pGina tinc Charges Against the N.S.A.’s Thomas Drake On June 13th, a fifty-four-year-old former government employee named Thomas Drake is scheduled to appear in a courtroom in Baltimore, where he will face some of the gravest charges that can be brought against an American citizen. A former senior executive at the National Security Agency, the government’s electronic-espionage service, he is accused, in essence, of being an enemy of the state. According to a ten-count indictment delivered against him in April, 2010, Drake violated the Espionage Act—the 1917 statute that was used to convict Aldrich Ames, the C.I.A. officer who, in the eighties and nineties, sold U.S. intelligence to the K.G.B., enabling the Kremlin to assassinate informants. The government argues that Drake recklessly endangered the lives of American servicemen. Top officials at the Justice Department describe such leak prosecutions as almost obligatory. One afternoon in January, Drake met with me, giving his first public interview about this case.

Windows vs Linux Server On April 14th, 2006, Richard Stiennon wrote an article in ZDNet entitled Why Windows is less secure than Linux. Stiennon starts by saying: "Many millions of words have been written and said on this topic. I have a couple of pictures. The basic argument goes like this. In its long evolution, Windows has grown so complicated that it is harder to secure. In his post, Stiennon explains that both images (shown here) represent a map of system calls that occur when a web server serves a single HTML page with a picture. The resulting images were generated by Sana Security.

‘MegaSearch’ Aims to Index Fraud Site Wares A new service aims to be the Google search of underground Web sites, connecting buyers to a vast sea of shops that offer an array of dodgy goods and services, from stolen credit card numbers to identity information and anonymity tools. MegaSearch results for BIN #423953 A glut of data breaches and stolen card numbers has spawned dozens of stores that sell the information. The trouble is that each shop requires users to create accounts and sign in before they can search for cards. Enter, which lets potential buyers discover which fraud shops hold the cards they’re looking for without having to first create accounts at each store. According to its creator, the search engine does not store the compromised card numbers or any information about the card holders. I first read about this offering in a blog post by RSA Fraud Action Research Labs. “I’m standing on a big startup that is going to be [referred to as] the ‘underground Google,’” MegaSearch told KrebsOnSecurity.

Auto-generate Custom Bitmap Fonts for XNA | MickyD's Random Thoughts Home > Development > Auto-generate Custom Bitmap Fonts for XNA UPDATE: The tool mentioned here is made by the fine folks at NUBIK I recently spent many an hour trying to create a glow-effect for fonts in XNA using the XNA Bitmap Font Maker tool and Photoshop only to discover that it is yet another thing beyond my feeble artistic and technical ability. I thought I understood alpha-channels…what was a XNA noob to do? Enter the free, rather schmick[1] tool – SpriteFont 2 that generates bitmap font sheets with glow, drop shadow, outline effects and more. When dragging into your project you must set the Content Processor to Spite Font Texture – XNA Framework. Apparently, .spritefont files get compiled to an image anyway so whether you decide to use them or pre-generated font bitmaps, the result is the same by the time you load the font in your XNA program via: _spriteFont = Content.Load<SpriteFont>("Fonts/my spiffy font"); Like this: Like Loading...
