  • LinuxSecurity.com: Linux Advisory Watch -- April 6th 2001 (Apr 06, 2001, 18:30)
    "This week, advisories were released for the Linux kernel, ntp, and openssh. The vendors include Caldera, Debian, NetBSD, Red Hat, and Trustix. Soon after being plagued by Ramen and the Lion worm, Linux administrators are finding themselves at mercy to another worm, Adore. The worm scans the Internet looking for Linux hosts vulnerable to LPRng, rcp-statd, wu-ftpd, and Bind. It emails sensitive information to various anonymous email addresses and installs a backdoor, leaving you vulnerable to future attacks. Although information to prevent this worm has been publicly available for months, we recommend that you check your systems again and install the appropriate update patches. We have included links to all of the updated packages to protect your system."
