Good afternoon everybody! I hope your day is going well.

Here are today's Interesting Information Security Bits from around the web.

  5. Nifty tip on how to mount a filesystem using the alternate superblock when it won't mount normally. Of course, this is from a forensic perspective, but useful from a general perspective also.
