Every day or so you will find here a list to articles I have saved to furl and that seem interesting enough to keep by the hand. Takes just a minute copy paste and makes life easier for you as Furl doesn't have a widget yet to show you the articles of the day.
First and all there are some new viruses and trojans and spambots making the round. So control tomorrow if your antivirus installations are uptodate and be careful when opening mails.
Secondly there are some new exploits out and you should upgrade some programs.
* exploit against photoshop and paint shop pro with malformed .png and .bmp images
* exploits against Trillian make interception of your conversation possible and more (so you should update)
* gtalk from Google can be used to transfer files, but that is a bad idea now it seems that one can send code with the files
* winamp should block all mp4 files because they can be used to trigger code on the pc after a new exploit was developed
* you should also be sure that the java (web start) clients are updated to the latest version because security restrictions can be bypassed
and this maybe the most important on a traditional network
A compiled Windows (2000/2003/xp) versions are now avalable from isc.org
For the last couple of months I have been playing with several web2.0 services and also thinking about what to do with all the data on my pc and several websites. This blog ain't so easy to use for forms and every solution had something that made it not the best choice for every question. So I had to find several solutions at different web2.0 places. You can answer that Google, Yahoo and MS try to give an allround solution, but it is not always as good as the original. They can buy the original as they do (but I hope they don't mess it up afterwards....)
So I have decided to use bloglines.com for my RSS feeds and FURL.net for articles that need a copy before they disappear or become expensive.
Meanwhile working at something else that will be finished in some weeks and will be beautiful and useful. So you will have to wait a little.
If you become member of honeypot.org you can ask it to monitor your IP space and to inform you if one of your pc-servers is being used in different kinds of attacks somewhere over the world.
You can also add the code of honeypot.org to whatever website or blog and so help get the bad streams. Do it.

Bijna honderdduizend scouts, jong en oud zonder onderscheid van taal, ras, religie, afkomst, land, regio hebben vandaag samen een hele plesante dag doorgemaakt in Brussel. Een dag om nooit meer te vergeten. Ook mijn kinderen waren er.
In de hoop dat we zo samen een beetje kunnen bijdragen aan een betere wereld.
