L33tdawg: According to the page, "Order numbers should have 8 numerical characters", however if you just put in '1' as an order number, it still works and feeds back an order as well! LOL.
Seems Gateway has a bit of a problem on there secure commerce site that allows you to look at other peoples orders. Luckily for Gateway the information shown does not show personal data or credit card info. I am betting once Gateway gets wind of these articles it will not be long before this particular "feature" will disappear.
Brazilian police arrested 18 Internet hackers on Wednesday in a massive effort to dismantle a gang operating across four northern states, authorities said. The operation, dubbed "Trojan Horse" and involving 205 officers, targeted a gang that stole more than $10 million last year by breaking into banks and clients' computers, federal police said in a statement. Police said the gang had created Internet sites and programs capable of uncovering the passwords of clients who transferred money on the Web.
KernelTrap has a very interesting article about a recent attempt to sneak a "back door" into the Linux 2.6 kernel. Evidently someone managed to break into the CVS server that mirrors the kernel source tree and add a small patch allowing one to locally obtain "root" super-user access. Fortunately, during an export from the master BitKeeper version of the kernel source tree into the CVS mirror, the change was detected and quickly removed.
In these media-fueled times, when war is a television spectacle and wiping out large numbers of civilians is generally frowned upon, the perfect weapon would literally stop an enemy in his tracks, yet harm neither hide nor hair. Such a weapon might shut down telecommunications networks, disrupt power supplies, and fry an adversary's countless computers and electronic gadgets, yet still leave buildings, bridges, and highways intact. It would strike with precision, in an instant, and leave behind no trace of where it came from.
No hard evidence shows that terrorists are planning a cyberattack on the U.S. But if such an attack occurs, it is likely to be much more harmful than the current crop of relatively unsophisticated viruses and worms that have caused billions of dollars in damages, a cybersecurity expert said Monday.
Terrorism groups have planned cyberterrorism attacks for years, and those attacks are waiting for a vulnerability to trigger them, predicted Norm Laudermilch, vice president of managed security services for VeriSign.
