Latest News Security is always evolving and every day there's some new way to combat threats. This 'undercover' system, as it is being called seems like it an interesting step in a new direction - especially since it can help protect against people snooping over your shoulder! Researchers have built a prototype authentication technique that could ultimately reduce the risk of attackers hacking users' credentials via a keylogger or spyware.

The so-called Undercover system, which was built by Carnegie Mellon University faculty members and students approaches authentication differently: It hides the authentication challenges rather than the user's input or password during the authentication process.

Latest News From the WordPress website:

WordPress 2.3.3 is an urgent security release. If you have registration enabled a flaw was found in the XML-RPC implementation such that a specially crafted request would allow a user to edit posts of other users on that blog. In addition to fixing this security flaw, 2.3.3 fixes a few minor bugs. If you are interested only in the security fix, download the fixed version of xmlrpc.php and copy it over your existing xmlrpc.php. Otherwise, you can get the entire release here.

Also, there is a vulnerability in the WP-Forum plugin that is being actively exploited right now. If you are using this plugin, please remove it until an update is available from its author.

Latest News Crispin Cowan, the Linux security expert behind StackGard, the Immunix Linux distro and AppArmor, has joined the Windows security team.
Originally posted by a blogger over at Microsoft. It's interesting though - what is making Microsoft go for Linux security professionals? Is there something inherently more effective about security developers with an Open Source background? Something else?
