"This week many good articles were released. A few of them include, "OpenSSH installation and configuration," "Postfix - The Sendmail Replacement" and "Filesystem Security: ext2 extended attributes." If you are interested in firewalls, you may want to read "Introduction to Firewalls," "Top Ten Blocking Recommendations Using ipchains" and "Chapter 6 from Building Internet Firewalls." Each of these articles provide useful information that can help you obtain greater network security."

"This week, advisories were released for modutils, ghostscript, elvis-tiny, xmcd, ncurses, joe, ethereal, tcpdump, CUPS, cron, openssh, tcsh/csh, php, thttpd, curl, mgetty, telnet, pine. The vendors include Conectiva, Debain, FreeBSD, Mandrake and Red Hat. It was a big week for both Debain and FreeBSD. It is critical that you update all vulnerable packages to reduce the risk of being compromised."
