'I Hired a Hacker': A Security Manager's Confession  27 February 2001 
Source: ComputerWorld - Posted by Pete O'Hara   
I'm sitting at my desk, having a cup of coffee and a toasted bagel when I notice this young, blond, pimply-faced kid standing outside my cube with this smirk on his red, puffy-cheeked face. I ask him what I can do . . .

Various recent high profile defacements  23 February 2001 
Source: Attrition - Posted by Dave Wreski   
I had meant to do an update to my previous high profile summary of sorts. After drinking a Corona I began working on this post and it hit home yet again. Half way through writing this, another server on Hewlett Packard's network was defaced. I don't know what I find more ironic, that four HP servers were defaced this month, or that in each case they were running Windows NT or Linux instead of HP-UX (their own unix operating system).

Attrition statement on NY Times defacement greeting  21 February 2001

You, Too, Can Write an Anna Worm  15 February 2001 
Source: Wired - Posted by Dave Wreski   
This is exactly the type of thing that could happen to Linux. "The Anna Kournikova e-mail worm that whacked networks this week was not the work of a skilled cracker. It was created using one of the many virus-generating kits that . . .
