"A busy week with Debian issuing almost a dozen advisories and Mandrake issuing quite a few. Problems were found in joe, CUPS and numerous other applications. A PHPIMAP overflow has been found, but it only affects some people running webmail services based on PHP, so isn't a huge concern for most, luckily. Also a problem in Mailman - an administrator could potentially get ahold of user passwords used in Mailman. Again not a terribly huge risk, but a fix has been issued. Also, a new nmap beta has been released \ (YAY!!)."

"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."
