This is an attempt to bring together a number of disparate blogs highlighting resources I’ve been collecting over the past couple of days, relating to the Japanese earthquakes and tsunami. Apologies if there’s nothing here that’s new to you, but I think it’s important to spread this information as far as possible. This will now be my primary resource for putting up any further information I come across. I don’t, of course, claim that it will cover a fraction of the coverage that’s out there.
I probably won’t continue to add too many resources to this page that don’t have a direct and compelling security dimension, but if you are interested in the sort of footage of exploding reactors, tsunami hits and so on that blackhats use as bait for fake AV and clickjacking, the BBC has quite a few relevant videos: I know that because I watch the news. 🙂 I haven’t looked up individual links, but a quick Google search brings up several at http://www.bbc.co.uk/: no doubt searches of CNN etc. would bring up similar results. There’s lots of this stuff out there: no need to click on dubious links from unknown sources!
