Comment Re:White Hat Security (Score 5, Informative) 93

The company I work for hired this firm to test our application late last year. I have been very impressed by their results. They perform both automated and manual testing. I receive an email after each test listing the number of vulnerabilities found and their severity. No details are sent through email. I can then log into their portal and read the details. Once an item has been fixed, you can use their portal to schedule that particular item for retest. The interface seems pretty slick and the people I've worked with on their team have been very easy to work with. I don't know how much they charge, unfortunately. I do plan to look into that once my own web application is far enough along.


Submission + - Mom blasts Ballmer over kid's crappy Vista OS ( 6

Lucas123 writes: "While on stage at a Gartner's ITxpo conference today, Ballmer got an ear-full from the mother of a 13-year-old girl who said after installing Vista on her daughter's computer she decided only two days later to switch back to XP because Vista was so difficult. Ballmer defended Vista saying: "Your daughter saw a lot of value"; to which the mother replied: "She's 13." Ballmer said that Vista is bigger than XP, and "for some people that's an issue, and it's not going to get smaller in any significant way in SP1. But machines are constantly getting bigger, and [it's] probably important to remember that as well." Says the mother: "Good, I'll let you come in and install it for me.""
