Probably one of the most important talks on Cyber Security ever presented. Dr. Singer's perspective is not only very well organized, but also highly pragmatic with little bias no matter where you stand on the controversial issues.

I think this has to be my favorite TED talk of all time. I could be biased based on the speaker's background and how her locality overlaps with my own somewhat.

Have a look now or add it to your YouTube "Watch Later" playlist. Highly recommended!

Microsoft thanks Kristian Erik Hermansen for 0day reported in Microsoft Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG) 2007 SSL VPN, which is now re-branded as Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) and has the security issue fixed. The 0day I reported would allow compromise of the SSL VPN tunnel.
