Random stuff from the mailbag
There wasn't anything big enough to comprise a full story today, but there are lots of small items to mention:

1) Criminal groups are starting to exploit the (still unpatched) IE vulnerability.  This could get ugly soon.

2) Update: Several people have reported that a patch is now available, so patch now!...  There is a very serious bug in most Panda antivirus products that seems to still be unpatched.  This was announced several days ago.  Possible mitigation is to block .zoo attachments at your network entry points (email and web browsing).  Of course, you might be in trouble if Panda *is* your mail filtering server.

3) One person reported that Google now allows Gmail functionality to run on  This change caused his web filtering software company to categorize as webmail.  And since his organization doesn't allow webmail access, users were blocked from google.  Did anybody else run into this problem?
