"This week, multiple vendors released advisories for xchat, ld.so, xlockmore, Netscape, zope, and Helix GNOME. We recommend updating these packages immediately. Our feature this week is written by Eric Hines. It is a comprehensive guide to setting up secure remote log servers. The article covers many topics ranging from building and configuring syslogd, to securing the server. If you have considered adding a remote log server to your network, this guide will prove to be extremely helpful."

"Privacy is still a major concern among Internet users. An interesting article titled "Protect your Internet privacy by Lying," discusses how "privacy warriors" provide fake names, addresses, and other contact information to remain anonymous. Also this week, the FBI's carnivore remains to be a hot topic. Anti-carnivore advocates are now using this potential breach of privacy as a platform to encourage the use of encryption."
