Recent Threat/Vulnerability Developments
There have been a few recent minor developments that I think warrant a mention.

There have been a handful of viruses recently that specifically target USB removable media, Win32.Agent,wj and VBS.Solow.E just two mention two.  This harks back to the old days of floppy-disk boot-sector viruses.  This is not the only old-school re-visitation I've seen in malicious code trends, there have also been a few destructive viruses recently reported.

A vulnerability in Adobe Acrobat that allows a malicious PDF file to call arbitrary file:// URLs was announced last night.


Things to keep an eye on over the weekend:

This Year of MOXB continues with PHP.  Something interesting is bound to turn up out of that.
The College Basketball championship begins in the US.  I would be surprised to not see any "March Madness" related schemes develop.
