Airport security has been in question many a times. This time Rhona Mahony managed to carry gunpowder safely bypassing airport security.
I also brought along a boarding pass for United flight 720 to Denver that I had created at home, in an computer art program. TSA agents accepted the boarding pass. They also took no notice at all of the gunpowder. Accepting the boarding pass was reasonable. Boarding passes that we design and print at home look just like ones designed by the airlines that we print at home. I had thought, though, that I might elicit a short conversation about the gunpowder. Mind you, I had packed the stuff safely. It was in three separate jars: one of charcoal, one of sulphur, and one of saltpetre (potassium nitrate). Each jar was labeled: Charcoal, Sulphur, Saltpetre. I had also thoroughly wet down each powder with tap water. No ignition was possible. As a good citizen, I had packed the resulting pastes into a quart-sized “3-1-1″ plastic bag, along with my shampoo and hand cream. This bag I took out of my messenger bag and put on top of my bin of belongings, turned so that the labels were easy for the TSA inspector to read.

Work-around either wouldn’t work in few cases or attackers would come up with a way to bypass this work-around. Read more »

Wow!! Jumbo patch released by Microsoft after a long time (5 years). Out of these 28 patches, 23 of them have been rated Critical, 3 have been rated important and two as moderate. The patches were issued in eight updates for Windows, Internet Explorer, Office, SharePoint, Windows Media, and popular development tools, Visual Basic and Visual Studio.
So these has to be in top to-do lists of security consultants. So one more reason to work or say drive the clients to work to patch.
