Subject: Trustix Security Advisory - ping gnupg ypbind


Trustix recently released several updated packages:

iputils: Fixes serveral problems in ping including a buffer overflow.
gnupg:   Fixed a serious bug which could lead to false signature
         verification results when more than one signature is fed to gpg.
ypbind:  Local root exploit.
Users of TSL 1.0x and 1.1 that worry about local security should definitely upgrade.
