Sintered Armorgel is here!

  The Deliverator belongs to an elite order, a hallowed subcategory. He's
got  esprit up to here. Right now,  he is preparing to carry  out  his third
mission of the night. His uniform  is black as activated charcoal, filtering
the very light out of the air. A bullet will  bounce  off  its  arachnofiber
weave  like  a  wren hitting  a  patio  door, but excess perspiration  wafts
through it  like a breeze through a freshly napalmed  forest. Where his body
has  bony extremities,  the suit  has sintered armorgel:  feels like  gritty
jello, protects like a stack of telephone books.

Serious 0-day Found in Every Version of IE

Stop using IE. Seriously, just stop. At least for now. A serious 0-day vulnerability which exploits MME HTML has been discovered in every existing version of Windows / IE. Until this gets patched it is essential not to use IE as a browser at all.

While this has just recently been made public, you have to wonder how long this has been exploited quietly by the “bad guys”

Damballa 2011 Threat Predictions

It’s that time of year for predictions of what will be coming our way in 2011. In many cases the security predictions you’ll read have a certain flamboyant air to them as they drop a clangor or two about how the world will be a better or more miserable place – from past experience those clangors are either completely off piste, or are an obscure spin on some well studied trend that’s been underway for a couple of years already.

So, with that cynicism behind us, instead of a bunch of “predictions”, I’m going to offer up a nice round number of 10 threat “expectations” for 2011:
