New Vulnerability Database

NIST has unveiled the new National Vulnerability Database. NVD integrates all publicly available US government cyber-vulnerability information in a single site.

Renmin Ribao (Peoples Daily) now reports that China now has over 10,000 government portal websites. This is a 47% increase in 2004 alone. At the same time, the Chinese government has pressured Microsoft to censor its MSN sponsored blog space in Chinese. In conjunction with censorship, China is also pushing a "real name" identification system which would prohibit the use of aliases when posting material to the internet.
