Wishing You a Happy, Safe Holiday

And no grinches in your stockings

In celebration of the holidays, Dark Reading and its parent company, CMP Technology, will be closed on Dec. 24 and Dec. 25, and will not be posting any new content.

Wherever you are, and whatever holiday you're celebrating this season, we hope you'll stay safe and secure over this next couple of days. We look forward to serving up the latest in IT security news to you when we return to the office on Dec. 26.

Just one bit of advice -- a good, solid concrete chimney guard will protect your perimeter from that pesky fireplace vulnerability. A roaring fire may also help, researchers say.

I wonder if that red-suited hacker could get in through Port 80?
