Paranoid about security? Hello Beijing

If I am not seen for a couple of weeks some may think I am glued to the tube watching the Olympics and sadly that carries little weight whilst I can watch TV in a window I am wondering if I should just pull the internet plug.
After adding some updated information to Jeremy’s “A Good time to be paranoid” and a quick scan around I find that the Internet DNS still has issues, Apple has issues, Windows has issues and Electronic payment systems have issues. If you think that is enough to induce a heart attack even that is covered now that your Pacemaker can be Turned Off.
Now go for the headline grabber “Vista’s Security Rendered Completely Useless by New Exploit” that will be demonstrated at the upcoming Black Hat Security Conference this week by Mark Dowd of IBM Internet Security Systems (ISS) and Alexander Sotirov, of VMware Inc.

“These techniques are being seen as an advance that many in the security community say will have far-reaching implications not only for Microsoft, but also on how the entire technology industry thinks about attacks. Expect to be hearing more about this in the near future and possibly being faced with the prospect of your “secure” server being stripped completely naked of all its protection.”

With all that Aussie Aussie Aussie… See you in a few weeks……
