great question

comment What is your process for wiping a lost Blackberry or similar device?
correct, you can't rely on a wipe, you have to use encryption, preferably with some type of 3rd party device such as a ironkey dongle (not sure if they exist for blackberry).

comment What particular concerns should one bear in mind when wardriving?
Actually I completely disagree with this approach. No doubt releasing information anonymously to the public (for their own good) seems like a good idea at the time... it rarely if ever is. I'm not refering to the OP being sued or whatever, or even vindictive home owners coming after him/her. If you are really going to the effort of providing a public service and not just hacking open networks, why wouldn't you also provide said information privately and confidentially like any other responsible service provider?

comment What particular concerns should one bear in mind when wardriving?
I think so yes. The privacy commissions initial concerns were actually due to the fact that information was being collected from an individuals home which is crossing from the public domain into the private property boundary.

comment What are security issues which are specific to cloud computing?
Actually on availability with the massive resources of hosters like Msft, Amazon, etc you are actually less likely to suffer DDOS/DOS attacks than with a regular web hoster. Therefore while the same caveats that apply to web apps also apply to cloud apps, I'm not sure that the availability issue is necessarily "worse" under cloud.

comment What are security issues which are specific to cloud computing?
Good points Avid although I'm not sure every item you listed falls into the security category, but still all very relevant to Cloud apps. I think your last point is a very important one. The individuals security (the user of your app) is at least as important as your companies security.

forensicswiki.org/wiki/Tools:Network_Forensics seems to disagree with you.

comment Computer Forensics: what is in your toolbox?
Actually both those categories which we agree these tools fit into are categories of computer forensics. I'm pretty sure nowhere in the question does it ask only for all in one tools that do all areas of forensics. Sorry for assuming you were a linux fanboy.

@AviD, right... and why don't they fit into the categories of network forensics and logfile analysis? wrong OS?

when you say default are you refering to a patched or unpatched system connected to the network/web?

Isn't this called entrapment (legally speaking) unless the government is doing it?
