Do Your Passwords Pass Microsoft's Test?

There's a scene in the movie Spaceballs when King Roland, having given in to Dark Helmet's threats, tells him that the combination to his planet's "air shield" is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Exasperated, Dark Helmet responds, "That's the stupidest combination I've ever heard in my life! The kind of thing an idiot would have on his luggage!"

Security Research Isn't Pretty, But It's Necessary
Commentary  |  4/17/2006  | 
Security research is a dirty job, but somebody has to do it.

Bet you didn't know that software companies, like rock stars, have groupies. Rock star groupies know every word to every one of their favorite band's songs, and they know how to wrangle backstage passes that make them privy to the band's inner workings.

Do the people in charge of IT security really w
IT Security: Playing To Win
Commentary  |  4/11/2006  | 
Security company Fortify Software today released a Flash-based game called IT Defender that attempts to educate players about workplace security risks while they risk their jobs by playing a game at work. Sure, it's a PR ploy. But it's a good one. (Really, anything is better than another press release.) As a game, it's nothing groundbreaking, but it's nicely done for what it is.
