Submission + - OWASP ModSecurity Core Rule Set v3.0 released

dune73 writes: The OWASP ModSecurity Core Rule Set v3.0.0 release is now available. The OWASP CRS is a widely used Open Source set of generic rules designed to protect users against threats like the OWASP Top 10. The rule set is most often deployed in conjunction with an existing Web Application Firewall (WAF) like ModSecurity. Four years into the making, this release comes with dozens of new features including: reduced false positives (by over 90% in the default setup), improved detection of SQLi, XSS, RCE and PHP injections, the introduction of a Paranoia Mode which allows to assign a certain security level to a site, and better documentation that takes the pain out of ModSecurity. We are so excited about this, we want to make it into movie. In fact, we have already started the project with a poster.

Submission + - Sun Releasing 8-Core Niagara 2 Processor

An anonymous reader writes: Sun Microsystems is set to announce its eight-core Niagara 2 processor next week. Each core supports eight threads, so the chip handles 64 simultaneous threads, making it the centerpiece of Sun's "Throughput Computing" effort. Along with having more cores than the quads from Intel and AMD, the Niagara 2 have dual, on-chip 10G Ethernet ports with crytopgraphic capability. Sun doesn't get much processor press, because the chips are used only in its own CoolThreads servers, but Niagara 2 will probably be the fastest processor out there when its released, other than perhaps the also little-known 4-GHz IBM Power 6.
