"Greetings! Welcome to yet another edition of Linux Security week. Last week was certainly an active week for LinuxSecurity.com. Beginning last Monday, ten different advisories were released. Two were attributed to the LYNX vunerability, two covered Kerberos, and the others ranged from PAM vulnerabilities to a Netscape fix. We recommend that you take a little extra time this week to review all of the new advisories released. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us."

"After the 'LoveBug' hype cooled off, the news has remained steady. Security issues seem to be getting more and more attention from the mainstream media. Hopefully all of this speculation will cause a greater number computer users to be security conscious. T his week, a few interesting papers were released. "Watching your Logs", "Apache: The Definitive Guide", and "Security Scanners for Linux" are definite reads. "Watching your Logs", by Lance Spitzner discusses various ways on how to automate log filtering. It is easy to read and covers a broad range of information. Apache: The Definitive Guide" is an excerpt from the actual 2nd edition book. "Security Scanners for Linux" outlines different scanners to help harden a Linux system. We hope these you find these papers enjoyable and have a great week."

"Thank you for reading LinuxSecurity.com's weekly security newsletter. The purpose of this document is to provide our readers with a quick summary of each week's most relevant Linux security headlines and system advisories. It is distributed each Monday by Guardian Digital, Inc."
