Review: Googling Security: How Much Does Google Know About You
--------------------------------------------------------------
If I ask "How much do you know about Google?" You may not take even a
second to respond.  But if I may ask "How much does Google know about
you"? You may instantly reply "Wait... what!? Do they!?"  The book
"Googling Security: How Much Does Google Know About You" by Greg Conti
(Computer Science Professor at West Point) is the first book to reveal
how Google's vast information stockpiles could be used against you or
your business and what you can do to protect yourself.

A Secure Nagios Server
----------------------
Nagios is a monitoring software designed to let you know about problems
on your hosts and networks quickly. You can configure it to be used on
any network. Setting up a Nagios server on any Linux distribution is a
very quick process however to make it a secure setup it takes some
work. This article will not show you how to install Nagios since there
are tons of them out there but it will show you in detail ways to
improve your Nagios security.

  -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  A vulnerability has been found and corrected in pulseaudio: Tavis
  Ormandy and Julien Tinnes of the Google Security Team discovered that
  pulseaudio, when installed setuid root, does not drop privileges
  before re-executing itself to achieve immediate bindings. This can be
  exploited by a user who has write access to any directory on the file
  system containing /usr/bin to gain local root access. The user needs
  to exploit a race condition related to creating a hard link
