Dear Readers,

This month Cipher's web version has a new look. We feature a picture by Giandomenico Tiepolo of the Trojans welcoming the Greek's wooden horse. Our previous logo was well-suited to an era of limited bandwidth, but today a smoother and more artistic graphic appearance is possible for almost all of our online readers.

I think that wireless networks are the new Trojan Horse of our time. The proliferation of anonymous access points makes it all too easy to connect to someone else's bandwidth and someone else's data. Caveat connector.

We have four excellent news articles written expressly for Cipher. They are greatly appreciated and show how Cipher thrives on the generous contributions of security researchers like you.

Until next year,
   Hilarie Orman
