Going From Black Hat To White Hat SEO Doesn’t Mean Google Will Like You. Matt Cutts himself shared results this week from a survey he conducted, finding only twenty percent of people in the U.S. have ever heard of SEO.
Much of the chatter in the SEO community over the past month has been on Google’s efforts to level the playing field for ma & pa vs professionally operated sites, comments to this effect by Google’s Matt Cutts at SXSW have indicated that Google is working on things that would make it so people who over-optmize their sites don’t necessarily rank better than others who haven’t put a thought into SEO.

This weeks Black Hat and Defcon convention in Las Vegas is generating a lot of buzz in the build up, what are the odds of the FBI turning up and getting hacked for their efforts. This may or may not be connected with LulSec and Anonymous being extra busy this week , making the headlines for many reasons but we at highpants are starting to think they’re in the headlines because that’s the way they like it. We’re just a little chuffed at our scoop on Anonymous, first to publish the Anonymous brag isn’t a shabby thing! With a headline like F_ck FB! Friday though, who could resist.
Clicking fingers at the ready.….
- South Korean mobile phone giant SK Communications has been hacked exposing the details of up to 35 million customers
- Hackers have found a way to unlock BMW, Hyundai and GM cars via SMS, the weaknesses is in the remote control and telemetry systems
- WASP (Wireless Aerial Surveillance Platform) a hacker with wings, this bad boy can sniff out your wi-fi, crack passwords and pose as a cell phone tower to listen in on calls. The unforseen back-lash against yellow remote control planes could be HUGE
- Here are five good reasons hacking will never be stopped
- Lulsec and Anonymous have been making headlines for themselves again this week, have the three stooges of the hacking world gone too far this time. All good hackers know if you lift your chin up too high it will be taken of at the neck.

- PayPal hands 1000 IP address of suspected Anonymous accounts to the FBI, FBI asks PayPal to repeat everything after ‘listen closely max’
Buddha’s Brother out…

“You have this ideal vision of doing something for the greater good,” said David Litchfield, managing director of Next Generation Security Software Ltd. of London, who acknowledged that a small bit of his code might have been used in the attack. “I will probably no longer publish such code.” David Litchfield via The Washington Post
David Litchfield has devoted the last nine years to making the Oracle chief executive regret that marketing stunt. At the Black Hat security conference Tuesday afternoon, Litchfield unveiled a new bug in Oracle’s 11G database software, a critical, unpatched vulnerability that would allow a hacker to take control of an Oracle database and access or modify information at any security level.
“Anything that God can do on that database, you can do” Litchfield
The problem lies in the PLSQL Gateway, a component of the Oracle Internet Application Server, the Oracle Application Server and the Oracle HTTP Server, he said in an e-mail to the BugTraq mailing list :: Read the full article »»»»
