Thousands of websites have been rigged to deliver a powerful piece of malicious software that many security products may be unprepared to handle.
An earlier version of Mebroot, which is what Symantec named it, first appeared around December 2007 and used a well-known technique to stay hidden. It infects a computer's Master Boot Record (MBR). It's the first code a computer looks for when booting the operating system after the BIOS runs.

NOW HEAR THIS! SecurityExpressions functionality is now in the Notification server. The release of the Audit Integration Component allows your organization to leverage SecurityExpressions auditing for compliance and configuration drift through your NS. You can download the Audit Integration in the Solution center in the NS. This solution will also install Task Server for you (which is free) and will give you pre-canned tasks for auditing. Very cool.

Did you know that there are tons of out-of-the-box SecurityExpressions policies? They cover all flavors of operating systems and applications leveraging best practices. I have uploaded the new guide that contains a comprehensive list of all the policies we have to date.

Did you know you could audit your system for compliance on the Web? WebAudit allows you to audit your own system against a best practices policy and then view the resulting system assessment.

Try this: http://www.pedestalsoftware.com/products/se/downlo...

The engine behind this is the SecurityExpressions Audit & Compliance server.

Cool!

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...
