Practical Lock Picking: A Physical Penetration Tester's Training Guide [Paperback]

Great book for the beginner or an old pro. Been reading lock picking books for 35 years and this is one of the best... Deviant Ollam, one of the security industry's best-known lockpicking teachers, has assembled an instructional manual geared specifically toward penetration testers. Unlike other texts on the subject (which tend to be either massive volumes detailing every conceivable style of lock or brief "spy manuals" that only skim the surface) this book is for INFOSEC professionals that need essential, core knowledge of lockpicking and seek the ability to open most locks with relative ease.

Cuban Spy Gets Life Without Parole, Wife Gets 6 ½ Years

The 73-year-old great grandson of Alexander Graham Bell was sentenced Friday to life in prison without parole for quietly spying for Cuba for nearly a third of a century from inside the State Department. His wife was sentenced to 5½ years.

Retired intelligence analyst Kendall Myers said he meant his country no harm and stole secrets only to help Cuba's people who "have good reason to feel threatened" by U.S. intentions of ousting the communist Castro government.

But U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said Myers and his 72-year-old wife, Gwendolyn, had betrayed America and should receive heavy punishment.

本: běn. The Chinese character 本 signifies an origin or the beginning place; It signifies exactly what the first version of the NanoNote is: a beginning.
The 本 version of NanoNote is an ultra small form factor computing device. The device sports a 336 MHz processor, 2GB of flash memory, microSD slot, head phone jack, USB device and 850mAh Li-ion battery. It boots Linux out of the box and also boots over USB. It’s targeted squarely at developers who see the promise of open hardware and want to roll their own end user experience. It’s the perfect companion for open content; we envision developers turning the device into a music or video player for Ogg or an offline Wikipedia or MIT OpenCourseWare appliance. Or you can simply amaze your friends by creating an ultra small handheld notebook computer. You choose the distribution. The 本 Nanonote is the first in a line of products that will see the addition of other hardware capabilities. Get your NanoNote and start a Nanoproject today. Or join one of the existing projects in our developer community.

Salmonella outbreak tracked by shopper cards

What do you think - good thing or bad? Can certainly see the good use, but what if used for the wrong reasons? A witch hunt of sorts...

Health authorities in the U.S. have for the first time used department store credit cards to help trace the source of a recent salmonella outbreak that left hundreds of Americans ill.

Investigators at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were scrambling to find the source of the outbreak when they hit upon the idea of tracking grocery purchases of those who became ill.

With permission from the patients, health authorities followed the trail of grocery purchases to a Rhode Island company that makes salami, then zeroed in on the pepper used to season the meat.

Report: The Command Structure of the Aurora Botnet: History, Patterns, and Findings

Did the "experts" get it wrong? Were the attacks on Google by amateurs?

"Many security vendors have explained the operation against Google, dubbed “Operation Aurora,” using a military vernacular. However, based upon analysis of exhaustive data surrounding these attacks and examination of both the malware and the CnC topologies used by the criminals behind Aurora, it appears that this threat can best be classified as a just another common botnet attack – and one that is more amateur than average."

Defrauding and Hacking Ticketmaster

This really a hack?

"To defeat the Online Ticket Vendors' technologies, the defendants worked with computer programmers in Bulgaria to establish a nationwide network of computers that impersonated individual visitors to the Online Ticket Vendors' websites, the indictment alleges.  The network – described as the "CAPTCHA Bots" in the indictment – gave Wiseguys the ability to flood the Online Ticket Vendors' computers at the exact moment that event tickets went on sale."

Martial Law for Cyberspace?

Danger Will Robinson - the iPhone will be the end of civilization!

The federal government isn't prepared to cope with a widespread cyber attack, former top Bush and Clinton administration officials said Tuesday.

The officials participated in a public cybersecurity war game, where they simulated how the government would respond to a widespread cyber attack. The scenario started with malware spread through an iPhone app; the attack eventually crippled cell phone networks and Internet service, and it ended with much of the East Coast without power due to a failing electrical grid.

Monday - The Setup

The whole thing started when my plane landed in Los Angeles on Monday afternoon at 2:55pm coming from Cabo San Lucas. The guy sitting next to me on the plane asked me to loan him a pen so that he could fill out his customs form. I watched him fill out the form and clearly remember his birth year of 1984, but am a bit unsure about his name. I think it was -----, but in this story, we will refer to him as Pinche.
