Spammers Taken to the Cleaners

Posted on 30 May 2002 by Demian Turner

New York state attorney general Elliot Spitzer, fresh from doing battle with Wall Street giant Merrill Lynch, has sued a marketing firm which allegedly sent millions of unsolicited e-mail advertisements.
Mr Spitzer’s lawsuit against Niagara Falls-based MonsterHut.com accuses it of falsely telling clients that it sent the e-mails with consumers’ consent.

Under New York state’s advertising laws, the company could be ordered to pay a $500 (£342; 538 euros) penalty for each unsolicited message.

Web Security: An Introduction to Worms

Posted on 30 May 2002 by Demian Turner

If you can control a million hosts on the Internet, you can do enormous damage. First, you can launch distributed denial of service (DDOS) attacks so immensely diffuse that mitigating them is well beyond the state-of-the-art for DDOS traceback and protection technologies. Such attacks could readily bring down e-commerce sites, news outlets, command and coordination infrastructure, specific routers, or the root name servers.

Second, you can access any sensitive information present on any of those million machines–passwords, credit card numbers, address books, archived email, patterns of user activity, illicit content–even blindly searching for a “needle in a haystack,” i.e., information that might be on a computer somewhere in the Internet, for which you trawl using a set of content keywords.

Third, not only can you access this information, but you can sow confusion and disruption by corrupting the information, or sending out false or confidential information directly from a user’s desktop.

In short, if you could control a million Internet hosts, the potential damage is truly immense: on a scale where such an attack could play a significant role in warfare between nations or in the service of terrorism.

Web Services — Long Overdue

Posted on 24 May 2002 by Demian Turner

Is there no end to all the constant innovation and never-ending streams of new products, devices, and services strewn at us from every direction, causing confusion and frustration each time we have to master yet another interface? Why must we adopt? Why are we not in control of the technology that surrounds us? Why does entering a friend’s new phone number into our PC require a particular sequence of keystrokes and mouse clicks, but that same information, entered into our Palm Pilot, Pocket PC, or mobile phone require a completely different interface—right down to relearning how to draw the letters of the alphabet? At the time, I found it great fun learning the Palm Pilot language, graffiti, now I don’t even use it.

Back To Class

Posted on 24 May 2002 by Demian Turner

from Devshed
If you’ve been programming for a while, you’ve probably heard the term OOP before – it stands for Object-Oriented Programming, and refers to a technique in which you create program “objects” and then use these objects to build the functionality you need into your program. And maybe you’ve wondered just how useful this is, and how you could go about adding this capability to your own code.

Well, wonder no more. Your prayers have been answered. Click here for the full article.
