We received a report this morning (Thanks Rob) asking if we've heard about any other problems with Google's reputation server.  Apparently starting this morning at ~8:30 EST, Firefox started reporting a number of "clean" sites as attack sites.  

Since Firefox gets this reputation information from Google, Rob writes in asking if we've heard any other reports.

So let's hear from you.  Any other strange activity?

Today VMWare released a Security Advisory at this URL:

It's an update for VMware ESX 4.1 without patch ESX410-201011001.

Here's the problem description right off of their website:

 a. Service Console OS update for COS kernel package.

    This patch updates the Service Console kernel to fix a stack
    pointer underflow issue in the 32-bit compatibility layer.

    Exploitation of this issue could allow a local user to gain
    additional privileges.

    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (
    has assigned the name CVE-2010-3081 to this issue.

So if you are running this software in your enterprise, you'll want to take a look at this one.  Thanks to VMWare for this one.
