Poetic Weekly Security Review

September 28th, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

Another week has come and gone
and still the Internet hums along.
Despite predictions that are quite dour
like taking down our nation’s power.

Government security made the press
vendors, hackers, the DHS.
Google Apps and Cross-Site-Scripting,
through our mail the perps are sifting.

TJX, Canadians found, deployed Wifi
that wasn’t sound.

VMWare’s bugs in DHCP
shows there’s risk virtually

HD Moore’s become quite adroit
at extending the reach of Metasploit
hacking tools found a new home
run ‘em on your cool iPhone!

Speaking of iPhone
Apple’s played a trick,
hack your phone
it becomes a brick!

Missile silos for sale, that’s a fact,
but it seems the auctioneer’s been hacked!
Applied to Gap as would-be clerks?
They lost your data, careless jerks!

Microsoft updated computers in stealth
which affected the poor machines good health
It seems the risk analysis battle’s won
who needs ISO 2-7-00-1?

Maynor was back in the news,
as his sick days he did abuse.
He claimed to contract Pleurisy,
but was at home with Halo3.

More fun’s in store with M&A
another deal, another day;
Huawei and 3Com getting hitched
who knows if TippingPoint gets ditched?

It’s never boring in InfoSec
Like watching a slow-mo car-crash wreck.
I wish you well my fellow geek
until this time, same place, next week.

    You mispelled "pleurisy".

    You live!
    Thanks for the catch. I write these very quickly on my phone and often times I don't get a chance to spell check, so thanks!
