Microsoft announces new security software

Microsoft has said it will begin selling network security software 
pre-installed on computers, taking aim at a market dominated by appliance 
security vendors.

Microsoft said it is lining up hardware partners such as Hewlett-Packard and 
Network Engines for its Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 
software, due to launch later this year.

Companies such as CheckPoint Software Technologies and SonicWall have been 
longtime players in the market for security appliances, which are networked 
computers, often with self-updating and configuring software, plugged 
directly into networks to protect them from attacks and allow secure access 
over the Internet.

Jonathan Perera, senior director at Microsoft's security technology unit, 
said the software was designed to run right "out of the box" without 
complicated installations.

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...

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...

Book Review: Software Security
I'm jealous. No seriously. If Cigital is actually ran as depicted in the book Software Security - Building Security In, I have to give kudos to Gary and the gang for making an impressive environment for software security. I'm a fan of Gary's writing. If you are a regular reader, you know I loved both his books on Building Secure Software and Exploiting Software. This latest book is, in my mind at least, a balancing act between the two previous books on the topic. Gary calls it the "Ying and Yang". Which makes total sense, since the book cover is of exactly that, ...
