Microsoft has delivered on their promise to backport the improved autoplay behavior in Win7 to older versions of Windows. This is definitely a good thing and I for one am going to be implementing this on every system I have any sort of control over. I'd encourage y'all to do the same.

An interesting paper was published this last week discussing ways of determining the physical system your VM is residing on and influencing that placement. This creates interesting potential for data leakage and discovery of information about the systems that are co-resident on the same hardware.

Yes, I know this is a small step and I'm not arguing that this alone shows that you should never use cloud computing again. However, I would argue that this is exactly the kind of attack that you need to be concerned about as more and more systems are virtualized and put into a cloud. In addition, since most people are used to not thinking about these sorts of attacks, there is a high likelihood that this will be a blind spot in the development of virtualization technology and cloud infrastructure.

The actual paper: http://cseweb.ucsd.edu/~hovav/dist/cloudsec.pdf

A nice summary article about it: http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9137507/Researchers_find_a_new_way_to_attack_the_cloud
