Total travesty of Justice for Julie Amero

Have you ever been surfing the net and hit a website that tries to launch a swarm of pop up ads. I am sure many of you have had this happen especially when using Internet Explorer 6.0 without any utilities to stop such action. Imagine being a teacher and having that happen during a class where students are exposed to pornographic images.

Well this happened to a teacher named Julie Amero in 2004, she was fired almost immediately and then prosecuted and tried shortly after that on a variety of charges stemming from the pop up swarm.

We all know that schools rarely have the latest technology and I doubt that they had software installed to prevent the actions that occurred. But what is a travesty is how it all turned out you are going to just shake your head. www.alternet.org

1 in 67 Websites contain IE security exploit

Asa Dotzer points to a pretty interesting study, now I am not one to buy into these types of studies on face value, but the sheer number of sites they found with exploits has made me begin to wonder why can’t their be a way to get these sites shut down. If there is a way to detect the sites that are intruding then we need a way to take those sites down. The number of sites going after Firefox is on the rise also. [Asa Dotzer]

World coming back to work and a huge Windows Security Issue

This broke last week but many have been away from their computers due to the holidays. Seems all of the news organizations reporting staff is finally catching up with what most of us have known since last week. The Windows flaw can cause a fully patched PC to be hacked by a malicious site putting malicious code in a image. Firefox users are more protected than IE users but not completely. Here is a link to another temporary fix, this is a unofficial patch and the associated story. [Patch] [ft.com]
