Are Blogs the Future
of Security Lists?"> Youd think blogs would have taken over security news and there are a large number of important security blogs out there. But theres nothing that publishes with the frequency of F-D or Funsec. Since blogs are usually the product of an individual they usually have a narrower focus. Here are some of my favorite security blogs:One last plea: If youre reading security lists, even moderated ones, dont make the mistake of being credulous. People make mistakes and make things up all the time. Respectable news sources report unverified claims on these lists every now and then and they turn out to be untrue, or maybe not as true as they were claimed to be. Be skeptical until you see verification. Most of you are better off staying away from all of this. Its our job to read it so that you dont have to. Unless its really your job to stay totally on top of security issues, youre better off reading a novel or the sports page.
