Security Portal: Weekly Linux Security Roundup - 2000/02/22 to 2000/02/28

Feb 28, 2000, 19:05 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Kurt Seifried)

"A relatively interesting week, several large problems found in distributions, and several major new tools released. Apache 1.3.12 was released, with a fix for the cross site scripting vulnerability, it is highly recommended to upgrade to this version if possible."

"We lead off with vendor advisories (distributions, then any major software ones), then mailing list related traffic, any interesting tidbits and then the tip of the week. Most things are in alphabetical order. If we're missing a Linux vendor's advisory please tell us, ditto for any Linux related security alerts."

"Tip of the week:
Upgrade to Apache 1.3.12, it fixes several large problems, and also includes some new capabilities. You can get Apache and information on it at: http://www.apache.org/. You might also want to email your vendor and ask when they will have an official package out."
