Birmingham InfraGard - October 2006

Its about six hours from InfraGard time. My wife asked me about 9 PM, "How long will it take you to finish your presentation?" I told her, "It will be presentable in about an hour, and then it will get better every hour until I fall asleep."


Today's topics:

(mine) - Jihad Online - the Internet as Propaganda tool
(Dan's) - Two recent IE Zero Days

Its amazing how trivial it is to find many of the Jihad Propaganda pieces - videos, magazines, daily news reports - with a few little "search in Arabic" googlings . . .

The primary distribution points seem to be "large file sharing" services. There are actually several Jihadi blogs here on blogger.com. Google pops up a "Hate" warning for those blogs. Its says:

Some readers of this blog have contacted Google because they believe this blog's content is hateful. In general, Google does not review nor do we endorse the content of this or any blog.

Well, I guess that's nice. Google doesn't endorse blowing up American GI's Hummers with Rocket Propelled Grenades. They just innocently provide the space for the bloggers to tell their fellow jihadists where to download the videos of the action.

More later . . . let me know if you find anything interesting!
