Here we go.

From the Blogosphere.

F-Secure has released their Security Threat Summary for the First Half of 2008.

(IN)SECURE Magazine issue 17 is available. Good stuff as always.

Continuing their week of War on WAF's (Web Application Firewall), ts/sci security talks about language specificity in WAFs.

Well, looky there, there's as a new Zero-day flaw in Internet Explorer. Who'd a thunk it? Caveat: It is for version 6.

From the Newsosphere.

Nothing today.

Have a good one folks.

Here are today's bits.

From the Blogosphere.

Marcin has posted a really interesting treatise at the ts/sci security blog about Web Application Firewalls. Some really good stuff to think about.

The Princess of Antiquity continues her series on Cryptography (Non-Technical) with a post titled Earlier Forms of Cyptography. Very well written and easy to understand with really good info.

Didier has given us another tool written in python, apc-pr-log, which uses the AirPcap adapter to log all probe requests with a SSID for easy viewing. Should be fun to play with.

From the Newsophere.

Whitehat Security has raised some VC cash. Congrats Jeremiah.

Sun has released version 8 of Identity Manager.

That's it for today. Have a good one.
