Spam Punishment Doesn't Fit the Crime  28 December 2004 
Source: - Posted by Vincenzo Ciaglia   
I hate spam as much as the next person, but recent decisions by courts in Iowa and Virginia demonstrate how fear of technology (and justifiable annoyance) can force the legal system to impose fines and sentences that are grossly disproportionate to the harm caused by spammers. This is not to defend or justify spammers, whose actions are at best deceptive, almost always annoying, generally illegal and frequently criminal. But when people who send e-mail are punished more harshly than those who commit war crimes in Rwanda, and are fined more than companies that destroy the environment, it's time to revisit our strategy.

WEP: Dead Again, Part 1  15 December 2004 
Source: Michael Ossmann - Posted by Joe Shakespeare   
This article is the first of a two-part series that looks at the new generation of WEP cracking tools for WiFi networks, which offer dramatically faster speeds for penetration testers over the previous generation of tools. In many cases, a WEP key can be determined in seconds or minutes. Part one, below, compares the latest KoreK based tools that perform passive statistical analysis and brute-force cracking on a sample of collected WEP traffic. Next time, in part two, we'll look at active attack vectors, including a method to dramatically increase the rate of packet collection to make statistical attacks even more potent.

Mobile & Wireless: Security was the Watchword in 2004  01 December 2004 
Source: Carol Ellison - Posted by Joe Shakespeare   
It's no surprise that the issue that topped the Wi-Fi agenda in 2004 was the same one that's plagued it almost from its introduction. Security, or rather "lack thereof," was an inherent problem in WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), the native security spec in the 802.11 IEEE standard.

Carrying On: Improve Security With Wireless  13 October 2004 
Source: NWC.COM - Posted by Mark Rechler   
I'm standing at the security guard's station. In the now-familiar corporate front-desk ritual, I sign the log book. The guard doesn't ask for my ID. I might have signed my own name, or I might have signed as Osama bin Laden, for all he knows. He doesn't look at what I'm carrying. He doesn't know or care about the camera phone in my pocket. Still, he hands me a paper sticker that says "Visitor" in red block letters. Armed with my badge of trustworthiness, I go on in. . . .
