"This week, a few good network security related papers were released. I would recommend reading, "Penetration Testing Exposed," "Traffic analysis almost for free, part 2," and "Using IPSec for Remote Administration on Linux Firewalls." If you are using Debian or any similar Linux, you may want to read the "Securing Debian HOWTO." If you are using FreeBSD, "Armoring FreeBSD" can be helpful...."

"This week, advisories were released for glibc, proftp, bind, ja-xklock, ja-elvis, ja-helvis, dc20ctrl, mars_nwe, XEmacs, SSH1, slocate, and the 2.2/2.4 kernel. The vendors include Caldera, Conectiva, FreeBSD, Immunix, Red Hat, and TurboLinux."
