  • Untangle Provides Open Source Security On A USB Stick (2008-10-01 21:35:13)
    The VAR Guy: "Untangle, which develops open source security solutions, has a rather interesting pitch for VARs and small businesses. It involves a simple USB stick known as the Silver Bullet."

  • New DoS Attack Is a Killer (2008-10-01 18:05:13)

Worse yet, unlike most DoS attacks, the machines often do not come back online once the attack is over. The victim system just doesn't respond any more."

  • The Linux Safety Net: Living Fast and Dangerous (2008-10-01 11:05:13)
    Raiden's Realm: "Are we living the fast and dangerous life in Linux just because it's so bullet proof and safe?
