"A few good articles were released this week. Some of them included "Securing Linux: Part 2," "LILO Security Tips," and "Sudo and other ways to avoid root." Also this week, an independent review board issued their final report on Carnivore concluding that "the electronic wiretap system was an effective law-enforcement tool, drawing fire from critics who said it was too invasive."

"This week, advisories were released for tcsh, ghostscript, joe, rp-pppoe, ed, bitchx, pam, apcupsd, mc, pico/pine, and zope. The vendors include Conectiva, Caldera, Immunix, Mandrake, and Red Hat. It is critical that you update all vulnerable packages to reduce the risk of being compromised."
