choicepoint-stiock-drops-10-percent-in-one-day

As we have discussed elsewhere in this Blog, there is value in protecting your information assets. We've talked about the impact of information security breaches on stock price. Well, Choicepoint provides a good case in point. This was not a “hacker” attack as labeled in the popular press (further moving the definition of that word from its original meaning), but rather a traditional scam that took advantage of a lax credentialling process (yes, Irony with a capital I) that apparently is fax-based.

citrix-and-security

PDP has recently pointed out how easy it is to hack into poorly configured Citrix servers, which can easily be found via Google et al. He's also posted information on how to hack Citrix in a more forceful way. So, it is a good thing that we've posted documentation on how to protect Citrix with WiKID two-factor authentication. Also, yesterday, I posted a similar how-to document for protecting for GoToMyPC Corporate.

citrix-on-the-need-for-two-factor-authentication

Specifically, two-factor authentication for Citrix Web Interface. The article doesn't say if Web Interface supports radius, but a quick google search seems to indicate it does. This configuration seems exactly the same as setting up WiKID and Citrix Access Gateway.

comment-on-the-t-mobile-attack

I'm sure everyone (in security) has seen the article at Security Focus about the T-Mobile attack and probably some of the great commentary about it, especially here.


I only have one comment: Everyone write your bank, cellular company, credit card company, utility companies and tell them that you want strong authentication and you want it now.
