Security - It's Not Just For Geeks

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the most recent articles is about an incident with a major botnet. 
| Apparently, the creators of the botnet decided to hit the "big red button" 
| which brought roughly 100,000 Windows machines to their knees in bluescreen 
| madness.   


Linux Poem Contest–Write and Win $5

,----[ Quote ]
| General:Write a minimum of 4 lines about Linux (could be distro specific like 
| Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, etc.)…maximum length in not there. The lines should 
| be rhyming though might not follow a meter system. No need to mention but 
| still: absolutely original lines should be submitted.   



Securing your organisation with open source

,----[ Quote ]
| While backup and recovery solutions are considered paramount in most
| organisations, they are possibly one of the most overlooked procedures in
| company security policies, mainly because they seem to try to achieve the
| opposite.
| Security demands strong encryption and overall policy control over employee
| and enterprise-wide information, while backup software tries to simplify the
| data centre recovery process regardless of platform, location and user,
| anywhere on the network.



Open source makes serious headway in the U.S. Department of Defense

,----[ Quote ]
| As I listened to David Mihelcic, CTO with the U.S. Defense Information
| Systems Agency talk about the benefits of open source on Federal News Radio's
| presentation of "Open Source Solutions - 2 Years In Review," I couldn't help
| but be impressed with just how far open source has come in the past decade.



Malware knocks Defense Department e-mail offline

,----[ Quote ]
| According to the Associated Press, the US Defense Department took
| 1,500 computers offline as the result of a cyber attack.


Navy CIO 'recognizes the importance of OSS to the warfighter'

,----[ Quote ]
| John Weathersby, executive director of the Open Source Software
| Institute, told Linux.com today that, effective immediately, the
| Department of the Navy has adopted a new policy which requires that
| open source software must be considered in every software
| acquisition the Navy makes.


State Department got mail and hackers

,----[ Quote ]
| A break-in targeting State Department computers worldwide last
| summer occurred after a department employee in Asia opened a
| mysterious e-mail that quietly allowed hackers inside the U.S.
| government's network.


The feds weigh in on Windows security

,----[ Quote ]
| "The benefits of this move are enormous: Common, secure configurations
| can help slow botnet spreading, can radically reduce delays in patching,
| can stop many attacks directly, and organizations that have made the
| move report that it actually saves money rather than costs money,"
| Paller wrote.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
