Errata Pages Updated
Sun Nov 18 04:04:30 MST 2001
Just did a straight 8+ hours of working on the Errata pages here.
I can't feel my left arm (damn cat slept on that arm half the night)
or either hand.
A few highlights:
- all main errata pages now using the attrition CSS so
they match. at least one page (stats) is still fugly
because of the PRE tags, but it needs a complete
redo either way. this is on my todo list.
security companies that warrant
attention. moved relevant stuff off charlatans to this page.
added a ton of entries, sorted the time line so new
material is on top. included all types of events
(spamming, errata, defacements, etc). as
once said.. "Time to go get that KingCobra out
of my fridge - my industry is embarrassing me again."
non security companies that had
security incidents. a sort of warning for people that
use these services/companies. mostly preserving this
to help combat denial down the road since companies
like to do that kind of thing. also a nice track
record for common mistakes these large companies
are making. while this is a good foundation, i know
there are hundreds of events i am missing here.
finding them is on my todo list.
many new entries on here
- using a new naming scheme for all files, to help
stay organized, make them easier to reference, etc.
hopefully this will help tag entries in search engines
as well. i need to work on renaming more of the legacy
file names to the new scheme.
- using standard HTML tags as much as I can. very
little use of PRE tags these days. converted a
lot of other PRE based entries to regular html.
the big exception is when quoting news articles.
rather not spend hours converting them to html
when PRE works fine.
- got my incoming errata mail folder from 540 to
410 range. still a lot of work to be done =)
As always, if you see errors/typos please let me know. Better, if you know
of incidents I am missing send me a URL or whatnot. I will put it in the
incoming folder and try to weed through it ASAP.
