"This week a few interesting articles were released that can help you improve your network security. "Building Your Own Honeypot" discusses how Honeypots are used and gives a few pointers on how to set one up. "A Firewall for Linux with Ipchains" was another interesting article. It outlines the basics of setting up a firewall using Linux and Ipchains."

"This week, advisories were released for netscape, xfce, global, top, tcpdump, usermode, and dump. The vendors include FreeBSD, RedHat, and Trustix. If you have FreeBSD systems, we recommend that you update immediately. I am beginning to wonder if the Linux vendors were caught up in the election. Five of the seven advisories this week were from FreeBSD. If you have not been keeping up with advisories, it may be a good idea to go back a few weeks and make sure your system has been properly patched."
