No more security problems or what?

16/08/2007 Written by Jakub Maslowski

hackerGer­many is the first one of Euro­pean coun­tries, where very strict rules have been intro­duced, rules that will (atleast this is the opin­ion of gov­ern­ment) pre­vent hack­ing. Anti-​hacking law says now, that cre­at­ing or pos­s­e­sion of tools related to secu­rity that could poten­tially be used in attacks, is now forbidden.

Amend­ment of this law defines clearly that also Denial of Ser­vice attacks and tar­get­ting sin­gle hosts/​targets are offence to it. “Hacker” — per­son who com­mits seri­ous breach can now be sen­tenced to up to 10 years in prison. Con­tro­ver­sion — that word describes quite good, what is now in head of Ger­many secu­rity pro­fes­sion­als, who are not sure, if they are allowed to do their job. For exam­ple, cre­ation or pos­s­e­sion of tools that could be used in more then one way.

Laws and personal data protection

14/08/2007 Written by Boris Mutina

lockFor­mer coun­tries of the East block behind the Iron wall are still try­ing to develop bet­ter laws to serve their cit­i­zens. Some­times from this strug­gle are com­ming results that will make your hair grey in young age. Slo­va­kia, for exam­ple, is try­ing to make an amend­ment to the Health care Act .

As lek­var in his blog on com­mu­nity web­site black​hole​.sk stated: “George Orwell has been finally beaten…”. In the pro­posed amend­ment there is great part talk­ing about build­ing “National reg­is­ters and ascer­tain­ings with list of per­sonal data, pur­pose of usage and perime­ter of affected per­sons”. Strange name, that is cov­er­ing national data­bases of per­sons with spe­cific dis­eases, their disease’s progress, per­sonal data…

Tools vs. talent

13/08/2007 Written by Jakub Maslowski

talentToday secu­rity indus­try is as inter­est­ing as never before and peo­ple are into it for dif­fer­ent rea­sons. Some of us are into it because of end­less oppor­tu­nity to learn, some are because that spe­cial knowl­edge can gain them fame, then there are peo­ple with mali­cious inten­tions, and finally there are peo­ple doing it for cash.

While its not our job to tell you who is bad and who is not we often think about future of this “busi­ness”. Research­ing takes up time, and time is cash, it also require knowl­edge and experience.


But is the tal­ent and as we called it before — spe­cial knowl­edge — really required in security?
