Web site containing info on "famous" www security breaches???

Post by Steve McGowa » Wed, 19 Mar 1997 04:00:00



Hi,

I need to locate a web site(s) that details the "famous" www security
breaches. For example, The Internet Worm, Paul Bedworth, Cliff Stoll,
etc. I'd also like to find out more info on the recent hacks into the
CIA web server, and to the Labour Party web site here in Britain.

Does anyone know of such a web site that consolidates all this info?
I've searched the net, and visited cert, first, ciac, etc, but had no
luck.

Thanks in advance!

(email or post any replies, but prefer email)

        Most (except the last 2) of the things you list are not
www security problems: they are sendmail/finger/etc security problems.
The Internet is not axiomatically equal to the "WWW" -- indeed many
of the things you list happened before this "Web" thing was even
thought of.

1. Windows www Browsers reports "transmission interrupt" errors when run against Linux httpd web site.

Windows based Netscapes and Mosaic browers lockup with "transmission interrupt"
against my web page "sunsite httpd - contrib". Other Windows based Mosaic
clients have no problem at all. An HP-UX Mosaic clent has no problem. For
this page to be a sucess I must eliminats these pesky transmission interrupts.
  The interrupt will occur after some a the page has been printed. If
gif/jpgs are removed it works better but they still occur. I look into
the configruation and see no options that might explain this. If I remove
the HTML where it locksup at it may print a few more HTMLs and lock again.
Doesn't appear to be HTML coding.
  HELP!!!!

Thanks in advance!!
