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

"This week, advisories were released for named, bind, gnupg, tcsh, ncurses, telnetd, nss_ldap, openssh, cups, modutiles, pine, and imap. The vendors include Caldera, Debian, FreeBSD, Mandrake, Conectiva, Immunix, Trustix, Red Hat, Slackware and SuSE. It is critical that you update all vulnerable packages to reduce the risk of being compromised. Many of the vulnerabilites described are root compromises. Also, if you are running bind/named, make sure that you upgrade so you are not vulnerable to DoS attacks."

"Linux Advisory Watch is a comprehensive newsletter that outlines the security vulnerabilities that have been announced throughout the week. It includes pointers to updated packages and descriptions of each vulnerability."
