I found this very interesting- and unsettling- reading.
Finally: here is a link of general Best Practices from Security Response: please do make sure that your organization is using SEP to its full capabilities, and that other necesasary steps to remain secure are being covered. As this paper shows, there's a lot of bad stuff in circulation.
