OFFER: Avocent DSR2161 12-port KVM switch

From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" 
------------------------------------------------------
I have an Avocent DSR2161 12-port KVM switch that has been laying out in my
carport for ages.

I don't need it, does anyone here want it?

I'm located near Fayetteville, so meeting up in Tullahoma or Winchester
would be necessary.

Let me know if interested.

Thanks!

The Sony Hack: The Problem Was The Users

From an article at cio.com
======================================
In November 2005, Jason Spaltro, executive director of information security at Sony Pictures Entertainment, sat down in a conference room with an auditor who had just completed a review of his security practices.

The auditor told Spaltro that Sony had several security weaknesses, including insufficiently strong access controls, which is a key Sarbanes-Oxley requirement.

Furthermore, the auditor told Spaltro, the passwords Sony employees were using did not meet best practice standards that called for combinations of random letters, numbers and symbols. Sony employees were using proper nouns. (Sox does not dictate how secure passwords need to be, but it does insist that public companies protect and monitor access to networks, which many auditors and consultants interpret as requiring complex password-naming conventions.)

Summing up, the auditor told Spaltro, “If you were a bank, you’d be out of business.”

Frustrated, Spaltro responded, “If a bank was a Hollywood studio, it would be out of business.”

Spaltro argued that if his people had to remember those nonintuitive passwords, they’d most likely write them down on sticky notes and post them on their monitors. And how secure would that be?

After some debate, the auditor agreed not to note “weak passwords” as a Sox failure.
