Skip to comments.Case Study: Pro-active Log Review Might Be A Good Idea
Posted on 01/15/2013 6:43:14 PM PST by GOPsterinMA
Such a case came about in 2012. The scenario was as follows. We received a request from a US-based company asking for our help in understanding some anomalous activity that they were witnessing in their VPN logs. This organization had been slowly moving toward a more telecommuting oriented workforce, and they had therefore started to allow their developers to work from home on certain days. In order to accomplish this, theyd set up a fairly standard VPN concentrator approximately two years prior to our receiving their call. In early May 2012, after reading the 2012 DBIR, their IT security department decided that they should start actively monitoring logs being generated at the VPN concentrator. (As illustrated within our DBIR statistics, continual and pro-active log review happens basically never only about 8% of breaches in 2011 were discovered by internal log review). So, they began scrutinizing daily VPN connections into their environment. What they found startled and surprised them: an open and active VPN connection from Shenyang, China! As in, this connection was LIVE when they discovered it.

This guy deserves an award!
There is a fine line between lazy and genius sometimes
Bob was running his own H1-B program without the need for that pesky immigration thingie. WTG Bob!
Seriously, he sent his VPN token to China? What an idiot.
I immediately had thoughts of the movie “Office Space” when I read this article.
He didn’t care...and got paid not to.
Not said was whether the company hitrd the Chinese guys for 20% and fired all their workers.
the word of the day for girl enthusiasts is:
Nicole Kidman of 2003 variety.
The Human Stain (movie)
Meh. I was never much into her.
“The Human Stain” ? Is that Bubba’s autobiography ?
I have always said that laziness is the mother of invention. If you enjoyed the work, you'd just keep doing it, and not try to find a better way.
yep!!! that is where they got the title!!! From the Bubba thing with Monique.
Monique ? Was that one of his Black hookers ?
Monica Samille Lewinsky (born July 23, 1973) is an American woman with whom United States President Bill Clinton ...
LORDY, LORDY, LOOK WHO’S FORTY!
Oh, yes. The vaginal humidor.
It’s about a “high yella” (the lighter than Halle Berry people you look at and wonder “hey is he like slightly black? I bet he is.” ) Black professor who passes as a Jew. I’ve never seen the whole thing. As a young man he’s played by Wentworth Miller, a real life quasi-Black guy, as an old man, Anthony Hopkins.
As an aside I find “high yellow” women like Rashida Jones very attractive.
I think the guy got the idea from here:
Nicole Kidman peaked in “Days of Thunder”. She’s yet ANOTHER victim of bad plastic surgery and too much smoking. Y U C K !
“As an aside I find high yellow women like Rashida Jones very attractive.”
Keep her away from the driver’s seat and HELL YEAH!!!
Troian Bellisario, from the NCIS and Pretty Little Liars fame (though I remember her best as the cute little kid on a Quantum Leap episode) is 50% black. (Her father is producer Donald Bellisario and her mother is actress Deborah Pratt) I doubt anyone would guess that from looking at her:
>> Nicole Kidman peaked in Days of Thunder. Shes yet ANOTHER victim of bad plastic surgery and too much smoking. Y U C K ! <<
I haven't seen her in a film in a while, although the last time I saw her she still looked attractive. What drives me nuts about Nicole Kidman lately is she increasingly WHISPERS all her lines in movies from the last 10 years. It's extremely irritating now. Geesh, lady, SPEAK UP!
WOW!!! She looks white...Italian or some type of Spanish...HOT!!!
Nicole Kidman: Maybe she thinks when she whispers it’s sexy...
I haven’t seen NCIS in a couple years since they put something else on at the same time that I wanted to watch more (I forget what it was). I’ll catch up with it eventually. Though I see she was only on that a couple times. Never watched the chick show she’s on.
I remember a character from a Quantum Leap episode (I am lame to remember QL) NAMED Troian, weird name so I’m not surprised to learn Bellisario has a daughter by that name.
From the looks of Bellisario’s ex-wife she has plenty of white blood herself so the daughter would be under 50%. She looks like the painting “The octoroon girl”.
Yeah, the funny thing is his ex-wife was playing the "Troian" character in that episode. His real-life daughter Troian appeared in a different episode, titled "Another Mother", as the 5 year old girl could see Al. (I'm a big Quantum Leap fan and have the whole series on DVD, as you might have guessed)

From what I've heard, Deborah Pratt simply identifies as African-American and says her family is black. I had no idea she was black until she me mentioned it. Of course, it could be like Obama where she's ignoring the white relatives. lol. Or she could just be a very light skinned black like Rev. Wright, who is lighter than the half-black Obama. (the leader of the "New Black Panthers" party looks pretty white too, ironic that all these 'hate whitey' people could pass for white) In any case, here's a photo of Pratt:
I remember that one. I watched QL when it first aired but I was pretty young, later when it was in syndication it became my favorite show for a while, saw every episode more than once. I wouldn't mind a reunion movie while Dean Stockwell can still walk.

Malik Zulu Shabazz (what a name)? He looks fairly Black to me.
