Security News Burp

Couple interesting things I found while trolling around tonight.

Microsoft has a project called the Strider Honeymonkey Exploit Detection System that attempts to automatically detect malicious websites that are attempting to distribute malware. According to this SecurityFocus article

Microsoft ‘s experimental Honeymonkey project has found almost 750 Web pages that attempt to load malicious code onto visitors’ computers and detected an attack using a vulnerability that had not been publicly disclosed, the software giant said in a paper released this month.

Way to go, Microsoft!

In tools news, aircrack 2.2 (one of my favorite Windows wireless tools) was recently released.

That’s it for now, time to go back to researching repositories.
