This video shows how uneven bars in gymnastics evolved through the years, starting in the 50s. The girls now seem about a third of the size, move at 5x speed and their moves look straight out of a video game.

Came across this today. Looks like a nifty little configuration management tool. Certainly far more basic than Puppet or Chef, but might be a decent way to get started with configuration management if you’re not there yet.

Targeted Intrusion Remediation

Interesting blog post about remediation and response to persistent & targeted attacks. White paper and slides are linked from the post. I am not sure where I stand on this. I understand the logic and the need for effective remediation and determining scope of the incident. However, given the assumptions in the paper: “organization inexperienced in dealing with targeted intrusions” and “security team has poor visibility into host and network activities”, I have serious doubts that this type of a team will be able to execute¬† the process effectively. At a minimum, some form of containment should be higher on the priority list.
