Just wondering if someone could give me a more direct link to this paper, because I can't access it. All I get is a 404 at this page:

http://www.appsense.com/content/miscellaneous/file_not_found_de.asp?file=URL=http://www.appsense.com/content/miscellaneous/404_de.asp?404;http://www.appsense.com/content/miscellaneous/mitnick/Mitnick_Hacking_White_Paper_de.asp?code=mitnick&cID=7012000000054SNAAY&&bhcp=1&email=

Looks like some sort of automatic language-selection to me, cause I am German and there is this "de" in the link (the Mitnick_Hacking_White_Paper_de.asp part). I guess the Paper itself is in English?

Regards,
Christian Assfalg

The paper is well written as you would expect from Kevin Mitnick I have read
all of his books and enjoy them.

We are actually evaluating appsense at the moment but with their application
lockdown software which allows me to delete menu items and buttons. This is
a technical example flash video one of their reps sent to me, it's quite
good.

www.appsense.com/lockdown

I have a few companies to test against the malware program but none that do
lockdown, does anyone know of any that do a similar thing to the video?
