SQL Injection attacks & SQL Fury

John Beynon brings us this bit about dead computer languages - he ran searches on Google for the phrase 'XX is dead' where he substituted different programming languages in each search.

Java is Dead  9990 results PHP is Dead  4430 results Cobol is Dead  996 results ColdFusion is Dead  683 results

It is nice to see that ColdFusion is the 'least dead' language on the list. :-)

Lee Brimelow has been hiding copies of Adobe's CS4 application suite around the world and leaving clues to their locations on his blog. For his Amsterdam drop he created a function to hide a clue inside of an image using stegonography. He has the app online and made it available for use.
