    AO Security Dicussion Spotlight(s) on EIT - 10.10.03

    Hey. An update on the latest AO mentions and security stories on EIT.

    Poor Valve. If you've been anxiously awaiting HL2, looks like you may have to wait a lot longer. Also, coming soon... a review by a fellow AO community member!

    Have a great weekend.

    AntiOnline Security Spotlight: Loose Valve - October 9, 2003
    Slowly and deliberately, Valve's prized Half-Life 2 source code trickled out of their networks and onto the Internet at large. Bad news for their ardent following and even worse for a developer in the intensely competitive video game market.

    As the old saying goes, no good deed goes unpunished. Such was the case of an alert computer user at a school's library.

    News:

    Firms join forces to provide businesses with secure wireless networks.

    Worm Spreads Through Its Own SMTP Engine - October 7, 2003
    W32/Gibe-F is a worm that spreads by e-mailing itself via its own SMTP engine to addresses extracted from various sources on the victim's drives (e.g. MBX and DBX files), according to Sophos, which issued an alert Monday.

    Microsoft Plugs Browser Hijack Holes - October 6, 2003
    The company responds to browser takeover warnings and issues a 'critical' cumulative patch for its flagship Internet Explorer browser.

    Trojan Takes Over Browser, Changes DNS Server Setting - October 3, 2003
    Several security vendors Thursday issued alerts for QHosts-1, a Trojan whose purpose is to 'hijack' browser use.

    ...and here's a story that was AIMed to me today that may be of interest to those of you following spyware/ID theft issues:

    What are you implying?

    It's been my experience here on AO that this community is made up of upstanding individuals of the finest character.
