1 The world of computer security has changed
dramatically in the last few years, and one of the greatest
challenges now facing CIOs and IT directors is the task of
4 maintaining the security of their IT environments. The effects
of a security breach can be catastrophic, including unplanned
downtime and the resulting loss of service, a potentially
7 significant financial impact, and the loss of sensitive and
confidential information. This problem has been
compounded by the proliferation of networked PCs and
10 servers as well as the growing intelligence of malicious
software that seeks to exploit and expand throughout the
Internet infrastructure.
13 Companies are releasing new technologies and tools
to address the needs of system administrators responsible for
managing the security large numbers of geographically
16 dispersed systems. For example, technologies such as
Position Independent Executables (PIE) and Exec Shield
help protect against buffer overflows, a tactic frequently
19 employed by attackers to infiltrate and compromise flawed
software programs.

One important reason is the big delay – and
advantage – women have over men in terms of
cardiovascular disease, like heart attack and stroke.
Women develop these problems usually in their 70s
and 80s, about 10 years later than men, who develop
them in their 50s and 60s. For a long time, doctors
thought the difference was due to estrogen. But
studies have shown that this may not be the case,
and now we know that giving estrogen to women
post-menopause can actually be bad for them.
