Comment: Re:Encryption and ease of use. (Score 1) 83

I haven't entirely thought this idea through, but I'm not aware of anyone having attempted such a thing.

Hmm, well, I've been in touch with a company in the Netherlands, http://www.nedsecure.nl/ who offer pretty much what you're suggesting.

Transparant email encryption through a webserver/webmailportal. So you can send encrypted messages to your clients, they get a notification mail, and can check the mail you sent online. Bit cumbersome perhaps, but well, technology probably improved from back in nov-2005 that I saw these guys at some InfoSecurity convention.

Unfortunately, the site seems to be dutch only, but dutch ain't too different from english, with some imagination ;)

Banner Ad on Myspace Serves Adware to 1 Million 390

An anonymous reader writes "Washingtonpost.com's Security Fix blog reports that a banner ad running on MySpace.com and other Web sites used a Windows security flaw to push adware and spyware out to more than one million computer users this week. The attack leveraged the Windows Metafile (WMF) exploit to install programs in the PurityScan/ClickSpring family of adware, which bombards the user with pop-up ads and tracks their Web usage."

The less time planning, the more time programming.

Working...
