Submission + - Anti-virus software in Klingon->

grahamlee writes: "In what looks like a pre-launch leak, British security software company Sophos have released a Klingon version of their threat detection tool. From an anonymous coward quoted in an article over at The Register, "While other people are worried about down turns in IT spending, it seems that some people in Sophos have had the time between lighting cigars on £50 notes to turn out a version of the product in Klingon.""

Submission + - Improve your Mac's physical security->

grahamlee writes: "Sophos (my employers) recently published a paper I wrote detailing 10 ways to better secure your Mac laptop from physical data theft. As a bonus, I don't mention buying anti-virus software once (argh! I said it!); all of the steps described in the article can be performed on a stock Leopard system."

Submission + - Six years on, Linux RST-B infections still rife->

grahamlee writes: "Security firm Sophos' blog describes a detection tool for the Linux RST-B virus, which has been in the wild for six years but is still showing up on the firm's honeypots. By running the detection tool, Linux users can help SophosLabs to research the extent of RST-B infection and perhaps understand why it is still infecting Linux boxes, despite being detected by many different Anti-Virus programs.

[Disclaimer: I work for Sophos]"
