the kind of “reindeer games”
Looks pretty nifty.
Rich has another missive that deserves to be read more than once. He talks about Database connections and Trust. I am not going to attempt to summarize what he puts forth. Go read it.

From the Newsosphere.
Via cjonline.com, some Kansas state equipment that was to be sold to the public contained confidential information. People, please make sure you have data retention, handling and destruction policies and procedures and that they are adhered to.
