Adobe Flash (1996-2015? 2016? SOON?)

Have you kept up with your Flash patches (TWO more major vulnerabilities found in the last week), or is is time to disable it in your browsers or just uninstall it completely? (Uninstall in Windows | Uninstall in Mac) A few hours ago, Mozilla started blocking Flash by default in Firefox. Facebook's new chief security officer wants to set a date to kill Flash. And YouTube gave up on it ages ago, so you don't need Flash to see cute videos.

Windows Vulnerabilities XPlained

Windows Vulnerabilities XPlained I've always used Gibson Research's website to test my Windows system for vulnerabilities. With the latest BLAST aimed at MS, I thought to share his site with the class. While Mr. Gibson obviously has some axes to grind and bones to pick with Microsoft and with various software firewall makers, his explanations of how Windows can be XPloited in terms that are fairly easy to understand is most appreciated. Be sure to check out the numerous free utiltites (small downloads! I mean, really small!) that will help you plug nearly every hole in your Windows.
Didn't know MS had shut down www.windowsupdate.com til just now, either

Oh. My. God. Microsoft continues to amaze me and all its users with increasingly alarming security vulnerabilities. The Office 2000 Clipart Gallery (clipart for chrissakes!!!) can compromise any Win95/98/NT/2000 machine with something as simple as an email message read in Outlook. Here's Microsoft's take on it, and their patch.
