DB2 for z/OS Work: the Task's the Thing

Robert's Db2

To understand how DB2 work is handled in a z/OS system, you need to have some understanding of the tasks used to manage that work. Here, "tasks" doesn't refer to things done or to be done. It refers instead to the control blocks used to represent, for dispatching purposes, application and system processes in a z/OS LPAR. I have found that several misconceptions related to DB2 for z/OS workload processing are rooted in misunderstandings of the tasks behind the workload.

Scary Beasts Security

Back in November 2012, a Chrome Releases blog post mysteriously stated: "Congratulations to Pinkie Pie for completing challenge: 64-bit exploit". Chrome patches and autoupdates bugs pretty fast but this is a WebKit bug and not every consumer of WebKit patches bugs particularly quickly. So I've waited a few months to release a full breakdown of the exploit. The exploit is notable because it is against 64-bit Linux.

How pre-answered caller authentication helps prevent telephone bank fraud

Dark Reading

Prevention vs. clean up. It’s a security question all financial institutions should ask themselves.
