    more for corporate security, but http://www.honeynet.org/ is a real interesting site about setting up honeypots on a network

    Exclamation PacketDefense

    Just started a new site solely dedicated to Information Security issues mainly aimed at the InfoSec professional. I have live security news feeds, live feeds of the popular maillists, advisories, tools. Also, the forum membership and participation is starting to take off. Topics in the forums include crypto, forensics, firewalls, vpns, malware, policies, etc.

    I visited your site. Very nice indeed.

    I hope you do well. Some security sites show a distinct bias toward software authors who are cronies, or who kow-tow to them. I do hope your site strives toward a more objective approach.

    In case that last remark makes you wonder -- no, I am not a software writer. Just a user. :-)

    Here are a couple sites I've used in the last few years to help out with security and other helpful info:

    - http://www.blackviper.com - great resource
    - http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm - Black Viper's WinXP service explanation and guide

    - http://grc.com/default.htm - Steve Gibson and his Security Tips/Tricks

    There are also a lot of other things you can do, such as trace your emails via the headers and learn how to read them, use anonymizers to prevent someone from tracing you and surf the internet with anonymity (basically site's which normally could ascertain your "real" IP address will no longer be able to, instead they'd be given a bogus IP - same with the emails, they'd be given a bogus email address which couldn't be traced back to you)
    Using Proxy servers basically routes your connection through another remote/local server which has a completely different IP...another way to surf with anonymity. (just some useful info )

    A few other resources and interesting links are listed below for your enjoyment

    - http://www.wbglinks.net/pages/watchmen/ - Ever want to see the faces behind those secretive hackers?

    - http://www.insecure.org/

    - http://www.visualware.com/download/index.html - a good source of useful software, if you have ZoneAlarm (any version) I suggest checking out VisualZone which uses ZoneAlarm's access logs to trace those who attack you, and has a couple other "nice" features

    - http://neobytesolutions.com/invsecr/

    - http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers - ever want to know what each of those THOUSANDS of ports on your computers are for? This site tells you what most of those 65,000 or so ports are for, and some other info

    - http://skuz.net/potatoware/ - Anonymity

    - http://www.securityfocus.com/ - A great security-oriented resource

    - http://isc.incidents.org/

    - http://www.arin.net/tools/whois_help.html - Everyone should know how to do a WHOIS search, it's real simple: enter in the IP and hit enter. Use for your own protection only.

    My kids are driving me crazy, HELP!!!!

    Everytime my kids do something to piss me off I change the password on the compture before I go to work. However, they always seem to hack it or figure it out. There is no way they could be just guessing it. They have to be using some back door to XP Pro. To top it off, they leave a note pad with the password written on it by the PC just to let me know they got by it. If they were using the Ctrl+Alt+Del they still wouldn't know what the accual password was. What can I do, short of beating them?

    I saw something about this on TechTv on ~1/27/04. Some person called in to ask for help because he had lost the password for his computer, which was running under WinXP. The TechTv host identified 3 *hacks* that can be downloaded to crack an XP password. Amazing!

    Only thing I can think of is to get an external Hard Drive {they're pretty cheap now} & make it your Windows boot drive. Format your internal HD, then use it, in the future, for data only. Put all programs on the external HD. Then {when the kids annoy you} you can take the external HD with you -- OS and all.

    Why not take the cable modem to work, assuming you are on cable.
