  • Hack The Gibson – Episode #66

    Read the reason for these posts. Read Steve Gibson’s response. This again will be a short one. Steve talks about Vista which I have no immediate experience with (I’ve seen it on some decent machines and all that I can say is that it’s reeeeeeeeeeeeally slow. really, really, really slow. Event without the Aero interface). […]

  • Hack the Gibson – episodes 63, 64 and 65

    Read the reason for these posts. Read Steve Gibson’s response. Hello all. I have little time lately to blog. Also the latest episodes of Security Now seem to contain less and less errors, allowing me to do one post for three episodes.

  • Hack the Gibson – Episode #61

    Read the reason for these posts. Read Steve Gibson’s response. And here it an other episode which starts out great and is at average better than the previous episodes, but still some mistakes slip in.

    Read the reason for these posts. Read Steve Gibson’s response. Here I am again, with a little delay because I was away on a conference of economics over the weekend, but I’ll cover that in a later post. This netcast started out very nicely, and I was hoping that I won’t have to write this […]

    Read the reason for these posts. Read Steve Gibson’s response. This is the 21st post. Woohoo!

  • Hack the Gibson – Episode #56

    Read the reason for these posts. Read Steve Gibson’s response. Here I am again, as promised. I won’t turn soft because of a nice e-mail. (Then again I hope that these posts are of technical nature, they point out objective mistakes and don’t become a personal attack. If you think that I’m sliding in that […]

  • Steve Gibson responds!

    Steve Gibson responded to my blog postings. It’s a very nice response and I must say that maybe I’ve misjudged him. This doesn’t mean that I’m getting soft, but every side should get a chance to display his opinions. Here is the letter I’ve received (republished with the permission of the sender): I’m sorry that […]

  • Hack the Gibson – for Episode #50

    Read the reason for these posts. The issue of different ports: as you can read on Wikipedia, there are three categories of ports: Common ports: from 0 to 1023 (not 1024, but the first 1024! – we computer guys are sometimes a little weird with our numbers) – these are special in the sense for […]
