+ - WHO declares H1N1 pandemic

juggledean writes: "The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared a global flu pandemic after holding an emergency meeting, according to reports.

It means the swine flu virus is spreading in at least two regions of the world with rising cases being seen in the UK, Australia, Japan and Chile. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8094655.stm

"...there were people who believed we might be in a kind of apocalyptic situation and what we're really seeing now with H1N1 is that in most cases the disease is self-limiting,"

It will be interesting to see how the security community reacts."

+ - Craigslist sex scandal

juggledean writes: "On Monday, Jason Fortuny started his own Craigslist experiment. The goal: "Posing as a submissive woman looking for an aggressive dominan man, how many responses can we get in 24 hours?"

He took the text and photo from a sexually explicit ad, reposted it to Craigslist Seattle. The response was immediate. He wrote, "178 responses, with 145 photos of men in various states of undress. Responses include full e-mail addresses (both personal and business addresses), names, and in some cases IM screen names and telephone numbers."

In a staggering move, he then published every single response, unedited and uncensored, with all photos and personal information to Encyclopedia Dramatica .
