Micro$oft does it good

Microsoft published a security bulletin affecting the MSN Messenger 6.2 and 7.0 beta. According to security firm Secunia, the vulnerability is caused due to an error within the processing of GIF images and can be exploited by sending a specially crafted emoticon or display picture to a user.

A successful exploit enables an attacker "to take complete control of an affected system," Microsoft acknowledged in its security bulletin MS05-022. This includes the installation of software; viewing, changing or deleting data as well as the creation of accounts with full user rights.

Mystery FBI raid against indymedia network

Writing about web page http://yro.slashdot.org/yro/04/10/07/204217.shtml?tid=153&tid=219

"US authorities issued a federal order to Rackspace's office in the US ordering them to provide Indymedia's hardware located in London to the requesting agency. Rackspace is one of Indymedia's web hosting providers with offices in the US and London. Rackspace complied, without first notifying Indymedia, and turned over Indymedia's server in the UK. This affects some 20+ Indymedia sites worldwide." – Argentina Indymedia

Gives me a new website to visit anyway: www.indymedia.org
