Use a wiki to integrate your information systems  02 April 2007 
Source: IT Managers Journal - Posted by Administrator   
Managing documentation and support requests and collaborating effectively are difficult tasks for many organizations.

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) is changing the final process of writing the third version of the GNU General Public License (GPLv3). Peter Brown, executive director of the FSF, says that the reasons for the change are the extensive revisions in the next draft and the need "to get the community back involved in the process" as it reaches a climax. The revisions deal with issues raised by the recent Novell-Microsoft deal, and by the community about language in the license about patents and digital rights management (DRM).

Crawling Ajax-driven Web 2.0 Applications  19 January 2007 
Source: Net-Security - LogError - Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
HNS is running an article about how the crawling of web applications. Its objective is to collect all possible resources from the server in order to automate vulnerability detection on each of these resources. A resource that is overlooked during this discovery phase can mean a failure to detect some vulnerabilities. The introduction of Ajax throws up new challenges for the crawling engine and new ways of handling the crawling process are required as a result of these challenges. The objective of this paper is to use a practical approach to address this issue using rbNarcissus, Watir and Ruby.

The report also describes recent specific incidents of sophisticated hacker attacks that take advantage of Web 2.0 technologies to embed malicious code in high-traffic web sites. In addition, the report includes a review of web security threats that emerged this year and the outlook for security trends in 2007.

DieHard - a new software that prevents crashes and attacks  03 January 2007 
Source: Help Net Security - Posted by LogError   
Today’s computers have more than 2,000 times as much memory as the machines of yesteryear, yet programmers are still writing code as if memory is in short supply. Not only does this make programs crash annoyingly, but it also can make users vulnerable to hacker attacks, says computer scientist Emery Berger from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. With such problems in mind, Berger created a new program that prevents crashing and makes users safer, he says.
