Security Linux News for Jun 26, 2001

  • Progeny Security Advisory: Potential security problem with exim (Jun 26, 2001, 21:14)
    People running Progeny systems may be vulnerable to unauthorized local access if the following two criteria are met: 1.)The server is running exim. 2.) The headers_check_syntax option is enabled. By default, Progeny systems use the Postfix mail server and the Progeny exim package ships with the headers_check_syntax option disabled, so customers running a default Progeny installation are not vulnerable to this issue.

  • Red Hat Security Advisory: New Samba packages available for RH 5.2, 6.2, 7 and 7.1 (Jun 26, 2001, 21:00)
