A site for those of us who need to be flogged when it comes to patching SQL Server (did someone say "Slammer?!"). As SQLSecurity.com puts it, whatever your feelings are toward Microsoft, its servers are popping up everywhere, and we have to learn how to lock them down. The site features security exploit news as well as tips on upcoming conferences and how-to articles. It also has discussion forums and some useful security tools such as a table of the latest OS and SQL Server Service Packs/Hot Fixes to help track down out-of-date servers.
