"In the news this week, CERT warned of looming DoS attacks, IBM claims faster encryption technology, and OpenBSD 2.8 was officially released. A few good papers include "Securing Linux: Part 1," "An Introduction to Incident Handling," and "Best Practices in Network Security." You should consider reading each article."

"This week, advisories were released for bash, fsh, ed, me, pine, netscape, joe, ethereal, ghostscript, bind, ncurses, modutils, gnorpm, usermode, apache, cyrus-sasl, nsslap, and openssh. The vendors include Caldera, Debian, Immunix, Mandrake, Red Hat, and SuSE. It is critical that you update all vulnerable packages to reduce the risk of being compromised."
