OK, a number of people have emailed me, sent me PM's, even someone sent me an SMS and a couple of blog comments have been posted. What is happening with the PL/SQL password cracker. Well I just have not had free time to sort it out. I need to simply add a header text to it, clear out all the debug code, ideally add the 11g code and of course post it up. I am going to have some free time Thursday so I will promise to post it up on my tools page on Thursday and also mention it here. Sorry to those that have been waiting and sorry to those who have been teased by seeing it running last week in Iceland.
I also gave a webinar talk today for Sentrigo on the subject of Oracle security of course. This was fun although it is still weard after now having done three webinars to speak and get absolutely no feedback. I will post the slides on my site on Thursday for those who have asked me about them.
I also saw a couple of posts last week around travel to the states and the new rules that allow the US customs to take laptops and other electronic items to review. This is very worrying as it is probably pot luck as to whether you fall victim to this. There is a story "Homeland Security: We can seize laptops for an indefinite period" about it and some tips on PC World in an article titled "Five Things to Know About U.S. Border Laptop Searches" and finally Toms experiences in the same area in a post titled "Crossing the border... ". This is a worry if you use a laptop for your business, what do you do?, stay out of the states, dont take a laptop, or email in your data and collect it there? - i guess if you need to go to the states you need to prepare for this.
Finally for this short post, i saw from browsing the UKOUG calendar for the conference in December that i have also had my Oracle Security Masterclass accepted. This is good news and should be a fun session. I have enjoyed the masterclasses particularly in the past as they allow a more in-depth look at the subject. I will talk more later in the year about the content of this masterclass, it will be worth coming along.
OK, enough for now, i have worked past midnight a few nights i the last week, i need a rest..:-)
