      Will be starting to push my CV out at InfoSec as i’m starting job hunting ready for later in the year when my current contract finishes!

      Also want to talk to a couple of companies about the work they are doing to glean more than they’ve currently published in their white papers as I know they won’t just have their sales staff on the stands.

      Am doing BSides London again this year. I applied within 15 mins of 1st batch of tickets going live and managed to get one, just!

      Also doing InfoSec the day before and probably hitting 44Cafe for lunch as I think a few of the usual suspects will be there. May even be able to stay for DC4420 on the Tue evening

      I know a guy called Thomas Roth used the Amazon Cloud to crack wpa-psk network initially in under 20 mins but he refined that down to about 6 mins.

      Amazon got the hump with him a little and were quoted at the time as saying

      using the cloud service to create a tool to show how security can be increased is okay. But don’t use it to actually crack passwords:

      Would probably want to speak with them first before hiring their hardware

      You need to speak with some radio hams or find yourself a good electronics shop.

      It may be worth looking at http://www.maplin.co.uk/ otherwise google is your friend

      Have got some old course notes (about 3 years out of date) lurking round somewhere on my storage that may be of some use to you.
      If I can find them i’ll upload them onto my online storage as soon as my home broadband gets connected and i’ll pm you the link.

      Too many of the companies out there seem to be playing loose with security and our data.  Ok, the software they are using in most cases is flawed but there’s no reason not to have a robust patching and security policy in place to minimize the risks.

      I give regular briefs to the users in the company I work for (as an information manager) stressing about the need for data protection, good password policy and the rest of the good stuff that they should do.  I’ve had a user come up to me after one brief and ask if it was possible to bypass/remove the encryption on his works laptop as it made it ‘run slower’!!

      All the high profile hacks going on at the moment and things like the bigger fines that the Information Commissioner is slapping on data protection breaches in the UK is giving me good ammo when I go out and preach to the unwashed masses

      Don’t know if it’s still out there or not as it’s a few years since I last used it in anger but look up coppermine – http://coppermine-gallery.net/

      It’s a php based photo gallery with a fairly active development team.  Check out their site as there are a number of boltons to it that may do what you need. If there’s not anything there and you can’t modify the existing code yourself to do what you want then get onto their forums

      The problem you may have is the fact your pages are php and you’re doing your progress bar in VB.  You may want to look at doing one in php or java. 

      Last time I looked at the php site (over 18 months ago now) they had a few small project and tutorials buried in the site and i’m sure one included a progress bar.

      Google is your friend in this matter as there will be plenty of code already written and published out there.  I advise you go through it line by line and check exactly what it does if you don’t get it off a ‘main’ site though.

      I get the feeling that Jay Abbot will be having his first proper nights sleep for weeks tonight.  He was certanly looking a bit haggard the other morning when I saw him.

      Sil, your mind is like a perpetual motion machine set to produce cyberstuff.  How do you do it??

      I’ve got the ISO’s sat here screaming at me to install them and i’ve not had the chance yet as it’s been so manic round here this last few weeks!

      Really need to look at getting the installs done this week.

      I wish you the best of luck the Triban.  Explaining things to management that don’t have a clue what i’m talking about is why I have so many grey hairs!

      Thats the problem, 3rd party software.  A system needs it to be any use to us but you’re at the mercies of a 3rd party outside the control of the OS designers.

      As the companies build the stuff to work on any platform, it’s going to give the hackers more ways to try get in 🙁

      The’ve got a nice dynamic site planned with online registration and they thought it would be too much of a target.  Considering some of the fines being handed out over here due to data protection breaches….!

      The UK Cyber Security Challenge website is behind schedule this year due to the fact that the designers built a nice looking site that was ‘about as secure as a wet paper bag’ and thats a direct quote from one of the challenge organisers.

      They now have two ‘security’ teams working on the site, one trying to secure it and one trying to break it!
