Hash: SHA1

One good story and one very bad story to open this issue:

The bad news first:
Microsoft's monthly security bulletin, released Tuesday, includes seven
"critical" vulnerabilities and three "important" vulnerabilities. That
translates directly into an overload of "critical" tasks for everyone
responsible for trying to secure Microsoft software. And how long do
we have (days, hours?) until Internet worms start exploiting these
Microsoft programming errors?
The bulletin is posted at

Now for the better news:
Last week we told you about the first 2004 Computer Security Leadership
Award which went to Congressman Putnam and the staff of his
subcommittee. The second 2004 award was announced last Friday in London.
It goes to the United Kingdom's National Infrastructure Security
Co-Ordination Centre (NISCC) for succeeding at developing trust between
industry and government to such a high level that information sharing
is really happening.
Both awards are described at http://www.sans.org/press/isla100804.php
