You have been infected!

Only “veterans” will remember “2001: A Space Odyssey” (1968, Stanley Kubrick) where HAL said memorable quotes such “I’m sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that.” or “It can only be attributable to human error.“. A new virus (BotVoice.A) actually spreading over the Internet use the Microsoft Vista speech feature

You said “SIEM”?

In my previous post, I talked about a “SIEM” environment. What’s behing this new accronym? SIEM stands for: Security Information and Event Management Today, IT platforms are very complex (exponential expansion, integration of mixed environments, worldwide deployed) and, in the same time, they must be reliable on a 24×7 basis:

Fake Wi-Fi networks

I just read a news about fake Wi-Fi networks discovered in the North Station in Paris! What a nice place like a train station to steal personal information. While waiting for their train, businessmen are perfect victims. A SSID like “Orange”, “Cegetel” (or any big player on the wireless market)


The IT professionals are addicted to new terms and abbreviations. In security too. New terms are invented to describe new technics or potential issues. Everybody know “phishing” This time, I found those: Pharming – is the manipulation of DNS records to redirect victims. Smishing – uses SMS (Short Message Service)
