Microsoft today issued security updates to fix at least two vulnerabilities in its software. The fixes are for enterprise components that are not widely installed, meaning that Windows home users will likely get away with not having to patch their operating system this month.
I recently began publishing a series of advice columns for people who are interested in learning more about security as a craft or profession. For the third installment in this series, I interviewed Jeremiah Grossman, chief technology officer of WhiteHat Security, a Web application security firm.
A frequent speaker on a broad range of security topics, Grossman stressed the importance of coding, networking, and getting your hands dirty (in a clean way, of course).
