Stumble and Flub

Things just didn't work the way they should have, this week. Here's my list:

  • turns out you can go around XP security by using a Win2K disk and forcing the Recovery Console. You even get extra abilities that Administrator wouldn't normally have in the Console.

  • SpamAssassing flags this month's
    as spam.

  • The country with the highest average bandwidth "into the home" is suing Microsoft for the damage done by the Slammer worm.

  • Do we really need a Linux Virus HowTo?

  • Commercial blogging, anyone?

  • ... and finally something really scary: Seems that Microsoft is suing "hackers unknown"" for supposedly breaking into Hotmail and harvesting e-mail addresses. I wonder what's going to happen to the next identifiable spammer that heavily targets HotMail.
