No such Weblog.

This web log does, of course, not exist.

Scan of the Month: May 2001.

The Honeynet Project has an easy forensic challenge as May's Scan of the Month: Identify and recover a deleted rootkit from a compromised Linux system. Nice exercise for starters!

Why data protection is necessary.
