Recently a report by McAfee has been released called the "Virtual Criminology Report" which is a report on Organized Crime on the Internet. Its a nice little read, and has some graphs showing some information about countries and their operations.

The internet is a huge threat to any Government agency, since its open for anyone to access. In recent news you might have seen some articles about how the US Government thinks that the internet is a terrorist tool, and that it should be monitored and controlled. Anything can be a terrorist tool if used properly, its not the medium that is the problem its what travels through it. If you’re not well enough equipped to stop people from gaining access to your network, don’t take the internet down with you.

Splunk 3.1: A search engine that indexes all your servers logs, scripts, code and message traps

I had the chance to try Splunk out about 3 months ago. The software was rather easy to install, however one thing that did seem to a little hard to use was the interface and the general working with inputs for the software. The search function was really neat, and easy to find errors that were occurring. The free version is limited but still usable, in a larger environment this product would probably be a life saver. Single server deployments, not so much.
