Backdoor action continues
reported by:sil

Media coverage on security related topics: Out of control? Elias Levy of Security Focus has written a detailed article on the media's misuse of terminologies perhaps in an effort of overhyping articles possibly to obtain network traffic and or business. With this in mind we also point out the following misguided article from one of these sites.

Backdoor action continues

Backdoor saga continue as another backdoor is found on another e-commerce product. So the next step along with the OpenSource.org website we're awaiting will be when someone will register backd00r.org and nomitate some of these product lines for the uber backdoor of the year award. At least most vendors are quick to issue fixes for them... On a lighter note... to the people in #solaris on the efnet which seem like most suffer from some form of OS envy, heres a word of advice... Get a grip on thos ego's morons... An OS is only as good as the admin admining them can you say patches at SunSolve?

New Chip Offers DDoS Protection?
reported by:sil
Last Modified On: 24th April 2000 10:00am

News reports from Juniper Networks claim to have an internet chip which was designed along with IBM that is capable of preventing Denial of Service attacks. Dubbed "Internet Processor II" Juniper which is a rival of Cisco, Nortel, etc hopes administrators aren't aware of egress filtering and opt to spend extra money to buy new software as opposed to manually configuring their network properly to minimize DDoS'. Well seems like a neat toy to have in shop.

Price Waterhouse Coopers is set to unveil BeTrusted which seems to be somewhat of a mystery as to what exactly the company will be providing. It was reported in a recent article the company will compete with already established companies like VeriSign, Entrust, and Cybertrust so we'll re-track this article and get a better link.

May not be exciting or even new news to anyone who knows me. But its official Sil of www.antioffline.com and SpeedyGrl of www.ehap.org were officially married in March so thats why there were no updates as the honeymoon lasted longer than most expected but shorter than we had hoped. Rumor mill... Expect Speedbabyz/xp0kidz some time soon.

BeOS 5 hits the scene. While many have been using Linux and the BSD's lets not forgot what a great OS BeOS is. While still in what I would call a teenage state, seems like the staff at BeOS is busy behind the scenes and quietly making moves to break into the in what may be a Linux killer in a few years.

Regulation News

According to United States Government officials, new regulatory proposals on Internet security will not include personal PC's. Seems like DDoS attacks which may have had a strong impact on the stance of Government regulations can be attributed as the spark for new laws. Have these officials overlooked the fact that many idiots in this world who would not be protected by these laws probably become "man-in-the-middle" attackers?

Some administrators are hoping officials will go lightly on mafiaboy, the alleged attacker who was charged with the DDoS attacks on Yahoo and E-Bay. Personally we think he should be held responsible and should pay for the bandwidth used in those attacks if he indeed was responsible for the attacks. Unless somewhere down the line no one lost a single cent due to his actions which is highly unlikely, he should dish out the fees associated for his actions.
