    Nifty tool that changes the TCP/IP fingerprint of you windows boxen. Haven’t tried it, but looks pretty neat.
  2. Many computer users lack basic security precautions, survey says
    Looks we have more work to do in the consumer awareness area.
  3. California Bans RFID Skimming — InformationWeek
    Well, I feel better know. It is illegal to read an RFID tag in California without the owner’s knowledge or permission. Um, it’s illegal to exceed the speed limit too and we all know how well that reduces speeding.

That’s it for today. Have fun!
