AusCERT Web Log



Welcome to the AusCERT web log, where AusCERT will informally discuss current activity and interesting developments in the area of information security, Internet security and computer network attacks.

This is a channel for the timely release of unstructured information which may not be suited to our standard bulletins or other publications. A trade off of providing timely information is that it may be unverified or contain inaccuracies. However, if the accuracy of information changes or new information comes to light about an issue, we will always endeavour to update our web log.

We welcome comments and corrections of any of the information contained in the blog. Please contact auscert@auscert.org.au to provide feedback.
