Lost+Found security icon Too small for news, but too good to lose, Lost+Found is a compilation of the other stories that have been on The H's radar this week. In this edition: the exciting history of SSL/TLS, a UPnP exploit, analogue sounds, behind the scenes of a jailbreak, a free book, and a fond memory of Internet Explorer 6.

  • Metasploit can now be used to attack routers with UPnP. Although the module released only works on systems with certain Supermicro mainboards (X9SCL/X9SCM), that category includes 35,000 of the 80 million responding UPnP devices around the world.

  • The sweet sounds of an analogue modem captivated many of us in the past – and now it turns out they look good, too.

  • Do you miss Internet Explorer 6? This site will help you get over it.
