Skip to comments.Case Study: Pro-active Log Review Might Be A Good Idea

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!!!
