(Other stories by Benjamin D. Thomas)

"This week, a few interesting articles were released covering firewalls. "Installing a firewall," and "Internet Firewall Essentials" covers the basics on how to implement firewall protection. In our Vendor section, we have highlighted an article that outlines a few of the commercial Linux firewalls that are available."

"This week, advisories were released for gnupg, php, traceroute, curl, fingerd, xpdf, LPRnf, muh, apache, cfengine, ping, ypbind/client, and gnorpm. The vendors include Caldera, Conectiva, Debian, FreeBSD, Mandrake, Red Hat, Slackware, SuSE, and TurboLinux. It is critical that you update all vulnerable packages to reduce the risk of being compromised."

"Webmasters, our advisory and news feed is now available in RDF format. We invite you to use and customize our feed to provide up-to-date security content on your website."
