2/21    I just got a PayPal spam mail asking me to confirm my PayPal account.
        It says to go here: which obviously is
        a fraud, but omg it looks 100% authentic and everything looks exactly
        like PayPal. I'm very impressed at scammers and their sophistications.
        \_ Yeah, it's downright eerie how people can use HTML to fake other
            \_ try logging in with a wrong password, then a right password.
               See what happens? It's not trivial. Make sure to change your
               password to something new after this experiment.
               \_ Yeah, it's downright eerie how people can use HTML and
                  basic perl to fake other sites.
        \_ Have some fun with it with a browser running in a vmware session,
           fake username/password, and some basic xss exploits.  Dump the
           whole session into ethereal, and if you're not concerned about
           engaging in wire fraud and other illegal stuff, for bonus points
           see what hilarious vulnerabilities you can find on their box and
           on others they run.  -John
           \_ Yeah.  I found a list of ATM numbers and PINs and CC numbers on
              one site.

8/29    There was once a CSUA web page which runs an SSH client for logging
        on to soda.  Does that page still exist?  Can someone remind me of the
        URL please?  Thx.
        \_ what do you mean? instruction on how to ssh into soda?
           \_ No I think he means the ssh applet, which, iirc, was an applet
              that implemented an ssh v1 client.  I think this page went away

8/6     Amazon and Apple have lame security policies:
        "First you call Amazon and tell them you are the account holder, and
         want to add a credit card number to the account. All you need is the
         name on the account, an associated e-mail address, and the billing
         address. "
