iLivid: Yet more very misleading badness
Still not getting responses from them and still coming across yet more highly misleading crap from them - the latest of which is this one, auto-loaded in popup via one of the ad networks (was just while general research on something else this time, didn't catch which ad network it came through unfortunately); hxxp://lp.sharelive.net/?sysid=406=420=2949=0020047485637829949

Avoiding Security Policy Accumulation - http://blog.fortinet.com/Avoidin...
These days, IT complexity is a way of life - and something that most have come to accept as normal.

These devices are continuously exchanging information from numerous locations while using application data across hybrid cloud infrastructures. As a result, organizations are in the process of perfecting a precarious balancing act that bot...

Hack.lu Capture The Flag (CTF) - RoboAuth - http://blog.fortinet.com/Hack-lu...
This year, I was happy to speak at Hack.lu on hiding and revealing code inside DEX executables (slides and paper to be posted soon). The conference also traditionally hosts a CTF to which I participated in this year with two other friends. Several write-ups are already available for that CTF at https://pads.ccc.de/tZxDNFlp19. I’ll add to the list a write-up for the RoboAuth challenge. Actually, the text of the challenge does not say anything interesting apart that we are to download t...

It seems to be the day for email issues. Both incoming and outgoing. The issue with the incoming email is being worked on by Domain Monster (it's a known issue with their mail server), and should be resolved within 24 hours, but obviously means, I can't receive emails at present. The outgoing mail issue should be resolved within the next few hours (hopefully).
