[ Thanks to Benjamin D. Thomas for this link. ]

"A majority of the advisories released this week were for syslogd/klogd. Caldera, SuSE, Mandrake, Trustix, Slackware, Debian, and RedHat have all made updated packages available. It is important that you update this package because the vulnerability could result in a local root compromise."

"Other advisories included glint, screen, and xchat. Screen also has the risk of a local root compromise. The glint vulnerability can be used to maliciously destruct files."

"Our sponsor this week is OpenDoc Publishing. Their 480-page comprehensive security book, Securing and Optimizing Linux, takes a hands-on approach to installing, optimizing, configuring, and securing Red Hat Linux. Topics include sendmail 8.10.1, OpenSSL, ApacheSSL, OpenSSH and much more! Includes Red Hat 6.2 and Red Hat 6.2 PowerTools edition."
