Halloween InfoSec News

A few short items (again):

The Blue Box podcast service has a new recording which includes a rant about the lack of security provided by some VoIP Service Providers. This came out of a "Service Provider Shootout" provided by the Internet Telephony West conference earlier this in October.

SCADA security issues are covered in the scada security blog. Recent postings include how to detect ICCP servers with Nessus and a plug for the SCADA Security Scientific Symposium (January 24-25 in Miami)

And finally, what could be more "Halloween" than Zombies? ZDNet has an article titled "Zombies try to blend in with the crowd". Compromised zomby systems, instead of using easily recognizable (and easily blocked) communication protocols, are now using more familiar one like HTTP.
