F-Secure Readies Security Software For Linux

F-Secure Corp. on Tuesday unveiled security software for open-source Samba
file servers and Linux, addressing a need that's growing within the
enterprise market.

The Finnish company announced the availability of antivirus software for
Samba that automatically detects and removes viruses from files stored on
the server. The new product is meant to protect all Samba-attached computers
from malicious code that could enter the network from a Windows or Linux

Next month, F-Secure plans to ship a Linux version of F-Secure Policy
Manager, which will extend centrally managed virus-scanning to Linux
workstations. The current product, which only runs on Windows, supports
virus scanning on Windows-based workstations, Microsoft Exchange, and
F-Secure's firewall, gateway, and other products.

F-Secure software supports products from Linux distributors SuSE (which was
recently acquired by Novell), and Red Hat Inc. Both new products are sold on
a per-CPU basis.

when is secure, secure?
Lo everyone, I wrote a custom authentication handler for PureFTPD, using a combination of authentication methods, for about 4 different types of users. So far, from testing it, it does look to work properly, and does it's job pretty well (and fast). I use #!/usr/bin/perl -W as well as use Strict, and use warnings, and the code returns no errors or warnings when run. I am right to presume that this basically only really tells me the my syntax and structure of the application is right? What's a good way to see whether it is actually SECURE... There is a couple of lines of...

How secure is secure?
Thanks to this group and all the high tech individuals who frequent it I have learned how to protect my PC from the inside out. But what about security risks to my info 'before' it gets to my computer? Like my mail box on the server. Could someone hack into that and thumb through my mail? If so, how would I ever know? (The short story) We have a rogue employee at my work who one day decided to run the web site, she got in tight with the ISP, got tools to set and delete passwords on a protected directory on the server. Who knows if she has telnet access to other things, li...

F-Secure issues Linux Security 7.00 warning
</quot> F-Secure's Linux Security 7.00 Linux virus scanner contains a critical flaw which may cause it to delete directories on a computer. F-Secure warns that the software with the Client Edition keycode should not be used, and has initiated a product recall. An entry in F-Secure's Linux blog explains that slip-ups in quality control allowed a flaw to slip though the net which makes the scanner delete the /var directory and any contained subdirectories when the tool is operating in client mode. Users of the software can apparently check whether their installation...

Secure connections: how secure are they?
*QUOTE* ......... both useful and malicious information can be transmitted via network connections. Standard solutions protect computers against threats present in standard network connections, but aren't able to counter threats present in secure connections. Verifying the contents of a secure connection is impossible by virtue of its secure nature, as demonstrated by the different types of protection listed above. As a result, malicious data within secure channels can cause a significant amount of damage, and sometimes more than if it were to be transmitted via a standard, non-s...

How secure is AuthenticationTypes.Secure?
I understand that AuthenticationTypes.Secure requests secure authentication using Kerberos or NTLM (??). However, here is a scenario I am trying to understand. Let us say that I am having a regular ASP.NET site - with SSL certificates not installed on the web server. The login sends the request out to an AD server which also does not have certificates installed. However, I have set Secure flag to AuthenticationTypes.Secure. When the username and password data gets transmitted between the application and the LDAP server, how secure are the password and username info? In other words is this in...

Password secure...is it secure?
Yes I just got this baby and I LOVE it! Its great. I have stored all my passwords inside of it (and yes made a few backups from them in secure locations) How secure is this program really? It uses blowfish to encrypt the database but how strong blowfish? 128bits? 256? 448? Anything else I should think about it? I have putted it and its databases inside PGPdisk just to play it safe...but then again Im a paranoid. :) -- Markus Jansson ************************************ My privacy related homepage and PGP keys: http://www.geocities.com/jansson_markus/ ********...

form security against security
i have a form in my website which is to be filled by user and that form stores in database(sql server 2005). but someone told me that anyone can run script  in textboxes in that form and can damage database, so how to avoid such security lack.  it is common practice to use parameterized sql statements or stored procs to insure you are protected from sql injections attacks. if you concatenate user input directly into a sql statement, then you are at risk.Mike Banavige~~~~~~~~~~~~Need a site code sample in a different language?

How secure is secure enough?
July 28, 2008 (Computerworld) This story originally appeared in Computerworld's print edition. If there is a Holy Grail in the information security industry, it surely is the answer to the question, "How secure is secure enough?" It's a question that many security managers have either avoided answering altogether or tried to quickly sidestep by throwing a fistful of mainly pointless operational metrics at anyone who cared to ask. http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=321921&intsrc=hm_list -- "Never d...
