Security Circus

By far the most entertaining story from last week was Linux giving a few choice quotes[1].

He does get some things right, but there's still the very real fact that security flaws let people do things they shouldn't be able to do. This adds a certain amount of danger and does require more attention than some other flaws. A nice comparison is automotive recalls. If there are two problems, one is a broken cup holder, the second makes the car explode, which do you think they'll do a recall for?

Steve Grubb has a nice interview up on[1].

It offers some hints into some of the intresting things that have happened and can be expected in the SELinux space.
