IBM X-Force Threat Insight Quarterly Report - Oct 2009

This edition of the X-Force Threat Insight Report provides an exhaustive list of security alerts, breaches and the most commonly seen threats in Q3 2009. It also delivers two new and insightful articles by IBM Internet Security Systems researchers. The first article addresses why "port security" is an important tool to securing an organization's network, and outlines some common commands for configuring port security. Strong port security can enforce security policies - helping to mitigate unauthorized users from accessing the network.

The second article takes the reader on a journey of investigating a malware sample, focusing on the behavioral aspects of malware analysis. If given the task, can you answer the question: "What does this file do?"
