Quickies and L0pht News

There have been a lot of things happening in the security world lately that I have wanted to write about like Geekonomics, the half million pictures pilfered from MySpace and the accompanying torrent file, how the NSA has wrestled control of the nations cyber-security away from DHS, how the recently proposed Protect America Act won’t, that Yahoo’s CAPTCHA has been cracked (not wide open but open enough), about Bruce Schnier’s excellent speech down under, how the Feds are getting rid of admin rights on XP boxes (about time) and of course about the CyberWar that wasn’t really. Like I said a lot of stuff going on recently to write about but I’ve just been to busy.

But what I really wanted to mention today was that the L0pht reuion I mentioned earlier seems to be becoming a pretty big deal. Did I mention the Pub Crawl?
 
P.S. Looks like the latest version of WordPress hosed some of my site. (Like the HNN archive) I’ll try to have it back online soon.
