- WordPress plugins Trojanised, spotted, fixed - I get nervous when the application I am using supports plugins and add-ons that are not written or even checked centrally. It compromises the security of the framework.
- Patching Flash - CVE-2011-2110 post-mortem - People patch Flash quicker than Java, however we can still get an improperly signed Java application to execute code. In fact, we can even purchase a certificate, rid ourselves of the warning, and still get code execution, and to throw in a bonus we can bypass anti-virus. You don't need a vulnerability to compromise a system.
