Sits writes "UK banks have started urging their customers to install the Rapport security software but unlike previous efforts Rapport installs kernel hooks to encrypt key strokes, thawt screengrabbers and send off monitoring information for some Windows and OSX web browsers.

Sits writes "While talking about the Red Hat summit Chris Blizzard mentions how an ATI marketing spokesman was on stage. The spokesman said ATI knows it has a problem with open source and is committed to fixing it. Does this mean ATI will finally resolve alleged agpgart misappropriation, fast track the release of open source 2D drivers on its latest cards while releasing specifications for its mid-range cards or is ATI only concerned with fixes to its binary driver to maintain feature parity with competitors?"
