Security News and Reporting Gets a New Blog

Brian Krebs announced on 24 December that his last day at  The Washington Post Company would be 31 December. Krebs will continue to blog at Krebs on Security. He has a good history of security reporting, and generally concentrates on investigative reporting and analysis.

He notes:

With a few exceptions, I will continue to eschew chasing the security story-of-the day, as there are plenty of sites you can go for that. My focus will remain on publishing information and reporting that you won’t find anywhere else – and with a minimum of editorializing.
I see this as a good description of his work and his first story, Virus Scanners for Virus Authors, is a good example of the type of reporting he has handled over recent years.
