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

"This week, a few papers were released. Among them were, "LinuxPPC Security Primer, Part I," "The 101 Uses of OpenSSH: Part I," and "High Availability systems under Linux."

"This week, advisories were released for gnupg, stunnel, dialog, and fetchmail. The vendors include Debian and TurboLinux. I'm sure many of you are happy that it is a light week and nothing major has surfaced. It looks as though many of the vendors took the holiday off. I can't say that I blame them."

"LinuxPPC Security Primer, Part I -- Jeff Vagle writes: "So you've bought that new G4 you've been eyeing for lo these many months. Or perhaps you've blown the dust off of some aging Performa you've kept in your basement. Either way, you've decided to install Linux on your PowerPC box, but you're worried about some '31337 haxOr d00dz' gaining control of your machine through some security hole."
