(Thirteen advisories were issued!) These advisories ranged from a
gpm vulnerability in TurboLinux to fdmount buffer overflows in
Mandrake and Slackware. TurboLinux, SuSE, Slackware, Red Hat,
Caldera, Mandrake, and FreeBSD all had advisories issued last week.
Once again, you may want to pay close attention to these and take
extra steps to prevent your system from being vulnerable."

'Without Peer: Open Source Security,' 'The Value of Open Source,'
and 'The Myth of Open Source Security' all posed interesting

really Blame for Viruses?' All Linux enthusiast should find it
"If you are looking for papers on how to better secure your
system, I would like to recommend that you read 'Setting up
Portsentry' and 'Know Your Enemy: A Forensic Analysis' Although
Portsentry is not the ultimate security solution, it is a great
start for any administrator."
"The purpose of this document is to provide our readers with
