Comment : but after trying some of the most important looking names, they weren't working or were just hijacked by other sites or services without anything real. So maybe I should take the name http://sucksnl.skucks.nl (don't click)

Lt. Gen. Song Yong-keun, commander of the Defense Security Command, said in an opening address of a conference on national defense information protection that, "On orders from National Defense Commission chairman Kim Jong-il, North Korea is operating a crack unit of hackers, and is strengthening its cyber-terror capabilities, collecting information from South Korean national bodies and research institutions through hacking." The DSC said last year that North Korea was training about 100 specialized hackers a year, but this is the first time the existence of a hacker unit or its information collection activities has been officially confirmed

For the moment it is a bit quiet on this network and the reason is that we are installing lots of new security tools in our network and that I am just happy at the end of the day not to look at a computer.
Maybe of interest. But how did we keep the network of 1500 posts free of any virus since january. Well, there is a special antivirus for the mail, one other that is installed on all the servers and the desktops and laptops and a great one that controls all the traffic coming in and going out whatever the protocol ( mail, surfing, ftp,...). We see that there are nowadays more viruses on websites than ever before.
and when all the work will be done, I hope that by the end of 2005 i can declare that my network is as secure as it can be giving the funds and people that are at our disposal.
New updates will follow in the coming days. But i like to profit a bit of the relative calm in the security field to concentrate on the very demanding job tasks at the moment.
If you receive a confirmation mail of an order you didn't make, don't click on the link because it is highly probable that the link will have code behind it that will try to exploit some old vulnerabilities in your internet explorer. You should be at internet explorer 6.0 http://www.windowsupdate.com
