Back From London (May 9, 2014)
Generated four related stories:
Last month, DarkReading -- long a sister publication to InformationWeek --became part of InformationWeek, effectively now serving as its security section. For the past four years, I've served as the information security reporter for InformationWeek, and am now working with the top-notch staff of DarkReading. (PR peeps, please now adjust your DarkReading-wise pitches accordingly.)
Guardian Readers' Photos: Zigzag (Feb. 20, 2014)
Royal Photographic Society Distinction (Jan. 17, 2014)
Here's a link to my 10-image panel.
Campaign Against US Retailers Revealed (Jan. 13, 2014)
Reuters reports that at least three other retailers were similarly breached -- likely at the end of November 2013, and extending well into December -- but have yet to come clean. Until they do so, banks and processors can't out them, though given how news of the Target and Neiman Marcus breaches trickled out, I'd guess we'll hear more about the other suspects in the coming days, unless they take the initiative and come clean sooner.
Self-Sabotage Virus Promises Free Time (Dec. 3, 2013)
Has Your Android Been Pwned? (Dec. 2, 2013)
Results presented as a slideshow. (I whipped up the pictured image courtesy of Flickr user nolifebeforecoffee.)
I'm up against stories from Computerworld and strategy+business. Awards will be announced Dec. 5, 2013; fingers crossed.
Inkblots (October 18, 2013)
The three Carnegie Mellon researchers behind the proposal have dubbed their new system Gotchas -- for Generating panOptic Turing Tests to Tell Computers and Humans Apart -- which they said boils down to "a randomized puzzle generation protocol, which involves interaction between a computer and a human."
Finalist For 2013 min's Editorial & Design Awards (October 17, 2013)
I'm up against Cosmo, Ladies' Home Journal, O--The Oprah Magazine, People, and WSJ Magazine, amongst others.
Awards will be announced Nov. 18, 2013.
Healthcare.gov Security Questions: Radio Interview (October 15, 2013)
It's always fun to jump on the air to talk about computer security.
Hacker Entrapment (October 7, 2013)
That's the question raised by one of my latest stories for InformationWeek, which concerns the case of hacker Jeremy Hammond, who's pleaded guilty to charges of hacking private intelligence firm Stratfor. But Hammond claims his hacking was being monitored not only by LulzSec leader "Sabu" (aka Hector Xavier Monsegur) but also the FBI.
|Sporadic Update Alert (September 10, 2013)
It's been one of those years? Full court press between work, breaking news (and the nonstop NSA story), becoming president of my local photographic society (a.k.a. camera club) and travel. I've been at least keeping my links to recent work up to date, but on deck for "soon" is a completely updated photo gallery with more recent work.
Edinburgh Fringe Festival (August 20, 2013)
Summer of Snowden (July 23, 2013)
Downtime In Northumberland (March 1, 2013)
Overcast day, not excellent for photographs of the hunt in action, but the assembled hounds, who are kept by the society that manages the hunt, whining as they waited to get underway, made for excellent subjects.
|Information Security: Quick Hits (Feb. 26, 2013)
Recent information security fun: zombie uprising hoax, NBC website serve Java-seeking malware, rethinking China attacks and cyberwar.
Turn of the Year: In Denial? (Jan. 28, 2013)
