Heya. I haven’t blogged in awhile but I do want to start getting back into it.
So, we’ll start with something small.
Just remember though, cookie theft isn’t the only credentials that can be stolen with XSS or other methods. ‘Dynamic’ phishing methods that don’t rely on a third-party site are still somewhat hard to detect and should be watched out for.
of the browser. Probably because the browser gets updated and the site is

It’s not particularly secure right now as it’s using Debian packages. They tend to be a little out of date. But at least it’s stable.

There was an article going around on a few sites today about Acunetix stating that 70% of websites are at immediate risk of being breached. Soon after, Joe Snyder not only disputed this claim, but bet Acunetix 1000$ they couldn’t compromise 3 out of 10 sites. I could use a thousand bucks and I bet even randomly selected I could get at least 5 out of 10 sites. RSnake wrote a post with a bit more info.
Also, Iwatsu selected Opera for use in their new VoIP phone. From the press release,
PRECOT (Premium Communication Tool) is a next generation solution over a broadband IP connection for the enterprise market. With Opera, PRECOT users can access Web mail or any Web page from the convenience of their screen phones.
It will also have phone to tag support, which basically turns any numbers formatted like a phone number into a link, when it’s clicked the phone will call it. Pretty nifty stuff.
Too bad I dislike phones.
