=== .ORG DNSSEC ===

=== Phrack 66 ===
This week .ORG became the first TLD to sign their zone with DNSSEC

Phrack 66<ref>http://www.phrack.com/issues.html?issue=66</ref> came out this week. If you're not aware, Phrack is the longest running hacker zine, it's impressive that after more than 20 years, it's still going.

This is sort of a big deal, as most everyone agrees DNSSEC<ref>http://www.dnssec.net/</ref> will happen in the future, but nobody has really taken any steps to make it happen. It falls in the same bucket as IPv6. It will happen, it will be nice when it does, but it's going very very slowly.

=== Firefox 3.0.11 ===
 
+
Yet another security update for Firefox was released, be sure to update, it's important.
Many organizations will be watching how this goes for .ORG, if it goes well, it's quite likely DNSSEC will see rapid deployment, but if it goes bad, it may slow things even more than they currently are.
