This morning's article on BBC News that 11 million customers of the Nationwide Building Society in the UK have had their identities put at risk is a reminder to businesses that laptop and PDA security should be high on their agendas.

I think that the incoming president of The British Computer Society (BCS), Professor Nigel Shadbolt, is right to highlight the fact that demand for IT graduates is rising at a time that supply is falling.

We've recently started porting our large .NET class libraries from .NET 1.1 to .NET 2.0, which has to date been a fairly smooth process. We've also been revising and enhancing classes as we go and I stumbled across a rather nasty catch during this process.

I'm very used to upgrading software and hardware, but much less experienced about personally being upgraded!

I am very honoured and definitely surprised that The Institution of Analysts and Programmers have elected me a fellow.

The Institution of Analysts and Programmers is Britain's leading professional organisation for those working in the development, installation and testing of business systems and computer software.

Further to my blog yesterday about the VML Exploit in Internet Explorer, Microsoft have released overnight (UK time) an out-of-band patch. Early news of the release was reported by Microsoft's Craig Gehre on the Microsoft Security Response Center Blog.

Microsoft clearly consider this vulnerability to be serious, since they rarely issue patches outside the normal monthly cycle.

Microsoft are taking advantage of the need to release MS06-055 by re-releasing MS06-049, which apparently needs some alterations.
