May Security Catch-up

Its been much too long since my last post - Sony's PSN network has been breached a few times, a record number of vulnerabilities have been published, and the US government has released a new set of cyber space strategies.

On the cool tools and technologies there have been lots of notable releases:

Some research from Albert Cotesi New Zealand on the traffic flowing from IOS to 3rd parties, now sniffable thanks to MITMProxy, and instructions on getting it working with IOSAs always SQLmap is making life easier for the vulnerability assessor and pen-tester.Microsoft has released an updated to the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit - I'll be looking into this over the next few weeks, and how it can be applied practically.New major version of Backtrack also released, for those of you that are still relying upon live-cd's as a source for tools.
