"This week, advisories were released for php4, inn, dhcpd, zope, stunnel, joe, bash, syslog-ng, openssh, linuxconf, wu-ftpd, glibc, and diffutils/squid. The vendors include Conectiva, Caldera, FreeBSD, Mandrake, and Trustix."

"Are you vulnerable? A self-propagating worm known as Ramen is exploiting multiple Red Hat 6.2-7.0 systems. Servers running wu-ftp, rpc.statd, or LPRng could be vulnerable to exploit.

Internet Security Systems, Inc. has written a detailed overview of Ramen."
