Russ McRee (@holisticinfosec) was kind enough to tell us about a bug in the book’s code if you decide to play with a more current version of AlienVault’s file with the bad IPs data file provided with the book. The function makes an errant ...

Shipping notices for the dead-tree version of the book have started to trickle out, so we’ve removed the static landing page that we’ve had up for the book and launched an actual book sub-site where we’ll be able to post errata and provide updates on sales, promotions ...

It seems I missed spamming that Data-Driven Security (the book) is also up on Apple’s iBooks Store. Consider yourself spammed! As an aside, it’s been really difficult figuring out a happy medium from supporting the publisher/promoting the book to actual, horrible spamming, so call me (@hrbrmstr) out ...

It looks like we overlooked (yesterday) that Data-Driven Security (the book) is also available as a Nook book now (not pre-order).

And, to avoid another e-book shameless self-promotion post, it looks like you can also get it now for your Kobo Reader.

We have wrapped up the book and we are launching this website, blog and podcast to continue the discussion. But before we look forward, we thought it would be a good idea to look back at what we put into writing the book. Since we used github to manage our material, we have all the data github stores about our commits and the first thing we want to look at is the days and times of our checkins. Take a look…
