I haven't blogged for about 4 weeks and I wanted to fill you in on what I've been up to. I left Check Point at the end of Feb, having completed my part in the transition of NFR. I expect great things for Check Point as they further integrate the NFR technology. What followed for me was a two week vacation to Singapore/Malaysia to visit family - no phone, mostly no email and definitely no blogging. After getting back, I was floored with a flu bug that I must have caught yonder so it's taken me quite a bit longer to get back into the swing of things. I promise - I'll be back to posting on a more regular schedule shortly.

In the meantime, I've enjoyed reading ebizQ's other security blog, Peter Schoff's excellent Twenty Four Seven Security. In particular, his post based on the wireless security entitled Seven Steps to Safer WiFi is a great one!

Now, Paul Graham's company Errata Security plans on releasing a new open source sniffer called Ferret that will sniff on traffic across 25 protocols. According to Graham, the tool can help discover the kind of info we expose when we sign onto and use a wireless network

"You don't realize how much you're making public, so I wrote a tool that tells you," said Robert Graham, Errata's chief executive.
