From the Blogoshpere

0x000000 has the first of a series of pieces that cover Mozilla malware, how to write it and how to detect it, posted. Interesting stuff.

CG has a post up about a tool called Metagoofil and how it can be used to develop an email list. Very interesting stuff. I haven't played with it yet, but will be soon.

Tenable has setup a way for charities and classrooms that provide information security training to get a full professional feed for free. Way to go Tenable.

Have a good one.

Chris Eng at Veracode has Part 1 of Minimizing the Attack Surface up. Good read.

The Marshall Islands, a small country in the South Pacific, was effectively denied access to email by a denial of service attack.

Yahoo! Mail was vulnerable to a XSS attack which allowed access to confidential information. It's fixed now.

Some HSBC websites are also susceptible to XSS attacks.

Surprise, Surprise, China networks host a large number of the websites pushing malware.

Have a good one.
