Security Specialist Leaves PHP Security Team  14 December 2006 
Source: Heise Security - Posted by Eric Lubow   
Stefan Esser, PHP security specialist and member of the official PHP Security Response Team has, he says, had enough - in his blog he has announced his immediate resignation from the PHP Security Response Team. He states that he has various reasons for doing so, the most important of which is that his attempt to make PHP safer "from the inside" is futile. According to Esser, as soon as you try to criticise PHP security, you become persona-non-grata in the security team. In addition many of his suggestions were ignored because the developers considered Esser's choice of words, too abrasive. He says that he had stopped counting the number of times he was called a traitor when he published a bug report on a vulnerability in PHP.

Introducing Stealth Malware Taxonomy  04 December 2006 
Source: Help Net Security - Posted by LogError   
Joanna Rutkowska writes: "At the beginning of this year, at Black Hat Federal Conference, I proposed a simple taxonomy that could be used to classify stealth malware according to how it interacts with the operating system. Since that time I have often referred to this classification as I think it is very useful in designing system integrity verification tools and talking about malware in general. Now I decided to explain this classification a bit more as well as extend it of a new type of malware - the type III malware."

 
What are the most common causes of security breaches?  03 December 2006 
Source: Help Net Security - Posted by Administrator   
One of the key internal threats to corporates is spyware, because it’s all too often introduced without malicious intent, by employees that naively click through a couple of pop-up browser windows, or install an unapproved yet ‘cool’ application on the network.
