EDITOR'S NOTE

Good afternoon,

Anonymous hackers last week broke into a 12-month-old AAPT database and a number of Queensland Government websites through a "very old", unpatched Adobe Cold Fusion vulnerability on hosting provider Melbourne IT's servers.

We also bring you the latest from the BlackHat and DefCon conferences in the US.

-- Liz Tay
