"A majority of the advisories released this week were for syslogd/klogd. Caldera, SuSE, Mandrake, Trustix, Slackware, Debian, and RedHat have all made updated packages available. It is important that you update this package because the vulnerability could result in a local root compromise."
"Other advisories included glint, screen, and xchat. Screen also has the risk of a local root compromise. The glint vulnerability can be used to maliciously destruct files."
"Our sponsor this week is OpenDoc Publishing.
