A Lesson in Cloud

A recent Threatpost article http://threatpost.com/en_us/a3t where Greg Hoglund comes pretty close to ranting about the actions of Anon and that they did not “hack” HBGary – they just weaseled their way into the HBGary Google account – does illuminate some of the issues with using Cloud services.

*Sigh* What’s ‘Google’ for BS?

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/39745736/ns/technology_and_science-security/ This stuff just won’t die – but what is even more annoying than the never-ending banality of this journalistic tripe, is the mind-numbing notion that Google does anything inadvertently.  In the words of Johnny Rotten ‘Bollocks!”.  You don’t inadventently War-Drive custom network-sniffin’, gas-sippin’, picture snappin’, Google-mappin’ vehicles through 100-some-odd countries by accident folks.  How …

Gone will be the familiar 4 octet (32-bit) addresses like 123.123.123.123, replaced instead with something like 2001:db8:85a3::8a2e:370:7334 – hexadecimal 128-bit.  Will certainly take some getting use to. IPv4 address space exhaustion can be blamed on many factors, the exploding accessibility …

Auto Application Changes Could Spell Trouble

Changes to the auto application mandated by the Ontario government poses some serious repercussions for Ontario brokerages.  From the looks of things the new app will be part of the TAM 10.5 upgrade due out in August.  As already discussed in the appliedusers forums we are already seeing issues with the 10.x TAM versions and …

A Diatribe on Dilution

Some have voiced concerns that having AppliedUsers as well as ASCnet threatens to dilute either the pool of knowledge or ASCnet membership and will have a negative impact on the support system for Applied products.  I do not buy into that line of thinking, AppliedUsers may provide some friendly competition (OK perhaps the friendly is …
