Three bags full
The title actually bears little relationship to the story... it merely reflects that I have little kids and have been reading too much Mother Goose.
There are three items I'd like to share though.
The first is this excellent article by Didier Stevens. See here
The nub of this matter is that Didier conducted an experiment where he registered adwords and waited to see how many clicks he'd get. The adwords were variations of "drive by download" and for $23 his ad was displayed 259,723 times over six months, and clicked on 409 times. It's a great article and well worth a read.
The second item I wanted to share was that the iframecash boyz have now started using .hk domains. It will be interesting to see how this pans out.
The third item is that, overall, things are pleasantly quiet in the web-based exploit world. We sincerely hope that it's not calm-before-storm stuff.
