Awesome debate on fear and security

Bruce Schneier has a great piece on fear and logic and the nuclear industry.

The best part is the comments. In the comments, you can really see some of the interplay between fears based on facts and logical reasoning and fear based on raw emotions.

It is interesting to see how some commenters compare the risks to other things that we accept as "normal" or "reasonable" VS those commenters who try to support their comments with gut feeling and fear-mongering.



Metasploit Tutorials...

Offensive Security is hosting a series of tutorials related to using the Metasploit framework.

I haven't had the chance to take a look yet...but they sound promising.

These are being released in support of the Hackers for Charity project that Johnny Long is associated with...from the tutorial homepage:

"This free information security training is brought to you in a community effort to promote awareness and raise funds for underprivileged children in East Africa. Through a heart-warming effort by several security professionals, we are proud to present the most complete and in-depth open course about the Metasploit Framework."
