Security Portal: Weekly Linux Security Digest 2000/09/25 to 2000/10/01

"It was another busy week for Linux. Those format strings are coming out of the woodwork. The big news this week is that the Linux Security List is up and running. In addition to weekly summaries, you can now get "real-time" Linux security updates from SecurityPortal. Go to http://www.securityportal.com/list/linux-security/ for more information. Red Hat 7.0 is out - I will be taking bets for the date, time and nature of its first security announcement (joke, I'm terrible at math). I am dropping Corel from the list; they have issued about one security update in total, and in general do not seem to care much about security (yes, they have security problems - like everyone else, they use glibc, and so on). Added are YellowDog and LinuxPPC (both PPC-oriented distributions)."

"We lead off with general advisories and exploit code, then move to vendor advisories. Most items appear in alphabetical order. If we're missing a Linux vendor's advisory, please tell us - ditto for any Linux-related security alerts. The long strings of hex in front of package names are MD5 signatures."
