Security Portal: Weekly Linux Security Digest 2000/10/23 to 2000/10/29

"This week it's ypbind, some more Apache (1.3.14 was released), PHP (from last week), and MySQL. Oracle has also had quite a few problems revealed this week - three advisories on separate problems from separate groups. You definitely want to be restricting access to Oracle's administrative functions as much as possible."

"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."
