I have a boat for sale. The sea is still one of my big passions, but I simply have too little time to use it. So I decided to let it go. I will buy a bigger one later, when and if I have more time.

It's still winter in Finland and all the small boats are on dry land covered by snow. But spring is approaching and the boating fever is spreading. It's the right time to publish an ad on the net.

The 28th Chaos Communication Congress (28C3) is currently underway in Berlin and on Tuesday, researcher Karsten Nohl gave a presentation called: Defending mobile phones. If you have an hour, it's worth watching.

Initial press reports focused on Nohl's revelation that hackers can potentially sniff numerous phone IDs and network authentications from an advantageous point, and because network authentications aren't frequently refreshed (depending on the network operator), an attacker could make expensive premium rate calls and bill them to other persons. GSM network specifications allow for every network action to be re-authenticated, but that requires serious investment in authentication servers. So operators may only do it every third call. Or tenth. Or perhaps only when the phone connects to the network.

Paul Mutton of Netcraft reports that 4Chan first went down on Sunday, posting an update to its Blogger-hosted status page.

"Site down due to a large DDoS attack," read the notice. "We hope to have it back up soon." On Tuesday, the board's operators identified the attack as a UDP packet flood on Port 80, in a notice that was later amended to identify the attack as a TCP SYN flood. According to Mutton, 4Chan was used to recruit volunteers (to a kind of voluntary botnet) when the group Anonymous first began using DDoS attacks as a punitive tool against companies that withdrew services from the whistle-blowing site WikiLeaks in the wake of its release of a series of secret US diplomatic cables in late 2010 - a list that includes Visa, MasterCard, PayPal and others.

The Web Host Industry Review

StopTheHacker predicts that about 75 percent of hosted websites are vulnerable, and 2.5 to 5 percent of hosts are infected with malware, statistics that StopTheHacker hopes to change with its website malware scanning service.

Through the support of Parallels, the company has re-launched with a focus on reselling through web hosts, promising high margins and conversion rates, and a solution that most hosting customers do not have, but certainly need as hackers become more sophisticated at injecting malicious code on websites. It received a $1.1 million round of funding earlier this week from venture capital firm Runa Capital.

Today is Data Privacy Day, a global "holiday" aimed at raising awareness about online security and privacy.

However, it's hard not to be aware of the constant threats that hammer on our digital doors. The joy of the Internet is that we're all connected to each other, making it easy to share information and commerce. But there's also a dark side: Just as in the "real" world, the Net is full of evildoers who want to take advantage of the less-than-vigilant among us. Don't be one of them. On Data Privacy Day, take some time to secure your virtual borders. Here are five things you can do right now that will give you peace of mind and make it little harder for the jerks who want to steal your data, your identity and your cash.

When it comes to my online activity, security is something I have always been fairly conscious of. But in my opinion, making sure that your WordPress site is secure is not something that you can ever do too much of.

That fact was recently driven home to me when Limit Login Attempts started reporting multiple login attempts from more than one IP address. I also discovered that someone had attempted to login to my Facebook account. With those recent events still fresh in my mind, I thought I'd take the opportunity to focus on some security threats concerning your WordPress site that you may not even be aware of. Whilst there are plenty of basic steps you can take to improve the security of your site (such as changing the default "admin" username and setting strong passwords), you may want to check these ones out too.
