8/26    Poll: how many of you pub/priv key users: 1) use private keys that
        are not password protected 2) password protect your private keys
        but don't use ssh-agent 3) use ssh-agent:
        1) .
        2) ..
        3) ...
        \_ I also use empty passphrased private keys, but place them
           on an encrypted partition and symlink to them.  Useful for
           scripted stuff, like automatic uploading of security camera
           \_ Good idea, thanks.
        \_ It's worth noting that OS X 10.7+ (10.6+?) automatically uses

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. "

7/13    Why would Yahoo store passwords unencrypted?  I recall that even 20+
        years ago the passwords stored in /etc/passwd on instructional
        machines here at Cal were one-way encrypted.  (I think those were
        Ultrix machines.)
        \_ Doesn't this say anything already?

7/18    "Largest penis record holder arouses security suspicions at airport" (
        \_ I often have that same problem.
        \_ I think the headline writer had some fun with that one.
           \_ One time when I glanced over a Yahoo News headline "U.S. busts
              largest-ever identity theft ring" all I saw was "U.S. busts

4/19    My Firefox 3.6.28 pops up a Software Update box that reads "Your
        version of Firefox will soon be vulnerable to online attacks."  Are
        they planning to turn off some security feature in my version of
        \_ Not as such, no, but they're no longer developing this version,
           so if a 3.6.x-targeted hack shows up, you're not going to get

        \_ How is this different from the hundreds of other M$ security
           vulnerabilities that people have been finding?
