  2. EFF has a new tool that tracks the changes to the Terms of Service of some of the larger organization on the web like Facebook, Goggle, etc. Pretty cool.

  3. A nice article with some interesting ideas about putting things in your app that when accessed indicate you are under attack. I can think of a name for that, but it has a very unfortunate acronym, so will refrain from writing it here.

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.
