Reducing security risks from open source software

No one can accuse Planet Online (POL) of being faceless. If you have a problem, and no one else can fix it, then the menfolk and womenfolk of the 2nd Line CoreSystems Support group say they will sort it out. What's more, you can watch them on the job -- live. Their Webcam is focused on POL's operation in Leeds -- in the silicon heartland of Yorkshire -- and you can check it out here. They urge voyeurs to "Tell us how good looking we are, it makes us work faster". But if you scan their "rogues galley" of Hostmasters you may find that just a bit hard to do. Some of them look like they're from another planet. Don't say you haven't been warned. ® Over to you Don't just sit there laughing at the POL mugshots, send us your efforts. Who knows, maybe we can run a Miss/Mr Vulture 2000 contest later this year. Email your Webcam details to Tim Richardson
