[banthisurl.com] Exclusive: White hat hacker tears apart flaws in Aussie net filtering scheme

BanThisURL recently interviewed Matthew Strahan, a computer security professional with Securus Global. He makes a living telling companies how to secure their computer systems by breaking into them.

Over the course of the discussion, we addressed various ways to sidestep the filter, how a hacker could use the filters to intercept personal data from any Australian and how a few simple commands could bring the internet to a screeching halt.

As this interview is quite long and detailed, we will be releasing the second part tomorrow, and the final part on Friday. Do feel free to add our RSS feed (above) to your reader to be kept up to date.
