Hello there! Just wanted to let you know that this Bits post is the last one you will likely see this year. I am taking some time off from the day gig and decided I am also going to do the same here. You might see a post or two if something strikes my fancy, but the Bits posts will be on hiatus.

We'llĀ  be picking back up on January 4th.

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