When emails from Ken Belva appear in my inbox, I get a slight charge of excitement. He's another one of my security heroes, (I refuse to use the word 'guru'), someone I've quietly respected over the years and has had no small part in influencing me to get where I am.

So when that mail is asking me to help him, I ask not why I should jump, but how high. I encourage everyone to take a look at Ken's new site. I just hope it doesn't stop people coming by here having so much information in one place, from so many incredible security minds...

Sadly I work for a vendor, so I won't be able to post anything for the moment, but you can bet your bottom dollar I'll be reading. Cheers Ken, and best of luck. I don't think you'll need it.
