"Attack-Neutered Mutant Zombies"

Category : Commentary/zombies.txt

I found this while researching the literature (if you can call that literature) on computer security : "The Strange Tale of the Denial of Service Attacks Against".

I guess it's Shakespearen in its re-telling of the age-old struggle between the forces of good against evil, and about tragedy and hubris.

I've developed a healthy respect (and fear) of the carnage that the zombies and evilbots can wrought. I now want to know everything that can be learnt about this field.

Here's another useful article I want to bookmark: "Trends in Denial of Service Attack Technology" - CERT Coordination Center.

I've given Apple their pound of flesh in exchange for that Leopard Early Start Kit. The CD will come tomorrow but I've started downloading Leopard client. It's going to take 24 hours, by the look of it. I'll probably still be downloading when the CD arrives. (But the CD may not contain this latest build.)

It's not so early any more, but it's only now that I'm ready to take a look at it. Of course, I'm not going to be able to talk about it, under the NDA.

But, onwards, to wherever that is going to take us. Hope it's going to be fun.
