The Need for Vulnerability Management


New network vulnerabilities appear every day due to flaws in software, faulty configuration, and human error. Detecting, removing, and controlling vulnerabilities requires vulnerability management (VM)—the continuous use of software tools to purge exploitable risks. Find out how making VM a part of your network security strategy can help you counter sophisticated exploits and document compliance with security standards.

Another Type Of Virus Hits The World (And Gets Microsoft No Less)


A number of anti-virus vendors, including Trend Micro and Computer Associates, have warned of a virus with a new approach. It is known variously as QAZ.TROJAN or QAZ.WORM, and was officially renamed to W32.HLLW.Qaz.A in September. The virus enters via unprotected shared drives and usually replaces the Notepad.Exe application, although there have been occasions where Notepad was not the victim. The virus then provides a backdoor to outside intruders, giving them in effect remote control over the computer that has been infected. This analysis contains some suggestions to protect your machines.
