Michael Behring, the eldest son of Blackhawk developer Overdose



Michael Behring, the eldest son of Blackhawk developer and former Seattle Seahawks owner Ken Behring, died in Santa Rosa earlier this week after what appeared to be an accidental drug overdose, police said.

Behring, who lived in Concord, was 52 and apparently lived a simple life compared to that of his well-known father. The younger Behring bought and sold items at flea markets and estate sales and bid on the contents of abandoned storage units.

Santa Rosa police Sgt. Brian Davis said Behring's car had been loaded with belongings when he was pulled over by the sheriff's deputy on Monday night shortly ssss after 11 p.m. on Highway 101 near Centennial Way because his black 1988 Mercedes was weaving.

"It was clothes and household items just packed in," Davis said. "Who knows if he was moving or whatever, but he had a lot of junk in his car." There was also a letter that seemed to indicate Behring was going to lose his house in Concord, Davis said, but authorities have not had a chance to confirm that.

Behring passed field sobriety tests but was taken into custody on a $10, 000 traffic warrant from Contra Costa County, Davis said. During the booking process, a nurse observed Behring showing signs of drug use, and he was taken to Sutter Medical Center, where he was admitted after telling a member of the hospital staff that he had swallowed a "fairly substantial amount of methamphetamine" after his car was stopped, the sergeant added.

Sheriff's deputies issued Behring a citation and left the hospital at about 1:25 a.m., and they were informed about 90 minutes later that he had died, Davis said.

Pathologists who performed an autopsy on Wednesday found a plastic bag in Behring's stomach with a substance that appeared to be methamphetamine, Davis said.

"Everything is consistent with a drug overdose," Davis said. "There was no trauma to the body."

Behring, who reportedly was estranged from his wife and four children, was the eldest of five sons of Ken and Pat Behring, who live in Blackhawk, the upscale, gated community neighboring Danville that Ken Behring built beginning in the 1970s. Family members could not be reached for comment on Friday.

Michael Behring had been distant from his parents and family for years, but published reports said that he had recently attended his mother's 75th birthday party and seemed to want to get more involved with his father's work. Ken Behring not only has been a major developer but has a successful automotive museum in Blackhawk, containing one of the world's more substantial collections of antique and classic cars, and has donated $100 million to the Smithsonian Institution. Last weekend, Ken Behring helped dedicate the Kenneth E. Behring Family Hall of Mammals in the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.

Since 2013, the state’s largest utility has repeatedly postponed upgrades to the high-voltage line that ran near Paradise, Calif., records show. The story of the Caribou-Palermo line is part of California’s wildfire reckoning and at the center is PG&E and its track record of safety lapses.

2003/10/30 - NIMDA / ANTHRAX / July 2003 the B of A Programmer Suicide

SECSYM: Security Symposium I



Most of the security vulnerabilities that have been found in Windows over the last
couple of years have not related to security features. For that reason, it's important
that every developer understands how to build secure code. Yet it's not something
that most people have had training on - it's not taught as part of most CS undergraduate
courses, for instance. At Microsoft, it's been a long road over the last couple of
years during which every developer has undertaken specific training on writing secure
code.
Security is becoming more challenging: the time-to-exploit has been decreasing (from
331 days for Nimda to 25 days to Blaster). There is no silver bullet to ensuring security
within a code base, it's something that takes a pervasive effort.
The Microsoft security framework comprises three key concepts: secure by design, secure
by default and secure in deployment - known as SD3. Secure by design means security-aware
features, and deliberate design to reduce vulnerabilities. Secure by default means
switching off unneeded features - unless 90% of users require a feature, the goal
in Windows is to switch that feature off on a clean installation. Finally, secure
by deployment means creating processes and guidance to deploy secure systems, along
with tools in the products to defend and update against vulnerabilities.
The SD3 approach includes a "Top 10" checklist:
  1. Build threat models: ensuring the design models potential attacks.
  2. Removing security flaws in source code: reviewing each line (against buffer overruns,
    for instance).
  3. Avoid new security flaws: for new code, being extra careful to prevent against flaws
    being introduced.
  4. Use managed code today: because it provides many intrinsic protections that can help
    reduce vulnerabilities.
  5. Use tools and checklists: books including Writing
    Secure Code
    , along with other patterns and practices (1 2).
  6. Turn features off: reducing attack surface by removing unneeded features that could
    be used in an exploit.
  7. Require minimum privilege: ensuring that even a successful exploit has limited value
    for compromising the machine.
  8. Add extra defensive layers: specific technologies to insulate an exploit from getting
    at the underlying system, as implemented in "Springboard" (see below).
  9. Be firewall and antivirus friendly: make sure that applications co-operate well with
    such environments.
  10. Create security guidance and documentation: giving the end-customer guidance on how
    to make their system more secure.
These approaches have been effective with recently released products. Subsequent to
the launch of the Trustworthy
Computing
 initiative, many products have completed full security reviews, checking
each line of code for potential vulnerabilities. For instance, Windows Server 2003
had 6 vulnerabilities in the first 180 days, compared to 21 vulnerabilities over the
first 180 days after the launch of Windows 2000 Server.
The aim too is to reduce the hassle of installing patches:
  • Reducing complexity: one patch experience
  • Reducing risk: better quality patches and a rollback capability for all patches
  • Reducing size: delta patching, enabling far smaller patches to download
  • Reducing downtime: doing everything possible to create patches that don't require
    reboots
  • Extending automation: making it easier to deploy patches using tools like Software
    Update Services
     and SMS
    2003
    .
Windows XP SP2 and Windows Server 2003 SP1 will include some new technologies (codenamed
"Springboard")
to add extra defensive mechanisms - inspecting packets, enabling the NX feature in
newer processors to create non-execute data pages, and to enable protection technologies
by default (such as ICF).
Windows XP SP2 will be in beta by the end of this year and released in the first half
of 2004; Windows Server 2003 SP1 will be in beta in the first half of 2004 and released
in the second half of 2004.
