Open Source Databases Have Come of Age  28 September 2010 
Source: Tech News World - Posted by Anthony Pell   
Client/server systems with SQL interfaces jockey for position against upstart NoSQL systems with intimidating (and exciting) new models for data representation, distribution and consistency. In addition, more than a dozen embedded and special purpose databases have grown up to serve the needs of applications too small or too agile to require a full RDBMS.
 
Five Main Causes Of SMB Security Incidents  27 September 2010 
Source: Dark Reading - Posted by Anthony Pell   
Like you, I have also read many articles covering small business security, the authors of which have made up various lists of "top X threats" or "this year's biggest vulnerabilities," etc. So I thought it would be interesting to dig into a sampling of the data breach reports and collect some real data on causes of breaches and other security incidents in SMBs.

Developers of Samba have warned that every edition of Samba has severe vulnerability, which cyber-criminals can abuse without difficulty. The flaw makes all Samba versions till as early as 3.0 vulnerable. Incidentally, the 3.0 version was launched over 5 years back.
 
No OS is safe, expert warns  23 September 2010 
Source: IT Pro UK - Posted by Anthony Pell   
Preconceptions that some operating systems are safer than others are misguided, a security expert has claimed. In reality all systems have their flaws which hackers will attempt to exploit and, despite some peoples belief Linux and Mac users are safer, all are vulnerable, said David Jacoby, a senior security researcher at Kaspersky.
 
Linux Kernel Exploit Gives Hackers a Back Door  22 September 2010 
Source: PC World - Posted by Alex   
Linux is well-known for its security advantages over many other operating systems, but that doesn't mean it's immune to problems. A Linux kernel flaw first discovered earlier this month, for example, gives hackers a way to not just gain root privileges in 64-bit Linux operating systems but also to leave a "back door" open for further exploitation later.

How to hack IP voice and video in real-time  21 September 2010 
Source: Network World - Posted by Alex   
Corporate video conferences can still be easily hacked by insiders using a freeware tool that allows attackers to monitor calls in real-time and record them in files suitable for posting on YouTube.
 
Hole in Linux kernel provides root rights  17 September 2010 
Source: H Security - Posted by Anthony Pell   
A vulnerability in the 32-bit compatibility mode of the current Linux kernel (and previous versions) for 64-bit systems can be exploited to escalate privileges. For instance, attackers can break into a system and exploit a hole in the web server to get complete root (also known as superuser) rights or permissions for a victim's system.
 
Considering Security on Murphy's Network  17 September 2010 
Source: Enterprise Networking Planet - Posted by Anthony Pell   
Murphy's Law states that: "Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong". It's often used to explain why a piece of toast will generally fall jelly-side down when dropped, but apply it to the field of computer security and you'll realize something much more profound: It implies that your network is bound to be vulnerable for the most trivial of reasons.
