Sorry for the late post folks. Been a busy, busy day. Below you find a post by RSnake begging for discussion, EFF pushing for modification to DMCA, a method to secure BGP, how we communicate to our users is important, the final part of an risk assessment using FAIR, SQL firewalls, and the fact that BeanSec is next week. Have a great weekend.
