I probably will end up doing a blogue about this, if only because I can use my Hallucinating Goldfish meme again. [Look it up, lazy sods.]

@snhcdftt No, I don’t. “Read the papers”? Why would I want to do that?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to snhcdftt

I guess it all depends on whether you choose to live in and be Premier of the reality of NSW, or a psychotic paranoid fantasy, Mr O’Farrell.

via Janetter for Mac

On the other hand, maybe I’ll have yet another peaceful night in one of the safest cities in the world, a city that’s ever safer each year.

via Janetter for Mac

Anyway, I’m staying in Sydney tonight. In O’Farrell’s Danger Zone. I’ll probably get hurt in a way that didn’t even have a name a month ago.

@eskimo_sparky I can’t call you crazy tonight, but if that’s the criterion then I could more often that not.

Cisco briefing over. Laksa ordered.

via Plume for Android

@jeffsonstein All this is from the Cisco report I tweeted earlier. I’m currently in the briefing at Cisco’s telepresence thingo in Sydney.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to jeffsonstein

Lesson from that, says Cisco’s Levi Gundert, is that the question is not “Are we compromised?” but “How long have we been compromised?”

via Tweetbot for iOS

A look at 30 enterprises networks [small N!] showed 100% of them were accessing sites hosting high-threat malware.

via Tweetbot for iOS

91% of compromises related to a Java exploit. It’s all about those goddam enterprise Java apps, methinks.

via Tweetbot for iOS

In September, 7 oil and energy sites were compromised by the same group, hitting visitors with drive-by malware.

via Tweetbot for iOS

Growth in risk and malware encounters is in specific industry verticals: resources, electronics, pharmaceutical and chemical, energy.

via Tweetbot for iOS

Cumulative annual security alerts are steadily rising, but is that in part because vendors are doing more vuln research on own products?
