If you're in the greater Washington D.C. area, make sure you drop by to see these two speaking opportunities from VeriSign representatives.

I will be speaking on using security indicators to increase online sales at eTail East in Baltimore on August 4. If you're going to eTail, make sure you come up after the speech and say hello.

Fellow VeriSign blogger Bob Angus will be presenting how to sell premium services to cost-sensitive customers at HostinCon in Washington D.C. on August 11. I'll be at HostingCon as well, so once again, if you're an SSL Blog reader, stop by the VeriSign table.

We're seeing active discussion online about the possibility of hijacking a single frame in a production site to steal logins or PII. The scenario is that a criminal gang would redirect this frame (through DNS poisoning, let's say) and populate it with its own content from servers under its control. Presumably this content would involve form fields asking for information the criminals want to receive and which you would be willing to share in this context (such as your bank account login or social security number).

Now, the recent dialog is around the scenario where this proposed attack happens on a site with an Extended Validation SSL Certificate. The certificate identifies the controller of the top-level frame and does not report on the sources of any internal frames in that page.

Hi folks. Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I've been slammed.

Writing today because Firefox 3.5 has broken the download record for a new browser version with over 8 million downloads in a single day. One subject that has been the source online discussion is the fact that the EV certificates for a series of SSL brands (four that I know of) have stopped showing up green in Firefox 3.5.

You can be assured that this problem does not happen with the EV SSL Certificates from VeriSign, thawte, or GeoTrust.

Hey everybody,

We're disappearing to an obscure corner of the world for a couple of weeks, and I don't think I'll be blogging. I'll let you know when I'm back in contact.

Well, I didn't win the Best Corporate Security Blog at the Security Blogger Meetup. The winner in my category was Sunbelt Security's corporate blog. I want to personally thank all of you who voted for me. It is a great compliment that you, the readers, view this blog as worthy of such an award. And you're the people whose opinion matters the most.

Remember the Cart Whisperer, VeriSign's award-winning viral marketing campaign launched last year to educate businesses about the dangers of abandoned shopping carts and what they could do about them? The Cart Whisperer previously has been honored as one of Marketing Sherpa's top ten campaigns of 2008 and screened at the Cannes film festival. Now it has been honored by The Web Marketing Association with an Internet Advertising Competition Award for Outstanding Achievement in Internet Advertising.
