A couple of items of interest from The Register:
OpenDNS rolls out Conficker tracking, blocking
This seems like a great idea, especially for small organisations without IDS or traffic monitoring. The problem.. well, OpenDNS has been awfully slow recently and personally I had to stop using it.
Kaspersky breach exposes sensitive database, hacker claims
This looks like a case of an insecure SQL database, leading to a potentially nasty compromise. Kaspersky isn't the first AV vendor to be shown to have poor SQL security. Trend was hit last year, as was CA. In this case, it looks like a potential data breach which is embarrassing. There's no evidence that any Kaspersky product has been compromised, but you can see that it might be possible to leverage credentials exposed in the SQL injection attack and use them elsewhere.
