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
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?
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

it is actually SECURE... There is a couple of lines of...Secure connections: how secure are they?
......... 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...How secure is secure enough?

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.

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? Try converting it with: http://converte...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. :)

This quote is just a small portion of the article, but he stated exactly
what Sony seems to have missed. It's not _their_ computer.

companies against discouraging piracy in ways that also make
computers vulnerable. Stewart Baker, assistant secretary for
policy at DHS, did not cite Sony by name in his remarks Thursday
but described industry efforts to install hidden files on

Many experts believe that rootkits will soon be as troublesome as
viruses and spyware. And, Mark Russinovich, chief software architect
at Sysinternals, an advanced Windows utilities freeware site, is
probably the most vocal of them all. In this podcast, Russinovich, who
is also co-founder of Winternals Software, in Austin, Texas, talks
about the state of Microsoft security today and offers suggestions for
protecting Windows systems from rootkits and malware in the future. He
spoke to SearchWinIT.com's Joan Goodchild during the Microsoft TechEd
2006 conference in Boston.

One analyst wonders why it took so long to catch onto Sony's
use of rootkits on CDs and whether customers may have a false
sense of security.

for seven months before its cloaking rootkit was discovered,
