AMTSO growing up?

It's been a busy few weeks. Last week I was in Krems, Austria for the EICAR conference.

The Stuxnet Train Rolls On…

… albeit more slowly than previously. Added to the resources page at http://blog.eset.com/2011/01/23/stuxnet-information-and-resources-3 today: A nice article by Mark Russinovich on Analyzing a Stuxnet Infection with the Sysinternals Tools, Part 1.

Cyberwar, cyberterrorism, cybersigh…(gosh, that's almost a palindrome…) However, if you get past the cyberbuzzwords, there are some interesting articles around at the moment. On the Infosecurity Magazine, there's an article called "Cyberterrorism: A look into the future", contributed by the (ISC)2 US Government Advisory Board Executive Writers Bureau.  http://www.infosecurity-magazine.com/view/5217/cyberterrorism-a-look-into-the-future/.

Pack up your troubles….

Somewhere back in the Dark Ages, I wrote some articles for Computer Weekly in the UK, as part of a series of articles called Security Zone. This is a regular series where the contributors are all members of (ISC)2, the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium*.

BBC Botnet Revisited

[update] Commentary by Larry Seltzer for eWeek:   http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Security/The-British-Botnet-Corporation-324874/ I don’t promise that this is my last word on the subject, but, having now seen the full Click programme and the BBC’s response to some of the criticism they’ve received, I found I had a few more things to say on the topic.
