Supposedly, the CISCO 500 Series PIX firewalls may have a flaw. The potential flaw is with the SIP protocol. By sending a certain packet to the PIX, hackers would be able to gain free reins to the UDP protocol to send any messages to the Internal network using UDP.

Click-Once Frustrations

Wow! I’m severely disappointed with click-once. I went to use it for a small app I released last week and I find it extremely disturbing that third-party dependencies aren’t included in the package as either a dependency or an installable DLL. Instead, you have to use the manifest tools to remove the DLL from the manifest and then add it again. Also, there is no way to specify file types. Finally, I’m disappointed in the amount of information sent to and from the web server during each load. I would have thought that a thinner client would be used to check versions, etc. I have since decided to use a traditional Windows installation package.

New Advertising System

Yesterday I switched advertising systems from Google AdSense to Lake Quincy Media. What a difference! The quality of advertisements is 10 times greater than what I had before. Google’s AdSense system was intelligent, but failed miserably on my site. 90% of the ads were related to blog or photo sites because blog and photo are in my menu. I now have advertisements specific to my site’s purpose. Thanks to Steve Smith and the rest of the crew at Lake Quincy Media for getting my setup.
