'Month of PHP Security' Finds 60 Bugs

felix9x Redhat 5 a problem which php 5.1 only? (120 comments)

I find it very confusing that Redhat server version 5 only provides 5.1.x php as a standard installation.

This is not even an still a supported branch of php by the php community so I assume none of these fixes that will be coming out in the next php 5.2.x or 5.3.x version may make it into RedHat 5 server. Considering that none of these holes are considered critical is more reason for RedHat to not bother with backporting.

Anyone find it a problem that Redhat installs in corporate environments do not provide a php version that is under active development?

Schneier, Journalist Poke Holes In TSA Policies

felix9x In other security programs that waste public money (296 comments)

Here in NYC if you go to a subway you will sometimes see police officers near the entrance with a little desk in front of them. They are supposed to randomly pick out people to check their bags. This is supposed to do what deter a real terrorist?

What if a real terrorist walks into a subway upon seeing the cops just simply does a 180 and walks about a block to the other entrance to the same station. Somehow I think I rather have the officers be involved in their usual crime stopping work, at least at that way they sometimes succeed.
