+Susanne Love My favorite line from the article:

"Actually, the combination of Devin and Hester seemed to disrupt their coverage."

10/13/2011 - Yet another one :) This was actually my favorite of all the bugs we found. This ActiveX control allows for the download and silent installation of arbitrary MSI files from the Internet.

10/11/2011 - And another one... This one in Unitronics. Unitronics OPC server installs this old third party ActiveX control. The control doesn't have a killbit, so you should follow the instructions in the advisory and manually unregister the control is possible.

Another eight SCADA bugs patched today, all of them memory corruption. Advisory here:

I've actually lost track of all the bugs we reported to ICS-CERT, good thing ICS-CERT is on top of their game. I'm going to post all of our public advisories here:

Wooo, I'm running Tough Mudder NorCal in two weeks! It's an 11 mile course with 23 different obstacles... one of the toughest endurance races in the world :)

Tough Mudder raises money in support of the Wounded Warrior foundation, if you're feeling generous you can donate using the link below:

This is not an ethnic joke...I was told by a Polish Army officer that they always light their obstacle courses on fire before training on them. Apparently, they are some of the toughest mothers in Europe. So you'll be in good company.

I finished ToughMudder NorCal this Saturday. It was MUCH tougher than last year... Squaw is no joke. The course was 12-13 miles (I stopped counting after passing the 11 mile marker). I saw a grown man cry, witnessed a guy break his ankle on an obstacle (and saved him from getting trampled), shook hands with a guy that had only one leg at mile 9-10, and earned my orange headband.

My favorite obstacle was the Chernobyl Jacuzzi :)

For some reason, I can always find my PowerPoint Zen at 30,000 ft.

For anyone else using PPT, I highly recommend PPTPlex. It's kinda like Prezi... kinda...
