If I'm going to start a new blog on a new community, it will need to be about something different. So I'm going to concentrate my blog here to be focused on Security Exploits in the movies. Now, movies like Hackers or The Net which always shows some ridiculous 3D animated eye-candy UI which is what hackers are using. News to Hollywood: when I open my mail, it does not always animate a paper letter opening up and then showing me the email. If it did that, I think I would have wasted about 2 years of my life watching envelops open up.

Since this is the first blog entry, I'll have to start with the best example where Hollywood obviously hired a security expert to do the senses. Trinity in The Matrix Reloaded . pulls out Nmap version 2.54BETA25, (nice choice) and uses it to find a vulnerable SSH server, and then properly exploits the hell out of it using the SSH1 CRC32 exploit from 2001. (Ok, so there are some timing issues with this, or they don't have their YUM...

At first glance, you might consider "another day at the office..." as a negative connotation about work.  Similar to saying,  "it's almost the middle of the week," or, "can't wait until it's Friday!"

Contrary to those popular sayings, "another day at the office" means something entirely different here at Symantec.  I wanted to start this weekly blog to let you know some of the things we're doing at Symantec to stay focused on you as the customer.  To give you an insight into this company, and what makes it tick.  Every day presents a new challenge, a new opportunity for us to succeed in helping you, our customers.

What you probably know is that we are a big company with offices and organizations spread throughout the world.  But, what you may not realize is the sense of an open door policy where people want to genuinely do "good" on behalf of...

Did you know that in SecurityExpressions there is a rule that scans for all known Microsoft vulnerabilities? Needless to say, functionality like this can help make your network more robust (and your job more secure).

The tool can be placed as a rule in the self-audit section of the SecurityExpressions server.

After creating the rule, you can go to the self-audit Web page on the server.

The tool has a pre-configured rule that automatically checks for all last known vulnerabilities.

After going to the self-audit page, there is an active X component is downloaded to your machine, and the tool does its checking.

The check creates a list of vulnerabilities on the PC in question. You can click the failures it lists and see solutions to your specific vulnerability problems.

SecurityExpressions is a good stable...
