# [http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg20327255.900-how-to-shortcircuit-the-us-power-grid.html Got batteries?] - [Mick] - Looks like it's official, the US DHS finally gets "proof" that the US power grid is hackable. (Psst! if you put it behind the firewall, *everything* will be safe!!)
# [http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2009/09/anonymous-hacks-australia/ Anonymous not just against Xenu anymore! ] - [Mick] - The folks who are famous for [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSGWkcFEL44 crashing Mubix's party] are up to it again. This time, they are getting the party started with the entire country of Australia!
# [http://unu1234567.baywords.com/2009/09/10/rbs-wordpay-hacked-full-database-acces/ Holy SQL Injection Batman!] - [PaulDotCom] - Scary SQLi in RBS web site leading to a whole bunch of sensitive information to be leaked.
# [http://i8jesus.com/?p=75 Cross-protocol XSS with non-standard service ports] - [PaulDotCom] - Some interesting research going on here...

# [http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/PenTestIT/~3/qk9KLo-1ZRk/ Another Pen Test Live CD Distro] - [PaulDotCom] - This is getting out of control now :) However, the list of tools they added above and beyond backtrack is really neat. BUT, how good are the tools and do they do what you need them to? I truly believe we all need to carve out some time each week to play around with security tools, and Live CD is great for this. Once you find the ones that you like, and actually work, build them into your own system, not a Live CD.
