Instant messaging, movies, saliva and frozen cameras

It’s Monday, so what better time to discuss the security implications of instant messaging software? There is none, which is why we have a story about a survey suggesting 72 per cent of business have banned these sites.

There’s also an item on a CEM installation at a movie headquarters in Hong Kong. Now, I understand the films they make are probably more sophisticated than in my feeble imaginings, but the thought of securing 400 doors, only for them to be kicked down in some kung fu epic, did entertain me briefly.

For anyone worried about providing samples for drug tests – good news, as there is now a decent saliva test available.

And there’s also a story that features pictures of frozen cameras. Nice.
