Comment Not surprising (Score 1) 122

For those in the Vegas IT/InfoSec community and have heard the stories (or have firsthand experience) of their hiring/screening process, this was only a matter of time. If you are screening out the folks with the hacker/InfoSec mindset (those that think differently/outside the box), are you hiring the best folks for the InfoSec role?

Seems the 'cool kids club' at Zappo's was not enough to defeat the attackers.

Comment Which RSS feeds? Where do you start? (Score 1) 243

First I will add a plug for https://www.bloglines.com/ â" RSS feeds where ever I can log in, via HTTPS. Great for those feeds I read whenever & everywhere; and for those I only check when waiting to board the airplane. In my bloglines collection I have around 400 feeds, which will grow after looking through these threads. :) Some selections that hopefully no one else has mentioned:

Submission + - Periodical Blacklisted411 disappeared again?

IrishMASMS writes: "It appears the periodical Blacklisted411 ( http://www.blacklisted411.com/ ) has disappeared again. After a little research as to why I had not received my copy lately; it appears they have stopped publishing. Their web site is the default Network solutions page; and I found a forum posting regarding the situation: http://www.binrev.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=29590 which also mentions that the Blacklisted folks have done this before.

Is it that hard to be up front & tell your subscribers that you are going to stop publishing? Perhaps, even a refund on subscriptions?"
