Uh, Hey Guys. Mind if I Blog Here?

We're down over at Hugh's place, possibly a part of the DOS attack Michelle's writing about.

Update: We are, in fact, part of the Hosting Matters take-down.

So, I had this login left over from when I used to hang out here and I figured y'all might not mind if I busied myself here for a bit.

Did y'all see that Pam Anderson is now writing op-eds for the WSJ? For real. Here's my favorite part (emphasis mine):

This issue has been on my mind a lot lately. It started when my kids went on a field trip to what was billed as an exotic animal refuge in Malibu. I excitedly tagged along only to find that it was like a shabby petting zoo that rents lions, tigers and a fascinating pair of chimpanzees to productions like "The Gong Show" to perform pathetic tricks under lights in front of loud crowds--conditions that are very stressful. I chose to have that kind of life; these animals didn't.

Hee. But I have to admit I was bummed there's no WSJ stipple picture of Pam in all her glory.

Pam Anderson is worried about the stressful conditions of the animals in the zoo? I'm sure if the animals could talk they would tell her it's a lot more stressful in their natural habitat where they're part of the food chain.

I wonder if hosting matters useing IVE and Netscreen firewalls? See below SANS internet storm center, handler's diary

and little flaws in IVE (NEW)

Juniper Networks released a vulnerability announcement today.
From: http://www.juniper.net/support/security/alerts/PSN-2006-03-013.txt
"Title: IVE ActiveX client vulnerability
Date: 25 April 2006
Version: 1.0
Impact: Client side code execution in context of Internet Explorer
Affected Products: IVE OS 1.x to 5.x
Max Risk: High
Recommended Actions: Upgrade the IVE software to any of the following fixed versions: 5.3r2.1, 5.2r4.1, 5.1r8, 5.0r6.1, 4.2r8.1"

It appears that an activeX control that is installed when using IVE can be remotely exploited.
The exploit described by eeye looks fairly trivial.

IVE is Instant Virtual Extranet which provides SSL VPN control with centralized reporting, monitoring and configuration management. It is basically a host security auditor and can be used as an element of their netscreen remote client. It can verify things like recent virus signatures and scans. Which is important before letting some machine on to your corporate network!

eeye has published the details here:

Bleeding Edge Snort team has developed a signature for this.
