Tsk-tsk -- they allowed 22 out of their Internet firewall? Dangerous practice. Deep packet inspection also defeats the ssh-tunnel route.

Ask They Might Be Giants About Almost 30 Years of Music

don_carnage Stories? (188 comments)

I've always loved your music because it tells a well thought out, interesting, and quirky story. Where do you draw inspiration from? Is there a massive underlying theme controlling everything? A hand inside the puppet-head?

Lessons Learned From Skype’s Outage

don_carnage Re:lesson (hopefully) learned... (278 comments)

Deep packet is the only way to block Skype (or so I've heard.) The real danger lies not in the voice/videoconferencing but in the potential for tunneling and/or circumvention of data loss prevention controls.

Attack of the Trojan Printers

don_carnage Re:Why make it complicated? (144 comments)

Periodically scanning for rouge WIFI access points on your company's campus would prevent this sort of thing from happening. Now, imagine if instead of dumping a WIFI access point, they dumped a 3G aircard? 802.1x is the best defense against unauthorized network access.

DIY Projects, Communities and Cultures

don_carnage Make Magazine? (53 comments)

There are plenty of excellent DIY sites out there. I have a couple of projects featured on Instructables -- their interface makes is really easy to share your projects step-by-step.

Strange that Make Magazine is missing. Or Hack-A-Day.

Nintendo Entertainment System Turns 25

don_carnage Re:The mark of good games... (164 comments)

I have to agree that Spyro was probably the best game series made for the PS1. The colors and textures pretty much blew everything else out of the water.

New Email Worm Squirming Through Windows Users' Inboxes

don_carnage Re:Dealing with this mess... (473 comments)

The main point of physically visiting each machine was to leave a note stating, "Do not turn on this machine until further notice." It's all fine and dandy that you shut them down remotely, but how do you prevent the user from coming in the next day and turning the machine back on?

New Email Worm Squirming Through Windows Users' Inboxes

don_carnage Re:Lulz @work today (473 comments)

We thought the same thing, but when I actually looked at the link it turned out to be an .SCR. We're still not sure how it got on our network.

New Email Worm Squirming Through Windows Users' Inboxes

don_carnage Dealing with this mess... (473 comments)

We had to deal with this mess today, running around to PCs and flat-out shutting them off. One user that I came across clicked on the link because he "verified that it was from someone in the office." His Outlook outbox had over 34,000 emails ready to send. Quite a mess and we're still cleaning it up. I thought we had learned our lesson with the "I Love You" virus. What's worse is that the spam filter, IPS, Windows firewall, antivirus, and web proxy all failed to stop the attack.
