Interesting Information Security Bits for 10/04/2008

Good afternoon everybody! I hope your day is going well.
Here are today’s Interesting Information Security Bits from around the web.

  1. PaulDotCom Community Blog: Securing Cisco Routers the Easy Way
    Good post on securing Cisco routers.
  2. Matasano Chargen >> Blog Archive >> VoIP Demystified: SIP

  3. Hack and tell: Teen hacker Mafiaboy writes memoir | News – Security – CNET News

  4. Consensus Controls project aims to set benchmarks for compliance
    An interesting thought, peer review of controls. It’s an interesting thought and could be very useful. I’ve sent a request for a beta invite. I’ll let you know what I think if I get one.
  5. Vendors rush to fix bug that could crash Internet systems
    There has been a lot of talk around the internets over the last couple of weeks about a significant vulnerability that is platform agnostic. In the last few days, many have indicated that they think it is nothing new. I get the impression from this article that that may not be the case. Only time will tell, but let’s not be too quick to dismiss it as a rehashing of an old issue.

That’s it for today. Have fun!
Kevin
