- Hacks that work just by changing the URL » Secure Solutions - This would be a good document to send to your developers, making sure they understand the threats associated with the source code presented.
- Low Hanging Fruit (Nessus Results) - I believe there are also lessons for the enterprise in this tech tip. It's no secret penetration testers seek out the low-hanging fruit. Enterprises can search for the same conditions, and provided you have a remediation process, easily neutralize vulnerabilities that are easy to exploit.
- If Hackers Didn't Exist, Governments Would Have to Invent Them - While the government is quick to point out that "hackers" are a problem, I'm not certain they would go to great lengths to make up stories about them, nor do they have to. I agree, we are sometimes fighting battles against the wrong adversary. However, threats come in many different shapes and sizes, including what is defined here as the "hacker."

- Nvidia probes breach of hashed passwords - I find it ironic that Nvidia, whose hardware is used to crack passwords, suffered a password breach.
- Vivotek Cameras Data Configuration Disclosure - I continue to be amazed that embedded device vulnerabilities are so easy to exploit.
