Post subject: Security for IPV6- Don't miss this!

While most don't know about IPv4 or IPv6 protocols, this is still an article all of us need to read and especially if you use a Windows Portable OS or (cough cough ..... Vista) ... Wink

The Ghost in Your Machine: IPv6 Gateway to Hackers
By Kim Zetter EmailJuly 18, 2008 | 8:10:00 PMCategories: Cybersecurity
Ipv4_vs_ipv6

It may be years before the new internet protocol IPv6 takes over from the current IPv4, but a security researcher is warning that many systems – corporate and personal – are already open to attack through channels that have been enabled on their machines to support IPv6 traffic.

Joe Klein, a security researcher with Command Information, says many organizations and home users have IPv6 enabled on their systems by default but don't know it. They also don't have protection in place to block malicious traffic, since some intrusion detection systems and firewalls aren't set up to monitor IPv6 traffic, presenting an appealing vector through which outsiders can attack their networks undetected.

Post subject: Re: Security for IPV6- Don't miss this!

The jest of the message is the internet is running out of IP numbers with it's current method called IPV4 and is implementing a new system capable of using many more IP numbers called IPV6.

While sites and OS' are 'gearing up' for worldwide implementation, the security protocols are being 'worked around'. This is like surfing the net with NO firewall or protection of any kind. That's plain scary in todays world...lol
