Just a quick note, We've been having some software issues with Mailman
so that's the reason some Fridays there has been no InfoSec News. This
batch, while pretty small, should still wet the appetite for the
hardcore information security news junkie until Monday. I will have an
annoucement soon on some major upgrades with InfoSec News that I am
really excited about.
On an unrelated note, but something I feel should get a brief mention,
one of our users on C4I.org got his papers to join his reserve unit in
Iraq, the financial hardship will mean a 60% decrease in his salary
and he's selling a number of his personal belongings on eBay so that
his wife can afford to keep up the house together until he returns
around November 2006. The Army does not consider a drop in income
something bad, but expected.
I will mention that he's one of the most patriotic Americans I have
ever met and we're doing what we can to help him come back to the U.S.
with everything he left with. Also with a 100% satisfaction score for
467 items sold on eBay shows you that he's not out to mess with
One item he has up for sale now is a Linksys Wireless A+G wireless
notebook card signed by by Kevin Mitnick at Defcon 11. This may or may
not do anything for you with Kevin's autograph on it but the current
price is at $19.00 with a day and a half to go.
Check out that auction, check out his other items for sale, and maybe
add him as one of your favorite sellers, keep in mind he will selling
alot of computer hardware and other gear in the coming weeks. But it
will be to help keep the mortgage payments going and to buy the
additional gear to protect him from all the insurgents wanting nothing
less than to kill Americans there helping their country in the
transition from the iron fisted rule of Saddam Hussein. I'm sorry if
this all sounds campy, but tears are welling in my eyes as I write
Have a wonderful and safe weekend, see you again on Monday,
