  • 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, they’d 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...
  • French and Germans Still Love Their Stereotypes

    The Local ^ | 15 Jan 2013
    Clichés and stereotypes are flourishing along the French-German border, with the French associating their eastern neighbours with beer and efficiency, and the Germans looking west for bucolic joie de vivre. Marking this month's 50th anniversary of the Èlysée Treaty of reconciliation between the European heavyweights, the German Embassy in Paris commissioned a survey from the ifop Institute to see what the two nations thought of each other. The results suggested that although the animosity generated during two world wars had gone, the stereotypes of the hard-working German and life-loving French had survived well into the 21st century. When asked for...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) and first girlfriend Sandra Lee have made a strong showing this year in the Ugliest Gubernatorial Holiday Decorations Contest, a contest which does not actually exist in reality. Sandra Lee revealed her festive entry via Twitter Tuesday, and HOLY SH** IT INVOLVES A SILVER TIGER: http://www.thedailydolt.com/2012/12/05/new-york-leads-race-for-ugliest-gubernatorial-christmas-tree/

    Just how offensive is Sandra Lee’s crazy Kwanzaa cake? A recent mea culpa from the creator of this Internet sensation raises the question: What is Kwanzaa food? It was the cultural mash-up that was destined for the Viral Video Hall of Fame: Sandra “Queen of QVC, First Lady of New York” Lee going all-out for African America with her Kwanzaa Cake. In the clip, the very perky — and it must be said, white — Lee takes her Semi-Homemade philosophy (yes, she refers to it as a “philosophy,” and yes, it’s trademarked) to new heights, using an array of store-bought...

    What is the Misfits Ball? Glenn announced on radio this morning that he plans to have a ball on Inauguration Day full of people who are no longer welcome in Obama’s Washington D.C. (editor’s note: We aren’t sure if the “That Guy” rule applies to digital, which is why we will occasionally mention the President by name until Glenn stops us). The event will be black tie, take place in the Dallas Studios, and Glenn is open to suggestions for the invite list. Some of the names thrown out there so far: Chik-Fil-A (not a person, Glenn), Hobby Lobby (again,...

    Python on plane wing: Passengers on a Qantas flight from Paupa New Guina to Cairns, Australia, videotaped a 10-foot python on the wing of their plane during a nearly two-hour flight.Stunned Qantas Airways passengers watched out their windows as a large python clung to a plane's wing during a nearly two-hour flight from Australia's northeastern city of Cairns to Papua New Guinea. The 3-meter (10-foot) python fought to stay on the wing, pulling itself forward only to be pushed back by the frigid wind.

    I went out to my garden by the barn and heard splashing in the horse tank. I saw movement and ran to see what the heck was going on when an exhausted squirrel rose up and tried desperately to claw her way out of the metal tank. She couldn't and was swimming in circles. I grabbed a hoe and after a few failed attempts, got her out. I was afraid to touch her with my hands because of fleas and potential disease. She finally used her teeth to bite the edge of the hoe and I was able to lift...
  • Veep Suggests Platinum Solution to Gun Control

    In what he called a “stroke of genius,” Vice-President Joe Biden suggested that President Obama could bypass both Congress and the Constitution by using an Executive Order to solve the gun violence crisis. “It was when I heard people talking about minting trillion dollar platinum coins to solve the debt ceiling thing that I got the idea of using platinum to get around 2nd Amendment objections to gun control,” Biden boasted. “If the President were to simply require that platinum be the only metal permitted in bullets we could effectively eliminate privately held guns without actually banning them.” The Vice-President...

    A guy cruises thru a stop sign and gets pulled over by a local policeman. Guy hands the cop his driver’s license, insurance verification, plus his concealed carry permit. “Okay, Mr. Smith,” the cop says. “I see your CCW permit. Are you carrying today?” “Yes, I am.” “Well then, better tell me what you got.” Smith says, “Well, I got a .357 revolver in my inside coat pocket. There’s a 9mm semi-auto in the glove box. And, I’ve got a .22 magnum derringer in my right boot.” “Okay,” the cop says. “Anything else?” “Yeah, back in the trunk, there’s...
