The week started off that the Apache Software Foundation released an update version of Apache Axis2 and ended with notification that milestone 7 of the Apache Harmony v5 jvm was released.
As you can probably tell, this past week for me was filled with PCI Compliance remediation tasks centered around disabling TRACE/TRACK methods on web and app servers and tightening up encryption. The third of three articles involving pci remediation and disabling trace on apache was posted on Monday. Also on Monday, I posted an updated a powershell script that was used for testing the TRACE method so that you can now test for any method against a particular URL. I've mentioned it before but if you are looking to get a very good book on Windows Powershell, Pro Windows Powershell by Hristo Deshev and published by Apress is a great choice.
Friday's posts were inspired by folks searching on google on how to disable the TRACE method on apache tomcat and on how to tighten security on a BigIP LTM-managed Virtual Server in order to disable SSLv2. The latter post was expanded in order to not only disable SSLv2 but null and weak ciphers as well.
