Interesting Information Security Bits for July 17th, 2008

Hello all. I apologize for the lack of posts over the last couple of weeks. Life and death have taken up all my time. Things should be back to normal now. So without further ado, here’s are some things to take a look at today.

From the Blogosphere

Wesley over at McGrewSecurity has collected a bunch of links and embedded a bunch of videos of Dan Kaminsky talks. Very cool.

Craig at SecurityWannabe gives us a link to a video of Lee Kushner and Mike Murry’s talk about a career in Information Security. I attended their session at Defcon 15 and the informal Q&A after. Really good stuff. Go watch the video or even better attend their session at this year’s Defcon.

Rich Mogull writes on Securosis that he will be giving a webcast entitled Using Data Leakage Prevention and Database Activity Monitoring for Data Protection on July 29th. Register here. I’ll be watching. You should too.

Via security4all, VMWare has released an updated paper on hardening ESX 3.5 and VirtualCenter 2.5. It can be found here.

From the Newsosphere

Via Dark Reading, Half of Financial Firms Don’t Investigate. That’s not good.

Via Tech Republic, When your network admin hijacks your system. Talks about the San Fransisco situation you have already heard about.

Via Search Security, Blackberry server faced with critical zero-day. There is a flaw in the PDF handling function of the BlackBerrty Attachement Service. Bad stuff.

Via Dark Reading, MessageLabs Reveals Most Spammed States. Illinois apparently has the largest bulls eye painted on its forehead.

Via Information Week, Gmail Privacy Hole Shows User Names. Be careful with Google calendar.

That’s it for today’s bits. Have a great day.

Kevin
